Before the completion of the Transpeninsular Highway, Loreto’s earliest visitors in the 1950s and 1960s came by private plane to fish the abundant waters of the Sea of Cortez. These days, a broader set of tourists finds their way to town, but fishing is still a major draw, and some of the original lodges remain in business. A number of places offer charter services on boats that range from simple pangas to cruisers. In summer, mahi-mahi/dorado is the most prized catch. You might also land a roosterfish, yellowtail, or billfish.
