Leave the bustling cultural hub of La Paz behind, and discover the open seas’ serene beauty. La Shina Sport Fishing invites you to explore the incredible marine life of the Gulf of California. Its mixture of reefs and unnaturally deep spots close to shore makes it a melting pot of extraordinary fish. The boat is operated by two captains, Jose and Carlos. Captain Jose Veliz has been fishing these waters for over 15 years, running charters for over 10, and claims his biggest thrill is seeing customers enjoying themselves. Carlos Ojeda Espinoza has 30 years of sport fishing experience and knows the area like his back pocket!

Trips take place aboard a 22’ Super Panga center console. A compact but agile vessel, she can traverse all kinds of water, and can accommodate up to 4 guests plus the crew. She offers some shade so that you can keep out of the sun, but you can also revel in it, with plenty of open space, too. She’s also a serious fishing boat. Fitted with outriggers, tuna tubes, and a live well, you’ll be on top as you try to lure and reel in some huge fish.

Hit the reefs for some exceptional nearshore fishing. Try bottom fishing to entice delicious Snappers and Groupers, and you may also catch Spanish Mackerel, exotic Roosterfish, and more. Try snorkeling for an extra cost to swim closely with these beautiful specimen. When offshore, the waters are deep and the fish are huge. From beautiful, prized Marlin, to delicious Tuna and Mahi Mahi, you’ll need all your strength to hook ‘em aboard.

At the end of your trip, the first mate will clean and prepare your fish for you to take to a restaurant and have it served up to you. From the start of the day – when you’ll be picked up at a hotel of your choice – right through to the end, you’ll be the boss. Trips with La Shina Sport Fishing have it all. All ages are welcome aboard, so come and make the most of these outstanding waters.

Captain Jose Veliz has been fishing the Gulf of California's warm waters since around 2003. He enjoyed being on the water so much that in 2008, he decided to start running charters, to share his knowledge with others. While he still loves getting out on the open sea, he gets his biggest kick out of seeing customers land as many fish as possible, and ending the day with a big smile on their faces.
