Sure, just gotta take your chances on the weather though since its hurricane season. While we were there we had to ride out tropical storm just south of Cabo for few days till it passed. The week before major storm went through and dumped lots of rain just devastating many businesses.

Highly recommend Cabo for fishing. Marlin capital of the world. Been fishing hear since 1994. Don't believed I ever not caught a significant fish. Plus the environment, ambiance and the local people. You go there once you'll be the twice... provecho!!!!

Bring sunscreen and a light waterproof jacket. Be ready to fight a fish that won't stop. When you get a fish close to the boat they run and fight even harder! Fishing with live bait is fun because you feel the fish strike while your holding the rod and reel!

Bring extra cash for bait, licenses, tips etc. We did, but it's not something that can be done with credit cards. Also, bring some hand sanitizer on boat. Throw on the sea sick patches just in case you get a rough day at sea. And don't count on a nice warm day out at sea, bring some extra clothing.

Do not book online. Wait until you get to Cabo and book with your hotel. The often offer big discounts. They also also know the reputable fishing guides to book with.

Be ready for the heat and sun because you will get a lot of both. No matter what is advertised bring extra water for sure and snacks if you desire them and be ready to pay for bait.

We had a great time heading out for 5 hours. The boat was really clean and comfortable with room to relax. We saw dolphin and a sea turtle as well as catching the tuna we were hoping to catch.

Go to the marina first and then ask questions. There are plenty of boats willing to take you out rather than going online ahead of time and not knowing what you're getting.

Bring sunscreen and arrive early and park on the correct side of the marina - private docks . Our guides were very helpful and even picked us up on different part of marina .

Clearly indicate what type of fish you'd like to catch, understand what tactics will be used and get a general understanding what to expect from captain for the days trip.

Go with a great crew like The Blue Tail. We can't recommend Captain Juan and Daniel enough, they took care of everything and made sure we had a great time.
