What to Expect


We are located on the Cabo Marina at Marina Cabo Plaza, in front of our boats on the A dock.

If you are taking a taxi, you can tell them to drop you off past the Marina Fiesta Hotel, there is a drop off and an entrance onto the Marina walkway. Turn the corner right after Dock A and you will see our shop lit up with a Redrum sign out front.

If you are driving a car, the easiest place to park is the Puerto Paraiso shopping mall. For about $2.00 – $3.00 you can park there all day.

We ask that you come to the office between 6:15-6:30AM, our office opens at 6:00AM. At that time we’ll take care of your balance, get you your fishing licenses and introduce you to the crew. Your boat will be ready to go at 6:30AM.

Half Day

A Half Day charter is 5 hours.

The charter leaves at 6:30 am and returns at 11:30 am

Full Day

A Full day charter is 8 hours.

The Charter leaves at 6:30 am and returns at 2:30 pm

We do offer extended day trips

Mexican law requires a valid Mexican fishing license for every person on the boat.

We provide fishing licenses in our office, daily Licenses are $25 per person, weekly licenses are $40 per person, $55 monthly and yearly $80.

If you want your licenses ready before you show up to the office, send us an email with the full names of all anglers to info@redrumcabo.com and we’ll take care of it.

Kids 12 and under do not need licenses.

Bait is included with every charter.

Every boat is equipped with custom rods and high quality reels.

Half-days include water and snacks.

Full-days include water, lunch and snacks.

Beer and Soda are not included. Beer and Soda are available for purchase at our office. You can also bring your own beverages (Glass is not permitted).

Bring comfortable shoes and clothing, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses and a good attitude!

Your balance can be paid with cash (USD/MX) or debit card and credit card(Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover) on the morning of your charter. Credit cards are processed in MX pesos at the current bank exchange rate. 

Mexican fishing licenses must be paid for in cash.

If you need to make a cancellation, well, that’s a bummer. Please send an email to info@redrumcabo.com and we’ll get it taken care of.

100% refund of your deposit if we are notified of cancellation 14 days or more before your scheduled charter date(s).

50% refund of your deposit if we are notified of cancellation 8-13 days before your scheduled charter date(s).

0% refund of your deposit if we are notified of cancellation 7 days or less before your scheduled charter date(s), or if we are not notified at all.

All tournament deposits are non-refundable and will be charged in full.

If you caught some fish and you would like to bring it with you, no problemo!

The boat crew will take it (and you) to the Marina Fillet Station. The cost is between $3-$5 USD a fish. You can take the fish with you and bring it to the restaurant of your choice or cook it up yourself.

If you want to bring the fish back to the States, you bring the fish back to our office and we vacuum seal and freeze it at no additional cost. To bring the fish on the airplane, it has to be fully frozen and in an airline approved box or a cooler. Airline approved boxes are available for purchase at our office.

A good starting point for a Fishing Charter is 10%, however in many cases, with multiple fish caught, the average effort is higher and deserving of more.

There is always something to catch here in Cabo, it just depends on what you’re looking for.

Take a look at our Fishing Calendar below to see what is in season throughout the year.

We do not have a program to match anglers that are looking to share a boat. If you would like to find someone to split the cost, our recommendation would be to ask around where you are staying.

Yes, we recommend booking a half day. You will depart when you get here, usually around 8:30 am. You will be back at the marina at around 1:30 pm. You can come back earlier depending on the time you have to be back.

If you would like to talk to a member of Team RedRum, we would be happy to answer any questions you have. You can reach us from the US at 760-481-7667 or while in Cabo San Lucas at our local number 624-172-0085. You can also send us an email to info@redrumcabo.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
