What better way to make the most of your holiday than with a trip to sea? Escape the busy beaches of Cabo San Lucas and discover the stunning waters of the Pacific Ocean with Behard Sportfishing. Specializing in big game fishing and spearfishing, you’ll have the chance to really test your skills, as you go up against some of the ocean’s most prized creatures.

Your professional captain will make sure that you have everything you need for a productive day out. Captain Oscar Mercado started the business in 2004, and has seen it grow thanks to his hard work. He now leaves the trips in the hands of his trusted captains, Edgar and Anthony, who will do all they can to get you on the biggest fish out there.

Up to 3 guests are welcome aboard the 24’ Arca de la Paz traditional fishing vessel for an authentic BCS experience. The small but sturdy boat promises a quick dash to the productive fishing grounds, and comes fitted with outriggers to help you troll. Using the latest rods and reels, along with plenty of live bait, you’ll have the edge over your target fish all day long.

Get ready for a serious workout as you come up against some of the world’s most sought-after fish. Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Yellowtails all promise to do whatever possible to get off the end of your line, so you’ll need a lot of patience and incredible strength to hook your dream catch aboard.

If you’ve got some experience with a spear gun, get in touch with Capt. Oscar before you go, and he’ll make sure that you can go face-to-face with these monsters, testing your spearfishing skills in the crystal clear waters.

With a cleaning and filleting station back on shore, there’s not much left for you to do but come aboard. Just make sure to load up on drinks and snacks, and arrive 30 minutes early to avoid any unnecessary delays.

The fishing trip of a lifetime awaits with Behard Sportfishing. Come and discover the beauty of Baja California like a local!

Captain Oscar Mercado runs a tight ship – or should that be "ships"? A passionate angler of over 15 years, he began his own charter industry, Behard Sportfishing, in 2004 and now employs two experienced captains to take you to sea. While Captains Edgar and Anthony will do everything they can when you're on board to make sure you have a good day out, Capt. Oscar will be happy to answer any questions you have before or after your voyage.
