Galileo - 31’ Shamrocks

Pelicanos Restaurant & Marina
Cancún QR, Mexico

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.

Great crew and great captain. Did some trolling, unfortunately no marlin or sailfish but low season and worth the try, reef on three spots, got a nice bonita and a red snapper.

Due to low catch the captain suggested to fish one hour longer that paid for, great service.

We had some rough seas which was unlucky so we decided to go back because people we’re sick. But thats all in the game!

Well for starters when I booked I thought we were booking for a Cancun charter trip and after paying the initial deposit I learned from the captain that he was 30 minutes south of Cancun which ended up adding an extra 70$ in cab fare. We were told to be there at 730 and we got there at 745. The boat and crew were ready shortly after but after 1 hour and 15 minutes with no captain and not being able to get in touch with him the crew agreed to take us out anyways. The waves were huge and my wife lasted about 45 minutes before having to turn around and head in. The crew was nice and made us feel welcome. The boat was okay. The fumes were horrible and there was a crack on the edge that flexed wide enough to actually pinch my skin when we crested over a wave. We had gear in the water for probably 60 minutes total without a bite and the only thing that took the bait were the birds overhead. But hey it called fishing not catching. Wouldn’t use again though. Pretty disappointed with the experience. $570 for a sprite and a small water.

Both Capt. Abraham and Javier the mate worked hard for us. We caught 8 Barricuda and 2 large Red Snapper. Abraham cooked the Snapper 4 different ways for our lunch. All were delicious.
