Chac Chi Marina – Cucaracha De Mar

Chac Chi Marina offers some of the best fishing out of Cancun, with a huge range of charters to choose from. Situated on the tip of Southeastern Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is perfectly positioned for some awesome offshore fishing, with a staggering array of species migrating past the area over the course of the year.

The vessel you will be spending the day on is the Cucaracha de Mar – a 34’ Phoenix cruiser with room aboard for up to 8 guests. Fully overhauled in 2012, it is powered by twin 350 HP Caterpillar engines. There’s also a comfortable interior complete with a shower, head, and bed, as well as a spacious flybridge on which to relax in style between bites.

Chac Chi Marina prides itself on providing nothing but the best Penn International fishing gear, and employs the most skilled and experienced crews to make sure your time aboard is exactly what you are hoping for! The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you, so you’ll be able to take the fish straight to the table upon your return.

There’s a variety of trips you can choose from, and these waters are brimming with life. Depending on your preference, your day aboard the Cucaracha de Mar can be spent either bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper, or trolling for Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo.

All trips come with drinks and licenses. Feel free to bring some food to stay energized throughout the day, as well as some sun protection. A dock charge of $10 per person is not included in the price, but is payable upon arrival on the day.

Book Chac Chi Marina and enjoy a great day of fishing in the productive waters around Cancun!
