Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Cozumel

According to customer reviews, Aquadventures - 30' Grand Slam, Montze Fishing And Snorkel Charters, and Kay Kib Fishing Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Cozumel, Quintana Roo. Full list of top fishing charters in Cozumel.

The average price for a private 4 hour Cozumel fishing trip is $426, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $592 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Aquadventures - 30' Grand Slam, Montze Fishing And Snorkel Charters, and Kay Kib Fishing Charters all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Cozumel.

The most popular fish species you can target are Great Barracuda, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Blue Marlin. Top fishing techniques include Trolling, Bottom Fishing, and Deep Sea Fishing. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The island of Cozumel is one of the most famous fishing locations this side of Mexico – and for good reason, too! It’s surrounded by a variety of impressively diverse waterways. There’s the majestic coral reef, deep offshore waters, and plenty of winding inshore flats and lagoons. Whatever type of adventure you’re looking for, hop aboard a Cozumel fishing charter and you’ll find it!
 
There’s always something biting here, but if it’s Billfish or a big game bonanza you’re after, an offshore angling adventure during the summer months is especially productive. Thanks to this island’s proximity to seriously deep waters, you’ll be able to start dropping your lines around half an hour from shore. Expect to encounter Mackerel and Tuna around the reefs, as well as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Marlin in deeper waters.
 
If you’re more of an inshore fanatic, however, Cozumel still has plenty of exciting action to offer. There are flats located within walking distance from the center of town, as well as northern fish-filled lagoons. You’ll have the chance to target a variety of prized game fish, including Permit, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Bonefish, Jack Crevalle, and even the mighty “Silver King” (Tarpon). 
 
Cozumel’s many charter captains offer trips that run anywhere from 4–8 hours. You’ll be able to hit deep offshore waters on a shorter trip, but anglers looking for a brag-worthy catch should opt for a full day. The same goes for inshore fishing. Although newbies and families can get acquainted with the flats and lagoons on a half day trip, a full day is the best option for anglers wanting to hook a whole host of famous fish.
 

Rules & Regulations

You’ll need a valid Mexico fishing license to cast a line here, and the vast majority of Cozumel fishing charters will provide this for you.

January

If you're thinking of Ffshing in Cozumel in January, lucky you! Escape the new year blues and hit the water for some fast trolling action. Wahoo and Kingfish are waiting around the reefs.

February

February is a slow month in Cozumel, by which we mean there is "only" one Billfish around in big numbers, the Sailfish. Mardis Gras also usually falls in February, and Carnaval is something you can't miss!

March
Fishing in Cozumel during March is plentiful no matter what kind of angling action you prefer. Bonefish, Snook, and Permit crowd the flats, with a fair few Tarpon too. Offshore you have Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Marlin.
April

This is when the offshore fishing season really gets going! White Marlin are hitting their peak, Sailfish are biting hard, and Blue Marlin start to show up in big numbers towards the end of the month.

May

The Rodeo de Lanchas Mexicanas bring anglers from across the country and beyond in May, with big prizes and even bigger fish! Do you have what it takes to be crowned king or queen of the rodeo?

June

If you are around in June it would be rude to ignore the festival of San Pedro and San Pablo. Two of Mexico's most important saints are honored every year with floats, rides, music, and dancing. 

July

Offshore you have Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. Inshore, there's Snook, Permit, Tarpon, and Bonefish. If you can stand the heat you'll be well-rewarded during this time of year!

August

The Billfish action starts to drop off and the reefs start to pick up. You have a chance of catching pretty much everything in August, from Mahi Mahi, to Wahoo, to tasty Snapper and Grouper, and plenty more.

September

Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Barracuda swarm the deep-water reefs from September onwards. The shallows are packed with great game fish like Bonefish and Permit.

October

The reefs really hit their stride in October, making for great food fishing. Offshore, large King and Sierra Mackerel start showing up, as well as the first of the Wahoo.

November

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is one of Mexico's most important celebrations, and certainly its most iconic. Things are far from dead on the water, with massive Wahoo smoking reels offshore.

December

Fishing in Cozumel in December is just about the best way to spend the holiday season. Target huge Wahoo, Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper, or hit the shallows for some serious Bonefishing.

Taxi’s to the marina will try to charge high fees for transportation. Make sure to set a price before departure or arrange with charter. Also, make sure to communicate your expectations to the captain before the trip. Make sure there are no hidden fees. You can keep your catch and ask resort chef to prepare a meal for you. Bring sunscreen and take some Dramamine 1hrs before your trip to avoid sea sickness.

If your debating between the 4 hour or 6 hour trip I would fully recommend doing the full 6 hour trip. We caught half of our fish in the last 2 hours of the trip. Gives the crew the best chance to get you on the fish.

We went out for a six hour trip but the fishing was really slow. It was just one of those days. Captain and mate were awesome, they tried every trick in the book to raise a fish but it didn’t happen. I’m an experienced off shore fisherman so although it was disappointing it was still a fun day with a really nice couple of guys. I would run with this crew again and I’m sure they will catch ‘em up. Highly recommended

Perfecto! Will use this guide service again as they were earnest at all times working to put us on the fish. We had plenty of drinks, & places to rest while the crew kept a watchful eye out for the Mahi. They pointed out dolphins to us which are always a pleasure to watch. GREAT TRIP!

Crew was very nice and helpful. They knew where to go for best chance to catch Mahi, and we reeled in two. My downside was that we spent most of the five-six hours trolling. Next time we will ask to go where we can cast and try our luck that way instead of sitting waiting for a fish to bite one of the trolling lines. At least we will be busy doing something. The crew was very good.

We fished in mid June. Victor and Augusta were great. Fishing was slow but the effort was incredible. Constantly changing out baits and looking for signs of fish. The coolers were stocked with plenty of food beer water soda and juices. We caught a couple of small mahi-mahi that were cleaned for us. We split the meat with the crew. The fresh fish was delicious the next few day. Thanks for the memories

We had an awesome trip. They accommodated our requests from the start, including picking us up from our resort dock. They shared stories and explained techniques, all while having the lines in the water in 10 minutes of picking us up. They provided snacks and beverages and helped us catch our dinner that night! Would definitely charter a boat with them again.

A storm was coming in and we had to cut our trip a couple of hours early. Many of the fishing boats that went out that day came back w no fish. Thanks to the persistence of our crew, we came home with 5 mahi-mahi. Augusto, Miguel and Victor worked their tails off to get us on fish and keep us safe. Definitely a five out of five experience. We wii definitely be back to fish with these guys again.
