Twin Hooks—Galileo

(73) In high demand!
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, and have been running charters for many years. I studied gastronomy and finished my college studies but my heart drew me back to the ocean. I just love fishing and thank God I have the opportunity to do this every day. This is more than just a job, it's my passion!

The fishing was great. Captain and deck hand were fun and energetic. They cooked up our catch after and it was the best fish I have ever had.

Did the half day fishing charter with Capt. Abraham and deckmate Javier.  Both were super helpful during the excursion and got as many lines as possible into the water to improve our chances of catching fish.  However, what truly made this excursion 5 star was that Abraham is not only a boat captain but also a chef. Our fish were cleaned and prepared for us at the dockside restaurant with Abraham presenting us with four different fish entrees plus the best fish ceviche any of us had ever had.

My boyfriend and I went on a half day trip to celebrate my birthday, and had an amazing time! The boat is very well kept, and was stocked with everything we needed. Abraham and Javier were friendly and knowledgeable. The best part was eating out catch within hours of catching it at Pelicano’s! It was delicious. Highly recommend!!
