Aries Fleet - Aries IX

1705 Av Camarón Sábalo
Mazatlán SI, Mexico

Aries Fleet owns and operates one of the best mix of boats in Mexico. Specializing in offshore adventures chasing big game pelagics like Tuna and Marlin, they have been running charters for decades in the deep waters around Mazatlan. They know the area, know the fish, and know how and where to get you on the biggest and meanest out there.

The “Aries IX” is helmed by Captain Gilberto Quintero who has been running charters for almost a quarter of a century. He is helped on his trips by his long-time first mate Carlos Somoza, who makes sure your lines stay tight and your hooks stay baited. Both men speak English and welcome each group onboard as old friends.

If you think the crew sounds good, wait until you see the boat herself. The Aries IX is a 36’ Sea Ray sportfisher powered by twin 320 HP Caterpillar engines up to a cruising speed of 25 knots – not bad, considering her size! The vessel was completely restored in 2014 and boasts A/C, a bathroom, and all the creature comforts you would expect of a boat of her class.

The Aries IX is also rigged for some serious sportfishing, with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, a fighting chair, and more. The Sea of Cortez is home to some of the toughest gamefish out there, from Blue and Black Marlin to Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna, so you’ll be using the best tackle and lures to catch them.

The Aries Fleet team prides itself on offering the complete experience. From picking you up in your hotel lobby to send you home with some freshly-filleted fish (tips expected and very appreciated), they’re never happy unless you are. So head down to El Cid Marina and get ready for some awesome angling!

Gilberto, our experienced Boat Captain, took us straight out to deep water where the billfish were.  It wasn’t long...
