Ensenada Sportfishing Charter

At the heart of Ensenada, located on Mexico’s Pacific coast, is a bustling harbor and waterfront promenade – it’s no wonder that this city is home to some world-class angling! If you’re looking to hook some seriously impressive fish, join Captain Juan Cardona aboard Ensenada Sportfishing Charter. He’s a local fisherman who’s been exploring these waters since childhood – who could be better equipped to introduce you to these fantastic fishing grounds?

Capt. Juan specializes in going after world-famous, hard-fighting species, and is an expert in teaching anglers of all skill levels how to fish these waters like a local. If you’re looking for an authentic angling experience, or are a first-timer who wants to go big or go home, join him for a full day out on the waters that surround Ensenada. He’ll take you up to 10 miles offshore, and you’ll be hooking into anything from huge Mahi Mahi to the mighty Marlin.

Battling big fish out on the open ocean requires a sturdy vessel, and your captain’s 38’ Mediterranean offshore sportfishing boat is more than up to the task! She’s decked out with top-quality navigational gear, life jackets for all ages, a fully enclosed toilet, and outriggers to cover plenty of ground when trolling. On board, there’s more than enough room for up to 8 guests to tangle lines at the same time.

Depending on when you visit, and local weather and water conditions, you’ll be trolling or bottom fishing for your catch. These waters are home to an abundance of big game fish, so you’ll be coming face-to-gills with anything from Sailfish, to Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Roosterfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and plenty more. If there’s a certain species you’re determined to cross off your bucket list, just let your captain know. He’s more than happy to accommodate your wishes!

Your trip includes rods, reels, bait, tackle, and catch-cleaning. Come aboard Ensenada Sportfishing Charter – all you need to bring is a fishing license, and plenty of fighting spirit!
