Capt. Richard will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing.

After having some bad experiences on different charters in Baja, Captain Richard bought his boat in 2019, wanting to start something that people could enjoy. He went out and hired the best captain and deckhand that both could speak English. With their father and most of the family members being fishermen, they grew up in the local town and have been fishing since little kids. They know how to fish, enjoy what they do, and will work hard for their customers to provide an unforgettable time and help make memories on the water. Almost all of the customers so far have said they felt like they were fishing with family on their trips.
