Cancún, Mexico

Background
My co Captain / Mate and I met 27 years ago and have been addicted to fishing since we can remember. We are living our lifelong passion and working in Cancun as Fishings Guides. We bring 50 years of combined experience of many types of fishing all over the world. We are addicted to fishing and dedicated to putting you on some fish of a lifetime! We love what we do and want to get you on some big fish!
Techniques
Here in Cancun we prefer to deep drop on the bottom for huge grouper and snapper! You're almost guaranteed to catch some fish you've never seen before! Trolling is also amazing for the seasonal sailfish, Mahi, marlin, wahoo and Black Fin Tuna. We won't be satisfied with your trip until we put you on some fish! We are committed to hauling in some serious meat!

Another successful trip.  Got grouper and lion fish.  Captain Travis found the fish and helped us learn how to use the equipment.  It was a lot of fun and we are already planning our next trip.  I will book with Captain Travis again.

Cannot express how much we enjoyed this day.  Landed the fish of a lifetime, a huge Blue Marlin.  Took over 2 hours and did it on a spinning real/rod set-up.  The mate did a masterful job driving while my son fought the fish with Captain Travis coaching him all the way.  We are already talking about our next trip with Captain Travis and Don Chingon Charters.

So glad you got to catch his fish of a lifetime! It was a pleasure fishing with y’all!

This was a very fun experience for my wife and I. We expected to catch just a few fish and we caught so many! The captain and co-captain were more than willing to do anything to catch some fish. The only downside to my experience is that it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I was expecting a more traditional fishing experience where the guest could hook the fish and reel it in. Instead, the crew would hook the fish and pass off the rod and reel. But that’s understandable in an area with strong current. All in all, I had a great time and it’s definitely great bang for your buck.
