Solid Tuna bite continues in January!

January 07, 2018

Another fun day fishing yellowfin tuna yesterday with a solid bite! We left the marina early to grab sardines for live bait then went straight to the fishing grounds. The action was hot and we quickly were hooked up… Read Full Report →


Black Marlin are still around!

December 02, 2017

We went out for an afternoon to the banks to catch a few yellowfin tuna for dinner, and ended up with a solid black marlin and four yellowfin in the 60-70lb class. Fun afternoon fishing! Read Full Report →


Solid Wahoo and Yellowfin Action

November 27, 2017

Solid numbers of yellowfin tuna and wahoo are still showing up on the banks and we're getting them both rod reel and spearfishing. Flying the kite seems to be the best bet for the cow yellowfin recently. Read Full Report →


Big AJs have moved in!

July 03, 2017

The boys wanted to go spearfishing for the day so we took them out to the banks to see what was around. The very first drift of the day after just five minutes in the water Ryan yelled up… Read Full Report →


Fun Father/Son Spearfishing Trip

August 08, 2016

Fun trip with a pair of father/son divers who dove with us for a few days and shot some nice wahoo to 65lbs, dogtooth snapper to 46lbs and a couple big almaco jacks over 100lbs! Great trip with these… Read Full Report →


Marlin Action

Great marlin action on several baitballs! We hooked several wahoo, losing two and landing 1, two small yft, then jumped in with underwater cameras to watch the action firsthand! Read Full Report →


Orca on the banks!

February 17, 2016

We ran offshore to the banks to see what sort of activity we could find and ran into a LARGE pod of killer whales! Before we even began fishing the orca visited us closeby multiple times. We marked solid… Read Full Report →

My wife and I are not very experienced with deep sea fishing. Colin made our day enjoyable, very educational, and we caight some great fish! We could not ask for a more attentive and engaging fishing captain. We’ll be back and highly recommend him.

Our captain, alan, was very knowledgeable about the area to fish in and we caught more than enough fish. However, he spoke little English so we were unable to engage in any conversation in regards to the fishing and what other experiences for fishing around cabo.  He definitely has a gift for fishing and really knew the best spots to get the most out of our fishing experience.  Would recommend him any day to someone who wants to really fish. What a great experience on the panga boat and deep sea fishing.

The license process was a bit annoying- was told one price, then got there and they tried to upcharge it by $8 per license. Thank goodness I had my email stating the cost of the licenses. Never received any receipt or paper in regards to license.

We rode the boat an hour to get the bait near Cabo San Lucas when we took the boat from San Jose Del cabo marina- however the amount of bait we got for $20 was more than enough for our half day and 2 person fishing!

Never did receive snacks or even water for the 5 hours we were on the boat; although states on website they were included.  Thank goodness, I had foresight to bring some water and a snack bar.

Also the cleaning of fish is done by other people expecting a tip. So you may want to set aside some of your tip for the captain to give to the cleaners. If you’re leaving most of your caught fish for the captain or the cleaner, you probably could tip a little less.

Thanks for the review Rebecca, glad you had a fun trip!  Sorry the process of fishing licenses was a trouble, it’s part of the adventure in Mexico I guess.  There’s also licenses available online for future trips if you want to avoid purchasing them the day of the trip.  Glad you guys got some great fish!  Thanks again for the review!

Hi Robert,
I’m sorry for your confusion about spearfishing.  When I spoke with you in the morning before your trip, I thought it was understood that the panga would not be supplied with spearfishing gear. The listing explains what it offers, spearfishing gear rental as well as a guide for an inexperienced diver are available if reserved in advance.  I’m very sorry for the confusion. The captain had lunch, sodas and water that he offered and you declined.  Your trip came in an hour early because you had caught your limit (5) of dorado. I’d be happy to take you out in the future and get you that extra hour free of charge :)

Great day of fishing with Augustin.  He knew all the great spots and we reeled in dorado, jack, snapper and an ~80 lb wahoo.  Perfect expedition for rookie and veteran fishermen alike.  Highly recommend the Indigo Adventures-the Panga.

Colin / Gringo, he is a very knowledgeable young man who was great to talk to. He knows his stuff around a boat and did all he could to put me on my target fish. The weather and the fish just did not happen for me.
