Saltwater Fly Fishing Trips
Cruise Passengers -
Our trips are open to cruise passengers. Typically
a 5-hour trip works best. You can choose your
start time to fit your ship's schedule, and our boats
are stationed at the same marina where your ship will
make port so you can walk or take a water taxi if you
prefer. These are private charters, so we can come
back early if you need to in order to make your ship.
Bait - About 80% of
the deep sea fishing in Cabo is done using lures, with
calamari mostly used for bottom fishing trips and
ballyhoo is also sometimes used for trolling. Live
bait is not typically used, but is available for
purchase at the marina in packages of 5 that cost $15
each if you have a preference for live bait.
Typically a package of 5 is suitable for a half-day
while two packages is recommended for a full day trip.
Food and Drinks -
There are stores and restaurants available at the marina
to buy food and drinks, but if you choose a very early
start time, you'll want to have your hotel or ship pack
you a box lunch or pick something up the night before
just in case. We can also provide beer ($1.50 ea
for Mexican beers or $2.00 each for imported beers),
soft drinks or water ($1.00 ea) and a box lunch ($10.00 ea) upon
request. Just write your request in the special
instructions box when booking. You'll pay in cash
upon arrival to the marina for these.
*Fishing License - The
cost of a fishing license is 195 Mexican Pesos per day.
That is approximately $20.00 USD, depending on the
exchange rate that day. In order for us to secure
your fishing license, we will need to know the names of
each passenger, so please write that information in the
special instructions box when booking. Everyone age 12
years old and up must have a fishing license to be on
the boat, even if they have no plans on actually
fishing. To facilitate securing your license,
please write the names and ages of all guests in the
special instructions box when booking.
Logbook Tax - This is a $15.00 USD per person
government-mandated tax that must be paid in cash
directly to the marina on the day of the tour. The
tax is used to fund a program where the marina strives
to record every fish caught in Cabo every day to track
species and fish supplies and help ensure a sustainable
fishing industry here in Cabo San Lucas. It is
applicable to any boat 25 feet in length or larger.
Your fee is good for up to 6 fishing trips during your
stay, you don't have to pay it every time out.
