Aries Fleet - Aries II

Aries Fleet is one of the largest and most well-known charter fleets in Mazatlan. Owned by the El Cid Marina and operated by skilled local captains, they offer awesome sportfishing at a great price. All this in the legendary waters of the Gulf of California. If you’re looking for a fun, reliable fishing experience, this is the company to turn to.

The “Aries II” is a 33’ Crystaliner which was completely overhauled in 2014. The boat is helmed by Captain José Zamora, a seasoned guide and a true sportfishing enthusiast who will make sure your trip is a success. Joining him is his first mate, Christian Cabanillas, who will keep you hooked up and teach you how to bring in some real monsters.

The Aries II has everything you’ll need to bring them in, that’s for sure. Modern electronics pinpoint the best spots around. Outriggers give you that perfect trolling spread. Once you find the fish, twin fighting chairs let you battle even the biggest Blue Marlin with confidence.

The Aries II offers much more than the fishing itself. She was built with comfort in mind, as well as awesome angling. The boat boasts air conditioning below deck and a covered flybridge up top. She has a head for extra convenience and a bed to rest if all the action is too much for you. She has it all.

Aries Fleet is a professional charter company and it shows. Their captains and crews know the waters. Their boats are reliable and well-equipped. They can pick you up from local hotels free of charge and will fillet all your catch after the trip (tips expected and greatly appreciated). In short, they’ve thought of everything so all you need to do is show up and enjoy.
