The warm waters of the Sea of Cortez make for some of the world’s best saltwater fishing opportunities. Ecotours Calafia will take you across the Bay of La Paz in search for some monster fish that call these waters home.
Who better to show you these waters than a local fishing enthusiast? Hailing from a long line of captains, Captain Francisco Peñaloza is still a regular competitor at Billfish tournaments. He knows exactly what it takes to reel in the biggest fish out there and promises to do everything he can to get you to the hottest fishing spots.
Step aboard the 22’ Arca center console and head to sea. Two guests are welcome to make this vessel their home for the day, taking advantage of the captain’s hospitality and modern fishing equipment. Your captain will provide plenty of water and sodas for you to stay refreshed, and he can even arrange lunch for an extra charge.
Fitted with outriggers and a fighting chair, she’s also a serious fishing vessel. You’ll start the day going after live bait, before heading to the real fishing grounds. Troll the open oceans or try your hand at bottom fishing, kite fishing, or even popping. Let the captain know if you’d like to go fly fishing or spearfishing, and he can arrange that, too!
Whatever your preferred technique, you’d better be ready for an intense battle all day long. These waters are overflowing with tough-fighting, monster fish, and they won’t come up without a fight. On offshore trips, you’ll go up against strong and stunning Marlin, Wahoo, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi, while nearshore you’ll be facing Snappers, Groupers, Yellowtails, and many more.
Get ready for a productive day out, filling the boat to take a delicious treat back to shore. At the end of the day, the captain will clean and fillet your catch so you can enjoy the taste of success right away. All you need to do is grab your fishing license and come aboard Ecotours Calafia for a thrilling day!
