ShoreTrips says...

The Yucatan Peninsula offers unbeatable vacation options and the fishing waters are famous worldwide! In fact, the area where we'll be fishing has been featured in saltwater fishing publications such as Marlin, Saltwater Sportsman, and Sportfishing, as well as several times on ESPN.

Hop aboard one of our fully-equipped fishing boats for a memorable day out on the water! Peak fishing season runs from early March through July when sailfish and marlin are migrating through the canal. During these months, the Puerto Aventuras marina fills up with yachts from several states and countries with one thing in mind--SAILFISH!

What this means for anglers is multiple shots at sailfish per day (15-20 is not at all unusual!). Every year, there are double digit grand slams (sailfish and white-and-blue marlin in one day) and sometimes there are double grand slams (two slams in one day) and super grand slams (add a swordfish).

Besides sailfish, other abundant fish include wahoo, dorado, tuna, kingfish, and barracuda. These are plentiful year round. Best of all, we set our baits as soon as we exit the marina, so there's no travel time. We've actually caught sailfish so soon after boarding the boat that we've released them in the marina!

  • This tour includes:

Transfer / Meeting Instructions

Taxi and Transfers Required Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.

Special Instructions

• Transfers are not included in the price of this tour. The taxi ride to the fishing boat from the Playa del Carmen cruise ship pier takes about 15 mintues and costs approximately $11US per taxi for up to 4 people.
• Deep Sea fishing means all poles are held in place by rod holders until a fish takes the bait. At that point, the mate or captain will set the hook, then hand the pole to the angler once the angler is seated in the fighting chair.
• We suggest that you bring a swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, and your camera.
• All boats have interior restrooms.
• Beer can be purchased at the store in the marina.

Restrictions

• This tour is not available on Christmas Day or New Year's Day.
