Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    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

    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

  • ★★★★★
    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!

    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!!!

    Captain Francisco was ON FIRE 🔥 He brought such a positive energy to our trip. We got zero fish on another boat our first day out, and Francisco guaranteed us fish. We saw dolphins and whales. Not a moment was wasted. He knew where to find the catch of the season. He connected us with a wonderful local man who cleaned, filleted, packed, and froze our fish for the trip home. I trust him. Very professional and took care of our transport in the morning and the fishing license.

    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.

    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.

    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!
