Have a fun day on the water and catch fish together with Juancho. Your friendly crew will meet you in Playa Del Carmen, Quintana Roo and take you to the area’s rich inshore and offshore waters, reefs, and wrecks. This crew will know where to find the best bite and give you the best chance for making a big catch. Join in and discover the beautiful waters of Mexico!

The crew offers you a memorable time on the water, which includes 4, 6, and 8-hour trips. You will mainly be fishing for Marlin, Little Tunny, Mahi Mahi, Horse-eye Jack, Grouper, Cero Mackerel, Bonito, and more. The techniques you can use to attract your targets are light and heavy tackle, deep sea fishing, big game fishing, trolling, spinning, drift fishing, as well as jigging. Sailfish and Marlin have to be released but you’re welcome to keep all the other species you catch.

Your trip will take place on a 27’ Imensa fiberglass airboat that can safely take up to 4 guests. It runs on a 60 HP Yamaha two stroke engine and uses GPS, fishfinder, as well as radio technology for quick and safe movement on the water. The boat comes with an ice-box and is equipped with a fighting chair, snorkeling gear, outriggers, and downriggers.

The captain will take care of all the fishing equipment, licenses, catch cleaning, and drinks. On some trips, you’ll also get sandwiches and fruits.

Book today and have a wonderful time fishing in Mexico!

The captain's first job was in a water sports activities center when he was 18 years old. He worked there as a swimming, sailing, diving, and snorkeling guide. Then he moved to the famous 14th Street to a community of local fishermen where he worked for 10 years as a reception guide for customers looking for boat rides, snorkeling, and all types of fishing trips. After that, the captain took the decision to buy a boat so he could take out his own customers and do his best to put smiles on their faces. The captain tries to learn something new about fishing every day!
