Looking for some excellent angling action in a secluded, tropical locale? Leave the busy beaches of nearby Cancun behind and come discover what fishing in Puerto Morelos has to offer! Located at the northern point of Riviera Maya, this town provides direct access to mangrove swamp flats, a bustling coral reef system, and deep fish-filled waters just a few miles from shore. What are you waiting for?
 
If it’s deep sea fishing action you’re after, you won’t have to venture far from shore. Trophy-sized Sailfish can be hooked only a few miles out, and you’ll also encounter Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Swordfish, and Wahoo. In the deep waters around the island of Cozumel, there’s Tuna varieties, including Yellowfin and Blackfin. It’s also the most promising place to hook a Billfish Grand Slam of White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and Swordfish.
 
Puerto Morelos isn’t just about the open ocean, though! The Great Mesoamerican Reef is located just a short ride from the beach, and here you’ll come face-to-gills with Cubera Snapper, Red and Black Grouper, Kingfish, Barracuda, and Wahoo. Inshore, Puerto Morelos is home to a mangrove swamp, and these shallow waters are brimming with Bonefish, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Snook, and Tarpon. Fly fishing on these flats is especially common.
 
Puerto Morelos’ charter captains offer inshore, nearshore, and offshore trips running anywhere from 4–8 hours. Most recommend that you opt for a full day trip to get the most out of your adventure. Newbies can mix up their angling action with some swimming or snorkeling, whereas experienced anglers can target that trophy Billfish or test their skills on the fly.
 

Rules & Regulations

You’ll need a valid Mexico fishing license to cast a line in Puerto Morelos. Hop aboard a local charter vessel, and this will usually be covered for you!

Based on 27946 reviews by FishingBooker anglers

January

Pick an offshore charter to take you trolling for Kingfish, Wahoo, and Barracuda or whip out the fly gear and go after Bonefish and Snook in the mangroves.

February

February is prime time for targeting Wahoo, Kingfish, and Barracuda. You can also hit the reefs and bottom fish for Red and Black Grouper, as well as delicious Red Snapper.

March

March marks the beginning of Billfish season, so it’s a great time to book a full day trip and head offshore. Half day inshore trips will still reap lots of benefits, with likely catches of Permit, Bonefish, and Snook.

April

April in Puerto Morelos is the time when many anglers head offshore to add a Billfish Grand Slam to their resume – Sailfish, Swordfish, and White and Blue Marlin all in one day. Do you have it what it takes?

May

Things really start sizzling offshore in May. You can still try and get that Billfish Grand Slam or mix it up and troll for Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna. 

June

No matter where you go, the fishing is hot! Offshore, everything is biting from Sailfish and Marlin to Mahi Mahi and Tuna. Alternatively, go fly fishing in the flats for Bonefish, Jack, Permit, and Snook.

July

July might be the best time to whip out the light tackle and hit the flats for some inshore action. Catch Permit, Tarpon, and Bonefish and complete an Inshore Grand Slam, and add Snook to the list for a Super Grand Slam.

August

Billfishing starts to slow down but Mahi Mahi fishing is still hot. Throw some Wahoo, Barracuda, and Kingfish in the mix and you got yourself a tough offshore battle.

September

September brings with it heavier rainfall than usual but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. More rain means less-crowded beaches! Try fishing from the surf to land a Bonefish, Permit, or Jack Crevalle.

October

Billfish season comes to a halt but bottom fishing starts to warm up. Hop on a charter that will take you to the nearshore reefs to target Red Snapper, Black and Red Grouper, Triggerfish, and Amberjack.

November

The rainy season comes to an end which means more tourists will start planning their trips in November. Be sure to book your fishing trip well enough in advance to secure your spot on a Puerto Morelos fishing charter!

December

Why not try something new and plan a Christmas fishing trip with the family this year? Take the kids on a snorkeling adventure and explore the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the world’s second-largest reef system!

Hire a boat because no matter how many fish you catch it's an enjoyable and fun adventure being on the water in Mexico. I also think it's nice to go with a small group so there's plenty of action for everyone and the personal attention is worth it.

Be prepared for a hot day on the water. We should have jumped in the water at some point but were too busy fishing to mention it to the captain.

Do some research before your trip. If you book through the hotel it doesn't guarantee the charter will be good. Some are just a long boat ride depending on where they leave from. Do Google searches and trust others ratings.

We had everything we needed and had a blast fishing. Caught a wahoo, barracuda, and kingfish, as well as several yellowtail snapper, rockfish. Crew did an excellent job communicating and provided us with beer and water. They even turned out barracuda into the best ceviche I've ever had! 10/10 would recommend booking these guys. We will be back!

Late fall is not a great time to catch fish off the coast of Cancun. But Alex and Alfredo pushed hard to get on the fish. After one barracuda and several close misses we were finally on the fish. Caught a wide variety of fish to include a very nice grouper. Thanks much!

Weather was not cooperating on our trip but the crew did a great job keeping us comfortable and lines in the water. Waves were pretty big but the boat and captain handled it well. Crew was very attentive and made us feel safe. We were blessed with a good haul that day so a great time overall.

We had an incredible day aboard the Solete. We fished, we went to wonderful beaches, we swam in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, and even saw many turtles. The captain and his deal was a 10. I absolutely recommend Solete and his crew if you want to have a different excursion and experience in the Caribbean Sea.

Such a fun trip. Chose the 8 hour trip and and had no preferences. Ended up catching 3 barracuda’s within the first hour and then after that. We did some Bottom fishing and We’re catching them as fast as we could send out line in. Great crew and did everything they could to help us catch lots of Fish.

The boat left the marina at 8:15 a.m., after a brief explanation. We only did trolling, since we decided to do it this way, Captain Josue told us that we could do bottom fishing too, but we were interesting on Bill Fish. When we got the sailfish, the 1st Mate helped us and explained to us how to do it. Both the captain and the 1st Mate, they are very knowledgeable. Definitely the best fishing trip. Definitely highly recommended.

We had an amazing experience fishing with this crew and vessel today. I also learned a lot about how to fish, hooking sardines as bait and how to reel in more effectively. The crew would have let me fillet too but I was pretty tired and happy to let them do it. Highlight!!! Catching a barracuda. Absolutely amazing. Thanks so much for the expertise and equipment and a magical day at Porto Morelos.
