WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK?

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 Poseidon 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 to have breakfast and be 15 minutes early for pick-up.

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.

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

Yes, We will have a fine dinner prepared and served by Chef Antonio.

Please let us know if you have any allergies are dietary restrictions at time of booking.
