Captain Marco Rios worked in the yacht repair industry before moving to San Jose del Cabo and deciding to enter the sportfishing business. He was trained by a local crew and began competing in tournaments where he’s experienced success in targeting Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Marlin, Sailfish, and many other offshore species. He was a tournament angler for 10 years until he decided to start running charters and share his passion with others. He loves his job because he gets to meet new people every day, entertain them, and see their smiles when they catch their very first monster!
