trip description for Cabo Offshore Drag-Ripper in Cabo San Lucas

Come down and check an item off your bucket list in Cabo San Lucas! On this trip, you'll go after several incredible sportfish species with Captain Manuel, a true local expert from a multi-generational fishing family. There's truly no better opportunity to reel in a prizewinner. Cabo is know worldwide as a sportfishing destination due to its unique location at the tip of the Baja Peninsula and its proximity to deep, rich offshore fishing grounds. These areas are ideal for pelagic predators such as Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Closer to shore, there's also opportunities for Roosterfish, a funky-looking Pacific gamefish that makes a great photo or trophy. Every single one of these fish is a true prizefighter, and they'll test your skills, strength, and stamina. You'll be fishing from the deck of Captain Manuel's 31' Bertram sportfisher, which sports twin Cummins engines with a combined 420 horsepower. She's an ideal boat for this level of offshore fishing, and comes ready with everything you need for a comfortable and successful trip, including an air-conditioned cabin, a full head, multimedia sound system, staterooms, and more. Captain Manuel will supply everything, from top-quality rods and reels to all the bait and lures you need. What you will need? A great attitude, some luck from King Neptune, and most importantly, some sunblock. You will also need to purchase a Mexican fishing license per day (16 and up need a license), or for the year, for everyone taking part in the fishing on the boat. Licenses are mandatory and can/will be purchased before leaving at the department of fish and game located in the Marina. Please feel free to bring any extra foods or snacks you would like... including extra beer, water and sodas you can bring along or buy at the local store in the morning. Read More

Explore the Marlin Capital of the World on an experienced, personable, and family-run charter with Captain Eddy! Captain Eddy, Julio, and First Mate Armando provide a full-service fishing experience with a qualified staff and proven captains. On this trip, you'll head out to chase down some awesome pelagic sportfish on live baits! Once you're out to the fishing grounds, you will troll the deep water for all kinds of pelagic fish. Marlin, Sailfish, and other billfish are popular target species, and all billfish are 100% released. These fish put up awesome fights and make for awesome memories and photos, but are targeted in such high volume that keeping them would quickly deplete their population. Luckily, there are tons of other tasty species to catch and keep, including Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Snapper, multiple Grouper species, and many more! When you come on an offshore fishing trip with Eddy and his crew, you can be sure that all of the tackle and gear will be provided for you, and you can purchase a fishing license when you arrive. However, there are a few things that you should bring with you to make sure you have a great time. First, be sure to bring any boating essentials that you might need. This includes items like sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and towels. Second, be sure to bring enough food and drinks for everyone on the trip. The team will provide water and ice, but you should bring your own snacks and drinks. Lastly, don't forget to bring your camera to capture all of the memories from your trip! Read More

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • ★★★★★
    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!

    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!

    Austin S. with Jim K. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

    Another great Captain Experiences trip in the books! While the seasonal timing wasn't the best, this was top notch as always and very up front about catch expectations. The crew worked tirelessly to put us on some fish and succeeded in getting us in some Dorado. This was a family trip aimed at exposing fishing newbies to the experience and spending time together on the water. Success all around! As the saying goes, "There is no such thing as a bad fishing day". Huge shoutout to the impeccable crew, equipment, and service. This was my second trip with these guys, and I will definitely be back!!!

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

    These guys are awesome! You wont find a more professional operation in Tulum. They picked us up from our hotel, made sure we were prepped with sunscreen and everything else we needed to get out there, and had water, soda, and beer on board in pre-stocked coolers for us. Each boat had a captain and a mate who worked hard together to put us on the fish, and between the 3 boats our group took out we caught a bunch of mahi and the biggest barracuda Ive ever seen. -Attison from Captain Experiences

    Where do I begin…AMAZING! From the moment we boarded it was 5 star. Captain David was a true pro and the guides were talented, friendly, and made the whole experience next level. I’ll never forget this day! Shark ✔️ Marlin ✔️ & we got to meet a sea lion. Not to forget the countless dolphins putting on a show and a breathtaking whale breach. Exceptional. Highly recommended.

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

    Captain Casey was very professional and knowledgeable. His 2 crew were very experienced, and his boat is a fishing machine. On our full day charter we experienced bad weather and had to cut the trip short. A minor leak in a tranny hose kept us from traveling at full speed on our return to the marina, so it took a little longer than expected. Casey offered us a free half day trip the following day, which i thought was a very professional way to handle this. Based on our short time in Cabo we couldnt take him up on this, so he reduced my fee to a half day charter. Again a very professional way to handle this. We didnt catch the fish we hoped for, but i have no issues with booking with Casey on my next trip to Cabo.

    Dave E. with Casey C. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    Having fished all over North America, I can say without a doubt that this was the easiest & most successful fishing venture I've ever been on! The awesome staff at Captain Experiences helped me understand which charter out of Cabo would be best for my group, and Captain Raul & his team led by Captain Pepe over delivered! We caught plenty of fish including some massive yellowtails, spent the sunrise watching enormous whales breach the surface, and wrapped up the day with some fresh sashimi from our catch. We had first-time fishers and lifelong anglers on the boat and everyone left in fantastic spirits! Looking forward to doing it all again on our next trip to Cabo!

    Graham H. with Pepe S. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    Easy process! We didn’t get on any striped marlin but the outfitter was professional and worked hard. Great first experience with Captain Experiences!

    Scott E. with Pepe S. of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

  • ★★★★★
    Our group of four had a blast! We caught three large Mahi Mahi and the guys were nice enough to fillet them for us to take home. After fishing, we stopped for a snorkel break where we swam with sting rays and sea turtles. I recommend these guys to anyone looking for a quality, affordable fishing trip out of the heart of Tulum! I wish I had more time in Tulum to use them for other outings.
