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

    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!

    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!

    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 Big Papi crew made our experience truly unforgettable and we can’t wait to go back and do it again!

    Highly recommend Blue Sky Cabo charter. 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, Blue Sky Cabo 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 Blue Sky Cabo and their impeccable crew, equipment, and service. This was my second trip with Blue Sky, 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 my day with Blue Sky Cabo! 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!
