Aquadventures – Why Knot?

The gorgeous waters off the coast of Cozumel are well-known to be teeming with exciting fish to catch. Explore them firsthand and have an adventure with Aquadventures – Why Knot?

Hop aboard his impressive 29’ Topaz Angler boat. It was fully restored in 2013, with all the amenities you can expect to find on a modern, comfortable vessel. There’s a kitchen, full-head toilet, and a multi-media system on board. The boat can accommodate up to 10 people, so bring all your friends and family.

Don’t let the luxuries fool you – the boat is all about serious sportfishing with outriggers, a fighting chair, a flybridge, as well as an advanced navigational system. The crew will provide you with rods and reels, but don’t forget to bring an icebox, since he’ll clean your catch for you to take home.

Fishing in the area is very rewarding, as you can target a wide range of species, from the nearshore bottom feeders to the big pelagic monsters that roam the open waters. Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, Jack, Wahoo, Barracuda, Tuna, Marlin, and Sailfish can all be targeted depending on your preference and skill.

Children are welcome on board, so bring them for some quality family time. There will be snacks and drinks on board. Gratuity for the crew is always appreciated. All you need to bring is some sun protection so you can enjoy your time, and you’re all set!

Get out on the prolific waters around Cozumel, and have a fishing trip of a lifetime with Aquadventures – Why Knot?!
