Captain Rick’s - 38’ Manetto

Puerto Aventuras Marina
Puerto Aventuras QR, Mexico

Thanks to the tireless work of Captain Rick’s Sportfishing Center, trips aboard their 38’ Manetto are meant to feel like home. This experienced and knowledgeable crew believes that you deserve nothing but the very best when fishing Maya Riviera.

You can spend your day tempting Barracuda or bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper. If trolling sounds exciting, you will be able to target Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and more. Your lines will be in the water just a couple of minutes from the marina in Puerto Aventuras.

The Manetto is a spacious Trojan Express which has comfortably host up to 9 guests. She is a well-maintained boat with all the necessary fishfinding electronics and navigation gear, as well as a restroom, a kitchen area, and a bedroom area. You will be able to use her finest fishing equipment and sit on her fighting chair, which will help you reel in that big catch.

Choose from a half-day to full-day adventures and join the crew. You can get beer and munchies at the store near the marina. All fishing licenses, fees, gear, and tackle, as well as bait, ice, soft drinks, and bottled water, will be available on board. Your lunch is also welcome, however, the crew will offer food on full-day trips.
