Going fast!

Cabo Sport Fishing is an excellent choice for anyone looking to have an unforgettable day on a top-notch fishing vessel, going after a lot of exciting fish! You can count on this crew to do their absolute best to get you on the fish at any time of year.

You’ll be fishing from the “Marlin Hunt” – a 28’ fishing machine that’s outfitted with a 310 HP Cummins engine and all the necessary navigation electronics. Add a flybridge, a pair of outriggers, a livewell for bait, two fighting chairs, and you’ve got everything you need for a fun day fishing.

As for the fishing itself, here in Cabo San Lucas you’ll be spoiled for choice. Just some of the species you can find here include Mahi Mahi, Cubera Snapper, Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and Amberjack. The crew can also provide you with snorkeling equipment upon request so you’re able to take
a closer look at what’s in these waters.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of any given trip. You’ll need to have a valid fishing license for everyone older than 12, and those can be bought at the marina for $20 per person. A $15 port fee is to be paid per boat for every trip. Be sure to also bring polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen to make sure you have a comfortable stay throughout the day. You will need to purchase bait (the price varies -can be around $20 for half day and around $30 for full day trips).

Cabo San Lucas is a real slice of angling paradise, and there’s hardly a better way to experience it than with Cabo Sport Fishing!
