    Thanks for the referral Loni - I plan to check them out. They even have a boat for 10, whereas in a lot of my research max capacity is 4-6.

        Hi everyone - thanks to Loni's recommendation, I checked out Baja Raiders and booked them for our fishing trip during our wedding week. They responded to my email immediately and later followed up with a call to confirm reservation. Judy sounded american and was super nice. They required a credit card to hold the reservation but do not charge a deposit unless you are a no show. They also sent a confirming email right after we spoke. I thought their prices were reasonable as compared to others. This is their website: Cabo Boats - Cabo San Lucas Sport Fishing Charters Thanks again for the recommendation Loni!!

          My dad, fiance, and I chartered a boat with Picante Bluewater Sportfishing. Link to their website: Picante Bluewater Sportfishing

          My Dad paid about $1,000 for 6 AM - 1 PM. That included boat, gas, bait, and beer. We caught three stripers, mine was the larget at 170 lbs! :)

          I highly recommend them, the deck hands and captain were very knowledgeable, funny, and put us on the fish!

          We are going back in August to do site visits (I have not picked one yet for my wedding!) and to fish with Picante again! :)

            Hi everyone - just wanted to report back on my experience with Baja Raiders. Everything went smoothly (except for the waves). We booked their 10 person boat the Muchacho Alegre for 8 hours. As I stated before Judy was great - responded quickly to any email and provided a detailed confrimation email. Cost was $950 for the boat and then you could add (which we did) $30 pp for license, lunch, beer, soft drinks and bait (the all-inclusive package I suppose). The owner of Baja Raiders met us at the dock, walked us to the boat and got us our licenses. The crew was very nice and all business - we immediately went looking for marlin and caught a 175 striped marlin after only 2 hours. Unfortunately we had a couple guests get seasick (all those who took dramamine were fine but my sister who is prego couldn't take it) so we cut the trip early. We thought the Muchacho Alegre was a great fishing boat - ample cabin space inside for all of us to sit in there while it was cold early in the morning and space for about 6 people up top to sit where the captain is. The captain was a pro at reversing engines to help bring in the marlin too - that was super fun! This was one of the few boats I found for a reasonable price for capacity for more than 6-8 people. I would definitely use Baja Raiders and the Muchacho Alegre again.

              I know that Charter Los Cabos has many different options for Fishing, I have a friend who always uses their services. She has a TimeShare at Villa del Arco, and they have 3 years going there.

                Thank you so much for this information. Baja Raiders sounds like a great outfit and we will definitely be looking into chartering a trip with them. Bringing in a marlin would be a dream come true for the guys.

Maybe a little expensive but he said those guys were all business and didn't piss around. Between the 2 boats they caught 4 marlin, and 4 dorado.
                    We went on our own another time and were supposed to get a 33 foot boat, and they stuck us with a 28 foot boat. Cost was $250 for the two of us. Then the captain only wanted to fish for mackeral so we were along the beach the whole time. My husband convinced him to go deeper so we could get some big fish, and then they just sat on the top of the boat and did nothing. The lines were tangled for like 10 minutes, and they weren't even watching them. My husband was not impressed at all, and it was a waste of a day. We got hooked up through Picante at the marina. It sucked. Sometimes a bargain in Mexico isn't the best plan!

                    Thanks for the info Loni, we are also looking for a fishing charter $1100 is a good price for 2 boats.
