Inside Outside Charters offers sport fishing off the coast of Mazatlan Mexico. We offer both inshore and offshore trip from our 27 foot center console Super Pangas with twin outboards which includes bottom fishing, light tackle fishing and deep sea fishing. Our captains have over 15 years experience and put you and your group on fish! We encourage you to visit our online video library called "Catch Em' Up" and see how some of our anglers did the past week. Our packages are all-inclusive for daily rates and complete packages.

I booked this charter based on reviews and did all of my communication via email. Everything went very smoothly. We were picked up at 6:00 am from our hotel. We had been told that bottom fishing was our best bet for good results and we weren't disappointed. Our captain took us about 45 min to an hour up the coast... More

I was in Mazatlan for two weeks and book two fishing trips with Chappy. He wasn't in town but we were treated very well by his captain Pancho. We did one day of bottom fishing and one day of deep sea fishing and both were great. Pancho was very knowledgable and made for a great fishing experience. Our day of... More

Used trip advisor to find this outfit. When we travel to warm climes I like to take at least one day to fish. Inside Outside was highly rated, and did not disappoint. The taxi was waiting for us at 615 AM, brought us to the marina where Chappy was waiting. We left with our captain (Pancho) and first mate, both... More

Before travelling to Mazatlan my wife checked out our options for fishing as I hoped to get a trip on the schedule. Inside Outside Charters had good reviews and we thought we'd give them a try. We didn't book until after we arrived but Chappy was very accommodating and quick with communication. I was hoping for a billfish trip however... More

Booked a dorado trip with Chappy - he was superb at communicating exactly what to expect, what would be needed, and what he would do to keep up his end of the bargain. Sent a taxi to pick us up (myself, wife and my two kids, ages 10 and 5), Chappy was there to greet us. He was not able... More

Did some research online prior to our trip. We were headed down to Mazatlan for my wifes birthday with 2 of our close friends. I emailed a few charters about 3 or 4 months in advance and the first to respond was Inside Outside. Chappy really told you up front what to expect what the cost covered etc etc. Detail... More

If you love fishing, you must book with Chappy!!! We booked a trip with him April 26, 2011. Great communication with the owner via email with reply within 24 hrs. We went with the deep sea fishing, with a great captain he drove the boat out to sea with a 35 to 45 min ride. Explaining all the details of... More

I was on the Carnival Splendor during the time she caught on fire and was stranded at sea. I had a deposit with Inside Outside fishing in Mazatlan for a day of fishing with my stepson.

This is my third reply to this and it seems like TA will not allow me to post my original email reply to address this situation so I will have to put it in my words (although I would be glad to forward the original email if needed). This charter was canceled due to the Carnival Splender situation. But what... More

I first found out about Inside/Outside Charters on Trip Advisor’s Mazatlan Forum. Based on all the positive comments I read on the Trip Advisor’s Forum I contacted Chappy with Inside/Outside Charters and I eventually booked a bottom fishing charter. Chappy is the man to talk to about fishing. He works at The Inn at Mazatlan. He owns one of the... More
