Cabo Magic was fantastic. Me and my lady had such a great time fishing with you guys. Jose and Emilio were absolutely great. As soon as we got out in the blue water we were on a fish. Landed a solid Striped Marlin. Not sure how big as we made a quick release off the back of the boat. My lady was not feeling well so we had to cut it short. Trolled back in and called it a day. Two days later we went out with Justo for some Roosterfish. As soon as we got lines in the water we had a strike. Missed fish. Went to the Pacific and hung out looking for fish. After 20 minutes, FISH ON. As I was reeling mine in, Jen hooked a bigger fish. We battled them for a few minutes around the boat and then safely released both fish. Missed two more rooster at the end of the day but still had a blast. Thank you Lori and Cabo Magic for making my 29th birthday a great one. We finished both days at the swim up bar! J

When was CABO MAGIC ® established?

Tommy & Lori Garcia's CABO MAGIC ® Sportfishing was established in 1999 and has been under this leadership and ownership since then offering Cabo San Lucas Fishing Charters

We trademarked the name in 2005.

Tommy Garcia is called "El Milagro" by many locals.
"El Milagro" means "The Miracle" - Tommy showed them, thru his leadership, how to blend and unite their unique culture with American Standards.

His father, Tomas, was a pro soccer player for Team CHIVAS of Los Mochis, Sinaloa. Tomas came to the US in the 1940's on a work visa.

Tommy and life-long friend Len Aaron - Aaron Brothers Art Marts founder - share their passion for sportfishing and began visiting in the mid 1970's.

How do I charter a boat with you?

We are delighted to work together with you to make your arrangements. We ask several questions to ensure arrangements are appropriate to you/your group or party.

Call us on our Vonage line 1-619-819-8634 or our Tollfree 1-888-475-5337.

On our website: Click on the photo of any boat - the page will open to show more information specific to that vessel.

OR if you prefer, you can complete our online Charter Request. We proudly set new standards for website business practices with this product in 1999. We will contact you promptly to discuss your request on your CABO FISHING CHARTER

More info

From time to time, we add cruisers, sportfishers and yachts to our offering, for you to choose that which is appropriate to your taste and budget.

Crews have proven results!

Arranging more than 15,000 charters since 1999 has allowed us to assess what works. We listen and respond to direct feedback from our VIP Guests.

Making Magic + Dreams Come True since 1999 offering Cabo Fishing Charters

What is required to confirm a reservation for boat charter?

A monetary deposit is required. Without deposit, a reservation is held in good faith for a short period of time. If no deposit is received & we do not have continued communications, we will release that boat and make it available for charter.

What do you accept for payment of charters? Do you accept credit cards? Do you accept travellers checks?

We accept Master Card, Visa, American Express and Discover card. There is a handling fee for processing.

We offer alternative methods for deposits that are "fee-free" ... details provided to confirm your reservations.

We do not accept travellers cheques under any circumstances due to the extensive delays to process them.

We do not accept credit cards for tournament charters.

Is there a best time for certain species of fish I am targeting?

Our ANNUAL FISH CHART indicates when a particular species is known to be in our region. Our waters are visited year round by most species. Each calendar year we are surprised by the catch of a species not known to be available at that particular time. The Athletes of The Ocean you are hunting do not exactly follow the monthly calendar and arrive and depart when they are moved to .. they are more inspired by moon phases, tides, water temperature changes and bait availability.

We accept Master Card, Visa, American Express and Discover card. There is a handling fee for processing.

We do not accept credit cards for tournament charters.

Other things for us to know?

Swimming on the Pacific side can be EXTREMELY dangerous due to currents, riptides and powerful waves. ROGUE WAVES are a regular occurance.

Many beaches on the Sea of Cortez side have undertows which are not visible from the beach, dangerous breakers, rip tides, or deep drop-offs close to shore. There MAY NOT be posted warning signs and if they are they will be in Spanish!

Our area was a fishing village first - golf added in the mid 1990's. Old-timers can tell stories about there being a roped-off area in front of the old Hacienda Beach Resort for swimmers - way before the jetskis, waverunners or parasail activities were introduced.

Please do not litter our beaches. Always take along a plastic trash bag for your trash. Help keep the beaches clean and beautiful.

There are NO LIFEGUARDS repeat NO LIFEGUARDS. Please be aware of this for youself and your childrens safety.

When walking on the beach please be aware that TURTLES lay their eggs in nests here. Please DO NOT ride ATV bikes on the beach as you will not know when you are disturbing nests and destroying eggs.

Regarding WHALE WATCH tours: PLEASE do not ask to see the whales - mamas or their calves - up close - be respectful. Feel free to call the office for additional information and/or explanation.

Refund and Cancellation policy?

If cancellation is received 30 days or more prior to boarding date full credit vouchers are issued. Vouchers are non-transferable and are valid for two years from date of issuance.

If this is not successful, all monies paid will apply as full credit towards a future trip. Credit vouchers will be valid for two years from date of issuance.

In the event the port captain or port authorities closes the port due to inclement weather, after marina departure, a proportionate pro rata amount of monies paid will apply as credit towards a future trip. Credit voucher will be valid for two years from date of issuance.

About our charters, boats and crews

The charters we arrange are boat specific. We do not double book boats - this was one of the first standard principles of business established - by us - in 1999.

All crews are properly documented, licensed, and insured for charter. All carry US Coast Guard level safety equipment. Boats are inspected annually by the Port Captains Office. Owners provide proof of insurance to the Port Captains Office to maintain their charter license/permit. ("matricula")

Owners of vessels are responsible for all operating costs associated with the charters we arrange.

To confidently place Guests aboard - as we have done since 1999 - vessel owners and crews are in alignment with our business practices and philosophies. "We treat everyone with dignity and respect"

All of us look forward to welcoming you aboard.

What can we expect from your crews?

First and foremost, our crews are concerned with the safety of our VIP guests. 

Next they want to entertain you and 'get you on the fish'. To succeed, a combination of effort, skill, timing and luck work together.

It is very important to keep your wits about you while aboard any vessel. Sea conditions can go from 'smooth' to 'choppy' or even a rogue swell can appear seemingly out of nowhere.

It is helpful to watch what the crew is doing. They'll be working to find the fish. They are watching signs of action such as birds, surface bubbles, bait fish, jumping fish, fins & tails.

Their eyes are trained & skilled in watching for the slightest sign of fish action. They will troll lures to catch the attention of fish. Sometimes the fish you are hunting will hit a trolled lure and sometimes the crew will pitch live bait to entice them.

Our captains & mates can speak and understand English in various levels. Several take great pride in their ability to do so. ALL crews do their best to understand what you say to them. Some are more comfortable speaking their native language amongst themselves.

Just as you might appreciate their effort to speak english to you, they do appreciate any effort made to speak Spanish.

All of our crews speak fantastic Fish English!

Our crews do what is necessary to maintain the boat & keep equipment functioning and operationing properly.

Cabo Fishing Charters

What live bait do you use?

Local variety of bait fish. Makarela about 7 to 10 inches long. Sometimes chuhuilla or caballitos. Sardines as available.

What techniques do your crews use to catch fish?

Big game sportfishing is a hunt!

The captain will use the highest point on his vessel to watch for signs of action. Some boats have a bridge while others have a full tuna tower that puts the highest level 30' above the water level. Think of 'crows nest' for a 'birds eye view".

Some species of birds are often an indicator of fish below the surface. Especially the bird called frigate whose height above the water can be indicative of where a fish may be below the surface.

Bait fish jumping can be a sign that what you seek might be near.

Mostly, we use a method called trolling - pulling lures/artificials at varying rates of speed to entice fish interest. Live bait is pitched to entice a 'finning' marlin, or when you encounter a 'boiling' school of fish. Also, sometimes a hooked dorado is left in the water to catch the mate .. Lots of magic techniques utilized by our crews!

We encourage active participation by all guests aboard. Watch the water for signs such as birds, jumping fish, dorsal fins - these are important to point out to the crew.

Good teamwork usually leads to good results!

Do I have to bring tackle? Can I?

All of our vessels are outfitted with tackle required to fish our waters. Some guests enjoy using a personal setup. You absolutely may bring your own if you wish!

How many crew members will be on the boat with us?

You will have a Captain and First Mate/Deckhand. From time to time a deckhand-in-training can also be aboard.

Luxury Yachts have a 4 person crew team - including the culinary skills of an onboard chef.

Do you arrange boat sharing?

When asked, we assist in arranging a share. Please contact the office for additional information or view our SHARE BOARD on our Pangas + Cruisers page.

What happens to the fish we catch after your Cabo Fishing Charter?

Billfish - MARLIN & SAILFISH are usually released "CR&R" stands for CATCH REVIVE RELEASE and has been on our fish reports since 1999. . Crew are skilled in process of release. If REVIVAL is required first mate will hold fish in water alongside boat by “bill” while captain moves boat at slow rate of speed forcing oxygen into the fish.

EDIBLE FISH such as Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Shark etc. can be eaten and enjoyed. Rules set forth by governing authorities are followed by all crews of Team CABO MAGIC Sportfishing.

We remind you this is Mexico & thus urge patience & understanding as sometimes rules & their enforcement change. Be assured our crews do what is required by governing agencies.

We respectfully remind you our crews are working for you & not recreationally fishing for themselves. A gratuitous donation of fresh fish is sincerely appreciated & shared with others.

Bringing fish home to the USA is generally accepted w/the following guidelines: Your ice chest or cooler must be hard sided - it cannot be styrofoam. We respectfully suggest you check with your airlines for up to date information concerning fees, restrictions and any other pertinent information.

Bring duct tape. Do not seal your icechest until it has been viewed at the airport by airline officials. A “reasonable” amount of fish is permitted by Mexican Officials. Ice and/or frozen water bottles, are not permitted, and are subject to removal by airport officials.

Its always a good idea to check with your airlines for any specific size restrictions or conditions concerning bringing fish back.

What happens to billfish?

We encourage the release of billfish during Non-Tournament fishing. Billfish species include Striped Marlin, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Pacific Sailfish. The technique involved to release these pelagics is to revive them before release. Our crews are skilled in this technique. Observe what the crew does!


We encourage and support responsible practices.

We have been proud supporters of TBF - The Billfish Foundation ( and the IGFA - International Game Fish Association ( since 1999.

Join us in support of GUY HARVEY in the Art of Ocean Conservation. Contact Capt Dave Lear for additional information and assistance.
