Great trip with my sons. Fish weren’t biting all that much but I could tell the crew was really trying hard. I think the next trip will be a full day so I can go out a little farther.
Crew was very friendly and heplfull.

We only caught 3 small fish but is wasnt from a lack of trying. The captain and crew did what they could to get us on the fish but they just weren’t biting. That’s why they call it fishing and not catching. The El Budster Pride was very clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to book this boat again.

My son and I booked a half day trip on El Budster.  Everything from being met at the Marina and help fishing was perfect.  We quickly starting catching fish and my son ended up with a nice Wahoo and Blue Marlin.  We also almost caught a Dorado and Shark but the Wahoo and Blue Marlin’s made the day. Beatiful scenery too, trolling up the Baja coast.  Would and will go again.

We headed out early for a 1/2 day of fighting Marlins.  Although that did not happen as planned we did catch a few yellow fin tuna.  The Captain and Crew were great, very attentive and eager to catch fish.  The boat was in pristine condition and the facilities were very clean.  There was added fun on the way back to the harbor when we fed the birds and sea lions what remained of our bait bucket.  Fun trip!!

I have been fishing a lot over the years, and as we were traveling to Cabo I decided that I wanted to go see what we could catch! I read the reviews and decided on El Budster! It did not disappoint!  We arrived right on time and took care of the necessary paperwork with Mike then got on board and started our day! We stopped at a little store and was even able to get some snacks. As soon as we were out the first mate, Ishmael, got the lines set - I loved the fact that El Budster had 2 fighting chairs instead of just 1 so my husband and I could be together.  Not long after we had the lines in we got 2 big bites! I lost mine, but my husband reeled his in and it was a 20lb tuna! Not too bad….On we went and then my line got hit again and after at least a 15 minute fight that was HARD I reeled in a 44lb Wahoo!  It was amazing! Unfortunately after those 2 we didn’t get another bite but we tried to get 3 different marlin we saw.  The captain, Andy and first mate, Ishmael, were excellent and made sure we were comfortable and had a great time.  The boat was impeccable and the first mate cleaned it after each fish.  We came back to the marina and saw pancho waiting for his lunch (the resident sea lion).  All in all it was a great day! The best fish I have EVER caught! I would highly recommend.  Just make sure to bring a little extra money for bait (around $20), licenses ($20 each), and fish cleaning ($15) - which wasn’t much!

The girls and I decided to go out on a half-day trip while visiting Cabo San Lucas. We had a wonderful time!  Unfortunately we only caught a few fish and weren’t able to snag a big game fish. But our captain and first mate went above and beyond to try and put us in good waters. They were very friendly and did all they could, but Mother Nature won the day. Since the fish weren’t biting they did their best to point out whales, dolphins, and put on a little show with Pancho, the friendly sea lion that lives at the marina. He swam right up on to the back of the boat! We will most certainly be back on the Budster soon!!

Thanks again to Captain Endy and first mate Ismael. They did a great job getting us in to several Mahi Mahi and a very nice 8ft stripped marlin. Their service and attentiveness made for a memorable day fishing for my brother and myself. See you in the spring. Troy

What a nice clean beautiful boat…. our captain and crew hand were very very professional and very good at their job…. they wanted as much as us to catch good fish… we caught 2 marlins and some tuna.

We would love to come back… i will give you 4.5/5 stars coz there is always scope for improv but excellent trip.

I have to also give my friend Seema as many stars as she picked the best boat in Cabo through FishingBooker, sitting in Cali…lol

Thank you very much!

Captain and deck hand were very helpful and friendly. It was a mixed day of results. Caught some skip Jack and a Blue Marlin. I would recommend them. Mike on shore was very friendly and helpful as well. Looks like they have seven boats in the El Budster fleet.
