Black Marlin Sportfishing

Catch your next trophy fish with Black Marlin Sportfishing! Let Captain Manuel and his crew be your guides on your next trip, as they have more than 20 years of experience in the business. As fishing is a family tradition and something he does every day, you can be sure you’re in the right hands.

Capt. Manuel is proud to welcome you on his newly rebuilt 31’ Bertram. Fishing on this comfortable, sportfishing boat has everything you need for a great day on the water. This boat has a big ice chest for all your drinks, two fighting chairs, a restroom, a bathroom, and an eating table. There’s a big canopy to keep you away from sun on a hot day and plenty of room inside, to lay down on longer trips.

The boat easily accommodates up to 4 guests, so bring your group, even if some of them are not fishing enthusiasts.

When it comes to fish you’ll target for the day, only the most exciting species are selected – Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Roosterfish, and Sailfish. How to get them? Well, you need a bit of muscle strength and quality fishing equipment. The latter is covered by the crew – they have light, medium, and heavy tackle on the boat. With this Shimano and Penn tackle, you can even fight a 500-pound fish!

You only need to bring your sunscreen and sunglasses. And don’t forget to charge your phone and take amazing photos – there’s going to be lots of them!

Black Marlin Sportfishing is your ticket to an unforgettable day on the water. Just choose when you’re coming!

When it comes to fishing, it truly is a family tradition for Capt. Manuel – all of his cousins brothers and his father are avid anglers, too! Capt. Manuel has been fishing since 2001, and has been a licensed captain since 2009. He loves the excitement of chasing and reeling in different types of fish, as well as helping his guests hook their first – or best! – catch. Join him on board the 31' Bertram "Black Marlin" and get ready to be welcomed into his fishing family. Capt. Manuel knows this water of Cabo San Lucas as his owns hands, he always find fish becouse he knows where they are and he knows what they like to eat. Thank you and see you on the dock.
