We recommend staying at The Sea Harbor Hotel. They offer a discounted rate for fishing anglers and family.

WHAT CAN I DO IF I PLAN TO ARRIVE EARLY?

There is many restaurants near the landing to eat at. You can check in with the landing. If crew in on deck you can store your gear in the port corner of the boat. Please do not board the Constitution without talking to the crew first. No early boarding and getting bunks its a first come first serve process when the crew is ready to board everyone.

DO I NEED TO BRING BEDDING?

Yes everyone needs to bring bedding onboard a pillow and a sleeping bag works best.

FISH PROCESSING

The boat fillets fish onboard  for a fee. most fish are $8-$12 ea. for average size fish. Larger fish are cut for about .50 cents a pound

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK?

If you're from out of the area I would suggest a 2.5-3.5 day trip. Gets the most opportunity for your trip. Trips depart at 7pm and fish sun up to sun down for 2-3 days and you return in the Morning to get your fish processed or beat the traffic home. The 2 day trips seem to be the best

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

Pack warm clothes and a pair of short or tall rubber boots.

Your personal medicines and any comfort snacks you wish. If you have any dietary needs please let use know before the trip departures and if its minor please let the chef know and he will be happy to adjust the meal plan for you.

WHAT AIRLINE CAN I FLY TO LORETO?

We based our schedule on Alaska Airlines departing from LAX.

We have anglers that fly out of Tijuana and fly with Volaris and have great success. We use them frequently and have found they have great rates. You may have to fly in a day before and get a hotel or may get lucky and land similar to the rest of the group

WHERE DO WE GO WHEN WE LAND IN LORETO?

Since anglers may be Landing at different times. We decided not to include the transfer to the hotel in the ticket price. Take a cab or shuttle to La Mision Hotel.

Its a short drive. Check into the hotel, give your name and say your with the Constitution and your reservation will be there and paid for.

they may ask for a credit card for extras at the hotel like bar, or evening food. The hotel has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We suggest getting up early enough and have breakfast and be 15 minutes early

CAN I TAKE FISH HOME?

Yes, We process fish and  vacuum seal them for you. Most anglers buy soft coolers from AO coolers and get the 36 can bags. If you contact Nicole at the office she can order it and have it onboard with your name on it when you board in Mag Bay

IS DINNER GOING TO BE SERVED THE NIGHT OF THE DEPARTURE?

Yes, We will have a fine dinner served

ARE MEALS INCLUDED?

Yes, meals, snacks, beer, soda, and bottled water

We fish the coast of Mag Bay for Yellowtail, cabrilla and other bottom species. We fish daily from sun up to sun down and get everyone up early for the tuna bite, Time will be announced

nightly. If your trip departs later in the pm we will be on the same schedule minus the first days fishing. We will instead have dinner in the bay and depending on our stock may make bait right after dinner and depart for the grounds immediately after. We will announce what our plan is daily and you will be well informed. 

CAN WE FISH AT NIGHT?

Yes, we have crew awake, but we will announce the best time for everyone to be awake for the bite

Charter is always best, If you have a group that would like to take the entire boat. If not we conveniently have open trip with like minded anglers that enjoy fishing like you do.
