Fishing Charters Cancun – Chutzpah

The waters off the coast of Cancun are brimming in life, so come explore them for yourself. Join Fishing Charters Cancun as they take you on a journey of a lifetime! With over 60 years of combined experience, every member of the crew knows these waters like the back of their hand, so you’re guaranteed a productive trip.

Enjoy your day on Chutzpah – the 34’ Phoenix saltwater fishing boat, perfect for exploring these productive grounds. It can accommodate up to 8 people, so you can bring your family and friends on a nice fishing getaway. Onboard facilities include a cabin with a toilet, a bedroom, as well as a flybridge, so you don’t have to give up any comfort.

The crew will provide you with all the fishing equipment, including Shimano and Penn rods and reels, as well as both outriggers and downriggers. There are two fighting chairs on board, so you can hook some of those monster fish. The crew will be happy to clean and fillet your catch, so you can have a taste upon your return home.

Due to Cancun’s location in the Caribbean, these waters provide short running times to the various hotspots lying beyond the Continental Shelf. The local fishing grounds remain productive throughout the year, and host a large variety of big game species, including Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Jack Crevalle.

Feel free to bring your kids, and make this a great family adventure. Drinks will be provided on board, just bring some snacks to stay energized throughout the day. Note that there is an additional $10 per person dock fee.

Join Fishing Charters Cancun and explore the pristine waters off the coast of Mexico for an unforgettable time!

    The best chance to go after everything in season. If you would like to target Sailfish and Marlin, this is the trip to try that on. If you would just like to catch as many fish as possible, you could go trolling and bottom fishing instead. Either way, the Chutzpah crew will have more time to move from one area to another, to make sure they find the right spot for you.

    For hundred dollars more than the Half Day trip, you'll effectively double your chances of catching fish, as instead of fishing for about 2 hours, you'll be fishing for 4 hours. You will also get a chance to fish for Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi if they're in season. The crew is also usually fishing for Barracuda, Blackfin Tuna, and Bonito, Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish.

    It takes about one hour to get to the fishing grounds. It takes more or less the same to get back, so this is recommended as a minimum trip time for Deep Sea fishing. You'll fish for Wahoo, Dorado, Barracuda, Kingfish, Bonitos, Blackfin Tuna, Red Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Rainbow Runners, and Amberjacks. On this trip, however, there likely won't be enough time to go for Sailfish or Marlin.
