Planning for your sport fishing charters can be a very exciting and confusing process. You can reserve anything from a 24’ panga to a 110’ super yacht with amenities ranging from simple fishing gear to full kitchens and waverunners on board. Here is a brief breakdown of the popular sizes of boats, their average prices, and what amenities are on the boat. For a full description, visit the Charter’s web site where you can also make your reservation. After you pick a charter boat, read the rest of our Cabo San Lucas fishing guide to get you prepared for the trip of a lifetime.

Boat Sizes:

What is or isn’t included?

When you are choosing a charter boat for your fishing adventure, you need to confirm in advance what is and is not included in the advertised price. Almost all of the Cabo San Lucas charters have a phone number with someone that speaks English willing to answer questions. Give them a call and ask about the following items to figure out what the true cost of taking the boat out for a day will be.

Sharing a Charter Boat

Another option to consider when planning your charter is if you would like to share a boat with another group to cut down on costs. Advantages of a shared charter are that if you have a small group, you can split the cost with another party and save that money for another shared charter during your trip. You also might get to meet some really great people that you could later hang out with in Cabo. Problems that may arise include people having different catch and release views, one party getting seasick, 8 hours of time with someone you might not like, deciding who gets to catch the big marlin or gamefish of the day, and if the other party doesn’t show your trip is cancelled unless you are willing to pay the full charter price. It is a good option if you have just 1 or 2 people, but just be aware of the potential problems if you go this route.

Our first time in Cabo, and your accommodations certainly spoiled us! We really enjoyed the activities here as well as Vill del Palmar which was great for the kids. We thank you! Tom and Jodie

Sorry for the delay in expressing my thanks to you for a truly enjoyable stay at the penthouse suite at Villa La Estancia. It was everything you said it would be and much, much more!!! The whole venue was great, but that unit is truly awesome!!! My entire family had a fantastic time. We look forward to the next time, and shall certainly call you to make the arrangements and accommodations for us. As always you made the whole experience outstanding.

We had great time and fell in love with the resort and the area. All resort personnel we dealt with was very courteous and attentive. The accommodations were worth every penny, thanks to you. We are definitely looking to go back there, perhaps, March or April of 2015.

Thanks for taking the time to come to La Gringa marina to meet us before our sunset cruise! We had a wonderful time in Cabo with our family. The penthouse suite at Villa Del Arco was beautiful. We had our New Years Eve dinner there, steaks on the grill and could see the fireworks from our room. It was great to have a hot tub right there. We ate most of our lunches at the Buccaneer and went into town for dinner. Your recommendations were helpful. The kids enjoyed the kayaks and jet skis. We appreciate all your help in arranging transfers and the sunset cruise. It was a very enjoyable trip for our family. Hope to see you again sometime.

My wife and I absolutely loved our 10 day stay at Villa La Estancia in Los Cabos. We stayed in Villa 1208 and the unit was amazing! With the hotel units being owned it is calmer and more elegant than most of the other resorts there. One of the highlights of our vacation was going out of the Marina on the "La Gringa Boat Tour" with our new friends. It is Cabo's newest powered catamaran tour, offering unforgettable whale watching, snorkeling and fun filled sunset tours that include the iconic Cabo Arch at Land's End on the confluence of the tranquil Sea of Cortez and mighty Pacific Ocean. The La Gringa crew was fun, informative, friendly and entertaining. They served us up a delicious lunch and snacks, chips, guacamole, and Mexican salsa with complementary open bar and soft drinks. We saw Blue whales and had a fantastic lunch then enjoyed snorkeling the calm, fish filled shallow waters off a secluded beach. The entire trip was first class and a great value, we are looking forward to going back soon. Thank you! David & Tricia

Our Cabo vacation at Villa la Estancia far exceeded our expectations. While I am always nervous about accommodations in foreign countries, Bob from EstanciaCabo.com was quick to answer all my questions and calm my fears. Check in at the hotel was a breeze, and the staff could not have been more helpful! The room was very clean, spacious, and beautiful. Additionally, the grounds of the hotel were pristine. Not a day went by when the staff wasn't constantly cleaning, trimming, and polishing. Estancia is the perfect distance from town - a 3 minute cab ride or short walk along the beach. We could not have been happier with our experience! We were so happy with Estancia that we are having all our guests stay there for our June 2011 wedding, and we will certainly be using EstanciaCabo.como for all of our reservations! Thank you so much, Patrick and Donielle (St Louis, MO)

Bob, thanks again - everything was perfect in Cabo with your help. I would recommend you to any of my friends and relatives to use your service if traveling to Cabo. Hope we can team up again Joe

We wanted to send a quick note to say that we SO enjoyed our family vacation. It was exactly what we hoped for! We did not do any of the extra excursions or tours because we had 2 little ones with us but we had a wonderful relaxing vacation and we were beyond comfortable in our lovely room. After our first night the hotel was able to accommodate our request and move us to a ground floor room with patio/pool access (room 1105) and it was perfect for our family. We arrived in the evening and declined to tour the resort the next morning, so we didn't buy the timeshare but its very possible that we will return again. Thank you for all your help! Also have to say that the transportation was great and felt very safe. Best, Austin & Gabriela
