I chose to go to Cabo San Lucas this winter primarily to see whales. However, fishing is my first hobby, and following a run of bad luck over the past 2 years of trying to get in on good saltwater fishing (mostly due to the weather), including two trips being cancelled while we were on th ewater, I was considering (in sheer frustration) hanging my rod up. At least as far as saltwater went.

However, reading about Land's End charters and Carlos "Sharluko" Peralta in particular (I call him Charlie) made me think that I should give it another hurrah.

I was glad that I did. What I like most about Carlos and his cousin, as well as Land's End, is that unlike all too many other operations I head read about, you are not sitting down and trolling all day long. Believe me I have trolled all day long elsewhere. I don't know about you, but it is NOT my favorite method of fishing.

We DID try for big game at first (chunking for tuna; not trolling), but with the weather snotty and the fish there not particularly cooperative we headed "inside" (keeping in mind that the water "inside" is 200 feet deep) to do the type of fishing I love best: bottom fishing. Bingo. Before long, we were catching fish left and right and within three hours (Carlos gave me all the extra time I needed), had the following on bait and jigs:

13 pacific bonito
3 yellowtail kingfish
1 dorado
1 BEAUTIFUL orange snapper
1 big pacific porgy
7 finescale triggerfish.

Also privileged to see sea lions, frigate birds, and even a couple of whales. Plus some marlin at the surface that we tried for inside. They are there!

More importantly, Carlos is warm, personable, and a joy to be around. He also has great taste in music. Excellent customer service from Jenny from the moment I booked back in October (answering all my questions and concerns patiently, promptly, and kindly) and Hiram also makes Land's End a stellar operation.

Here is my advice if you want to have a good time fishing in Cabo San Lucas:

1) Keep an open mind to different species

2) Fish with Land's End Charters

3) Get on the Sea Boy NOW!

We went out for a 5 hour trip on the Big D. Our captain was Victor and the first mate was Marcos. Both of them were extremely courteous, professional and knowledgable. Making the reservations was really easy as was the payment. We were sent a couple of emails with what to expect and confirmation information. One of the emails also contains drink and food selections which you let them know ahead of time. We chose chicken burritos and 4 beers each and honestly, they were the most authentic burritos we had the whole trip! We also asked if fishing was good if it would be easy to stay out and pay the difference at the end and were told it wouldn't be a problem.

The boat was extremely clean and well maintained with a portable toilet on board. That being said, it is a portable toilet and needs to be cleaned out after each use which might bother some people. My husband and I were the only ones on the boat besides the crew that day.

As for the fishing, there is a reason it is called fishing not catching. We left between 6:30-7 AM, which was about the time all the other boats were headed out also. We caught 4 bonita right off the bat before heading out into some deeper water. The rest of the day was kind of slow but we did end up catching 2 smaller tuna also. Our slow day was not because of the lack of effort of the crew. They were constantly changing tackle, directions etc trying different things. Despite a slower day of fishing, we were able to see a ton of wildlife that included dolphins, turtles, sharks, and flying fish. Towards the end of the day, we had a Marlin trailing one of our lines but couldn't get it to bite. All Marlin are catch and release only!

Land's End provides you with the opportunity to clean and catch up to 30 lobs of fish if you wish to take them home and/or take them to a restaurant or your hotel to have them cooked fresh. We opted not to take any and gave them to the crew who were most grateful. Lastly, remember to tip your crew. They work really hard to make it an enjoyable day!

Did a full day (8 hours) of fishing on the boat “Crazy Bird” with captain Jose and mate Javier. Can not speak highly enough of these two as well as the entire Lands End group. From the moment we booked our charter they were in touch with us to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible when our day to fish arrived. Check in was swift and easy, they had our licenses ready and they made sure we were on the water as fast as possible. Every member of the Lands End team we dealt with was awesome and made sure our trip was top notch. When we got on the water we had our first Mahi Mahi within 5 minutes of the lines being in the water. Throughout the entire day it was obvious that both Jose and Javier were doing everything in their power to catch us fish. I fish quite often back home in Canada and believe that even the best fisherman have days where the fish aren’t biting. I would recommend you always tip based on the effort they are putting In and not just the results. We received top notch effort and happened to get top notch results. They were top notch fisherman and even better people! The entire day they made sure we were happy and comfortable and all we had to worry about was enjoying the scenery and reeling in the fish they put us on. We finished the day with 2 Mahi Mahi, 1 wahoo, and one very big striped marlin! It was a day we will never forget and that is a testament to the amazing people at Lands End. If you’re looking to do a day of fishing while in Cabo I can’t recommend anyone better than Lands End and Jose and Javier! Good luck and tight lines!

Whelp, Sorry to say for the price we were quite disappointed. We booked two excursions with Lands End and neither were worth the premium price.

Th first trip was a yacht trip on to 50 Happy Ending. The captain was nice and the first mate/cook did well with the food and hospitality. The crew was solid. However, they didn't know what we wanted to do so we fished for a while without adequate bate and gear, tried but caught 0. Then on to snorkeling where we were taken to a touristy swimming hole with overrun choral beds and few fish to see. The snorkling equipment was broken when he gave it to us (no top bobber) and there was a small kayak bit, that was it for the five of us. Considering the experience and advertised suite of toys / gear supposed to be there, we paid and tipped was way too much.

The second trip was a fishing trip booked on the Rhino del Mar but to our surprise at the last minute we were notified that the boat had broken down. They offered another same size boat for 200us more. SO, an ultimatume, we took the bait and went on Fearless for a 6 hr fishing trip. First the food, small breakfast burrito and lunch sandwich were just awful 😫. No service other than two guys dragging 5 lines pretty short and changed bait/leurs about every 3 hours, captain driving around t r Ying to find fish. So, easy job really. Caught 0. Though we did see some Marli fins, just hanging out in a small stationary group. We drug some lines around them but they must have been napping.
:/. Anyway, overcharged for the boat, charged for bait we didn't use, charged for free processing of fish, didn't catch a n y t h I n g. So, where is the incentive for the crew to catch fish when you can just chillax and not have to deal with baiting, customers catching and processing those darn fish! There are hungrier outfits out there especially for the price.

We just want to send a huge thank you to Lands End Charters ! Our captain Roberto and Christopher are absolutely fantastic! We have Been on many charters in the area from Cabo to los Barillas and Lands end is top notch!
I had so much fun , much more than I even imagined! Roberto and Christopher not only kept the boat 100% immaculate throughout the whole 8hr day. Myself being a female neat freak, that was very important to me. They also made us feel 100% safe , they are so knowledgeable and are complete pros at what they do, All of their equipment on top of it , rods, reels , you name it is 100% top of the line and in fantastic condition.
Anybody reading this that has been on other charters knows that you can get sold one idea and then arrive and find out that you have rusty hooks and run down equipment and it does make a big difference regarding the whole experience.
With that being said, the absolute highlight of the day was we caught a gorgeous marlin which we released. we are 100% in support of their policy of catch and release for billfish.
The marlin we caught was just so absolutely beautiful to hold and to see up close was enough and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was truly magical.
We are Avid travelers to Cabo so we will be definitely using Lands End charters again for all of our future endeavors. Thank you so much to Roberto and Christopher For creating such a special day for us!
We look forward to our next adventure!

If you want an experience that you will never forget book yourself “La Gringa” from Lands End Charters. This boat doesn’t have nearly as many reviews as it deserves.

I recently started my search to book a private charter for my family and I as a Christmas adventure experience rather than exchanging gifts with each other. Shortly into my search I realized the demand for deep sea fishing is huge in Cabo (with great reason, of course) but, we were looking more for a relaxing yet still celebratory vibe. After a few days into my research I landed on “La Gringa” and it seemed like the perfect fit. A 50 ft motored catamaran cruiser that seemed like nothing short of phenomenal.

They did not disappoint. From setting the cruise up with the amazingly accommodating, professional and very responsive Jenny to the moment we docked after sunset, it was a truly priceless experience that the seven of us were fortunate enough to be a part of.

From very informative whale information (we saw many whales throughout the day and got close enough to hear them singing), great food, drinks and service: Maya, she was always there when we needed something and was very personable.

Captain Mario went spear fishing and provided some beautiful fish for an amazing sashimi that was an unexpected surprise.

First mate Cala was there for anything from a cerveza to some salsa lessons.

Sara took some great pictures that we couldn’t turn down, they will be in frames for a long time to come.

Thank you everyone again! You made it an experience of a lifetime. ¡Mucho gusto, mis amigos!

Took a trip to Cabo with my son to do some offshore deep sea fishing. This was our first fishing trip to this part of the world. He worked with Lands End Fishing charters and we arranged for two days of fishing. One was focused on close in fishing for Yellow Tail, Rooster Fish, snapper and such. We had a great Captain Carlos on the Sea Boy, who provided us with excellent results with 8 fish caught including Dorado, yellow tail, grouper, trigger fish and Bonita. Our second trip was farther off shore looking for marlin and or sailfish. Unfortunately those were not biting that day but we did catch 6 Dorado so the day wasn't a bust. Highly recommend Lands End Charters. They cleaned, fileted and froze our fish for us.

We went out on La Duena in February 2021 with Captain Felipe. This was "whale watching" season so while the fishing this time of year is not the greatest, we saw beautiful humpback whales breaching the surface multiple times during our trip. Captain Felipe and our mate worked hard to get us some fish and we did catch a few tiger fish that we had prepared at one of the marina restaurants; so the overall experience with Lands End Charters was do good, we just booked another trip for October when we return to Cabo! Bring on the Don Julio!!!

I’ll start with the positive aspects of this charter company. Very professional and easy to work with. I felt that the price was very fair and the boat was clean and comfortable. We fished on ‘Showtime’ with Juan and Jesus. These guys were very friendly and accommodating and worked hard the entire full-day trip. It seems like most of these charter companies fish the same way by trolling and using a combination of artificial and live bait, so I’m not sure what makes one captain any better than another when it comes to catching fish. That said, we didn’t catch a single fish the entire trip. I fish offshore back home and realize that there will be days like this, but other boats that went out on the same day did catch some nice fish. If we would have caught a few fish my rating would have been a 5 instead of a 3. That is a lot of money to spend and not catch a single fish. I really wish these companies would post the fish they catch on every trip so you could make a better decision about who to book. I would consider fishing with them again but may look to book a different boat or book with a company that would offer a discount if you don’t catch. Not sure that exists but it would be a great way to book more trips.

Hola my friend - Thank you for the honest review, we understand how frustrating a day of bad fishing can be. Just to point out a few things for anyone reading this. While posting daily catch reports is something we do, it still is no guarantee that the fishing will be the same for any boat or captain on any given day. Some days are great, some days are lucky, some days are plain bad or unlucky - it's the nature of fishing. Much less to do with the boat, and more to do with conditions honestly. I will put it this way, you mentioned fishing offshore back home, I am sure you know your spots and what bait, lures etc to use. I am also sure you are successful at catching fish in the areas you know best. Now imagine you were paid to fish 300+ days a year, could you guarantee that every person you take out will catch fish and offer money back if they didn't? What we do offer are clean, safe, affordable boats with highly experienced and friendly crews. Our office staff work hard to make sure that there are no issues getting out and most importantly that we make the process as easy and straightforward as possible, as you so kindly pointed out in your review. Again, totally understand the frustration, and wish you could have had more success on the water. ***If you are considering a charter in Cabo, please know that fishing is still a sport and every day world class fishermen and boats come back empty handed (check any of the latest big fishing tournament results held here every year for proof). Read all reviews and consider the overall rating of the charter company to find the one that best fits what you're looking for.

We fished with captain Roberto and first mate Sergio on the Big Kahuna II. Would definitely recommend this boat. We found fish at first light the bites continued throughout the day. Landed Mahi Mahi and Bonito. Lost a marlin.
