Dock 3 Next To Señor Frogs
Cabo San Lucas BS, Mexico

Situated on the idyllic waters of Cabo San Lucas, El Budster has been providing sport anglers with fantastic fishing expeditions for more than twenty years. This beautiful boat became a world record holder in 2001 for the largest caught Dorado.

The El Budster is a newly refurbished 29 ft Californian boat, powered by a 315HP inboard Cummins engine, and fitted with GPS, Furuno Fishfinder and VHF marine radio. Its spacious deck is well equipped with two fighting chairs, two outriggers, live bait well and quality tackle, maximising your chance of landing some hard-fighting game fish. For your comfort, there is an enclosed cabin and fully functioning bathroom on board. To add to the fun, the boat has a powerful Alpine marine stereo system, while the icebox will make sure you can kick back with an icy cold drink after your hard day’s work.

Choose between a half or full day trip, where the crew will assist you in catching world-class game fish, such as Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dorado and much more. The trips include use of quality Shimano Tiagra and Penn two speed reels, rods and tackle.

Captain Andy and first mate Ismael are here to provide all their customers with an unforgettable day of fishing.

Wow, Just epic, We did not catch fish due to I wanted to go out and after stripped marlin,
We could have went in close and surely caught something, we chose not to, I was fine with it.
Ismael the 1st mate was unbeleivable , worked his tail off the whole time, captain was awesome as well.
I’m going back as Capt Andy and my birthday are 5 days apart in Oct and thats the season.

I give 5 stars

Went out with El Budster- husband and 2 kids.  Crew was great with kids. Brought in good size Roosters which were good fish for the girls to “fight”.  Saw many whales and sea lions.  Sea lions came up on the boat on the way in and crew let the kids feed them. 

Highly recommend this boat and crew.
