Are you ready for an awesome Mexican fishing adventure? Then book a trip with La Diva1 Sportfishing today! Owned and operated by Captain Francisco, he knows all the best places to take you for the most productive day out. He is a bilingual local who has over 30 years of fishing experience. Let him know what your dream catch is and he’ll do everything he can to make your dreams a reality.

Hop on board his 23’ Super Panga, a compact boat perfect for 3 anglers to fish from at the same time. This boat has a fighting chair, which is perfect when battling those big predators! She’s also decked out with full safety and navigational gear so you can fish with peace of mind. There’s also a toilet for your comfort.

The day will be spent either going 20 or 40 miles from shore, depending on which trip you choose. The further out you go, the better your chances of catching a huge fish. Species to target include Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and plenty more. Capt. Francisco will happily fillet the catch you can keep after the trip.

Children over 5 are welcome on board and will have life vests provided. Please note, these trips are not suitable for pregnant women.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Shimano. These won’t let you down when reeling in your catch. Live bait is also included when you catch it during the trip. For serious anglers who want to get straight to the trophy fishing, you can opt to buy the live bait before the trip instead – have cash on you for this.

You must buy a fishing license before boarding. The captain can help you with this if needed. Don’t forget to bring food and drinks along, which can go into the captain’s cooler on board.

I have been fishing since 1989. I started fishing as a sailor at the Rancho Buena Vista hotel when I was 17 years old, then I became a sailor at Hotel Buena Vista for many years. Over time, I was a sailor in Martin Verdugo's for 6 years where I started to gain experience until I was promoted to captain, where I worked for 11 years, until today, where I have my own Super Panga boat. Today, I have 30 years of experience in sport fishing.
