Sport fishing activities in Baja are always welcome, but required documents and permits by the Mexican Government are a must. Avoid inconveniences and sanctions.
The Embassy reminds that in order to facilitate the procedures to obtain the different permits related to these activities, on May 2015, the Mexican Government launched a website that contains the necessary electronic links and information, both in English and Spanish.
This Mexican multiagency effort has allowed most foreign nautical tourists to comply with the Mexican legal requirements in an accessible and easy way.
Despite such effort, there are still some boats that have been spotted in Mexican waters without abiding by the corresponding rules.
It is important to acknowledge that lack of compliance of Mexican rules results in different sanctions, such as detention and immediate deportation of crew and passengers, as well as in confiscation of vessels. Mexican Navy and Immigration authorities are strengthening their presence in Baja waters.
