Owner and operator of Aquarius
Aquarius Fishing was founded by Carlos Vega. If you are looking for an angler who knows the most exclusive, hidden spots for "super grand slams" (blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish) or (bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook), you have found him in Carlos Vega.
Carlos Vega was born and raised on Cozumel Island. Fishing runs through his blood and this wisdom has been passed down through generations of native Mayan fisherman.
His ancestors bestowed their knowledge of their sacred fishing grounds upon him and this was shared with him by his grandfather and father, who were the first lighthouse keepers on the island in the 1930's.
In 1975, he began Aquarius Travel Sport-fishing as a deep sea fishing boat owner and outfitter, but his real passion was flats fishing the mangrove lagoons and flats for bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook. From there, evolved his flats fishing business. 30 years ago he was taught the art of fly fishing while working at Ascension Bay (the famous Yucatan mangroves and sandy flats area) and added this skill to his outfitter business.
Over the years, Carlos has been featured in many major sports and fishing magazines, such as Florida Sport Fishing, Field & Stream, Cabela’s Outfitter, Fishing World, Salt Water Fly Fishing and The Florida Sportsman. Carlos has also appeared on many ESPN and other televised fishing shows.

I had an excellent experience with Aquarius Fishing charters on October 15, 2017. Carlos handled all the details and gives you written instructions that are very easy to follow regarding payment ant transportation, as well as lures and equipment. I was met at the ferry landing in Cozumel by Carlos and his wife Andrea, and escorted to a taxi. Carlos followed us to the Marina and then introduced me to Enrique...
Awesome Trip and Customer Service
We had a fantastic experience with the Aquarius Crew from before we booked our trip. Carlos is awesome to work with and his guides are great. We were able to land two bonefish, a permit, a trigger fish, and several lady fish and barracuda! We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!!!
Professionals that know where to go!
We had a group of 8. We were separated into 3 boats and hit the flats for bone fish in Cozumel. We caught several bonefish, plus barracuda, snook, jacks and mangrove snappers. I highly recommend this outfit. Carlos was our lead contact. Mike was our guide. Mike knew the area well, and we we're using flies. He was an excellent guide.
