Good Life Fishing welcomes you to the beautiful city of Cancun and offers the perfect fishing experience in the Caribbean waters. Join Captain Hugo who’s been fishing these waters for more than 10 years and knows the perfect spots for every species you can target in these waters.

You will have the best amenities on the 58’ Viking, which is one of the best fishing machines there can be in the world. She provides a capacity of 12 guests, having three bedrooms and three complete bathrooms with shower and two queen beds plus two single beds. There is air conditioning in all rooms with a complete kitchen that has a microwave, two freezers, two refrigerators, one beverage refrigerator, a TV and a professional audio system inside and outside.

In Cancun, there are different seasons where each one has a bigger chance to catch certain species. For example, in November-February, go north of Isla Mujeres to catch some sardines for bait to get Sailfish. Also, between those months, go bottom fishing to get some big 25-50 pound Amberjacks. April-June are the best months to target Blue and White Marlin in the deep waters of the Caribbean, where you can also meet with some big Blackfin Tunas and Mahi Mahi around 25 pounds. Wahoo are mostly from November-January and there’s a special trip to Arrowsmith, a very famous spot for targeting big Wahoos. Between all those seasons, you can also do bottom fishing to get some different species like Amberjack, Snapper, Jacks, and many more that inhabit the Caribbean Sea.

All fishing equipment is included in the price and you’ll be provided with the new Penn, Avet fishing Reels and Biscayne Rods, the best lures, and a professional fighting chair to get the best fishing experience.

Good Life Fishing welcomes you to an adventure you’ll never forget. Just pick the date!
