We are the third generation of a family-owned Sport Fishing Charter business, founded in Mazatlan, Mexico in 1953 by Bill Heimpel Sr. We have learned to love fishing and learned to respect fish and the ocean. We encourage catch-and-release and we have tried and pursued our customers since the late 1960's. In fact, in 1969, the "Sports Illustrated" wrote an article on Mr. Heimpel, labeling him as "Marlin Lover of Mazatlan". Our favorite species to catch are Wahoo, Tuna, and Dorado!
