Fernando's Tour

In demand!

By booking a trip with Fernando’s Tour you give Captain Fernando permission to make your day unforgettable. You will be amazed at the incredible species that you can catch and observe in the great Sea of ​​Cortez.

Organized by Captain Fernando who has been fishing for more than 15 years, you’ll go after big game species. The most commonly caught species are Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, Yellowtail, Yellowfin Tuna, and more. There are also fish you can catch when you stay closer to the shore, such as Grouper, Snapper, and Roosterfish.

You’ll start your journey from the magnificent port in La Paz, and board the captain’s 23’ boat “Barbara”. She’s powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine, has a tank to keep the bait alive and fresh, and has ice benches. There’s enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time, so bring your friends or family. Kids are welcome as well, as long as they are over 7 years old.

Fernando’s Tour provides you with the fishing equipment, such as Penn and Shimano rods, reels, and hooks. Live Mackerel bait is caught during the trip if you want to use it, which is a great warm-up practice for the real trophies.

You’ll also have soft drinks and beer on the boat but you’ll need to cover your food and sun protection.

Fernando’s Tour will help you have a wonderful day on the water. But the most important ingredient for a perfect getaway is to bring the people you love the most with you.

About the Captain

Fernando Trasviña
La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Response time within an hour
Member since February 2020
Captain Fernando has been fishing since he was a kid and he never stopped. Being the son of a fisherman, it felt natural to continue with the family tradition. It didn't take long till his passion became a profession. This style of living lets him meet new people all the time and it's a great "excuse" to do what he loves the most - catch big game fish!
