Living A Dream – Panga

There’s a reason why Captain Carlos Escobosa decided to name his charter company "Living A Dream" – departing out of beautiful Puerto Morelos, a fishing adventure in these waters certainly feels like a dream come true!

Whether you’re a new angler looking to add some spice to your Mexican vacation, or a seasoned fisherman wanting to hook your next trophy fish, Capt. Carlos and his crew will expertly guide you around this plentiful fishery. Cast your line for tasty Snapper and Grouper close to shore, or explore the deep for big game beasts such as Mahi Mahi and Marlin.

You’ll be traveling on board your captain’s 25’ Panga Imensa offshore sport fishing vessel, built to accommodate up to 4 guests. She’s the perfect option for groups of angling buddies who want to cast a line together, as well as families looking to bond through fishing. Just make sure any children joining in on the adventure are age 4 or above!

Your vessel is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, so you’ll be traveling to the hotspots in plenty of comfort and security. She’s also equipped with downriggers, which will help you plumb the depths around the reefs when bottom fishing for tasty Grouper and Snapper!

You’ll generally be both bottom fishing and trolling during your trip, which will give you the chance to hook a whole host of species. As well as some tasty table fare, you’ll also be able to battle big game such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish. Don’t worry if you’re a new angler – your captain will be on hand to show you the ropes, and you’ll soon be casting your line like a pro.

Each trip includes snacks and drinks, as well as access to top-quality Penn and Daiwa fishing gear. Your captain is more than happy to clean and fillet any catch you’d like to take home with you. A tip is much appreciated!

Your fishing license will be provided for you, so all you need to do is hop aboard Living A Dream charters and get ready to make all your fishing wishes come true!

Captain Carlos Escobosa grew up on these waters and has been fishing all of his life, so it was only natural that he'd turn his love for fishing into a career! He first cast a line when he was very young, and decided to get his captain's license in 2010. He loves being out on the ocean, and this was the main driving force behind his determination to set up his own charter business. He also loves meeting new people and introducing them to these waters. The best part of his job is whenever the fish bite, and he gets to see just how thrilled his customers are!
