Fishing Boats Cancun - 23' Brava

Founded in 2015, Fishing Boats Cancun is a wholly local company, dedicated solely to sport fishing. All captains are from the area and have at least 15 years of experience in bottom fishing, trolling, and deep sea fishing, providing the best support for you to make that great catch. They also are all proficient in English so as to ensure that all customers feel at home and are able to communicate any needs you may have.

Tours will run on a 23’ Brava center console, giving you plenty of room as you use your strength to reel in a big one. Renovated in 2017, comfort is a priority for this charter, as you get to enjoy the stunning surroundings of the Caribbean Sea. The boat is powered by a 90 HP Mercury engine and comes complete with a fishfinder to guide you directly to the hottest fishing spots.

Outriggers and downriggers are fitted to the boat to better help you collect an abundance of species during your trip. The crew will provide you with a line each, and live and dead bait will be used to attract the catch. You’ll be targeting such exotic, colorful fish as Red Snapper, Mahi Mahi and Marlin, among others. For those that you can keep, the captain or crew will clean and prepare them for you to take home.

Whether you’re a professional angler or just getting started, there’s room for you on the boat. There’s even beer on board, too. If you want to get up close to the beautiful underwater nature, snorkeling equipment is also included in the price. There really is no excuse to miss out!

There will be a $5 charge at the marina for each customer.
