Albatros Charters - Cozumel Mexico

Puerto de Abrigo - Banco Playa…
San Miguel De Cozumel QR, Mexico

Albatros Charters are a boutique operation that caters and cares about the needs of every angler they have on board. Mexico never looked so enticing and welcoming than when fishing in the pristine waters of San Miguel de Cozumel.

“Albatros”, your boat for the day, is a 42’ Chris Craft with the capacity to accommodate 6 anglers that can cast their lines without bumping elbows. The vessel has twin 250 HP Caterpillar engines to cut through the waves seamlessly and bring you to the most plentiful fishing grounds around.

She is also fully rigged with excellent navigation gear to get you on the fish faster, a fighting chair to help you reel in that extra feisty catch, and a flybridge to take in the view while waiting for the fish to take the bait. You also have a private toilet on board, and even a small kitchen, should you need it.

When you arrive to the hottest fishing spots, test your luck and lines by fishing for Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Kingfish, Wahoo, and prized Sailfish and Marlin. Different types of Tuna, as well as Goliath Grouper, are on the menu too, depending on the length of your trip and your preferences.

Heading out with the crew of the Albatros means you get the chance to fish, but also snorkel, as long as you ask the captain to prepare the equipment beforehand. Drinks like water, lemonade, and sodas are included in the price, as well as snacks and lunch on longer trips.

You don’t have to worry about fishing gear either — rods, reels, and tackle are all a part of the trip package. You’ll also have a first mate on board, and you can ask him anything fishing related, he will gladly be of service. If you’re satisfied with his work, gratuity is much appreciated.

All you really need to do when you come aboard Albatros Charters is be ready to fish and have the best time — they’ll take care of everything else!

Fishing in Cozumel for bucket list. Some people believe Friday the 13th is an unlucky date. I picked that day to see how it would go. With the Albatross Crew it was my lucky day. We landed a nice sailfish as well as some others, but the sail fish was what I was After. Hard working crew made it happen.

Fishing was a bit slow but we manage to catch 2 barracuda. Our captain and crew prep us an amazing ceviche with one of fish that just got.
Fantastic day, delicious food and great crew.

It was a special day to fish as it was a guys trip on my wedding day. We were picked up on time at our resorts pier which was very nice. Almost immiediatly we had our first catch of the day a great barricuda. Throughout the day we had times where 3 and 4 tuna where on the lines at once so everyone had multiple times to reel in fish. Several more barricuda were caught as well as a bite from a sailfish. The captain and crew never gave up getting us on the fish as there were some slow periods where fish just werent biting. Could not be happier with this trip and would recommend this charter again
