When it comes down to excellent service, productive fishing grounds, and a fun-loving crew with a wealth of local knowledge, King Mackerel and Captain Marco Calderon are the best choice.

Head out off the coast of Mexico to explore the waters anywhere from 6 to 14 miles offshore. The list of your potential catches will depend on the season and what’s biting. Head out during the summer months to land Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Marlin. Go later in the fall to target Amberjack, King Mackerel, and Snapper. Or just simply target Barracuda all year round!

Whether it’s trolling for pelagic predators or fighting Yellowtail Amberjack, there is a trip for you. You will be fishing aboard the ‘King Mackerel.’ She is a 33’ Imemsa panga with a 115 HP Yamaha engine and plenty of room for up to 6 anglers.

The King Mackerel is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day out on the water. There are navigational and fishfinding electronics on board to save your time while searching for the big one. There is a fighting chair to help you reel in your catch, as well as snorkeling equipment for those who want to take a dip in these beautiful waters.

Hop on board and get ready for a fun-filled adventure. Top-notch gear by Shimano and Penn will be available for use, as well as bait, lures, chips, beer, water, and sodas. And finally, complimentary fish cleaning will be done at the end of the trip.
