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 were on the Why Not? With Captain Freddy and first mate Miguel for 8 hour trip. Trolling the first half was slow and no bites but that's fishing. They tried changing lures many times but no luck so we made the call to switch to bottom fishing and started to fill the cooler with fish. We had a great time and still caught plenty of fish. The crew was great and would recommend them. Thanks again guys

We were on a cruise and reached out the day before we arrived at port. Mario was great at communicating and allowed us to book our fishing trip while in port. We fished from 9:30-1:30pm. My son and I had a blast and Mario and Dario were both so awesome! Highly recommend and will rebook when we are back in Cozumel!

Mario is an amazing local captain with tons of knowledge about the ocean and the area. We trolled around and he taught us signs to look for while fishing deep water. He even took the extra effort to take us snorkelling with sea turtles and around paradise reef. 100% recommend! We will be coming back and seeing Mario again.

Mario is a great guy. Very knowledgeable. Our trip got cut should due to my lady getting a little sea sick. Weather wasn't great but we still caught a couple tuna. Hooked a nice one on our way out but it came off... on my next trip I will bring my son and not have to leave early and will definitely rebook with Mario.

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

Captain Mario took my son and I reef fishing and I can’t say enough about his professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge of where to find fish. We caught plenty, enough to fill out plates for dinner and then some. Mario made my son and I feel welcome and was everything a fishing guide should be. Highly recommend.

Captain Mario knows where the fish are! He has a clean and comfortable boat and a friendly crew. Mario speaks great english and is very personable. We caught a variety fish that he cleaned and sent with us, and he even dropped us off at our hotel pier. Thanks, Mario! Hotel Westin cooked our catch for lunch. It doesn’t get any fresher!

The captain was very knowledgeable, prompt in responding, professional, and very accommodating. We inquired about a 50/50 snorkel/fishing trip. At the last minute decided to go to the grass beds on the south end in Cozumel to see the turtles and fish the latter half of the day. No problem! We snorkeled for about 45 min and saw 4 turtles and then fished for a solid 2 hours and caught many snapper and grouper. We brought fish home to cook that night. I would highly recommend this fishing charter!
