Sport Fishing in the Mayan Riviera

Published on February 15, 2016 by admin

The stunning blue-green waters of the Caribbean Sea draw millions of travelers every year to the Riviera Maya… either for relaxing on its beautiful beaches, scuba diving and snorkelling the second-largest reef in the world, or for some fantastic sport fishing!

These waters are home to over 500 species of fish and offer a wonderful fishing experience; whether you’re just starting to get into deep-sea fishing or you’re a serious sport fisher.

In the world of deep-sea fishing, the Mayan Riviera is very well-known as “THE #1 SAILFISH HOTSPOT” among many fishing enthusiasts.

All along the Yucatan peninsula, the ocean floor has a unique topography. The shallow white sandy sea bottom quickly drops off and the water plunges to nearly 3,000 feet deep along the channel. This brings monster game fish practically to shore!

Huge sailfish, both blue and white marlin, wahoo and dorado (aka dolphin fish or mahi-mahi), are among some of the prize catches to be found. There have been tales of marlin runs that have reached 500-pounders being caught within a half mile of shore!

There are many options for fishing charters to choose from right out of Playa del Carmen. Most have experienced English-speaking captains and crew. Many of these guys were born and raised in Quintana Roo and have fished these waters all their lives.

The best months for fishing and overall conditions are March, April, May, and June. Hurry up and get out on the water while the sun is shining and the fish are biting!
