Frequently Asked Questions  

What forms of payment do you accept for charters?  We accept most every form of payment for your fishing charter: credit and debit cards, PayPal, Venmo, Zelle and cash.

Is the full charter amount due at time of booking?  No. We only require a deposit to confirm your charter date and boat. Any remaining balance can be paid up to and including the morning of your charter with us. It is important that we receive deposits promptly, as we get a lot of charter bookings from the Pueblo Bonito family of resorts, Corazon, transportation companies, and other excursion operators in Cabo San Lucas, as well as from our regular charter guests and referrals from them. Our availability can change quickly by the hour and by the day.  

A few people in our group don't want to fish but are interested in going with us.  Will they need a sportfishing license?  Yes. Regulations require that every passenger aboard with us have a valid Mexico fishing license, even if observing. Children ages 12 and under however are not required to have a license.  As a full-service sportfishing charter operator, we include licenses in our charter pricing and obtain them on our guests behalf.  

Do you provide transportation services to the Cabo San Lucas marina?  We do not provide transportation and recommend arranging transportation through your resort concierge, a taxi or using Uber. Bear in mind, some resorts do not allow Uber onto their properties.  We do provide detailed directions to where we are located within the Cabo San Lucas marina.

What time should we arrive at the marina and how long are the charters?  We recommend arriving at the marina at 6:15 a.m. for a 6:30 a.m. departure. Our charter durations are half day, five hours and a full day, of eight hours. If you would like to adjust your arrival and departure times, please let us know. Additionally, we can also do afternoon charters that typically run a half day.

 

Do your boats have a restroom aboard? With the exception of our super pangas, all of our vessels from 26' and up do have restrooms aboard.  

How much do we tip the crew? On average, our crews receive anywhere from 10-20% of the charter cost in tips.

What can we do with the fish we catch?  You have several options. Your fish can be cleaned, bagged and flash frozen and delivered to you the day of your departure for transport back home with you. You can also take your catch to one of the many restaurants in and around the Cabo marina to have it prepared several ways. You can also do a combination of both, having some prepared fresh and also taking some home with you. If you need an insulated bag or cooler to transport your fish home, Gricelda's Smokehouse in the marina sells them and also vacuum seals fish and flash freezes it. Or you can also purchase one at Wal Mart near the marina. If you decide that you don't want your catch, you are more than welcome to offer it to our crews for their own consumption.

What about food and drinks during our charter?  You are more than welcome to bring whatever food, drinks and snacks that you like aboard with us. There are several small markets in and around the Cabo marina that open very early. Or, we do have a menu of those items for an additional fee if your preference is for us to provision them for you and our menu is available upon request. All of our boats have ice chests aboard for any items that need to remain chilled.

Is there cell service/signal during the charter?  Generally yes, there is usually cell signal, however it can at times become week or drop off, depending on how far we venture to catch fish.

Do you use fishfinders?  A lot of people connotate fishfinders with fishing success, but this isnt always the case.  In the waters off of Cabo San Lucas, most often, we find and catch marlin and other specires such as dorado, sailfish, tuna and wahoo on the surface as that is where the baitfish are also found, which renders a fishfinder mostly useless.
