Acuario Oceanico

Acuario Oceánico is a Mexican company in Ensenada, Baja California, born from the passion for aquaculture and Bluefin tuna. They offer you an unprecedented ecotourism learning experience focused on a series of activities, techniques, and knowledge on raising aquatic plants and animal species.

This is for anyone that enjoys new adventures and has an affinity for the ocean and its species.

Their goal is to promote research related to breeding and feeding Bluefin tuna and other marine species, which is why Acuario Oceanico partnered with one of the most important scientific research centers in Ensenada, CICESE, and other educational institutions.

Tuna has been a flagship species of Ensenada for decades, thanks to the commercialization of this species, thousands of jobs have been created and this has generated a significant economic benefit to the region. Ensenada currently has the world’s largest Bluefin tuna farm, which exports mainly to Japan, USA, Korea and China. ​

Acuario Oceanico is open Friday thru Sunday, 8:30am to 12:30pm.

Cedros Adventures

Cedros Adventures was the 1st fishing resort established on Cedros Island. Founded by two pilots (tuna spotting pilots) Adrian Ojeda and Tom Greene, their vision of creating an American-styled resort on Mexican soil became a reality. Attention to detail has always been at the forefront of the develioment of the Cedros Adventures resort.

 

Adrian and Tom know that while nobody can guarantee fishing, they could guarantee unsurpassed accommodations and service to the guests while residing on the island. It is this commitment that places Cedro Adventures above all others, rivaling other resorts around the world.

 

Cedros Adventures provides 4 boats: 3 pangas, which have been modified as center-consoled, flat platforms to enhance the fishing experience, and a 25-foot Mako Center Console. Professional captains with a vast knowledge of the local fishery guide all 4 of their boats. Captains participated in the annual "Torneo de Pesca Cedros" in 2013 and won 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place in the Yellowtail tournament!

 

Cedros Adventures trips are all-inclusive (except gratuities & alcohol), which means that the only thing you need to worry about is getting your gear ready and bringing a healthy appetite to the island.
