SportfishingCancun - Mamacita

SportfishingCancun invites you to spend a day on the crystal clear waters of Cancun, Mexico with Captain Romeo Pelayo. This charter is operated by a friendly crew led by Captain Romeo who says their company is dedicated to customer service and motivated at the same time to make a pleasant trip for everyone on board.

Fishing takes place aboard a 26-foot Grady White Offshore sport fisher originally built in 1996 and restored in 2017. On this boat, you will find two swivel chairs, a cushioned bench, a half enclosed cabin with plenty of shade, a bed, and a toilet for your convenience.  There is an icebox for you catch, a livewell for the bait, outriggers, and downriggers for trolling, snorkeling equipment, and all the safety features needed.

SportfishingCancun offers half and full trips which first take you bait fishing so you can get a feel for the equipment and learn how to cast and reel in. Once you’ve caught the bait, you ride out to the near fishing grounds where fish such as Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Triggerfish, Silvery Grunt, Bonito, and Yellowtail Snapper await. This is a half day 5-hour trip.

Captain Romeo can also take you offshore, on an 8-hour trip, where big fish like Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Giant Trevally, Yellowtail Amberjack, and Almaco Jack can be found.

SportfishingCancun includes rods, reels, tackle, and lures on all trips. Once the trip is over, you can have a fish cleaning and filleting service if you want to take you fish home or to a local restaurant for dinner. Captain Romeo has a first mate who accompanies you on offshore trips and helps you with reeling in your fish.

All that’s up to you is to look through the offered trips, pick one to your liking and start counting down the days until your next angling adventure with SportfishingCancun!
