“Excellent service, vast local experience, and a fun-loving captain.” These are the words best used to describe the “Black Moon”, who will take you on an exciting fishing journey off the coast of Mexico.

Join Captain Marco Calderon on board of the Black Moon, a custom 28’ offshore sport fisherman. She’s quite spacious, allowing for up to 5 anglers to fish in comfort, without tangling lines. You’ll get to your fishing grounds in no time, since she’s powered by an impressive 150 HP Mercury Power Pro with a maximum cruising speed of 60 knots!

You’ll fish all over the place with Capt. Marco. From nearshore to offshore, even heading out to Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel on longer trips, the range of areas fished is diverse. You’ll troll for true pelagic predators like Blue and White Marlin, or, if you fancy a fight, the Yellowtail Amberjack bites hard. Other species you can target are Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Albacore Tuna, and Wahoo.

Don’t worry about parking, there’s free parking at the marina and the captain can help you park if you’re having trouble – that’s the kind of friendly service you can expect from Capt. Marco.

The charter will provide you with all the required equipment for this trip. The minimum age for kids is 5 years old, and you will be provided with all required PFDs. The crew will clean and fillet your catch free of charge, though gratuity is always appreciated.

Book a trip with Black Moon to cast off on an amazing fishing adventure in the gorgeous waters of Puerto Morelos!
