Chac Chi Marina – 34' Big Bite

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. Captain Miguel Sanchez has over 20 years of local experience. His skilled and professional crew will be on hand, rigging your tackle and making sure you stay hooked up all day long.

The Big Bite is a 34’ Phoenix offshore sportfishing boat, powered by twin Cummins engines with a combined output of almost 1,000 HP. It 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.

It also sports a large flybridge to take in Cancun’s stunning views in style. Want to get out of the sun? Step into the fully air-conditioned interior, relax in the comfort of the spacious salon, or take a shower in the 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. You can also hit the reefs to fish for some tasty table fish, or swim and snorkel in this vibrant underwater wonderland.

The dock fee is $10 per person.

Chac Chi Marina’s mission is to make every trip as special as it 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!
