Next time you’re in Playa del Carmen, make sure to take a trip with Fishbone! Captain Abraham has been fishing in the area his whole life and he knows these waters like the back of his palm. His native staff is greatly qualified in the Riviera Mayan´s different fishing varieties, as well as the vast diverse coral reef to practice and enjoy snorkeling.

The 23’ Mako vessel provides great comfort and security. This saltwater fishing boat is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine that will quickly reach high speeds and take you to your fishing spot. There are also navigational electronics, safety gear, a fighting chair, and trolling equipment. There’s enough space and seating area for 8 guests to join.

Even on a short trip, you can reach spots with fast offshore species. Target Snapper, Marlin, Sailfish, Barracuda, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, and more. The best part is that you don’t need a previous experience in order to be successful here. Your captain will show you everything you need to know, and then you just need to be persistent and have a bit of luck.

The crew will take care of your fishing equipment and they’ll also bring snorkeling gear in case you want to jump in. They also cover your fishing license, snack, and drinks. You only need to bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.

Start your next adventure here, with Fishbone!

I've been passionate about the sea ever since I was a kid. My favorite technique is trolling, and I prefer to release the fish after I've caught it.
