Fish the first day  We maximize your fishing time from the moment you land at the island, including fishing the same day of arrival. Also, your trips can be customized in duration and mode of transportation.

Cedros OUTDOOR Adventures U.S. Inc. is a U.S. corporation that puts together packages for fishing, eco-tours and special events. We work with  local vendors to ensure the highest service standards for the ease and enjoyment of your trip to Cedros Island.

Our mission: To serve our clients and to enjoy and protect the natural resources of Cedros, so that locals and tourists alike can enjoy fishing and other outdoor activities for generations to come. This personal commitment is what sets us apart as an outdoor adventure company.

We are committed to providing jobs for locals whenever possible to help promote a diversified economy based on sustainable activities such as fishing and ecotours.

Our guests benefit from the opportunity to visit an exotic destination and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including fishing, snorkeling, photography, hiking, fishing, mountain biking and animal and bird watching. Unlike your typical resort or tourist destination, the visitors to Cedros and San Benitos also have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to protect the islands for future inhabitants and guests.
