Cozumel Fishing

 

Whether you are an experienced angler, a novice, or just tagging along for the trip, you will love fishing in Cozumel! It’s true that Cozumel is a famous spot for scuba diving because it’s located right next to the second largest coral reef in the world. This beautiful coral reef is also conducive to great fishing conditions, making Cozumel fishing an experience you cannot afford to miss! The most convenient thing about Cozumel fishing is how quickly you can get to the fishing grounds where the fish are abundant. A lot of time is saved, which is otherwise wasted when the fishing grounds are miles away. The reef acts as a natural barrier, and very quickly the shoreline drops to hundreds of feet, creating the perfect habitat for large game fish. The weather conditions are excellent for fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, Dolphin Fish, Sailfish, and Marlin to thrive in the warm waters. The summer and spring months are the best seasons for catching the larger game fish. But there is not a bad season for fishing in Cozumel, so even when it is winter in Mexico there are plenty of fish to be caught that are very tasty! There are many boats to choose from with excellent captains that will make sure you have an excellent fishing trip. Cozumel is also on one of the best spots in the world for snorkeling, so we recommend when you reserve your boat, let us know if you wish to do some snorkeling as part of your trip. You don’t want to miss it!
