La Buenavida Sportfishing

Come and enjoy a great day in the sea of Cortez! Join Captain Esaul on his boat, La Buenavida Sportfishing, and treat yourself and your friends and family with a few hours of pure excitement.

Being born and raised in the area, Capt. Esaul specializes in offshore fishing for big game fish. However, this doesn’t mean these trips are just for the experienced anglers. Join regardless of your skill level, as the only necessary ingredient is a positive attitude. And your adventure can start!

La Buenavida Sportfishing is a 35’ Cabo Express boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This fishing machine has everything you can think of for a great day on the water - from twin 435 HP Caterpillar engines and a fighting chair, to trolling gear and a live bait tank. Rest assured, there’s no lack of comfort on the boat either. You can relax in an enclosed air-conditioned cabin, use the kitchen, and a private bathroom.

You’ll fish the waters around East Cape and target big offshore species, such as Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Marlin. You can go after these fish even if you’re a beginner, but if you want to start things slow, go after Cubera Snapper, Giant Seabass, or Roosterfish.

The crew takes care of your fishing equipment and cleans your catch. This means you’ll only need to prepare your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks.

La Buenavida Sportfishing and a true adventure are only a few clicks away!
