San Miguel De Cozumel QR, Mexico

If you are game for some serious fishing fun, give Bandida Charters a try. The crew will put their wealth of local knowledge and impressive talent to work for you, whatever your fishing ambitions might be.

They own an impressive fleet of sportfishing boats in Cozumel. You will be fishing aboard a 28’ Bertram offshore boat, which as built in 1988 and refurbished in 2017. This spacious vessel can accommodate up to 4 anglers and cruise at a top speed of 18 knots.

The boat comes powered by twin 170 HP Yanmar engines and is fully equipped for a day out on the water. It features modern fishfinding and navigational electronics to save your time while searching for the big one. As well as that, there is a fighting chair for those who are up to a challenge, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day, and a restroom, which is a much-needed thing when you spend your day offshore.

Target Sailfish, Wahoo, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Wahoo, Barracuda, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and many other species that are in season and biting. Drift the reefs for Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper, Grouper, and Amberjack. Deep sea fishing or bottom fishing – the choice is yours.

Grab your favorite fly fishing gear and hop onboard. Or use one of the crew’s conventional rods, along with reels, lures, and tackle. Every trip includes snorkeling equipment.
