La Reina Sport Fishing Riviera Maya

Want to explore the crystal-clear waters of Playa Del Carmen on an angling adventure that will leave you feeling like true royalty? Come aboard La Reina (‘The Queen’) Sport Fishing Riviera Maya, and get ready to be treated to a luxurious and productive day out on these fishing grounds!

La Reina Sport Fishing Riviera Maya is a local, family-run charter that’s proud to offer authentic and friendly Mexican-style fishing trips for every type of angler. This charter started with Capitan Enrique, who named the boat as a gift for his wife. Years of traditions were passed down to his children, Alex and Gloria, and now they’re running the family business with plenty of pride and knowledge about the local area!

You’ll be heading out on your adventure onboard La Reina, a 30’ ARCA center console that can comfortable hold 8 guests. She’s of the safest boats around due to her size and height, so you’ll be guaranteed a smooth and effortless journey out to the hottest fishing spots. Onboard, you’ll find a comfortable seating area, private toilet, top-of-the-line navigational gear, and life jackets for all ages. There are also outriggers for maximum fishability!

This area of Playa Del Carmen is enviably close to some Marlin hotspots—you’ll only have to travel for about 20 mins to battle a variety of Blue and White varieties. You’ll also come face-to-gills with other big game superstars, such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Sailfish. You’ll be accompanied by an experienced captain and crew who will guide you through every step of your trip, and will even help you set your bait and cast off. Get ready to reel ‘em in!

Your trip includes top-quality Penn and Shimano rods and reels. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore these waters up close and personally, as snorkeling gear is available. There’s room onboard to store drinks and snacks, so bring along your favorites! Come aboard La Reina Sport Fishing Riviera Maya for the angling adventure of a lifetime!

"My dad was passionate about fishing. He was always improving his boats and buying new equipment. We went to the fishing tournaments together and I inherited his love for the sea. As the years passed, the family business was handed down to me. These days, I'm in charge of the fishing boats. My main priority is that visitors get to experience what it means to fish in this beautiful location, on board comfortable and safe vessels, with an experienced crew." Gloria Sanchez inherited her love of fishing from her dad, and she runs her successful charter alongside her brother, so it's a true family business! Her experience and knowledge of this area means that she knew exactly who would be the perfect captain to take guests out on their adventures – Capt. Vivi is a fun, easy-going captain who knows these waters like the back of his hand, and can't wait to get you to the hottest fishing spots around. If you're looking for an adventure you won't forget, come aboard!
