Fish On – Private Charters

Fish On will take you on an exciting day of fishing along the beautiful waters of Cabo San Lucas. Explore one of the world’s top sportfishing destinations, where you will find some of the most prized game fish species. Captain Heleodoro Garcia Hernandez has been fishing all his life, and he’s excited to share his knowledge and experience with you.

His 33’ Tiara cruiser boat is very well equipped to get the most out of your next sport fishing adventure. With a twin 350 HP Caterpillar engine, the experienced crew will get you out to where the fish are in no time. The boat has a spacious deck, a bright gallery with a dining table, loads of storage space, as well as a toilet on board.

Their bare boat packages include the crew, fishing tackle, a big cooler with ice, and dock fees. If you prefer, you can upgrade to their all-inclusive package, which adds a box lunch (sandwich, two burritos, cookie, potato chips, apple), drinks (beer, soda, Gatorade, water), Mexican fishing licenses, and live bait.

There’s snorkeling equipment on board, so you can experience the underwater world up-close, just let your captain know in advance. You can book half or full day trips, targeting fish like Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Roosterfish, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Sailfish, Grouper, Snapper, and Shark.

Please note that there’s a 16% local sale tax charge for all credit card payments. Cash payments do not require any additional charges. All you need to bring is some sun protection so that you can fully enjoy your day under the hot Cabo sun, and you’re ready.

Join Fish On Private Charters and explore some of the best fishing in the world off the coast of famous Cabo San Lucas!

I was born and raised in Cabo, a small fishing town that became popular back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, when only a few fishermen could get here, and only by small plane (that’s what old people say). Born in 1976, I grew up watching fishermen coming back with big fish all the time – and I have been excited about fishing ever since!
