Looking for something that’ll set your angling adventure apart from the rest? How about exploring deep blue waters with ancient Mayan ruins visible in the distance? Make your way to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and hop aboard one of the numerous Tulum fishing charters on offer.
 
Tulum is located right in the heart of Riviera Maya, which sits on the edge of an underwater canyon. This means that world-famous big game fish such as Sailfish, Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo travel extremely close to shore It’s also possible to hook tasty bottom dwellers without traveling far, too, with Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, King Mackerel, and Barracuda all on offer.
 
This town also boasts some of the best flats fishing along the Yucatan Peninsula’s coastline. Head south towards Punta Allen, and you’ll be greeted by the plentiful Ascension Bay. This waterway is brimming with inshore game fish, including Snook, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Bonefish, and Tarpon. Local anglers recommend using light tackle to get the most out of your battle with these creatures, and casting a line on the fly is also an option for angling enthusiasts.
 
You’ll find a whole variety of trips on offer in Tulum, from 4-hour family-friendly adventures to 9-hour offshore extravaganzas. Although it’s possible to reach productive inshore, nearshore, or offshore fishing grounds on a shorter trip, most captains recommend opting for a full day to get the most out of your adventure. After all, what could be better than a day out on the water, hooking world-famous fish under the shining Mexican sun?
 

Rules & Regulations

You’ll need a valid Mexico fishing license in order to cast a line in these waters. Hop aboard a Tulum fishing charter, and it’s very common for your captain to cover this for you.
