If you’re looking for the ultimate Mexican Caribbean experience, you can’t go wrong with Alfonso Tours fishing out of Playa del Carmen. Captain Alfonso Arcos is a knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced local who specializes in nearshore and offshore guided trips. He’s a true expert on the Caribbean with 30 years of commercial and sportfishing experience.
He invites you to spend the day aboard “Calipso III,” a 27’ Imemsa saltwater fishing center console that can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers. This beauty comes with a Yamaha F100 BETX engine, top-notch marine electronics and safety gear, along with plenty of shade. It also features outriggers, downriggers, 2 fighting chairs, an ice-box, and snorkeling gear for all 6 passengers.
The captain will show you a variety of techniques and take you fishing in the hottest spots the area has to offer. You’ll get a chance to try your hand at bottom fishing, jigging, and trolling, based on the season and what you’re after. All 6 anglers can fish at the same time when bottom fishing, and rotating while trolling. The captain can take you up to 20 miles in pursuit of various A-listers.
Fishing in the area is excellent year-round, especially for Tuna, Wahoo, and Barracuda. During spring and summer, you’ll be trolling for big game species such as Blue and White Marlin, Mahi, and Sailfish. If you want to go after Amberjack, jigging for them is exceptionally efficient October–March. To get the most out of your Caribbean adventure, you can always combine epic fishing with some relaxing snorkeling.
Alfonso Tours will provide you with state-of-the-art Penn International and Shimano gear, lures, licenses, and drinks. Snacks are available on 8 and 6-hour trips. Live bait is caught during the trip, and complimentary fish cleaning is done after the trip. You just need to bring any food you’d like, sunscreen, and a desire to catch fish.
