Bonita Fishing Team would like to welcome you to Cancun and offer you some of the greatest fishing experiences in the area, cruising through fish-rich turquoise Caribbean waters. Captain Carlos Carranza has been fishing these waters since he was 5 years old, so he knows a lot of honey holes you can explore.

Everything you need will be provided for you aboard the 48’ Ocean Yacht offshore sportfishing boat, so you don’t have to sacrifice comfort. With a capacity of 12 guests, it comes equipped with a fishing chair and brand new rods, as well as all the electronics you will need for a productive day.

The boat has two bathrooms with a shower on board, as well as three bunk beds. You’ll find it’s very comfortable, since it has air conditioning, a kitchen, and a multimedia system.

Depending on the time of the year, you can reel in some of the most prized fish in the area. Go trolling for Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Barracuda, or bottom fishing for Grouper and Red Snapper.

If you’re feeling adventurous, spearfishing is an option as well. You should arrange it in advance because an experienced guide needs to join in. There is snorkeling equipment on board as well, just let your captain know in advance if you’re up for it.

You’ll be fishing using live bait caught on the trip. Capt. Carlos will be happy to clean your catch, so you can have the experience of catching your own dinner.

This is a great boat to bring your family and friends on, and kids of all ages are welcome. The captain will provide you with life jackets of all sizes, and there is a liferaft, so your safety is guaranteed.

The first mate goes on all trips, and tips are encouraged. The team is committed to providing a great day of fishing you won’t forget anytime soon.

All trips include drinks and snacks at no additional cost, just make sure to bring your fishing license, and your fishing adventure with Bonita Fishing Team can start!
