Description

Galileo is a 31ft Shamrocks boat, with a maximum capacity of 5 guests on board. The boat is equipped with all the fishing gear needed for your fishing adventure, complete with a conventional range of navigational and fishing technology, including GPS, radio and fish finder. The vessel also features a single fighting chair as well as a bathroom on board.

The Galileo’s team top priority is to provide their guests with an exciting day of fishing. That’s why all trips include soft drinks, bottled water, beers and fishing licenses at no additional charge.

Galileo’s Captain has been fishing the productive waterways of Mexico all of his life. Although he holds a degree in gastronomy, in the end, his passion for fishing was just too strong to ignore. Since the fleet is comprised of 3 boats, there is a chance that you will be fishing with either Captain Roberto Vargas or Captain Abel Zetina, both seasoned captains and with the same degree of experience and knowledge as the fleet’s owner, Captain Abraham.

Captain Abraham Otero’s restaurant and marina Pelicanos is just 15 minutes south of Cancun. The added advantage of booking a trip with Galileo is that the crew will cook your catch for free in Abraham’s restaurant. On Full Day trips, lunch is also included in the package.

You will be trolling for Marlin (both Blue and White), Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado and more. Bottom fishing for Groupers and Snappers can be organized as well.

The boat departs from marina and restaurant Pelicanos in Puerto Morelos. Marina Pelicanos is about a half-hour drive south from Cancun International Airport.

I've been fishing all my life with my father and my family. I studied gastronomy and finished my university. But I just love fishing and thank God I have the opportunity to do this, more than work - it's my passion.

To start with the crew could not have made the trip better.  Within minutes of the hooks hitting the water we were catching fish.  Within the first 15 minutes we had brought in 3 barracuda.  One was over 3 feet long.  Within the hour we added a couple of amberjack and a tuna. 

The crew was over the top helpful and courteous.  They were well organized and worked extremely hard so we could have the best experience possible.

When we got back to shore the captain took some of the fish we had caught and prepared it for us in the restaurant.  It was cooked to perfection and prepared 5 different ways.

There is no question we will be using their service again!

The owner and staff were excellent, we caught the first fish within minutes of casting the first line.
When bites were slow we moved and changed baits until we caught another fish.
Both captain and first mate worked very hard to assure us good results.
Our 25 pound red snapper was fileted and cooked 5 different ways for us back at the restaurant at no charge.

The fishing experience was great!  Abraham gave us more than our allotted time with no extra charge. He thoroughly enjoyed the fishing along with us as did the first mate. We caught lots of fish although it would have been better with a few more larger fish. The crew cleaned the fish each day and offered to cook them for us.  Safety was front and center. Overall great trip!

One suggestion for improvement would be better instruction on fishing methods up front.
