Check our suggested tackle list to be prepared for your fishing trip. Check the fish reports before your trip to keep track of the size and type of fish being caught. Contact us if you need advice on gear before your trip. Each trip will start with a tackle and fishing seminar. Our tackle shop, Fishermans Landing Tackle, will be open upon departure for purchases and advice from experts. Searcher carries a full supply of terminal tackle for purchase during your trip.
Canned/bottled beverages (sodas and bottled water are $1 and beers are $2). We are proudly serving a San Diego craft beer, made by Ballast Point, for $4 per can.
FMM, a document which allows fishing within certain areas of Mexico. For this, $30-35 will be collected at the dock if deemed necessary.

Should a California fishing license be required (determined upon departure), this can be purchased at the tackle shop, as they are not included in the trip price. If you have an annual California license, bring it with you.
A fuel surcharge may be imposed if the cost of fuel has risen unpredictably.
It is customary to tip the crew for their service. 10-15% of the trip fare is considered a good tip. Present your gratuity to the operator or any crew member at the end of the trip.
If you cancel and we rebook your vacancy, or if we receive your cancellation more than 120 days before departure, your deposit is refundable minus 10% of the trip price. Otherwise funds on deposit are non-refundable. No refunds after departure.
The booking deposit is non-refundable if passport requirements aren’t met to the satisfaction of Mexican immigration guidelines. Check your passport expiration date before you make your deposit.
We recommend trip insurance to protect your vacation investment in case you need to cancel.
If you purchase trip insurance and experience an unexpected cancellation for your trip, no refunds are issued from Searcher if an insurance claim is approved.
