Most sport fishing from La Paz takes place either in La Paz Bay or in
the Gulf of California off Punta Arenas. Transportation from/to the
hotels and RV parks can be provided. For fishing from the Las Arenas
area, van service is provided - about a 45 minute ride. Other areas may
be fished, but the access is more difficult and time-consuming.
Check the main hotels for a fishing fleet desk. They can make
arrangements for a "panga" (smallest boat) or a larger day boat (24 to
32 feet in length) complete with skipper and/or helper. Some of the
major operators are:
"Dorado Velez Fleet" - Desk at the Los Arcos Hotel
Phone number: (La Paz) 2-27-44, Ext. 608
"Mosquito Fishing Fleet" - Desk at the Howard Johnson's Hotel (formerly the La Concha)
Phone numbers: (La Paz) 2-65-44
(U.S.) (310) 479-0234

Vans depart in the morning for Punta Arenas. Package
arrangements are available (meals, lodging and travel) - the
hotel accomodations are made with the Los Arcos Hotel. Some
travel agents in Southern California can book with this group.
