Aquadventures - 21’ Tauro

Puerto De Abrigo Banco Playa
Cozumel QR, Mexico

The Cozumel flats are legendary for their huge Bonefish, Snook, Permit, and Jacks. Aquadventures is a premier fishing charter that has a lot of local experience and is ready to put you on the hottest bite in these shallow waters!

The boat you’ll fish from is a 21’ Imemsa, perfectly-suited to fishing the flats. She can take 2 anglers, with a third passenger who can just sit back and enjoy the ride (without fishing). The vessel is powered by a 60HP Yamaha outboard engine, giving her more than enough power to speed through the shallows.

You will fish with Captain Pedro Zapata, a local expert in fishing offshore, nearshore, and of course, the famous flats. The fish you’ll go after are truly varied with species such as the Bonefish, Triggerfish, Mangrove Snapper, Permit, Snook, or Tarpon. You can spend your day either fly fishing or spinning, depending on your preference. Captain Pedro will happily assist and instruct you in either of these techniques.

All required equipment is supplied by the captain. Lures and fly fishing rods are provided as well. The captain will clean and fillet your catch free of charge, though a gratuity is always greatly appreciated. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, a waterproof camera, and a burning desire to catch the fish of a lifetime!

Wonderful water. Northwest wind made it tough to find bones or tarpon. Struck out but no fault of the crew and setup. Really tried their hearts out but that’s Fishing.

Thank you Ted,

Yes, that northwest wind made it very hard.

We hope to see you back soon to give it another shot.
