Visit the idyllic waters of Cabo San Lucas, and join El Budster for a fantastic fishing expedition! Captain Salvador has been providing sport anglers with fantastic fishing expeditions for more than twenty years. His boat became a world record holder in 2001 for the largest caught Mahi Mahi.

The El Budster is a refurbished 29’ Californian boat, powered by a 315 HP inboard Cummins engine. For your comfort, there is an enclosed cabin and a 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 a hard day’s work.

Capt. Salvador will provide you with high-quality Shimano and Penn fishing equipment, as well as live bait. The boat is well equipped with two fighting chairs and two outriggers, maximizing your chance of landing some hard-fighting game fish.

Choose the trip that best suits your needs, and the crew will assist you in catching world-class game fish. These waters are brimming with life, so expect to come across species like Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, and Mahi Mahi.

Captain Andy and first mate Ismael are here to provide all their customers with an unforgettable day of fishing. Feel free to take your kids on an unforgettable fishing adventure, and spend some quality family time on these beautiful waters. Make sure to pack some food and drinks to stay refreshed, as well as some sunscreen.
