In demand!

When you’re in the mood for the beautiful weather and amazing fishery that Cabo San Lucas has to offer, let Cabo Sportfishing Crew organize an exciting angling escapade for you! Not only do they have the experience and knowledge of the local waters, but they will always go the extra mile to make your trip amazing.

Captain Juan Olvera, your guide for the day, has been fishing in the area for decades and he’s got a friendly and professional crew that will be at your disposal at all times. They will take care of everything regarding the boat, as well as helping you with fishing if need be.

Now, a bit about the boat that will be your ride and a fishing platform. “El Pargo” is a comfortable custom built 30’ sportfisher, perfectly equipped to take you out for a day of first-class angling. She’s got more than enough room to accommodate up to 5 people and a 315 HP Cummins Diesel engine, that makes her swift and agile. You’ve got a private toilet on board, as well as a convertible top to shield you from the sun that can get quite strong.

When it comes to the fishing equipment, you imagine it, they have it. Penn and Shimano rods and reels, fighting chairs for your adrenaline-filled battles, outriggers and downriggers to make the trip even more successful, and snorkeling equipment for when you’d like to take a dip and admire vibrant reefs teeming with colorful marine life. Food and drinks are also provided for you on all-inclusive trips, all you need to do is show up and enjoy.

When it comes to species you’ll be targeting, a lot depends on the amount of time you spend on the water. The awesome advantage with Cabo Sportfishing Crew is that they can tailor the trip to your needs and put you on any species you’d like to go after.

Whether you decide to chase Grouper, Snapper, Roosterfish, and Jack Crevalle or go on a hunt for magnificent pelagics like Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Sharks, you’re in for an amazing time on the rod!
