If you’re itching for the adventure of a lifetime set in the most beautiful scenery, head to Puerto Aventuras and find Captain Rick’s ‘Big Fish.’ Captain Rick’s Sportfishing Center specializes in big game fishing and providing their customers with the best sportfishing action that the Riviera Maya can offer.
Jump aboard their impressive 48’ Big Fish, a luxury Viking cruiser able to accommodate up to 12 anglers fishing in full comfort and style. The vessel is packed to the gills with the professional navigational and fishfinding gear that will help you land your trophy without wasting time on searching for it. It also has everything you can think of when it comes to safety gear, including 20 life jackets!
Big Fish comes with a restroom, shower, kitchen, beds, and is fully air-conditioned. Outriggers and downriggers will extend your reach while fishing. A fighting chair will also be there at your disposal. Snorkeling equipment is available upon prior request.
Fishing in the area is superb year round and you’ll have an experienced, English speaking captain guiding your way. You’ll have the opportunity to go trolling for Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi just a couple of minutes away from Puerto Aventuras marina. If you prefer bottom fishing, the captain will show you the best ways to land those award-winning Snapper and Grouper.
Captain Rick’s will cover top-notch fishing gear and licenses and the first mate will even clean your hard earned catch (tips are appreciated). Please note that all Billfish has to be released back into the water. Soft drinks and water are free for the taking. No age limits – bring your little ones on an adventure they’ll never forget.

We caught 1 nice Marlin and 2 Mahi Mahi in 6 hours. We wanted beer but the marina doesn’t sell until 9;00 am. Get beer before you go and bring Toilet paper for the bathroom

We the best 4 hours one could ask for. We caught our first Sail in the 1st 15 minutes, followed by 5 Dorado, with one being 4 feet at the fork, and our last Sail in the last 10 minutes. At the end we took 3 kilos of Dorado to the restaurant across the way and they cooked it 3 different ways for lunch. It was a supurlative experience & the crew worked very hard and was fantastic.

Overall great experience. This was a family trip with a group of 8 including several first-timers…and there was plenty of room onboard. Boat was in good shape and in a very nice marina. The captain & crew were great, and worked hard to put us on fish including working the weed lines well. Everyone caught a fish, which was all I could ask for…and we took home the catch for dinner. Glenna took great care of us up front handling questions & transportation and at check-in. We’ll be back.
