Fishing Charters Cancun started their charter operation back in 1996, and have been steadily growing their fleet ever since. Today, their bilingual crews combine over 60 years of fishing experience in Cancun and Riviera Maya, offering services to experienced anglers and beginner fishermen alike, couples and singles, family outings or company retreats. Whether this would be a learning experience for you or you’re already a seasoned pro, the La Risa team is committed to making sure you have a fishing trip you won’t forget.

Due to Cancun’s location on the Caribbean Coast, these waters offer some of the quickest running times to reaching the offshore fishing grounds lying beyond the Continental Shelf. These hotspots play host to a large variety of deep sea pelagics such as Tuna, Billfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda and many others, depending on the season.

*Please note that there is an additional $10 per-person dock fee.

Our overall trip was a success.  Captain Arturo and Chico did a great job of putting us on the fish.  The boat itself, although large enough to handle the rough waters, was lacking in comfort in regards to seating and the restroom.  The only real negative about the trip was the barrage of upselling before we left the dock.  Immediately up arrival they began trying to upgrade us to a larger boat.  We booked a four hour trip which is only two hours of actual fishing since they require an hour to get out to the fishing grounds and another hour to return.  We ended up extending the trip prior to departing for half of what it would have cost when booking.  Also, they require you to stay seated while reeling in the fish.

Hi Mr Compton:
Thank you for your comments and feedback.
They will help us to improve the quality of our Service

Before we departure we like to let our customers know all the logistics, Fishing procedures, weather conditions and some recomendations about their Fishing trip.

We always recommend to let our Crew to prepare the equipment and to set the hooks.
You will do all the work to reel them in taking turns.
That way we make sure to have more chances to catch fish and we avoid losing equipment, but if you know how to set the hooks and you want to do it yourself, we always tell everyone that you only had to ask our Crew and they will let you do it.

Also,we saw the need to let you know that we had bigger boats available, specially because we had windy days and choppy waters.
So for you and your family, to be more comfortable and with more space, we offered that recommendation but only as an option.

Besides, you booked your trip for 4 hours.
Most of the time our Customers dont know that it takes between 45 minutes and one hour to get to the fishing spot, so if you booked your trip for 4 hours, you will have 2 hours of fishing.
The difference between 4 and 6 hours is $100 USD
You would fish for arround 4 hours and will have double chances to catch more fish.
*More time you are there, more chances you will have to catch more fish

Sometimes people prefer to wait to see if they are catching fish and having fun, so they decide to stay longer after their departure, but in that case each hour cost $100 USD

Thats why we decided to let you know in advance so you could choose from the two options in case you wanted to extend your trip

We hope to see you next time
