The Sea of Cortez is a Spearo's Dream
East Cape Guides™ now offers guided spearfishing trips. We have teamed up with Van Wormer Resorts. The Sea of Cortez is known for it's world renown spearfishing. A spearo's dream, the East Cape provides great weather, water temps in the 80s and a rarely equaled variety of fish species. Our destinations include Punta Pescadero, El Cardonal, Punta Perico, Bahía de los Sueños, Isla Cerralvo and other secret spots along the East Cape. We are targeting what opportunities the sea provides for us. Target fish include all pargo (snapper) species, cabrilla (lepard grouper), parrotfish, jacks and some pelagics like dorado and wahoo. We do not target billfish and roosterfish.
