Loreto is a top-notch destination for sport fishing, offering a full range of charter fishing boats, hotels, fine dining options, an international airport, and high-quality tourist services. The Gulf of California is home to an incredible diversity and abundance of fish, with around 900 species and a substantial and consistent population of game fish.
Whether you’re a passionate angler or just want to try your luck with a fishing rod for a day while on vacation, you’ll enjoy the excitement of fishing in traditional “pangas” for a variety of fish, including dorado (Mahi-mahi or Dolphin fish), cabrilla (sea bass and grouper), amberjack, wahoo, sierra mackerel, toro (Jack Crevalle), cochito (triggerfish), or any other fish that your hook may catch.
You can have your catch prepared by local restaurants and invite your friends to a great meal while boasting about your fantastic stories of how you caught that “big one.”
Loreto’s location between the warmer waters of the southern Gulf of California and the cooler waters of the Midriff Area to the north provides two distinct fishing seasons for two highly sought-after game fish: dorado in the summer and yellowtail in the winter.
