Operating out of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, Paradise specializes in reef and offshore fishing. Their main priority is providing their clients with fun, productive, and most of all, productive fishing experiences.

Their boat is a 30’ Scout center console powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha V6 engines. The vessel comes with top-notch safety gear, marine electronics, outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, and an ice-box. It also features a restroom, a shower, a sitting area, and even a multimedia system. 

You’ll get to try a variety of fishing techniques, but the crew’s favorite trip setup is 3 hours of trolling, an hour of deep fishing, and an hour of jigging. They also offer Swordfishing, though it needs to be requested prior to the trip so they can prepare the baits.

Depending on the bite, you’ll have a chance at reeling in the likes of Sailfish, Marlin, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and so much more. You’ll also have the option of stopping by a fantastic beach and eating a delicious ceviche made out of the catch of the day.

A day before the trip, you will get a list of the drinks that you’ll have on board, and if there are any special requests, the crew might provide it or share the price with you. The charter also covers top-tier fishing gear, live bait, lures, and fishing licenses. Catch cleaning and packaging is also included.

Join Paradise for an incredible day on the water and get ready to hook a big one!
