The charming town of San Jose del Cabo overlooks the meeting point of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. Hundreds of thousands of tourists flock here each year to enjoy the beaches and angling opportunities. Fishing charters in San Jose del Cabo are what dreams are made of, and you won’t want to miss out during your visit. Settle in for an adrenaline-pumping experience that will make your holiday unforgettable!
 
Within just a few miles from shore, you can find Snappers, Groupers, Yellowtails, and the exotic Roosterfish! Even Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi come close to shore, favoring the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez, so you can land some delicious meat. 
 
Head a little further out, and you’ll witness sights you could only dream of.  Numerous banks and underwater ledges make these fishing grounds a Billfish paradise, with Sailfish, Swordfish, and three types of Marlin on the menu. Be careful, though, as you may end up hooking a fearsome Shark!
 
With such a range of fishing grounds right on the town’s doorstep, you can fill the boat on a trip as short as four hours. These trips are popular with families and beginners, while avid anglers prefer the chance to head to the deep. Spend upwards of eight hours on the waters and head to the deep seas, where you can go after that trophy catch.
 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler will need a sportfishing license to cast a line here, but most San Jose del Cabo fishing charters actually provide it for you. Catch and release rules aren’t as strict as in the US, although most captains prefer to release Billfish for conservation purposes. In any case, heading out with a professional captain will ensure that you’re fishing within the law.

January

If your new year's resolution is to catch the biggest fish of your life, you're starting things well visiting San Jose Del Cabo. Marlin are always here and there are plenty of guides to get you on one... or ten!

February

Spend the day battling huge Striped Marlin offshore then head back to town to enjoy amazing live music at the San Jose Jazz Weekend. Things don't get much better than this!

March

The Fiesta de San Jose celebrates the town's patron saint in style, with two full weeks of festivals, processions, music, and dancing. If it gets too much, you can always escape offshore for more Marlin!

April

April iss a great month to head into the Sea of Cortez in search of food fish. Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Yellowtail are all in season and are biting like crazy on the reefs and banks.

May

Baja California Sur's inshore action explodes in May. Roosterfish, Snook, Jacks, and Mackerel can all be caught this time of year. Jump aboard a local panga and head out in search of remote beaches.

June

The Stars & Stripes Striped Marlin Tournament signals the start of the real big game action. Sure, you can find Billfish all year round here, but from now on you've got four at once!

July

Black Marlin have finally caught up with their Blue and Striped Cousins, and all three species are on fire offshore. You've also got Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna. Fish on!

August

The first of the Bisbees Tournament Series kicks off at the beginning of August with the East Cape Offshore. The series brings together the world's best anglers to compete for millions of dollars in prizes!

September

As the year goes on, the big game bite just gets better and better. Inshore, things are just as good, with some of the biggest Snook and Roosterfish you'll ever see in your life.

October

The Bisbees Black & Blue and Los Cabos Offshore Fishing Tournaments dominate the Cabos. You'll be lucky to find a hotel, let alone a fishing charter. It's well worth checking out if you're in town, though.

November

The Bisbees may be done for the year, but tournament season isn't over quite yet! The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament keeps the action going, with huge hookups and serious competition.

December

December is possibly the best time to visit San Jose Del Cabo. Every major gamefish is on form and the temperatures are low enough to enjoy the action. Take your pick and enjoy!

Keep an open mind, don't let what you want to catch, versus what you do catch determine the quality of time on the water. Because, remember, its all about the tug!

Understand the basics of a sea rod and how to reel in a fish, otherwise expect a long trip with no fish. Captain can help you out with reeling it in, but may not know enough English to explain the concepts if you are a complete beginner.

We had a great trip and caught a 7 foot marlin! The guide spoke little English but was a huge help and was very kind. There is no free transportation after the trip and the licenses are $20 each. That being said, the boss was very kind and respected what the website said. Very nice people, very satisfied! Was a great safe trip and couldn’t be happier with our catch!

I have fished Los Cabos 6 times, the last 2 years with Daliken on the Kokopelli. Last October, we caught a yellowfin, a dorado, and 7 red snapper. Today however, we had a day of fishing I didn't think was possible. We caught 3 skipjack, a big dorado, hooked 7 marlin, and got 5 of them to the boat. A great day with a great crew. We will book the Kokopelli again next year. Thanks, guys!

Great time with captain Marcelo. The boat we booked was broken the day of so we took a 26’ super panga out. Conditions were overcast and rough with 2-3 rollers and heavy wind. Trolled for a while and decided to come near shore and switched to light tackle and live bait. Hooked 15 roosters and a good jack. Bait and birds weren’t working this day. Guide was a good old salt and very friendly. I had a fantastic time and highly recommend daliken! Thank y’all!

The captain and first made worked really hard to put us on the fish and hook some up. Everyone in the boat caught at least one fish on a slow day when other boats are not catching much at all. They will also Provision the boat with lunch and beer on your request. You do pay extra for this.

There is only one thing that separates these guys from the rest of the crowd, and that’s Pancho! He knows these waters and how to fish them, given the season and conditions like no other. I have fished all my life, all over the world, I was a fishing guide in Alaska for years. If you’re a real fisherman or fisherwoman you will know Poncho is the real fucking deal!

After blanking the day before with a different captain Jesus put us on the fish and we managed to bring a cooler full of Dorado back to the states with us! Very friendly guys and they made us feel like we belonged! The boat was perfect for the 5 of us. Cant wait to do it again! Thanks for the great trip!!!

Captain Pollo (Jesús) and deckhand Alejandro did a great job. These guys know their stuff. The boat has two bimini' to get out of the sun. They have plenty of fishing equipment to address whatever fish you are targeting. Second day of fishing with Captain Pollo we hooked up and landed a nice Black Marlin. We will definitely use Captain Pollo next year when we go to Cabo.
