We booked a five hour fishing trip with El Budster and were treated like royalty. The captain and deck hand were amazing. We caught one Marlin that was 8 feet long and 105lbs. We hooked up in less than 20 minutes and we were spent after reeling in the Marlin. We decided that one fish was enough for us and called it good after about an hour and half. I will book with them every time I’m in Cabo.

I fished twice on all day trips with Captain Luis and mate Ismail in a week. They were great, both times. They make you feel welcome and make sure you are comfortable. They are about fishing and the customer experience.

On the first trip, marlin fishing was tough since the water temperature changed a lot from the day before, but they made sure we all caught a shark. Much more fight than I expected. I also caught a dorado on the way home.

I could see their skill and passion for fishing so I went with them again a few days later and was rewarded. We saw marlin within an hour of the trip starting. We saw a lot of marlin all day and hooked a couple, but none were landed until about 1:30. Most captains would have called it a day but not Luis. He found another marlin 5 minutes after I landed my first and we hooked up a 2nd. I landed 2 marlin within an hour. Awesome.

Perhaps the best captain and mate in Cabo.

I am a customer for life. I highly recommend.

After a 15 year hiatus I finally got back out fishing in the Los Cabos area, and this trip with Salvador's El Budster was far superior to my first experience with a different charter. With beautiful seas and seeing abundant wildlife, my wife and I enjoyed nearly a full fishing day on the boat. I warmed up catching 7 Skipjack Tuna, 1 nice sized Dorado, and my prize catch of the day was a Stripped Marlin which was released to live another day. Captain Omar and Deck Hand Luis worked their tales off for me and were very professional and knowledgeable. Language can be a barrier if you don't speak Spanish, and conversing with the crew makes the experience much more fun and enjoyable. That said, Luis was well versed in English and was great in answering questions, providing good instructional guidance, and he was simply a fun guy to speak with and be around throughout the trip. I highly recommend this charter service!

We went out for a full day fishing with El Budster to try to catch Marlin. The driver and guide were both very friendly and seemed very knowledgeable about the area and how to catch fish. Unfortunately, it was a slow day but we caught a huge marlin right at the end which was about 7ft long and weighed about 150 lbs! Despite the slow day, we felt the two guides did everything they could to get us into fish and would go out with them again! We saw lots of humpback whales and it was a beautiful day on the water with a prize fish at the end!

This review is for folks that don’t have a ton of experience fishing and are wondering if it’s too intense. It is, but in the best way! My wife and I took my Father on his first sea fishing experience and had an awesome time! It was quiet for the first 3-4 hours, but Ismael, our guide assured us we just had a wait a little longer. In the meantime we saw countless whales, even Marlin jumping and got to see the lovers arch at sunrise and enjoy the views of Cabo from the sea. We saw many boats around us reeling in Marlin and it was finally our turn! We snagged a 140lbs marlin and my father was able to reel in a Dorado immediately after!! It was so incredible and Ismael really did the leg work to help us bring them in, so that’s not a problem! On our way back into shore we met a hungry seal and some pelicans, which was just a cherry on top! Once we got back to shore we were able to get our fish processed for a tip and took 2 kilos of our marlin and the whole dorado was probably about 3 kilos. We took it back to our hotel, Pueblo Bonito and they cooked it up for us with a two hour notice! Sashimi for the marlin and a flavorful char for the dorado. Thank you so much to our captain and crew of El Budster Pride! We had an incredible experience and will never forget it!

Spent the day with Captain Luis and First Mate Juan fishing on the El Buster Pride. Best crew best day ever!!!! We caught 2 striped marlin ( we released one), 2 wahoo, and a dorado. One dorado, a skipjack and an unknown fish got away! Luis and Juan could not have been more accommodating and worked harder to make our fishing trip a memory of a lifetime!!!

We have fished with Salvador's Sport Fishing for a number of years now and once again it was a pleasure and great experience.
Louis and Ismael are who we like to fish with on El Budster Pride, and they always have a great fun loving attitude and their experience always puts fish in the box. Can't go wrong with these guys. If you don't have a good day then you probably won't have a good day anywhere else.
