World Class Riviera Maya Sportfishing

World-Class Riviera Maya Sport Fishing

If you're an angler, you'll love the year-round opportunities for sport fishing at El Cid in Riviera Maya. The Mayan Riviera reputation is prominent in the world of deep-sea fishing, and is known as “One of The Sailfish Hot Spots of the World” among many deep-sea fishing enthusiasts. It is in these waters off the Yucatan where big game fish love to lurk. Fresh runs of blue, white Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Barracuda, and yellowfin Tuna tempt anglers all year around. No matter what time of the season you decide to embark on a Riviera Maya sport fishing trip, it will be an excursion you won't forget for a long time to come.

There's nothing on earth like sinking the barb into a really World Class Sailfish, and Puerto Morelos is just the place to experience Explosive Fishing!  Due to the unique topography, the entire area is virtually in front of the edge of the second largest coral reef in the world. The sandy ocean floor plunges dramatically down into deep blue darkness, bringing the hunting grounds for game fish practically right up to the shore.

Sports fishermen also praise the southern beaches of this area for their abundance of Dorado, Wahoo, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Red Snapper, Grouper, Spanish Makarel and other minor species. There are tales of the seasonal Marlin runs, where "once you see that bill jumping out of the water, you're hooked." Our boats can reach prime Riviera Maya sportfishing territory and have gear running in less than five minutes only half a mile from the shore.

Look at the extensive selection of boating options with Aries Fleet.
