Frequently Asked Questions

Identification Requirements

A valid picture I.D. is required by the U.S. Coast Guard on all trips, for all passengers – including minors. Be sure to bring your driver’s license, school I.D. or other such documents. Valid documentation for a minor can be a school I.D. or birth certificate. Documents presented must not be expired.

Is A Passport or Mexican Visa Required?

While many of the trips departing daily from H&M Landing fish in Mexican waters, a passport is NOT REQUIRED unless we are fishing near the Mexican coast or near any of their offshore islands. During the summer months, most of our trips are scheduled to fish OFFSHORE (well outside of 12 miles) where a passport is NOT required.

If a trip is operating within 12 miles of the Mexican coast of any of their islands, a Mexican Tourist Visa (FMM) is required. Examples of the types of trips that require an FMM include Baja Long Range, ¾ Day Coronado Islands and Winter Coastal Rock fish. The H&M Landing booking website and/or H&M staff will notify you when you inquire about a reservation whether an FMM and Passport are required on the trip you have chosen. H&M Landing will issue the necessary FMM for trips on which they are required. The process for issuing an FMM requires that the applicant has a valid International or U.S. Passport Book or US Passport Card.

Personal documentation requirements have become standard for both domestic and international travel. While the vast majority of our trips do not require a Passport, H&M Landing recommends that for the most flexibility and whenever practical our customers obtain a valid U.S. Passport Card or Passport Book.

Where Can I Park?

Paid parking is available through three separate lots in the vicinity. There is one lot located on Scott Street with entrances directly in front of H&M Landing and further down Scott Street towards North Harbor Drive. There are two additional lots accessible via North Harbor Drive. All three lots are $12 per 24 hours and are pre-paid by license plate. There is additional paid parking, please read parking signs carefully for any rate and/or time limitations. DO NOT PARK IN THE POINT LOMA SEAFOODS PARKING LOT!

Tackle Rental

The Landing tackle store has all of the tackle you might need. Rental tackle is available for all type trips. Because the most effective terminal tackle changes through the season, please ask the landing sales associates advice at the time of departure. A security deposit is required for the use of rental tackle in the form of a major credit card or $100 cash which is returned upon return of the equipment.

Fish Processing

Most vessels in our fleet offer on-board processing of your catch. Should you prefer shoreside processing, reservations with one of the preferred processors is required to guarantee same day service. Please use one of the following links to secure your reservation prior to departure:

Five Star Fish Processing

Fisherman’s Processing

Sportsman’s Seafood

Clothing Suggestions

For any outing we recommend a hat and sunglasses as protection from the sun. Use a sunscreen rated at a minimum of 30 SPF – you can get sunburned even on a cloudy day. It can get cold on the water so bring something warm… a coat, sweater or sweatshirt, a windbreaker if you have one. Dress in layers so you can adjust to conditions. Wear non-slip shoes. Short rubber boots are great for fishing, tennis shoes work well too. Pack your things in a soft bag or back pack.


H&M Landing’s Captains have decades of experience fishing the coastal waters and offshore banks of Southern California and Baja Mexico. If for any reason your trip is terminated early due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstance, we will provide you with a wind check/rain check to return another day when conditions are more suited for your outing. It is our mission to provide you with a safe, fun, and productive experience each and every time we head offshore.
