"For years I have been searching for a Baja operation that understands San Diego –style off shore fishing. The crew of the MARIANA are fantastic! Great boat, lots of space, huge bait tank always loaded with bait, and an expertise on everything from fishing the “iron” for Yellowtail and Tunas , to serious trolling for Wahoo and Marlin! All I can say is WOW! An awesome boat, awesome crew, and awesome Baja action!"
"I have fished and filmed all over the Western Hemisphere and have never experienced anything like this. Until the MARIANA, nothing compared to this has existed in the Sea of Cortez. Multi-day trips from La Paz!! Great sportfishing combined with a boat and crew who add a new dimension to service and hospitality."
"The MARIANA is a gem in the Sea of Cortez. The fishing, the accommodations, and the crew team up with the overall ambience of La Paz to create an unforgettable experience. We caught huge Marlin, then turned off the engines right there to cool off in crystal clear water. In the evenings we would anchor for the night at a beach you can call your own and that’s what you get with LaPazFishingCharters.com
Stop imagining and encounter this one yourself, very affordable and absolutely an experience of a lifetime".
The MARIANA is the perfect motor yacht for sport fishing and comfortably cruising or scuba diving the Sea of Cortez. I landed my 185 lb. striped marlin after a 40 minute fight, with much needed pointers and encouragement from the crew. As I tended my reel, they cleaned the fishing cockpit of the other rods and worked the helm expertly so as to minimize the odds of my prize getting away. A few hours later we hooked into half a dozen yellow fin tuna which were cooked up for lunch by the crew with a wonderful Spanish sauce and enjoyed by us with a couple bottles of Chilean Chardonnay. That evening while anchored off Isla Espiritu Santo and a couple of us tried our hand in the galley preparing dinner, three of us tossed on our scuba gear and had a great dive in 70ish degree water with about 75 feet visibility. The swim platform off the fishing cockpit is ideal for entering and exiting the water with your gear … the first fishing boat I have ever chartered with such easy water ingress / egress. I look forward to chartering this boat again with my pals and recommend the MARIANA for anyone who wants to get away for a few days to catch some fish with a few friends in style. To the crew of MARIANA, Buena Suerte and Muchas Gracias … Adios!
“Anthony told me that his crew has been fishing Baja California for generations, but come on! I thought that travelling from Canada wasn’t going to be easy, but the advice provided was very clear and helpful during my travel preparations. Our first day on the boat we swam with Sea Lions at Los Islotes, a famous dive site in the Sea of Cortez……something I don’t do often in Toronto. Later that afternoon we hooked into a Dorado feeding frenzy, that words can’t describe. I had never fished before being on board the MARIANA and the crew was nothing short of outstanding. Hooking into a Striped Marlin my first time fishing was a once in a lifetime experience. The crew kept me in control of the fish by efficiently maintaining the cockpit and minimizing setbacks. I don’t know what to say, but muchas gracias and we’ll see again
"La Paz is where the desert meets the sea; it’s absolutely beautiful! You want to catch fish, get on the MARIANA. You want to relax, get on the MARIANA. Great crew, great boat, and a great place to relax in the offseason. Looking forward to another trip soon.”
