Don Quino - 38’ Bertram

Pelicanos Restaurant & Marina
Cancún QR, Mexico

Don Quino is a 38ft Bertram, with a maximum capacity of 10 guests on board, equipped with two fishing chairs and brand new Penn International 30lbs and 50lbs rods. The vessel is air conditioned with a bathroom on board, and comes outfitted with all the fishing gear your group will need. GPS, radio, as well as fish finder comprise the boat’s navigational amenities.

The Don Quino team is committed to providing you with a great day of fishing you won’t soon forget. For that reason, all trips include soft drinks, water, beers as well as fishing licenses for all occupants of the boat, at no additional cost.

Since Don Quino is part of a 3-boat strong charter fleet, your captain will either be Roberto Vargas, Abel or Abraham Zetina, all of them veteran captains with more than a decade of fishing experience in these waters.

Captain Zetina’s restaurant and marina Pelicanos is only 15 minutes south of Cancun - following all trips aboard Don Quino, the crew will gladly cook your catch for free at their restaurant. Full Day trips aboard Don Quino also include lunch.

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.

Don Quino departs from Marina and restaurant Pelicanos in Puerto Morelos - about 30 minute 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.

This was a great fishing trip.  Captain Manuel and mate Jorge worked hard to get us on fish.  We caught more than enough fish to have a great dinner back at the restaurant.  We had a great family get together in Cancun and this fishing trip was the highlight of our whole trip. 

We will definantely book this trip again when we come back to Mexico.  The fish they cooked for us at the Pelicanos Restaurant was wonderful.  Fish was cooked 5 different ways and all were very good.  If you are looking to go on a Deep Sea fishing adventure, this is the one to go on.

I highly recommend the Don Quino Guppi ( the Capt ) worked hard to run to various spots to put us on the fish. Many Capt won’t use the fuel to find good spots. Our Mate George constantly was changing rigs to put us at the right depth to find the fish and was very quick to rebait our lines when we caught a fish.  Having fished in many areas of the world I thought the Don Quino held up to the best.  We will Charter them again
