Local Captains & Experienced Fishermen
El Regalo is owned and operated by Matthew Clifton and Arturo Silva. An East Cape native from Los Barriles, Captain Arturo is bilingual, and a 4th generation fisherman with experience ranging from casting off shore to piloting the large yachts of Cabo. His love for the region runs deep and is only matched by his experience and knowledge of when, where, and how to fish these waters.
Matthew Clifton is an attorney turned fly fishing guide and charter operator. Soon after entering the practice, he decided that he wanted to follow his dream of fishing for a living. After several years of operating a fly fishing lodge (www.octagoninn.com) and guide service on the San Juan River in New Mexico, Matthew fell in love with Los Cabos and its productive fishing waters. Should you desire a fly fishing guide for your trip, Matthew would be available for a additional guide fee of $150, which would include all fly gear.
Working together, Matthew, Arturo and first mate Jorge will ensure that your charter is one of the finest in all of Baja. All crew is bilingual in English and Spanish.
