Sport fishing activities in Baja are always welcome, but required documents and permits from the Mexican Government are a must. Avoid inconveniences and sanctions.

The Embassy of Mexico in Canada reminds the public that in order to facilitate the procedures to obtain the various permits related to these activities, the Mexican Government launched a website in May 2015 that contains the necessary electronic links and information, in both English and Spanish.

This Mexican multiagency effort has enabled most foreign nautical tourists to comply with the Mexican legal requirements in an accessible and easy way.
Despite such efforts, there are still boats being spotted in Mexican waters that are in violation of the corresponding rules.

Lack of compliance with Mexico’s rules may result in a variety of sanctions, including 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.
