La Princesa Fishing Trips

Explore the northern waters of the Gulf of California and join La Princesa Fishing Trips! This fishing charter operates out of Puerto Penasco and runs trips from February till the end of October. Your guide and host, Captain Francisco welcomes anglers of all skill levels and ages. All trips are family-friendly, so don’t hesitate to bring your kids and let them catch their first fish here.

You’ll be fishing on a 27’ custom built center console that accommodates up to 8 guests. There’s enough seating space and fishing equipment for everyone to fish at the same time. This also depends on the technique you’re using - if you’re trolling, you’ll need to take turns with rods, to avoid tangled lines.

The boat has all necessary navigational and safety equipment. She’s powered by a 150 HP Honda engine, which can reach the speed of 20 knots. The boat also features a toilet and a cooler for the catch.

You’ll explore local flats, reefs, and offshore spots, where you’ll have the chance to target a variety of fish species. Some of the fish that can end up in your cooler are Halibut, White Seabass, Spanish Mackerel, Bonefish, Skipjack Tuna, Shark, and many more.

The preparations are very simple - just pack your sun protection and bring a camera. Everything else is covered by the crew, including your fishing licenses, equipment, snacks, drinks, and catch cleaning service.

La Princesa Fishing Trips offers a fun way to spend your day in Puerto Penasco. Join and let’s go fishing!

Captain Francisco has fishing in his blood. He started early, ever since he was old enough to hold a rod. It became his passion immediately and he decided to make a career out of it.
