Albatros Charters - Cozumel 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!
