Escualo Fleet - Riviera 36'

Escualo Fleet is one of Mexico’s longest-running and most successful sport fishing companies, running a huge range of trips across a fantastic selection of charter boats in the warm Pacific seas around and offshore from Mazatlan. Located on the mouth of the Gulf of California, this fishing paradise is visited yearly by an all-star cast of species including Blue, White, Black, and Striped Marlins, as well as Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and table favorites such as Snapper and Seabass.

Escualo Fleet’s latest addition is a 36 ft Riviera cruiser which is perfect for families or groups of friends. The vessel was fully restored in 2016, and can comfortably welcome up to 8 passengers on board. It is powered by twin 210HP Cummins engines up to a top speed of 20 knots, meaning you will waste no time getting to the best fishing grounds, and comes equipped with everything you will need to pull in the very best once you get there.

As well as the outriggers, fighting chair, live bait tank, and top-of-the-line fishing equipment you would expect of a serious fishing charter, the vessel also boasts a clean and modern interior complete with a galley, bed, and plenty of space to relax out of the sun when the rods aren’t bending.

Escualo Fleet runs different charters specializing in different styles of fishing, and this vessel offer the best of both worlds, offering both bottom fishing trips hitting the reefs and wrecks in search of some tasty table species, and blue water adventures, heading offshore to do battle with monster Marlin, massive Tuna, and much much more. On each trip you will be accompanied by a skilled first mate who will do everything possible to make sure you stay hooked up all day long, and who will clean and fillet all your catch for you at the end of the trip.

More than anything else, Escualo Fleet offers a name you can trust to provide amazing experiences on every trip, so why wait? Head down to Mazatlan for that fishing holiday you’ve always been waiting for!
