Twin Hooks—Galileo

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!

We actually went out on the Don Quino for a full day, while our smaller group went out on the Galileo for a half day. The Galileo group caught a couple small mahi, some barracuda, and trigger fish. The Don Quino group caught 12 total fish, no monsters but three good sized barracuda, two red snapper, one yellow snapper, a good sized blue runner, and several trigger fish. The captain and crew worked hard to find fish. It was a hot day but we all had a great time. Eating our catch at Pelicanos after the trip was amazing. Abel did a masterful job of preparing the fish and several members of our two groups went back for a meal the following day. I would definitely recommend Twin Hooks for any trip in the future and hope I can return some day.

Two of my buddies and I decided we would enjoy a fishing trip while we were all on vacation in Riviera Maya with our families.  Being the only one of us who had done this sort of fishing before, I did some research and found Twin Hooks and Abraham on Fishingbooker.com.  Twin Hooks was reasonably priced for an eight hour trip, but what really sold me on it was the additional benefit of having our freshly caught fish prepared for us and our families at the end of the trip…for free!  Wow!
Booking the trip was pretty painless on fishingbooker.com.  Abraham was very good about responding to my questions before we arrived in Mexico and kept me apprised of the status of our trip when poor weather threatened.  Thankfully, the weather finally cooperated and our trip went on as originally planned.
We started bright and early at 7am on the day of our trip and Abraham and his mates, Javier and Eddie, were ready to go.  The Galileo was stocked with plenty of beer, soft drinks, water, snacks, and croissant sandwiches for lunch.  We wanted to catch some food for our meal and then do some billfishing.
Abraham obviously knows his stuff and got us on fish quickly.  We caught snapper, triggerfish, blue runners, barracuda, and jack crevalle.  Plenty of fish to feed all of our family members and have meat left over.  Though we did troll for billfish for quite a while, we didn’t have any luck, but that’s how fishing goes.  Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don’t.  I’m pretty sure the bad weather that didn’t break until the night before our trip had something to do with the lack of billfish.  Had we not done the billfishing, we could’ve caught a ridiculous number of fish, but, as I said, we caught plenty of fish and had a great time!
At the end of the trip we were ready for our meal at Pelicano’s Restaurant in Puerto Morelos.  Abraham and crew cleaned and filleted the fish (not a bone to be found) and Abraham, now our chef, prepared our fish for us five different ways, including a stunning barracuda ceviche!  Each dish was absolutely amazing and we ate way more than we probably should have.  My oldest daughter doesn’t even eat fish, but even she enjoyed the meal.  I have to say it was, by far, the most delicious and satisfying meal we had during our trip to Mexico. 
Overall, Abraham was fantastic, the fishing trip was fun and relaxing, the meal was superior (Pelicano’s makes a great margarita, too!), and it was a fantastic day.  Thank you Abraham, Javier, Eddie, and the staff at Pelicano’s! 
We will definitely book another trip with Twin Hooks and Abraham!
