Viviana's Fleet - Viviana IV

(44) In demand!
Boulevard Paseo De La Marina
Cabo San Lucas BS, Mexico

Viviana’s Sportfishing Fleet invites you to spend a day of pure fishing hedonism aboard one of their beautiful boats - Viviana IV. The waters of Cabo San Lucan offer first class fishing for big game fish found on most people’s bucket lists. So if you are looking to cross that big fish off your list and want to be guided by a professional crew, then read on.

Viviana IV is a 33’ Innovator powered by twin 250HP Cummins Diesel engines. The vessel features a comfortable cabin and a single center fighting chair, intended to aid you in handling the larger fish you may come across during your trip.

The boat is rigged with a conventional range of fishing electronics and navigational technology, such as a Humminbird GPS, sonar equipment, radio, and fishfinder. There is a full marine head (bathroom) on board and a bed if you need a rest.

Captain David Morales has over 30 years of fishing experience: he loves being on the water and always aims to have a good time fishing with his guests. As a Captain, he is well-known for his fish-tracking abilities from the bridge of Viviana IV. Starting as a deckhand, David spent more than 22 years in the sport fishing business and speaks good English. His first mate, Roberto Villarino, is another veteran of these waters, with 30 years of fishing expertise accumulated.

Captain David specializes in big game and bottom fishing for a variety of big game pelagics cruising the waters of Cabo San Lucas. You’ll be targeting species such as Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, and many more, depending on the season. All fishing equipment, mainly high-quality Shimano tackle, will be supplied by the crew for all members of your party.

Fishing licenses are mandatory for all anglers above the age of 13, and can be purchased on the day of the trip at $19 per passenger. A surcharge for bait is $15 for a Half Day Trip and amounts to $30 for a Full Day Trip.

Captian and crew mate were very nice. I know you don’t catch fish everytime you go out, but when other boats around you are pulling in stuff that’s hard to watch. Was hoping for a little more effort to put us on fish.

Four of us got on the boat (Viviana IV) at 7:00 am and departed quickly to pick up some live bait.  Headed straight out for about 1 1/2 hrs, water was really, really choppy and the boat was really rocking until about noon.  We only saw one or two other boats on the water all day.  Fishing reports were all said low catches.  We were all getting pretty frustrated, but then it was “fish on” and got the first hit of the day, a yellow fin tuna that was caught on a purple, glittered, jig.  The water was still pretty rough, but it was on.  The waves started to settle down and within the hour, “fish on” again with a skipjack on the same lure.  Next, within 1/2 hour, “fish on” again with another skipjack on the same lure.  In between, we lost two marlins and two tuna.  Our captain and mate then saw another marlin circling the area, live bait was thrown out and the marlin took the bait, but got off.  We circled back and threw out another live bait, and this time it was “fish on” and after a 45 minute back and forth fight, we landed a 140 lb beautiful striped marlin.  All of us caught a fish and it was a GREAT day of fishing!  Outstanding crew with a great sense of humor.  Highly recommend this boat and crew.  We will use them again when we return, and so should you.  I sound like a commercial, but there’s nothing like the thing.  The owners of the boat also met us after we returned - super nice people.

We gave the captain and mate 1/2 of the marlin.  They called the company located at the marine.  They pickup the fish at the boat and filleted all the fish for $20 USD.  Don’t forget to tip the person filleting the fish.  We took two large bags of fish back to our hotel and gave it to the hotel restaurant to prepare grilled and sashimi style - the best ever for our group of 17! It doesn’t get any better.  We had so much uncooked fish, we gave the rest to the hotel staff. 

Life is good in Cabo San Lucas - the best sport fishing in the world!  You just have to believe!

Kim was an amazing host, the crew did their best to hook some marlin for us.  Even thought we didn’t catch anything, we saw 4 marlin, a mako, hammerhead, and some dolphins!
