“Great fishing trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

My boyfriend and I went fishing last week with this company. We were recommended to them by locals and we're glad we booked with them. We went out of the old harbor by Stone Island. We had smooth waters through out the whole trip which was nice. It was just my boyfriend and me on the boat along with 2 people who ran it. We saw lots of turtles out on the water but nothing else. We caught 1 Mahi Mahi, 2 or 3 Bonita's, and 1 Mackerel. We actually used the 2 Bonita's as bait. My boyfriend really enjoyed fishing with them... I did too but I wanted to catch more. He had to explain to me that it's called "fishing" not "catching" so that made since. We had a lot fun out there, soaking up the sun, fishing, and relaxing. We had to bring our own drinks, snacks, and lunch but they have a cooler that you can keep it in. When we got back to the harbor they cut up the Mahi Mahi for us so we could take it to a restaurant to have it cooked. I wish we could have caught more fish or a Marlin but the crew tried very hard to get us more fish to catch. We would fish with them again so check them out!

“Amazing Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Took 3 days out with StarFleet and had a lifetime experience! Caught a nice Yellowfin Tuna and a nice Sailfish. Saw lots of wildlife. (green turtles, hammerhead shark, dolphins, etc). Not the right season for Marlin but we'll be back. Being our first time in Mazatlan the owner took us around town and introduced us to some of his favorite places and loaned us some snorkel gear.
StarFleets staff treated us like royalty! I will never forget any of it!

“Great time with StarFleet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

These guys are amazing! I had never been fishing on the ocean before, and to be honest was a bit worried about getting sea sick... The day we went out was super calm though, and we had an awesome time. There were lots of cold drinks on board and our crew were very attentive. Now I can honestly say that fishing isn't typically my "thing", but this was really something else! We caught two fish, a Sailfish and a Tuna...and they were huge! I couldn't believe it! Id never caught a fish any bigger than a pickerel at my lake in Canada! Anyway, we ate our tuna later that night at a place recommended by Bill...delicious! I would recommend StarFleet to anyone looking to go fishing in Mazatlan! Two thumbs up!

“An experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

Crew was very focused on the task at hand didn't have any luck just the time of year I guess the boat seemed slow compared to the other boats zipping by us, but the crew worked very hard to try and get us a fish 2 thumbs up to them.
