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!

Captain Miguel was awesome along with the rest of the crew. Captain Miguel put is in the exact spot we needed to be to catch fish. My family have been on several fishing trips in various countries and this was by far the most successful.

Paid for transportation round trip to the marina. Driver was about 20 mins late so we hopped in a cab. To his defense there was some kind of a foot race through town and thy had half of the road closed down. They were apologetic. Left the dock a little late as well. I booked a trip on the Big Bite boat and we went on the Happy Ours boat. The boat was a little dated. No AC (but never needed it) Captain Juan and his crew worked very hard all day. They had us on some fish fairly early. I was hoping to catch at least a mahi mahi or a sailfish. I caught both. Juan asked if we wanted to spend the last hour fishing on the bottom and we thought that would be fun. He knew right where to go and the action was fast. Caught 6 trigger fish, a red snapper, and a big Grouper. Trolling we caught 1 Bonito, 1 Blackfin tuna, 1 Barracuda, 3 Mahi Mahi and of course the sail fish. It was a great day of fishing. The Crew was wonderful and they cooked up some filets for us at the restaurant at the marina. They asked me while I was fighting the sailfish if I wanted to keep it. I said I just wanted some pictures and then release it. They were happy to do just that.
I would recommend this company and especially Captain Juan and his crew. I would book them again.
