Fishing Cancún Charters

Fishing Cancun Charters welcomes you aboard to enjoy a range of activities among the beautiful waters around Isla Mujeres. Spend the day fishing for top table and game species, from tasty Snapper and Grouper to monster Marlin and Sailfish, with the extra option to hit remote beaches or grab some food at one of many great local restaurants.

Whatever you choose to do on your trip, there is no better place to do it than aboard Fishing Cancun Charters’ 35’ Bertram sportfishing boat. Completely restored in 2013, the vessel boasts an air-conditioned interior to keep you cool even in the heat of the Mexican summer and an enclosed toilet for extra comfort on long offshore adventures.

The boat is equipped with the latest and greatest in fishing tech and equipment. Outriggers and downriggers will maximize your spread and let you target multiple species at once. A livewell full of fresh bait will tempt the fish in, and tuna tubes will let you work up the food chain to the very biggest fish out there. She also has a fighting chair for once you hook one of those blue water monsters.

Charters last anywhere from 4 to 12 hours, so you will always find the perfect trip to suit your schedule. Once on board, you are in charge, and what you do is up to you. Spend the whole day fishing, or break up your trip between the offshore battles and relaxing beach breaks, stopping at a restaurant to cook the morning’s catch before heading out again with your strength restored.

This really is the perfect trip: a great boat, a seasoned crew, and complete control over how you spend your day. So climb aboard and get ready for a dream day on the water, whatever that means to you!

I love the ocean. I became a fisherman by chance via a friend and was instantly hooked on the sport. We have won various tournaments to date including 1st place in the 2013 Playa del Mar fishing tournament and the 2016 national sportfishing tournament, which gave us the chance to compete internationally in Portugal in 2017.

September 13, 2021
We went out to fish with this family and this time of the year normally it's the most difficult for finding big fish because sailfish is not on season, but as we always do we try very hard on all the ways to find the big fish and after a day of trying on every way and moving all around we manage to catch an amazing sailfish! We ended the day swimming in Isla Mujeres and having a great time!
