sport fishing in the caribbean sea

Want to explore Playa Del Carmen and its fishing opportunities? Say no more! Cooperativa Turística Del Mar is there for you. Capt. Javier will show you around and take you where the fish are biting! Plus, he’ll make sure you have fun doing it.

Bottom fishing, trolling, fly fishing, jigging, popping, spearfishing, spinning - name it, and Captain Javier will help you do it! Apart from a variety of angling approaches, Captain Javier will share his tips and tricks with you on how to target species like Barracuda, Sailfish, Marlin, Amberjack, Little Tunny, and Golden Dorado.

Their 26’ Ocean pro boat can fit a maximum of 7 anglers. The boat is fitted with an ice box and wireless trolling motor. So, you’ll easily reach your fish and then safely store it in the ice box. And, of course, you’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip.

You’ll find free drinks on the boat for your convenience, but you’re always welcome to pack your own drinks and snacks should you want to. All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. Please keep in mind you’ll need to get a fishing license before the start of the trip.

Capt. Javier runs trips together with his first mate, who’s there to help you with whatever you may need. Tips are always appreciated for a job well done. They’re very good with kids, so feel free to bring your entire family on this adventure!

Book your trip now and hit the water with Cooperativa Turística Del Mar.
