Chac Chi Marina - 34ft Big Bite

Boulevard Kukulcan
Cancún QR, Mexico

Chac Chi Marina operates a fleet of vessels out of the famous fishing town of Cancun, Mexico, each focused on a certain aspect of these legendary waters. The Big Bite has been designed to dominate the waters offshore, where Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Wahoo, and Tuna can all be found over the course of the year.

The Big Bite is a 34’ Phoenix sportfisherman, powered by twin Cummins engines with a combined output of almost 1,000 HP. She comes equipped with the latest electronics, a full spread of outriggers and downriggers, and two fighting chairs - all the essentials for some awesome offshore angling.

But she is not all business. The Big Bite also sports a large flybridge to take in Cancun’s stunning views in style. Want to get out of the sun? Step into her fully air-conditioned interior, and relax in comfort in her spacious salon, or take a shower in her enclosed bathroom. Because life is always better with a bit of luxury.

The main target species vary throughout the year, with a wide variety of species migrating past on their way between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. On a half day trip, you can expect to either troll or bottom fish, with Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, and Bonito all being on the menu.

Book the boat for the whole day, and you could find yourself targeting Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, and White and Blue Marlin. If you somehow get bored of big game pelagics, you can also hit the reefs to fish for some tasty table fish, or swim and snorkel in this vibrant underwater wonderland.

Captain Miguel Sanchez has over 20 years of local experience, running charters around the Yucatan Peninsula. His skilled and professional crew will be on hand for the whole of your trip, rigging your tackle and making sure you stay hooked up all day long.

Chac Chi Marina’s mission is to make every charter as special as can be, and they will not give up without a fight. So head down to Cancun and get ready for that trip of a lifetime!

Thank you Capt Miguel, Chief Mate Jose & 2nd Julio for an awesome trip! ~ great fun with a variety of fishing: we some caught nice game fish trolling, including a certificate size wahoo and trophy sized barracuda; for bottom fishing we caught plenty more triggerfish and snapper. FV BigBite is a comfortable nice ride off / in shore and even an experienced offshore fisherman can pick up a few tips from this crew. The BigBite team cleaned our fish in a snap and we headed back to our vacation home with plenty of fresh fish supper for all friends and family ~ JW

We had a gorgeous day fishing and caught 10 barracuda. Literally didn’t have to do anything except reel them in. Just relax and drink and enjoy the view. It was nice to keep a couple that they fillet for us to take home. They advertise cooking your fish but refused when we asked.

It would have been nice to know when booking that they don’t go “deep sea fishing” on the 4 hour trip. We didn’t go very far, left 20 min late and arrived back 30 minutes early. Other than that it was a nice experience and the fishing was great.

good morning, i made my research and found out all the information, they didnt go very far for deep sea becauseseas was a little rough and the captain wants you to enjoy and have fun, far out was bad weather and bigger waves even we gave you a bigger boat.
about the restaurant especially this day they had and event for new years and the kitchen was so busy so thats why they refused but this is something that usually dont happen. it is true that 4 hrs is short time but is not impossible to do it.
we hope to see you next time.
