What types of mahi mahi fishing charters are common in Mexico?

Deep Sea fishing is the most popular for mahi mahi in Mexico as well as nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and flats fishing.

The most common fishing techniques in Mexico are trolling, heavy tackle fishing, and bottom fishing but light tackle fishing and live bait fishing are popular as well.

How much do Mexico mahi mahi fishing charters cost?

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    An amazing trip! 3 couples set out for a 6-hour experience on the Sea of Cortez - we were not disappointed...caught 2 marlins, one of which was the largest catch of our lives at 150 pounds. Jaime was great, he set us up quick and easy. Got our fishing licenses at the marina on the morning of our trip. Coming back again next year...

    John R. with Jaime G. of San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    This was an absolutely amazing trip! The crew was very friendly and entertained all our questions. When we were done, they cleaned the fish, took it to the restaurant and suggested how to best have it prepared. I've never had such fresh fish before. I highly recommend anyone to book with Captain experiences!

    Michael N. with Alberto G. of Cancún, Quintana Roo

    We had a great trip With a great crew who was accommodating and worked hard to put us on fish. Caught skipjack tuna and dorado (March is not the best month for fishing in Cabo) but we caught plenty of fish and had a great trip. I’d use this outfit again.

    Frank C. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

    Leonardo was fantastic with communication and letting us know the weather. While unfortunately the weather wasn’t good enough for the port to be guaranteed open during our trip, Leonardo did his best to get us out there as safely as possible for 3 different days. I can’t speak for the fishing, but for everything else Leonardo was a 11/10.

    Zach T. with Leonardo G. of Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo

    Ariel and Alexis were amazing captains. Ariel is completely bilingual and has so much experience fishing for 17 years in PV but also all over the world. He was super adaptive — he worked with us to do a lot of different types of fishing (we trolled, we jigged) and all in we caught almost 40 fish with just two of us!! He also gave us an opportunity to add on a trip to Yelapa where they cooked our fresh fish, and it was not only delicious but such a unique experience. Ariel was super communicative and flexible, too. Would highly highly recommend Ariel to anyone who wants to catch a lot of fish, learn about the area and have an amazing time out on the water.

    Elizabeth C. with Ariel R. of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco

  • ★★★★★
    Excellent captain and experience; highly recommend! Although we only caught a few, he’s a great guy, trustworthy and also helped us with some local restaurant recommendations and connecting us with some of his local friends. Five Stars all the way. I will be a repeat customer.

    We had a blast with Captain Jorge and Alex. Started the morning off with coffee and breakfast tacos as we headed out in search of Mahi off the Pacific side of Cabo. Caught a couple of keepers and some smaller tuna, then took our fresh Mahi over to Alexanders right across from the marina where they cook the fish a few different ways. Definitely recommend hopping on any of the trips Jim and team offer!

    Jake L. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

    Easily one of the best days ever! Always wanted to catch a mahi mahi and captain Alberto made it happen. Great day on the water. Him and his deckhand Elesio were on top of everything all day and made it amazing. Definitely went above and beyond.Great service great people great times!

    We had a great experience with Captain Miguel and crew on the Christine 1. Prompt departure with all the gear ready to go. We caught bait fish to start and then tried our luck for larger species. At one point there were 4 of our group members reeling in a catch! Water, soda and beer were included. There was a bathroom available and a nice covered area to stay out of the sun. Captain Travis was also prompt in communications prior to the trip to confirm details and provide instructions for our outing. I would highly recommend and hope to return for another trip in the future for a trophy catch!

    Matthew E. with Travis S. of Cancún, Quintana Roo

  • ★★★★★
    The trip was amazing. They don’t lie when they say you don’t come in unless you catch a fish. I took my 8 year old. We trolled deep see for 5 hrs had 2 separate 100 to 150lb sailfish attacking the bait. Unfortunately no hook set but no worries. Travis and the guys took us closer inshore for an hour on the way back and my son reeled in 2 big triggerfish 2 yellow snapper a barracuda and an amberjack. So finishing stony with 6 fish and seeing the two sailfish chasing the bait was awesome. Not to mention your catching live bait pretty much the whole time.

    Michael T. with Travis S. of Cancún, Quintana Roo

  • ★★★★★
    FIVE STARS AMAZING! I booked my first every deep sea fishing guide for myself and two other fishing experts so the pressure was on and I had no idea what I was doing. Luckily Captain Experience was so easy, the selection was great, the signup process through to the day of instructions and QR code was a breeze. We had the most amazing time! I got the impression we received special treatment from the crew by booking through Caption Experience. I will 100% use this service again, no stress and a guaranteed great time. Thank you all so much for all your help, it was a fantastic day I wont soon forget. Can't wait to book another trip!

    Ray G. with Eddy V. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    The trip itself with my guides was more than I could have hoped for. Not only were they extremely helpful, put us on fish, and instructed well, but they even took pictures for us, gave us a history of the Tulum Ruins and gave us a little snorkeling adventure with stingrays and sea turtles. This entire part was a 5/5 stars. The disappointing part 1/5 stars was the whole reason I booked through Capt. Experiences. According to the booking through this website the total trip was supposed to be $650. I paid "$97" through the website for a deposit. That came out to $130 on my credit card. When I showed up, I still had to pay the full "$650.00" in order to go on the trip, thinking that deposit was more of a holding fee like a deposit on a rental car. Nope, that was also added to the price, now I'm at $750 for this trip. The QR code that was supplied to me to pay the rest. The gentleman at the desk said he doesn't need that. I explained the deposit situation and he insisted his price was correct. Cool, way to vet the companies Capt. Experiences. Now for the Icing on the cake. When I went to the actual company webpage the same trip costs $550! So, you have guarantied that I will never use this service again and let others know of my experience of being ripped off, from a company that says they find the best which would include not getting ripped off. I get paying more as paying more, you're cost being $650, I was ok with that, even though $100 for your service was a bit steep, but hey, you guaranty the companies are vetted and only the best. That should be worth something. But, Oh wait, I still got ripped off. Never again. Total waste of time and money.

    Terrance M. with Carlos S. of Tulum, Quintana Roo

    If I could give more stars a would. Ramon and Diego were amazing and I would love to go back we caught six barracuda and almost had an El Dorado but I lost it right at the end.

    Andrew A. with Carlos S. of Tulum, Quintana Roo

  • ★★★★★
    This was our first ever fishing trip and we had an amazing time. Captain Eddy made sure all our needs were met, and the crew Julio and Jose were so encouraging and enthusiastic. We caught several fish right away and were able to enjoy fresh tuna sashimi that the crew prepared from what we caught. We went further out and had the awesome experience of catching a striper marlin! We saw whales and also fed seals right off of the boat. The crew made our experience truly unforgettable and we can’t wait to go back and do it again!

    Richard N. with Eddy V. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    The trip was awesome. Angel and Diego were great fishing guides. Would definitely come back!

    Joedy M. with Carlos S. of Tulum, Quintana Roo

  • ★★★★★
    Highly recommend. Everything was explained very well by the owner in an email before the trip (where to go, what to bring) and ended up catching a trophy Mahi! Had the fish cooked fresh at Alexander’s 4 different ways at the marina afterwards. Capt. Julio and Jorge have been fishing these waters for over 20 years and are very knowledgeable. We will be booking again very soon for marlin season. Thank you again!
