I booked a trip with the Aries fleet as we were staying at the Marina El Cid. From the initial communication (email) to the equipment -- all was great. We were instructed to be at the dock by 0630 for a prompt departure. We were there at 0625 and we left not at 0700 but at 0635. It is a... More

I was a little disappointed when the truck arrived to pick us up 30 minutes late. What made it worse was when the first van was full and the driver had to drop them off at the marina before returning to pick us up. The second van load was also full. I was surprised to see this since we all... More

We fished on the Aries X on November 14 and had a wonderful time. Our captain - Manual and first mate - Julio are both great guys and made our fishing trip a memorable day. We caught one sail fish and had three more fish bite that got away. Would definitely go again!

My wife and I fished on the Aries 10 with Manuel and Julio. They are both great guys who worked hard all day for us. They were very friendly and made the trip very enjoyable. The Harbor Master, Geronimo, was very good to work with. He and his staff are some of the most friendly and professional people we have... More

A nice cruise past the Islands and around the sea lions on their rock. Beverages were plentiful, but missed having wine available. Snacks are provided, but don't expect anything fancy.

The resort packed my wife and I a... More

Ok, just a caveat to start off with. If you look at my other reviews I am not someone who typically posts negative reviews but....This cruise was definitely not as advertised. Our pickup at the hotel arrived 1/2 hour late and almost missed the boat. When we got there people were jammed in like sardines. There was no where to... More

We all had an amazing time on this deep sea fishing adventure! The crew was very experienced, friendly, and helpful. Two of us caught fish before noon. It's about a 7 hour fishing tour, and I would advise taking something for motion sickness.

Had a great time fishing with the Aries Fleet. We left the marina at 7am sharp, no sooner than we got on the boat it started raining. We headed out and got to a spot and fished for Mahi Mahi (dor adoe). Instantly started to catch them. So after we fished there a while we headed on out to fish... More

Very pretty cruise which lasted until sunset. Free beverage and snacks. The crew was very accommodating to make it enjoyable. Worth going in my opinion.
