La Bonita Fishing Tours

Playa Del Carmen has lots of beauties to offer and some of them are far off the coast. Join La Bonita Fishing Tours and explore the depths of this amazing lace. Captain Martin is your guide and host for this unforgettable trip and he gladly welcomes anglers of all skill levels. He learned everything about catching fish from his father and now runs a family business with his sister Gloria.

You’ll be fishing on a 27’ Imemsa boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. This center console offers lots of space for each angler and everybody can fish in comfort, without waiting for their turn. A major part of the boat is covered by a bimini top, so there’s lots of shade. The vessel is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and a cooler, navigational electronics, downriggers, and snorkeling gear.

Trolling and bottom fishing are the most efficient techniques for these waters and they can get you Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and many other species. You get to keep most of the catch and the crew will even clean it for you free of charge. So start looking for great nearby restaurants and enjoy a well-earned meal after the trip.

Getting ready means you just need to bring some snacks and sun protection. Everything else is covered by the crew, including your fishing licenses, equipment, and bottled water.

All trips are family-friendly, so use this chance to catch amazing fish and bond with your loved ones. La Bonita Fishing Tours is available year round, just choose your date.

"My dad was passionate about fishing. He was always improving his boats and buying new equipment. We went to the fishing tournaments together and I inherited his love for the sea. As the years passed, the family business was handed down to me. These days, I'm in charge of the fishing boats. My main priority is that visitors get to experience what it means to fish in this beautiful location, on board comfortable and safe vessels, with an experienced crew." Gloria Sanchez inherited her love of fishing from her dad, and she runs her successful charter alongside her brother, so it's a true family business! Her experience and knowledge of this area means that she knew exactly who would be the perfect captain to take guests out on their adventures – Capt. Martin is a fun, easy-going captain who knows these waters like the back of his hand, and can't wait to get you to the hottest fishing spots around. If you're looking for an adventure you won't forget, come aboard!
