Best Fishing in Cozumel

If you're looking for the best fishing in Cozumel, look no further, Aquadventures has it! With years of experience, we know where to go to have the best chance of reeling in the trophy! Make a friendly wager with your buddies to make it even more fun! Don’t worry if you aren’t staying on the island. We can arrange a VIP pick up in the Riviera Maya that will include your ferry tickets and transportation to the pier once you’ve arrived to the island.

So why is Cozumel one of the BEST places to go fishing?

  1. Our experienced, professional crew has been fishing the waters of Cozumel since they were kids and they will even clean your catch for you. You ask your hotel or a local restaurant to prepare it for you. Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

  2. This is one of the best ways to check out the waters of the Caribbean Sea around the stunning coastline of Cozumel.

  3. You can combine your private fishing charter with an incredible snorkel experience. You’ll enjoy cruising the waters and then seeing up close what lies below the surface.

  4. After your fishing trip you can check out all the fun things to do on the island. Go shopping, enjoy a refreshing drink on a gorgeous beach, make all your friends jealous with your epic photos.

  5. We offer combo packages in the case that you want to do more than one day of fishing or combine it with some scuba diving. Even if you are a beginner diver we can accommodate you.

You can arrange a private fishing charter with us to take you deepsea/sportfishing, bottom/reef fishing, lagoon/flats fishing, and we can even comfortably accommodate kids! So if you have kids and/or prefer to stay in calm waters close to the shore, we can troll or reef fish with small gear for jacks, needlefish, barracuda, or even snapper. For us, the priority is that you have a fun and safe experience that can be enjoyed by every member of your family.

We pride ourselves on having the best captain and crew who will work hard to get you on the fish and make sure that you are well taken care of while on board. They are very experienced and have been fishing the area since they were kids. Our boats can accommodate 1 to.... well how many people want to go! Let us know how many people you have and we will do our very best to accommodate your group! Our boats are rigged with Penn, Shimano, and/or Okuma fishing gear, as well as downriggers and outriggers that allow us to have 5 lines in the water plus teasers. The charter includes fishing gear & bait, snorkel equipment, bottled water, sodas, beer, fruit, guacamole & chips, the 6 or 8-hour trips include sandwiches.

We will depart from a centrally located pier or we can pick you up near your hotel, depending on the location. Within just a few minutes from leaving shore, we will drop lines behind the boat and we’ll troll natural bait (ballyhoo) and/or artificial baits looking for marlin, sailfish, mahi-mahi, wahoo, tuna, barracuda, mackerel, and other species that swim in the Yucatan Channel depending on the seasons. Check the chart below for the best season to catch your favorite fish.

You can plan a 4, 6, or 8-hour fishing charter in Cozumel, but why not combine it with some amazing snorkeling after? Because Cozumel lies along the second largest Barrier Reef on the planet, coming to the island and not taking advantage of the underwater world would be a shame! Have you ever heard of El Cielo (The Sky)? This area near the south side of the island is known for being the place where the starfish hang out, hence the name “The Sky”. If you plan a 6 or 8-hour fishing charter in Cozumel, you can rise early to catch your dinner (yes the crew will clean it for you), snorkel some of the most epic spots in the world, and finally, finish the day o n the beach. Sounds like a perfect day right!?

Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or just looking for something new to do in Cozumel we can take you!
