Come to Akumal in Quintana Roo, Mexico and spend a fun day of fishing with Pio’s Tours. Your captain is a local fisherman and scuba diver who’s been living in the area for more than 45 years. He invites you nearshore and offshore to enjoy good service and take this experience back home. Come to Akumal and have a fun and enjoyable fishing trip!

You’ll be fishing from a restored 25’ Imemsa airboat that can take up to 6 guests. It runs on a 60 HP Yamaha engine. It uses a radio for navigation, features an ice-box to store your fish and drinks, and is equipped with outriggers and snorkeling gear. There will also be a first mate present during your trip to give you any help you may need.

You’ll target Mahi Mahi, Marlin, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Jack Crevalle, Wahoo, Great Barracuda, and more. You’ll attract fish by bottom fishing and trolling on light tackle and you can choose whether to keep or release your catch. Kids are welcome to join aboard.

The captain will provide you with all the tackle, lures, fishing licenses, and drinks, and will also clean and fillet your catch, free of charge. What you should bring is just some food.

Pio’s Tours invites you to experience fishing in Mexico and have a memorable time on the water!

Hi! My name is Manuel Jimenez, I'm 33 years old. I grew up in Aventuras Akumal. My family has been in the business of fishing for many years and it's been one of the greatest blessings of my life. Being the only Mexican kid on the block I grew up speaking English all the time. I was very blessed to grow up in this place since I could do the things I love the most like going out fishing and snorkeling with sea turtles. I love what I do and being able to transmit that to others so they can go home and share these experiences with their loved ones is a great feeling.
