FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who are we at Aby Charters?

We are a group of boat owners which means that we are the Captains of our own vessels. There are no unions and no syndicates. As dedicated fishermen, our goal is to bring the most flags when we come back to the port. We also assure you that we provide the best quality tackle, rod and reels because we take good care of our own fishing equipment.

The price is per boat or per person?

The price stated is per boat. The prices may vary depending if it’s half day or full day, size of the vessel, and the maximum capacity of anglers.

What is included in the price?

The price is inclusive of boat, diesel, all tackle needed, ice chest with ice (not for drinking), and smiling crew.

What is the cost for the fishing license?

You can get the fishing license directly from the Mexican Fish Game Department website but we can also provide it at $16.00 US per person (upon reservation, you can request a license for all anglers). Please take note that everybody on board (13 years old and up) are required to have a license.

Do I need to leave a deposit to reserve?

A 50% downpayment is required to secure the booking. You can pay online.  

All cancellations received more than 7 days prior to the trip date will get a full deposit refund.

Cancellations received 7 days or less prior to the trip date will not receive any refund. No refunds will be given to customers who do not show up on the day of the trip.

Weather cancellations are under the captain's discretion. If the charter company or the captain cancels the trip due to bad weather, mechanical problems, or whatever issue, the customer will get a full refund or reschedule if possible.

The charter does not refund seasickness issues. Should you decide to cut short the trip because of sea sickness, you will still be charged in full. If you are prone to motion sickness, we suggest you take a sea sick pill 1-hour to 30-min before the trip.

Do you provide transportation?

No, we do not provide transportation.

Can you accommodate large groups?

Yes, we can accommodate large groups because we have different sizes of boats in our dock, from 22’ baja pangas up to 56’ yachts.

Do you have English speaking captains?

Yes, all our Captains can communicate in basic English so communication will not be a problem.

Do the boats have a bathroom on board?

All of our boats have a nice clean toilet, except the NAJA PANGAS 22’.

Do we need to bring anything?

We provide quality fishing tackle on board but feel free to bring your own and we will help you set it up.

Will I get seasick?

This may depend on the condition of each individual since some may be more prone to seasickness than others (especially those with hangover).

What can we expect to catch?

We catch fish most of the year but there are different seasons for species like marlin, dorado, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and others. Please check our fishing calendar season to find out the different schedules.

Do you do trolling or bottom fishing?

Normally, we go star trolling for the fish on season but we can also do bottom fishing on request, depending on the calendar.

How much travel time to the fishing grounds is there?

Most of the time, we travel around 2 to 3 miles but on rare occasions, we can run 10 to 20 miles offshore.

What kind of bait do you use?

We use different kinds of bait such as Spanish mackerel, mollets, or big eye, which cost around $3.00 US each. We recommend 10 per trip.

What are the best fish to take to eat?

There’s nothing better than fresh fish - dorada, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, yellow tail, and different bottom fish.

ABY CHARTERS was formed in 1991 by a group of boat owners. From the beginning, ABY CHARTERS had a very unique concept; each of the members are captains, and each of them are the owners of their own ship.
