Be Fun Cancun

Your Cancun visit just got more exciting! You have the chance to join Be Fun Cancun and spend a day fishing with locals. They offer two main types of fishing – casting and spearfishing. No matter what trip you choose, they’ll provide your fishing equipment and make sure you have a great time. You don’t need previous experience and you can get basic training on your way to the fishing spot.
You’ll be fishing on a 21’ MercPanga boat. This center console accommodates up to 6 anglers on regular fishing trips or 4 anglers if you take a spearfishing adventure. Powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, this boat can reach the speed of 25 knots and get you to the best spots in no time. She’s equipped with navigational electronics, so you’ll locate the schools of fish easily.
Cancun’s rich coral reefs and clear waters hold lots of amazing fish. Depending on how far out you go, you can target Permit, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, Kingfish, Red Snapper, even Sailfish, Wahoo, and Barracuda. You get to keep the catch and the crew will clean it for you.
You’ll be provided with fishing equipment you need, whether you choose to cast with a rod or use spearguns. There’s soft drinks and beer on the boat but you need to bring your snacks. As a special treat on spearfishing trips, the crew will prepare fresh sashimi out of your catch. Pick up can be arranged, but there’s an extra charge for this service.
Be Fun Cancun caters to your needs. You can be an experienced angler excited about spearfishing or you just want a relaxing day on the water with your family – they can adjust each trip to you. Get in touch and have fun!
