Captain Rick’s - 46’ Finatik

Puerto Aventuras Marina
Puerto Aventuras QR, Mexico

When you are fishing the waters of Maya Riviera, it’s hard to not wish you could stay forever. It’s home to various types of exciting fish species, which bite all year-round. On a day out with Captain Rick’s Sportfishing, there is always something in season and biting.

This family-friendly company operates a large fleet of great sportfishing vessels. The Finatik is one of their boats – a 46’ Bertram that can comfortably accommodate a large party. Up to 12 will find ample fishing and seating space on board. The Finatik is equipped with modern electronics, technologies, and professional accessories that are needed to put you on fish.

Spend your day trolling for Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and beautiful Mahi Mahi. As well as that, you can also bottom fish for Grouper and Snapper. All the necessary fishing gear, bait, and tackle will be available for you to use. All licenses and fees are also included in the price, along with soft drinks, water, and a cooler full of ice. If you book a full-day trip, the crew will offer lunch.

All trips are child-friendly so don’t hesitate to bring your whole family with you. Your skill level and expertise don’t matter – even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hand before, there is a trip for you!
