Is Cancun a destination for fishing?

Cancun is a year-round vacation destination, so it receives visitors from all over the world. Besides that, Cancun has a great diversity of marine species and in the area we can find different fish. Some remain in their habitat throughout the year, while others migrate or areseasonal. So when you are planning your trip, you can always get a great catch like the great fishermen and if you are an avid fisherman you can go after some of the great fish that we can find in the waters of the Caribbean Sea, this type of search is commonly known as sport fishing or the big game of fishing. The most popular species found in the area are sailfish and marlin. Sailfish migrate to Cancun during the winter months and their stay in the area is until July, so these months would be perfect to plan your Cancun Fishing Tour.

The fish tag program is worldwide and the data collected is used for scientific purposes. Fish migration patterns are somewhat confusing, so to catch, tag, name, andtrack your fish it can be through Aquaworld and Gray’s.

Capture and Release.

This is our preferred method. Deep fishing in Cancun offers great abundance in different species and we would like to continue to maintain this. The effects of overfishing is a problem in some areas of the world, so we encourage our visitors to catch and release their fish. You can take a photo, weigh it, measure it and release it, so these little ones can return to the place where they belong.

Choose a full day or a half day.

Fishing in the Riviera Maya may be less successful compared to Cancun. So don’t forget that Aquaworld offers you two alternatives: noon or morning and afternoon on the charter. Of course the best time to go fishing is at 7:00 am, early to arrive and have the best places. But if you are one of those who prefer to stay and opt for the south.
