Fishing Charters Cancun was established back in 1996 and hasn’t stopped growing since. The fleet’s many members speaks both English and Spanish, and have more than 60 years of Cancun fishing experience combined. Fishing Cancun welcome all types of fishermen aboard its vessels; from hardcore anglers to complete beginners, couples or singles, family trips or corporate retreats, they’re always excited to help their guests experience the potential of Cancun’s deep sea fishing firsthand.

Thanks to Cancun’s positioning along the Caribbean Coast, you’ll be able to experience some of the quickest running times to reaching the fishing sweet spots beyond the Continental Shelf. The offshore waters of Riviera Maya are inhabited by a large variety of big game fish, including the likes of Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna and many others, depending on the time of year.

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

    Full Day trips provide you with the best chance to fish for every big game species in season. Plenty of time to go fishing for Sailfish and Marlin, or you can go bottom fishing and trolling if you just want to catch as much fish as possible. Whatever you want to target, the Happy Face crew will have more freedom and time to switch from one fishing spot to another, making sure they found the right one for you.

    You fish for double the time compared to a Half Day trip (4 hours instead of about 2) for 100$ more. Apart from doubling your chances of catching fish, this also allows you to go after Billfish (White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish), Wahoo and Mahi, assuming that they're in season, of course. The crew also tends to target Bonitos and Blackfin Tuna, Barracuda, Snapper, Amberjack, Grouper, Triggerfish and more.

    4 hours trip, starts at 7:00 AM
    up to 5 persons
    Since the fishing grounds are about an hour away and it takes more-less the same to get back, this is the minimum recommended time to go Deep Sea fishing in Cancun. You'll get to fish for Wahoo and Tuna, Barracuda and Dorado, Bonito, Amberjack, Red and Yellowtail Snapper, Triggerfish, Grouper and more. There won't be, however, enough time to target Marlin or other Billfish during a Half Day trip.
