Don’t expect too much, sometimes you are lucky and sometime your not. This is rainy season and fishing is more difficult, but if you happen to get the right crew you will be successful.

We really enjoyed fishing but the sea was a bit rough. Cabo in May-June is changing seasons so the winds are very present. This made the sea a bit rough and for someone who gets motion sick it was a bit much. Just keep that in mind and go fishing in the morning and not in the afternoon if your fishing during these months.

The fishing was a little slow at times, but the Spanish Mackerel were biting big in the morning. Afternoon slowed down a bit. Were not able to link up any Mahi or Marlin, but did grab a Rooster to end the day!

Had an awesome day fishing. Captain and deck hand were great, knew what they were doing and very friendly and attentive. Only thing that could have been better was a couple pieces of equipment could have been newer/in better shape. Overall I would highly recommend this charter, and more than likely book with them again on our next visit

This place is great for either beginners or experienced anglers. If you have no experience and want to get hooked on fishing, try a half day trip and you will be back for more.

I don’t have a lot of sea fishing XP but that doesn’t matter on The Gilligan IV. Captain Epi and Lalo are very cool and are experts of the bay, they will set you up for a good time at any level of experience . We caught many fish including a huge African Pompano. These are the guys right here. Fresh Ceviche for breakfast and filets to take back for dinner? No problemo!

Great experience! They were both very helpful and nice. Make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen. Went to a restaurant on an island for ceviche and tacos prepared with the fish we just caught! Una experiencia magnifico. David y Jorge fueron muy amables y nos ayudaron mucho. Aseguranse de traer sombrero y crema para el sol. Fuemos a un restaurante en una isla donde nos prepararon ceviches y tacos con el pescado que cojimos!!

Booked with Capt Juan on the Blue Tail. Turns out the boat had to get serviced the day before. Not a problem at all. Capt Juan put us on a comparable boat. Andres the Mate took great care of us, explaining everything and making sure we had plenty of cold drinks. 2 hours in, we hooked a beautiful Striped Marlin. Unfortunately that was the only fish of the day, but what a great experience. We’re already planning our next trip back, later this year.

Black Marlin Sport fishing did not disappoint! We went out for a half day charter chasing rooster fish. Bite was slow so Capt. suggested we go offshore for the remainder of the trip. Sure glad we did. Hooked into a 350/400lb Blue Marlin! Fought that beautiful fish for 4 and a half hours on a Tiagra 30w…..finally broke me off on our last run together. Back at it again Aug 18th. Highly recommend!!

We had a great day with Captain Manny and Deckhand Jose. We met at dock four just like instructed and took off shortly after 6 am. Both Manny and Jose were welcoming and spoke good English. We caught seven yellowfin tuna on the troll and with live bait. The boat was very clean and equipment was top notch as well. Would recommend if you’re looking to get out fishing while in Cabo San Lucas.

We truly enjoyed our time spent with Captain Brad and crew this past Weekend. He made sure that we were comfortable, happy, and satisfied on our fishing expedition. The boat provided plenty of shade and was comfortable for a family of three along with his crew of two. San Carlos is beautiful and we enjoyed the views, engaging conversation, and of course the FISHING! Thanks for our first Shark, we will let you know how it came out in our tacos :).

Went out yesterday for 8 hours, all inclusive. Casey showed us all types of marine life, including finback whales, sea lions, turtles, a pod of probably 100 black dolphins, which came right to the boat to check is out. He promised a Dorado for dinner and a Marlin, we caught dinner at the start, and the elusive Blue Marlin right in the last hour. Dream come true and highly recommend, he will not disappoint

We caught quality fish instead of quantity. We had a great time. On the first day my wife caught a 7 1/2 feet striped marlin. Day 2 my son caught a 10 foot blue marlin, we also caught 5 tuna. On day 3 my wife caught a sailfish and I caught a 65 inch trophy Mahi Mahi. The crew did a good job, the boat was very clean. Overall we had a great time and would definitely recommend fishing with Black Marlin.

This day was amazing from beginning to end. Our Captain and 1st mate were exceptional guides. We fished half the day and got some huge mahi mahi. We then went to los caletas island for some snorkeling. We decided to go to playa las animas island and have the locals cook our catch so we could do eat it for lunch. The scenery was amazing and the fish tacos were some of the best. Jorge was all about making sure our experience was 1st rate. One of the best days spent in PV.
