I think this the 25th year I have visited Mazatlan and the 25th time I have gone fishing with Bill Heimpel's Star Fleet. There is a good reason. The boats, the crew, and Bill, the owner are all A++. The crews know the traditions of deep sea fishing, seems to be in their blood and weather you catch a fish... More

My husband and I went out with the Star Fleet crew for a day during our honeymoon! They took care of everything including transportion from our hotel which was wonderful. They kept the boat clean, and showed us whales and other things we would've never seen. We caught a huge amount of yellow fin tuna and would book with them... More

My brothers and I have fished with Star Fleet six times over the last 15 years. We fish for six or seven days per visit so the irregularities in "catching" balance out over the trip. Our last visit was in October and went out 7 days. We frequently saw whales breaching, turtles, HUGE pods of porpoise and birds diving on... More

I'm not sure if Star Fleet has the fanciest boats or the best marina location but the quality of the pre-fishing service and the quality of the crew makes it a sure bet. It's a multi-generational business and it understands the importance of detail. Kurt, the third generation of the family, is one of the classiest, nicest guys you are... More

I have been fishing and shooting TV fishing shows with the Star fleet sense 1987. Countless trips. They are wonderful to work and fish with. All days are good days on the water with their boats and Captains. Try it and then do it again and again like me. See videos of a few of my trips on youtube under... More

Hi, First I would like to start off by saying I have fished a lot of different areas of Mexico, the funny thing about fishing is it is not called "catching fish", its called fishing because you are trying to catch and it is a big ocean, some times you do not have a lucky day. There are a few... More

I love Mexico. My family adores coming but this was horrible. I hate writing bad reviews but I really can't hold back on this one. My family and I wanted to go for sport fishing for tuna and dorado (Mahi mahi). The day started off nice enough as the driver asked if we wanted to stop for coffee. .. great... More
