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.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Cancún

Take Dramamine 30 minutes prior to leaving. We got seasick during our trip which was no fault on the crew. They were very understanding and helpful. We still ended up catching a lot of fish and they made fillets for us to take back to our resort where the chef cooked it! Very cool experience. For what we paid, the boat was probably very reasonable, but in the future we might like a little roomier boat. Our crew was awesome!

Take some Dramamine if you think you may possibly get seasick. Even on a tame day like we experienced today we were rolling in 6-10ft swells all day which can take its toll on you. Also wear a sun shirt and wear plenty of sunscreen!

Morning trips have better odds at catching fish, and you should book 6 hours or more if you're targeting marlin and sail fish.

The water in the gulf has been very rough this week and there have been storms so that kept us from catching lots more. We still caught 4 and had an amazing time!

Be patient and let the crew do their job getting you on fish. Took us quite a while but once the caption put us on fish it was a steady bite!

Seas are pretty rough in February. Recommend you take Dramamine. If you want to catch some fish for dinner, make sure the captain stops at a reef for snapper, grouper, etc.

Wasn’t really sure if we’d catch much being out of the better season for fishing. Was quite surprised to catch so many today. A variety of fish reeled-in in a 6 hour trip.

Be prepared to have the fishing experience of a lifetime with these guys. If you've never been deep sea fishing, I would highly recommend eating some Gravol About an hour before your trip. The swells can get pretty big and you are out there for quite a while so be prepared. Also, be prepared to have a sore arm from reeling in so many fish!

Fishing isn't always catching but I appreciate a crew that works very hard. We had a great haul but even if we hadn't I'd have been pleased with the effort.
