TheHotel Palmas de Cortez resort has the largest private sport fishing fleet in Mexico. Boats range from smaller pangas
which has one skipper and usually works well for two to three people. The cruisers and super cruisers have a skipper and a mate and accommodate four to six people depending on the size of the particular boat.
All the poles and gear are included, but you may bring your own if you wish. Lunches and cold drink orders are available when you make boat confirmations the night before your trip. The resort or the East Cape Smoke House will pick up the fish at the dock, clean and package it and have it ready for pick up the day of our guests
departure. Just ask your skipper to call ahead so they will be waiting when you return to the dock. The smoke house requires two days to complete the smoking process of your fish, but sometimes they can trade your fish with some others if they may have available. Ask them ahead of time if there is a time constraint.
Marlin and Yellow Fin Tuna are superb when smoked by The East Cape Smoke house.
