Chartering MARIANA will give you a personal experience not found in other tours. You will be on a comfortable yacht ideally suited to the area. Your crew will be native born from La Paz and the surrounding areas. They are very proud of and will be eager to show off this special place while allowing you to set your own pace.

With other species we encourage you to keep only what you can eat. We want you to be able to live the experience of one of the world’s finest cruising and fishing areas and keep it pristine for future generations. Also, your safety is our major concern and the crew will not embark in bad weather and will not make night passages unless absolutely necessary. We want your feed back and are ready to answer any questions.
