Pancho the Infamous Sea Lion from Cabo


A colony of sea lions lives near a the Arch of Cabo, at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. The sea lions catch rides into the marina, swimming out to the fishing vessels for fish as they return from their trips.

If you’ve been to Cabo and you’ve been out on a boat returning into the Marina, you’ve seen this little guy. However, he’s not so little. Funny Sea Lion nicknamed Pancho eats the leftover fish like it’s nothing. Only if they’re alive though, Pancho is a picky eater. Only in Mexico baby!

Those fishing yachts that are coming back with leftover bait are his favorites boats to follow.

For an opportunity to se Pancho live, check out our Fishing Activities below.
