Aries Fleet - Aries III

Aries Fleet operates a string of quality charter boats out of El Cid Marina. They specialize in fishing the deep waters around Mazatlan for some of the world’s top predators. Climb aboard the “Aries III” and let Captain Martin Raygoza show you just how good the fishing here is. You won’t regret it.

The Aries III is a 28’ Bertram sportfisherman. She was completely restored in 2014 and can now carry up to 4 guests in comfort and style. Powered by twin Yamaha 250s, she cruises at speed on the way to the fishing grounds. Once you’re there, her modern electronics and Capt. Martin’s many years of local experience make sure you track down your catch in no time.

The boat is rigged to the gills for awesome angling, with outriggers, a fighting chair, a livewell, and quality heavy tackle trolling gear to match the huge fish you’ll be targeting. These waters are home to Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, Pacific Sailfish, speedy Wahoo, tasty Tuna, and so much more – this is some real bucket list fishing.

Aries Fleet offers the complete package. From picking you up at your hotel to cleaning and filleting your fish after the trip (tips are expected for this but first mate Julio Rodriguez works hard to earn them on every charter). Throw in quality equipment and a spacious, air-conditioned boat and you’re ready for action.

A great boat with a skilled, English-speaking crew and an ocean full of big game monster to target? what more could you want! Everything you need for the fishing itself is ready and waiting onboard. Just grab your fishing license and food and drink and get ready for an unforgettable day on the water.
