Spearfishing in Cancún

You’ve heard all about the crystal clear waters of Cancun, so why not make the most of them and get in? Grab a speargun and hop into these pristine waters to test your skills against some prized, delicious creatures. Spearfishing in Cancun is the perfect way to get to know the Caribbean’s rich waters, all the while landing yourself something tasty as a reward for dinner.

What to Expect

Head out from Cancun to the stunning island of Isla Mujeres and get your fish on in style. The productive reefs are home to a range of dazzling, tropical fish, so get ready to be wowed just at the sight of them. 
 
There are several restrictions on spearfishing, so make sure to go with a trusted guide, who’ll take you to the best spearing grounds. One restriction is the ban on spearing with scuba gear, so you’ll be freediving with snorkeling equipment as you target monster fish. 
 
Trips last from as little as two hours to as long as a couple of days You’ll have the chance to focus on spearing, or can mix it up with some other fishing techniques to fill the boat. Head out past Isla Mujeres to the deep offshore waters of the Caribbean and you’ll come face-to-face with some of the ocean’s biggest creatures. 

What fish can I catch?

With such a range of fish on offer, you’ll want to make sure you target those that you can take back to shore to eat. In the deep waters, that means plenty of Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and monster Barracuda. These predators are incredibly quick, so you’d better be on your A-game to land them right away. 
 
Beginners may be better suited to the waters around the reefs. Not only will you come up against some tamer fish, but you’ll also have the benefit of being closer to the surface as you target Groupers, Cobia, Snappers, and many more. 

When to Go

Cancun is a popular tourist destination year-round, thanks to its tropical climate – and its spearfishing opportunities mirror this. Come throughout the year and take advantage of the warm water to get your fish on. May through December can see some tropical storms, so you may only be able to take a shorter trip during this time. 

How to Prepare

Most Cancun spearfishing guides are experts in their field and will provide the equipment needed to get you hunting the Caribbean. Some will even provide you with your fishing license, so there’s nothing left to do but come aboard, sit back, and enjoy a thrilling day out. 
 
Get in touch with your captain beforehand to check if they offer the full service and, more likely than not, they’ll even possess the skills to take beginners too. Check, too, if they provide food and drinks, or if you need to bring your own, and away you go.
 
You’ll never forget the experience of a Cancun fishing charter. Get booking now to make your holiday come alive!

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.

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.
