Mahache Tours

Located just off Mexico’s Caribbean coast, Isla Mujeres is known for its sandy beaches and fantastic climate. Mahache Tours knows exactly what that also means: great fishing! Taking you out to the deep Caribbean Sea, you’ll hunt a range of beautiful, exotic fish, while enjoying the peace and tranquility of the open waters. Captain Fausto Cauich is an award-winning charter operator, comfortable in running trips for experienced and first-time anglers alike.

Set off from the island’s main port aboard a spacious 29’ Mahatha center console. With plenty of shade, you’ll have no trouble in cooling off from the blistering Mexican heat. Sun junkies are welcome too, with a designated space at the front to catch some rays. Powered by twin 60 HP Yamaha four-stroke engines, you’ll speed off to the open seas in no time. All the safety equipment is fitted on board, so just sit back and enjoy the ride.

These waters are home to some of the biggest and best game fish in the world. Their colors will dazzle and by snorkeling, you can get up close to them for a view you’ll never forget! Marlin, Sailfish, Snappers, and Mahi Mahi are just a few of the fantastic fish you’ll get to try reeling in. All of them are sure to provide a tough test from the first bite! Shimano rods and reels will be provided, along with natural bait and circle hooks, so as not to harm the fish.

What better way to explore the Caribbean than by getting on it? Capt. Fausto and his crew are natives to the island and have participated in prestigious angling tournaments at home and abroad. With over 25 years of experience, they’ve catered to tourists from around the world and provide charters in English and Spanish. With plenty of beer and water on board, you’re in for a fun-filled day, and you’ll never get dehydrated! Hop aboard with Mahache Tours to make the most of your holiday.
