Fishing in Cancun

Blvd Kukulcan Km 5

Cancun Hotel Zone

(998) 849 7508

You can light tackle or deep-sea fishing in Cancun and along the Riviera Maya year round. If you enjoy fly fishing or light tackle fishing you can visit the flatlands, 35 minutes north of Cancun or two hours south at Boca Paila. You can enjoy a “grand slam” at both places capturing and releasing bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, jack, crevalle and barracuda. 

Big game fishing is a popular sport and many villages have an annual fishing tournament in the spring and summer months. From March until August the waters are filled with Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo, Bonito, Spanish mackerel, Mahi-Mahi and Barracuda. Local Barracudas, Amberjacks, Groupers, Spanish Mackerels and Rubie Bass are in the waters year round. 

Fishing boats come with a captain, mate, bait and gear, and drinks. Rates vary from each marina starting at $70 per hour, $350 per day. Contact the marinas listed for further information.
