Fish Playa – Flyin Fish 40’

Explore the ocean off the coast of Mexico like never before! Join Fish Playa and soak in the sun while putting your angling skills to the test with some monster fish. Captain Andy, the only American captain in the Riviera Maya with 30 years of experience, and Captain Leo, who’s been fishing the area for 12 years, have joined forces to provide you with an exceptional experience catching fish.

You’ll enjoy your time on "Lobster Tales", a 40’ Luhrs offshore sportfishing boat licensed for 10 people. Relax in the flybridge shade and don’t sacrifice any of your home comforts with a toilet and a bed on board. The boat has navigational equipment, which will put you on the fish in no time combined with your captain’s experience.

Reel in some of the prized fish in the area using Offshore Angler rods, and Shimano and TLD’s reels provided by Capt. Andy. You’ll go trolling for some of the big pelagics that call these waters their home. The captain will clean your catch if you wish to taste some of it later in the evening for dinner.

Imagine releasing a gorgeous Sailfish while soaking in the beautiful views of the Mayan Riviera! You’ll get the chance to come face-to-face with species like Marlin, Wahoo, Barracuda, and Mahi Mahi as well. Live bait is prohibited in the area, so you’ll be using a variety of artificial lures.

Kids are always welcome on board, so come share the excitement of your children reeling in their first fish! For some more fun, ask your captain to provide snorkeling equipment, and he’ll prepare vests and masks for an underwater adventure.

If you enjoy your time with the crew, you can consider leaving a 20% tip for the first mate. Make sure to bring hats, sunscreen, drinks, and food if you want to. The captain can provide cinnamon rolls and potato chips, as well as diet drinks.

Stop planning and book Fish Playa for an unforgettable time in the untouched nature of these Mexican waters!
