Deep Sea Fishing in Cancún

Ranked among Saltwater Sportsman’s top 12 billfishing destinations in the world, big game fishing in Cancún needs no introduction. Head offshore from the Riviera Maya and the Caribbean opens up a whole other dimension. A Cancún Deep Sea fishing charter will make all your angling dreams come true, so why not book one?
 
When we say Billfish, we mean serious species. Charters are known to land up to 100 Sailfish in a day, along with White and Blue Marlin who stay in the waters for six months of the year. As if that wasn’t good enough, there’s a year-round population of Tuna – Bluefin, Blackfin, Yellowfin, Albacore, and Skipjack.
 
Wanting more? Mahi Mahi and Wahoo are a worthy supporting cast, along with Barracuda. Meanwhile, head to the serious deep spots, and you could try deep dropping for such elusive species as Swordfish and deepwater Grouper. 
 
To get to these open waters, you’ll need at least a full day, with some Cancún deep sea fishing charters offering multiple days on the water. These trips are suited to more experienced anglers, and they usually come with all the gear provided. Some charters offer drinks and snacks, but not all. Just make sure to clear that up, along with the catch policy, before hopping aboard.

Rules and Regulations

Deep sea fishing regulations in Mexico are more lax than in the US, meaning you can even take Billfish home. You can only catch one per day, though, and they count as five of your overall limit of 10 fish. Check whether you need a fishing license before you go and get ready for a fishing trip to remember.

If you are heading out with someone who is prone to sea sickness, make sure they take some Gravol or something similar to reduce sea sickness.

Wouldn’t suggest if you are known to get motion sickness. I was fine but it’s a hour ride back so it’s not the best if you don’t feel well

I 100% recommend it to all ages. They were very professional and helpful about what we should do with our catch. We ate ceviche and fish tacos from oylur barracuda catch at the onsite restaurant. My only advice is is specify what you want cooked. We had 32 tacos and 2 bowls of ceviche for 3 people. My family had a great time!!!!

Check the weather, it is sometimes rougher than it looks. You will still catch fish inshore though and it’s fun either way.

The weather is beautiful, but the seas can be choppy. Bring plenty of sunscreen and motion sickness preventatives.

Bottom fishing is probably best chance as lots of billfish are about a month or so earlier. Still possible to get some but not as much. I hear January is best time for sails in this area.
