Pacific Adventures

Bluewater Fishing, Shore Fishing and Diving

The 200 miles of beautiful and isolated coast between Los Cabos and Bahia Magdalena offer rich seamounts and marine Banks for the Pacific sports and game fisherman, but without a single launching site offering beach power, water, secure parking and accommodations!

The Rancho la Aguja marine facilities are now open to sports fishermen for beach launching, retrieval, washdowns and secure storage for their marine equipment. The adjacent Playas Pacificas development offers an ideal home-base for marine activities, from kite surfing to down-rigging for marlin - together with preferred resident rates.

  • Secure storage/launch assistance

  • Four major marine banks within comfortable reach for angling and diving

  • Miles of open, deserted beaches to explore

    Deep Sea Fishing

    Fishing varies from fair to excellent, depending on the season, with some of the most productive offshore grounds on the Pacific side of Baja found here: world-renowned tuna grounds at the Morgan, Potato and Finger Banks, old mossyback cows out at the Lusitania Banks. Closer to shore there are good numbers of tuna, wahoo, dorado, yellowtail, groupers and snappers.
