Follow our reports in the social media below, Riviera maya, Cancun, Isla Mujeres.

  • The Mayan Riviera it’s a stretch of coast and hotels starting from the south of Cancun all the way to Tulum. Crossing through several towns and villages with the most amazing beaches along the way and hundred of five star resorts. (From the Moon palace resort, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Xcaret and the Mayan Ruins of Tulum)

  • The fishing along the riviera maya is short lived, The season starts way after Cancun and Isla mujeres, the water is very deep. In some areas you can hit over a 1000’ of water less than a 1/2 mile away from shore. 

    You can catch pelagic species, mahi-mahi, tuna, white or blue marlin. That is during April to July, The area lacks bottom structures, therefore the fish doesn’t hold and they keep on moving, The rest of the year there is very little action, small barrucadas and small fish.

    The fishery along the riviera maya is an all or nothing type of fishing trip, Either you catch a nice big fish or spend hours and hours and have one or two strikes during the day. 

    That is the reason everyone travels from the Riviera to Cancun or Isla Mujeres a top sailfish destination in the world.

  • Cancun and isla mujeres have great fishing all year round, from bottom fishing, for groupers and snapper near shore and offshore fishing for big game fishing. Our area is most active during late fall and winter, amberjacks will start migrating heavily into the are attracting sharks October and November, wahoo, black fin tuna. After the first cold fronts we can expect schools of kingfish and some African pompanos. Late December to the end of April the large schools of bait will attract the largest congregation of sailfish in one small area. After that is tournament season, April, May, June and July the pelagic species are in, white and blue marlin, Mahi Mahi or Dorado, Black fin and big eye tuna are the most common species around our area. All year round species, Barracuda, Snapper, Amberjack,  Grouper, Yellow tails Snappers, Triggerfish, and Hippo Jack or Jack crevale, The most versatile fishery all year roud.

    I recommend the entire crew and the 8hr trip. The captain put us on the fish and would relocate if it was not hot! Hector knows the hot spots no doubt! The crew worked their tails off to make the experience awesome! Very grateful and thankful for all they do! I really wanted a Dorado and the captain said it’s off season but he would do his best. Man did he ever, caught myself a trophy 57” lunker Dorado! May be an image of standing, mahi-mahi and outdoors

    Finally caught a Trophy Sailfish 🏆! This was a first class trip which couldn’t have been made possible without our awesome Captain and his Mates! I highly recommend these guys to anyone who wants to experience fishing in Cancun without that “touristy” feel. Thank you Alex for everything. See you next year!

    When I come back to Cancun, I'm coming back during a bigger sportfish season and I'm sending my wife to get her nails done and a massage while I fish! :)

    I will definitely be using these guys again. They are truly fishing experts and their experience can be seen. Thank you guys for some amazing memories!
