Escualo Fleet – Betsy 38'

Escualo Fleet is one of Mexico’s longest-running and most successful sport fishing companies. Located on the mouth of the Gulf of California, this fishing paradise is visited yearly by an all-star cast of species including Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and table favorites such as Snapper and Grouper.

Escualo Fleet’s latest addition is a 38’ Betsy Riviera cruiser which is perfect for families or groups of friends as it can comfortably welcome up to 10 passengers on board. It comes equipped with outriggers, fighting chair, live bait tank, and top-of-the-line fishing equipment. The vessel also boasts a clean and modern interior complete with a galley, bed, bathroom, and plenty of space to relax out of the sun.

The charter offers bottom fishing trips hitting the reefs and wrecks in search of some tasty table species such as Red Snapper, Triggerfish, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Roosterfish, and Seabass. Alternatively, you can go on a deep sea fishing trip, heading offshore to do battle with monster Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, as well as massive Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish. 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.

In addition to a great vessel, crew, and equipment, you’ll also be provided with top of the line Shimano and Penn International fishing equipment, as well as a range of artificial lures. The things you should bring with you are only your sunglasses, sunscreen, your choice of food and drinks, and a camera. Snorkeling gear is also available upon request in case you get the desire to see the underwater world up close.

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