Baja Paceños Tours – 20'

If you want to experience some first-class fishing in a location that can only be described as paradise, then come aboard Baja Paceños Tours and get ready to explore the stunning waters of La Paz, Mexico! With Captain Edgar Meza at the helm, this charter prides itself on offering trips that explore these fishing grounds from above, as you reel in your catch, and from below, as you don your snorkeling gear.

Capt. Edgar is a local fisherman, and a love for angling definitely runs through his veins – both his father and grandfather were keen anglers, and he always knew he wanted to follow in their footsteps. He’s been working as a captain for over 15 years now, and uses his knowledge to provide guests with angling adventures that target impressive big game species.

Additionally, Capt. Edgar has passed a COVID-19 prevention course to keep his customers safe!

You’ll be traveling on board a 20’ California center console, built to safely transport up to 3 guests to the hottest offshore fishing grounds around. There’s room on board for you and your family or friends to fish at the same time, no matter whether you’re trolling, jigging, or bottom fishing. Your vessel’s decked out with top-notch navigational gear, life jackets, and an ice box to store your catch in. Children are warmly welcomed aboard, so make this a family adventure to remember!

Your captain specializes in targeting seriously huge big game fish, and can’t wait to help you land your very own monster Mahi Mahi or Marlin. You’ll also have the chance to hook into Grouper, Red Snapper, and Yellowfin Tuna. Don’t worry if you’ve never held a rod before – your captain will be on hand to show you the ropes and provide you with top-notch gear! Once you’ve reeled in your catch, you can snorkel and explore these beautiful waters as it’s filleted for you.

Whether you’re a brand new angler or a hardened fisherman, you’ll find your perfect trip with Capt. Edgar!

Fishing is truly a family tradition for Captain Edgar Meza – his whole family, including his grandfather and father, were in the fishing business, and he always knew he wanted to follow in their footsteps! He's now been working for over 15 years as a captain, but has been an avid angler for much longer than this. He loves nothing more than going out on the water, spending time with people, and looking for big fish, of course! He can't wait to introduce you to these plentiful waters.
