Big Boss - Water Adventure would like to welcome you to Puerto Morelos and offer you some of the greatest fishing experiences in the area, cruising through fish-rich turquoise Caribbean waters. Captain Jesus Espinosa is a passionate fisherman who can’t wait to put you on the catch of your life.

The captain loves teaching kids (all ages welcome) and he will get them on a load of fish, starting with smaller and working up to bigger fish throughout the day. He can also go all-out sportfishing with pros.

“Big Boss” is a 38 Chris-Craft convertible boat powered by twin 375 HP Caterpillar 3208 engines. This beauty can take up to 10 anglers fishing without tangling lines. It’s equipped with the latest navigational technology and fishing equipment, including 5 outriggers, downriggers, and the best, most colorful lures on the market to bring in the big ones.

Depending on the time of the year, you can reel in prestigious catches such as Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, White Marlin, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Barracuda. The charter offers topwater trolling, as well as deep bottom fishing.

Your fishing experience will include all the tackle, lures, frozen Ballyhoo, along with sodas and beer (national). On trips that are longer than 4 hours, the crew will happily make a delicious ceviche with your catch of the day or they can also clean and fillet the fish for you to take home. The captain can even take you to the best local restaurants where you can have your catch cooked up with rice and guacamole. The best part? It will cost you only $5!

Big Boss - Water Adventure will provide you with an experience like no other on the Riviera Maya, including both fishing and snorkeling on the second largest reef in the world.

Since I was a kid, I liked fishing. I live in a fishing village of Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico, in which I grew up happy with ropes, boats, hooks, and fishing on the dock every day. When I was 12 years old, I had my first boat to take care of as I now take care of my fishing boats. I started participating in fishing tournaments in the municipality and the state — I won several tournaments, such as "Andres Garcia Lavin" in Puerto Morelos (1st place), "Riviera Maya International Tournament" in Playa del Carmen, "Prof. Augusto R. Sosa Centeno" (1st place), "Copa Capitan Ferrat International" in Cancun (1st place), and "Rodeo de Lanchas Mexicanas" in Cozumel (1st place). I have also passed to the National of Mazatlan and participated in the World Cup.
