AAA Charters & Adventures – Dorado

A gem in its own right, Playa Del Carmen shows the best the Caribbean has to offer. Home to world-famous fishing and scuba diving, see for yourself why this spot is one of Mexico’s most popular tourist destinations! With AAA Charters and Adventures, you’ll explore the crystal clear waters with experienced captains. These guys know how to look after you and will always put your needs first. They speak your language, so just ask and they’ll oblige.

The “Dorado” is a luxury 46’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat. This vessel was designed to take you to the deepest waters. She’s powered by twin 450 HP Detroit diesel engines, so hold on tight as you whizz off to the clearest, deepest, most productive spots. Your comfort is the crew’s number-one priority, and the boat comes fitted with an AC cabin, a full toilet, shower, and kitchen. The crew will prepare a feast of various local snacks, along with water and sodas, so get ready for the full treatment on board.

Your pulses will be racing with some serious fishing. The huge species that await you offshore in the Caribbean command respect. Thankfully, the boat comes equipped with outriggers, downriggers, and a fighting chair to give you the advantage. Troll for prestigious species like Sailfish and Marlin. You’ll also catch the bite of Kingfish and delicious Mahi Mahi, among more. Try your hand at jigging, spinning, and bottom fishing for exciting Wahoo, Yellowtails, and Groupers.

After you’ve caught a Billfish, go after your daily limit of fish to take back to shore. The crew will clean and prepare your catch for you, so all you need to do is show up to a restaurant, and ask them to cook it – that is if you can stomach any more after all the snacks on board! (6 and 8 hour trips will include sandwiches, too). Gather a party of 10 of all ages together, and make the most of these rich waters with AAA Charters & Adventures. Please note that there’s a $10 per person pier fee that’s due on the day of your trip.
