Species of Fish

There is no shortage of big-game fish in the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. Cabo is home to marlin, tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, snapper, roosterfish, dorado, and more.

Lots of these fish come in monster sizes, so Cabo frequently sets and breaks world records. A giant marlin was caught 2011 after a 28-hour long battle with anglers. 2012 saw a record-breaking tuna weighing in at about 420 pounds.


Cabo is home to some of the largest fishing tournaments in the world. Tournament season begins in late June and runs into November.
