Twin Hooks—Don Quino

Cancun is one of Riviera Maya’s most prolific fisheries. You can choose between trolling for Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo, Dorado, Sailfish and more, or opt for more family-friendly bottom fishing for Groupers, Snappers, and other species. As the Don Quino is part of a 3-boat fleet, your captain will either be Roberto Vargas, or Abel or Abraham Zetina. Each is a veteran captain with more than a decade of fishing experience in these waters.

You’ll have all you need aboard the 38ft Bertram offshore sportfishing boat. With a capacity of 10 guests on board, she comes equipped with a fishing chair and brand new Penn International 30lbs and 50lbs rods. The vessel has a bathroom on board, and comes outfitted with all the fishing gear your group will need. GPS, radio, as well as fishfinder comprise the boat’s navigational amenities.

The team is committed to providing a great day of fishing you won’t forget anytime soon. All trips include soft drinks, water, beers as well as fishing licenses for all occupants of the boat, at no additional cost. Captain Zetina’s restaurant and marina Pelicanos is only 15 minutes south of Cancun and the crew will gladly cook your catch for free at their restaurant. That is, if you can stomach any more food – All full day trips aboard also include lunch!

The Don Quino departs from Marina and restaurant Pelicanos in Puerto Morelos - about 30-minute drive south from Cancun International Airport, so you’re in a prime location to get on the water and start having fun.
