VIP Private Tours welcome you to the magical Playa Del Carmen area where you can live the experience of fishing and snorkeling in the Mayan Riviera. They have a professional licensed crew with more than 20 years of experience of their Captains and Mates, who will work tirelessly to make your trip a lasting memory.
Using natural and artificial baits, all fishing and snorkeling equipment, you will head into Mexican waters and your fishing adventure. You will have fishing licenses and taxes regulated by the crew. The boat is equipped with 4 fishing rods, a downrigger, and 2 outriggers. The boat is a 23 foot Mimsa skiff, originally built in 2000 and powered by a 150 HP Yamaha F150 engine.
Your trip can consist of bottom fishing and trolling while you sail to the reefs, where you can also snorkel. You can also try your hand at fly fishing with music, water, Corona beers, sodas, and ice, which are also included in the trip price.
These trips are made for pure enjoyment and are meant to relax you while at the same time giving you enough exercise while fighting fish. The crew highly recommend catch and release in order to preserve the local fisheries.

Trip was ok. Still not sure what happened. Arrived at the meetup and Mike wasn’t there. A guy said it was too rough to launch from there and to follow him to the safe launch site. Arrived there and they seemed to know about the price etc, had safety gear and were obviously competent captains. Still don’t know their names, but they had a cooler with drinks. Waves were pretty high and choppy, and we had to cut the trip short due to my daughters sea sickness, but still managed to catch a beautiful Mahi mahi. My son was upset that the captain kept the fish because he wanted to catch and release, but I think that was just a communication gap. I still don’t know if we were scammed into going with someone who wasn’t Mike, or if these guys were working for Mike (apparently Mike does the scheduling). Since I didn’t hear from Mike, I assume this was the arrangement butmore clarity would have been appreciated.

My wife and I were on our 2 week honeymoon and this was by far our favorite part of the whole trip!! Worth every penny because of how private it was plus we caught a bunch of fish!! We also went snorkeling and to a cenote and had fresh ceviche from our catches prepared by the captain!! This is defiantly a must do and honestly this is the first review I’ve ever done because of how awesome it was!!
