Sorry Alan about your incomplete description, the picked up was just a courtesy, (do not included) don’t forget to tell you stay in San Jose del Cabo, not in Cabo San Lucas (where the marina is), it is 1 hr trip from san Lucas to san José, you also forget to said that we agreed to do your trips in a 34 ft boat, not in a panga which you originally get in fishing booker. you decide to not do next trip once I explain you picked up and return you at your hotel means 4 hr. driving!, so you pay $9,000 pesos $450 us for a 8 hrs trip, including living bait and 2 fishing licenses for .a week. I have the emails within us with all these agreements.

Trip was excellent weather did not cooperate which made catching fish difficult but it wasn’t because of lack of effort or the equipment as it was all in excellent shape

First off the person who took us fishing was excellent. We caught lots of fish and really enjoyed our trip. Now to the important part for anyone signing up for this trip. The $36 dollars you paid goes to the booking company and does not count towards your fishing trip.  For this you need to have Pesos or US dollars or a visa or mastercard that works in Mexico. I brought and American express. That card works in very few places. The captain said he would expect Paypal or cash only. Since it was 6.30am luckily we had enough US cash and Pesos to afford the license. $13 US dollars each and the $20 for live bait. Unfortunately that took all our cash for the rest of the trip, leaving us scrambling to get our US credit cards to work and looking for nay place that took american express to eat. The owner “Walter” who does speak english was kind enough to buys us some food for the trip. .

Just didn’t even have a bite! Crew did not seem too interested. Seemed inexperienced and did not communicate well as to what was going on. Did not change anything. Just kept going back and forth over the same area. Maybe it was just a bad day. They were nice enough people, just not good fishing.
First time ever shut out in a dozen trips and October is one of the best months!

This was a great value for the price. There were a number of items that were originally said to be included but we were charged for. Walter then confirmed that they were included and left the overpaid money at my hotel. Couldnt have asked for better service! Also, our boat driver took us through the arches on the way out and that was beautiful and saved us another trip and $ to get out there.

As far as fishing we didnt catch anything big. We had fun reeling in the bonita and skipjacks that we ended up using as bait. We did see 2 Makos, a thresher, hammerhead and bull shark that were activley stealing our lines. We saw one blue but were not able to entice it.

Bring your own lunch unless you want to pay $15usd for 3 small homemade sandwiches, a couple bags of chips, and a piece of fruit.

There were plenty of beers and water for the price.

We bought bait for $20 (not included) but we spent the first hour trolling for bait with plastics. This was fun catching/reeling. Not a bad 5 hours for $200 total for 2 people.

Además de la famosa pesca del Marlyn, también se puede disfrutar de un paseo en alta mar, para apreciar la bonita puesta del sol. visitar la piedra de lobos marinos, la emblemática ventana del cruce de corrientes, el pedregal, la playa del amor. Muchas gracias al capitán Walter que nos planteó la sugerencia de un paseo diferente. Contratamos servicio de Botanitas y bebidas, para el paseo. De verdad muy recomendable.

Gracias Angelica, yo tambien disfrute mucho ese paseo, para ser sincero, disfruto mas como tu, el solo hecho de estar en el mar y disfrutar sus maravillas sin pescar.

Boarded the boat and headed out, captain and deck mate were awesome. Very helpful and great crew personalities made the trip that much better. They were friendly and very helpful and pointed out the many sites such as whales, dolphins and stingrays and even brought us close to the action. This made me a sold person on future bookings with Charley 5 and crew, can’t wait until next Cabo trip..

Thanks John, we get a lot of fun, hope on your next visit in Cabo you catch a big blue Marlin, not a sea lion !

Went fishing on Monday, March 7, 2016

Had an awesome time on the water with them. Very professional crew and the boat is well equipped. This was not the first time I’ve hired the Charly V and it won’t be my last either. As a matter of fact, I’m going again next week. I highly recommend this charter to everyone.

The fishing trip is one of the best activities in Cabos. Captain Widmer is a very experienced sailor and honest person. He knew the exact points to find big fish!!! Enjoy the trip!
