Top Fishing Charters in Puerto Aventuras


Anglers from far and wide visit Riviera Maya for a Puerto Aventuras fishing adventure, and it’s easy to see why! With a name that literally translates to “Port of Adventures,” the sheer variety of angling excursions on offer in this location is spectacular. Whether you want to head offshore for an epic battle, fly fish the flats, or plumb the depths of the reefs, you’ll find a trip that’s perfect for you. 
 
You don’t have to travel far to reach the playgrounds of some big game fish. Hit the 12 miles of water located between Puerto Aventuras’s coastline and Cozumel island for Sailfish, White and Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna species, and Wahoo. Looking to land that coveted “Billfish Grand Slam” of Marlin, Swordfish, and Sailfish? Opt for an 8-hour adventure. Newbies and families can try out deep sea fishing on a 4-hour trip.
 
If it’s tasty table fare you’re after, head southwest of nearby Cozumel Island to explore Palancar Reef. You’ll discover prized species such as Red and Black Grouper, Cubera Snapper, and Amberjack, as well as King Mackerel and Barracuda, and you can mix up your angling with a spot of snorkeling too. Most trips run between 4–8 hours, with 6 hours being the “sweet spot.” 
 
Finally, if you’re looking to challenge yourself using light tackle or on the fly, there’s excellent flats fishing, too. Bonefish, Snook, Permit, Jack Crevalle, and Tarpon can all be hooked here. Trips start from 4 hours, and you can choose to spend anywhere up to a full day on the water.
 

Rules & Regulations

As is the case throughout Riviera Maya, the majority of charter captains will make sure your fishing license is covered for you. Some species in this area are subject to regulations, and casting a line alongside a local captain will ensure you’re fishing within the law.
 

January

January is an excellent time to go trolling for Kingfish, Wahoo, and Barracuda. If you plan on staying closer to shore, now is the time to go fly fishing for Bonefish on the flats.

February

Tell your captain to get the outriggers ready, as February produces solid numbers of Wahoo, Kingfish, Barracuda, and Swordfish. You can also head out to Cozumel Island and jig for Amberjack or bottom fish for Grouper.

March

Sailfish fishing really starta to pick up in April but you can still target them towards late March. Grab your fly gear and check out some flats fishing for Bonefish, Permit, Jack Crevalle, and Snook in the shallows.

April

April is a great month to aim for a "Billfish Grand Slam" and hook Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, and Swordfish all in one day. Mahi fishing starts to pick up, tool, so pick an offshore charter that will take you trolling.

May

May is great for targeting Billfish, as well as other pelagic species such as Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna. If you’re feeling competitive, take a short boat ride to Cozumel and check out the Rodeo de Lanchas Mexicanas. 

June

June’s got plenty in store for everyone. Hit the flats for a fun day of fly fishing or head off the coast and deep drop for Tuna and Marlin. The possibilities are endless!

July

Inshore fishing is solid throughout the whole year, but July might be one of the strongest months. Pull out your light tackle and attempt an Inshore Grand Sam of Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit.

August

The number of Billfish starts to taper off in August but offshore fishing is still solid. You can target King Mackerel, Barracuda, and Wahoo, as well as various Tuna species, such as Albacore.

September

September is Puerto Aventuras’ rainiest month, so keep this in mind when planning your trip. This means there are fewer tourists on the beaches than usual, so surf fishing is especially favorable this time of year. 

October

Billfishing practically comes to an end, but no need to worry! October is all about the reef fishing. Hit the Palancar Reef and get ready to bottom fish for Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, and other exciting game fish.

November

Puerto Aventuras and surrounding villages host their Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations. This is an awesome opportunity for tourists to experience something other than fishing!

December

December is one of the driest months in Puerto Aventuras and therefore, one of the most crowded times of year. Be sure to plan your trip ahead of time to secure a spot at one of the local hotels in the area.

Fishing at any time is always a 50/50 proposition. You can't go out and expect to land a specific species just because the charts say they are 'in season.'

Find a captain who's been on those waters for decades and you'll find any fish that are there. Would have loved to have gotten into the sailfish species but the fish aren't going to change their migration for my schedule.
