Avoid booking the 5 hour trips. 5 hour trips are great, but when conditions and fish throw you a curveball, the 8 hour gives much more flexibility to get things done.

It was a great experience. It’s a little more hit or miss than in the fall, but would definitely fish in the sling again!

My very first trip was 8 hours. We caught some tuna and had a great time but it was a long day. For a first timer I would suggest a half day trip which I did the second time.

If you are looking for marlin and such, you may want to look at a longer trip. That being said, it seemed as though we were pretty successful and some of the other boats were not so it may have been a slow morning. Either way, we had a great day, saw some great things and scenery. Thanks again.

The price advertised is for the boat, not per individual. So, if you can find someone else to join you, you can split the cost.

Keep in mind that February isn’t the prime fishing time but it’s great for whale watching. A great crew and Captain like Jose n Andres can still get you on fish!!!?

Don't expect big fish in February. We had a cold front moving through. This made the weather incredibly comfortable (high mid 70's in the day, low mid 60's at night) but slowed the fishing down. On the upside the whales are everywhere this time of year.

Bring a sweater or sweatshirt for the first hour or two. It can be pretty chilly. Hat and sunglasses. Bring a smile and crew takes care of the rest.

Take motion sickness pills before fishing, apply lots of sunscreen and be prepared to sweat!

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.

Make sure you take something for sea sickness prior to going out even if you you think you have good sea legs.
