Cancun Deep Sea Fishing Information.
"All Inclusive" Cancun Deep Sea Fishing Charters frequently asked questions.
Questions about reservations and cancellations:
What is your cancellation policy?
You can cancel any trip up to 24 hours before departure and only pay a 5% administrative processing fee. If the trip is canceled because the port is closed by the port captain due to weather then you will receive a 100% refund.
When I reserve do I get the boat I choose?
Yes. That is why we put the pictures of the boats and a list of equipment on the website. So you can choose and reserve what you want. Of course the further in advance you make your reservation the better the chance you will get the boat you want.
What if the boat I want is not available?
We will call you or email you and recommend a comparable boat before we charge your credit card and make your reservation.
Is the pricing on the website correct?
Yes. The prices are accurate and complete meaning that there are no additional charges. At the end of the trip a tip is optional but generally a tip of 10% - 15% of the charter depending on how successful your crew was for you.
I send in a reservation with my credit card and what happens?
Once you send a reservation we confirm that there is the boat available for the day(s) you want. Then we charge your card the entire amount shown on the website. We then put a confirmation number on a coupon or voucher and send it to you in an email. You print it and that is your paid receipt for the tour. You present the coupon at check in.
Should I send in my credit card with the reservation?
Yes because you have a much better chance of getting the boat you want the less time that goes by before the departure. If there is no space available we will not charge your credit card but advise when the boat is available closest to the date you want or recommend an alternate boat of similar specifications. If you send in a reservation form without a credit card number inquiring about availability then we respond, and you respond, simply more time passes giving more time to fill up. Again once you are ready to reserve it is best to send your reservation with a credit card. Please remember no reservation is made until we have payment via your credit card or by other means.
Questions about the deep sea fishing marina and departure:
Where is the dock or marina?
When you reserve we will send you the directions of where to go from your hotel.
Questions about the deep sea fishing boats:
How many people can go on the boat?
It depends on the boat. You will notice above the price of each boat the maximum number of passengers that that craft will accommodate.
Do you have English speaking captains?
Our captains and crew speak at least “fishing English.” The language will not be a problem.
Do the boats have a bathroom on board?
Yes, all boats have a bathroom on board.
Do I need to bring anything?
As far as fishing tackle is concerned you do not need to bring anything. We provide all tackle needed.
We do recommend you bring a hat and sunglasses and sun block.
Food is not provided, so you may want to bring a lunch or snacks.
Will I get seasick?
Seasickness depends on the individual and the conditions of the sea the day you go fishing. We recommend that if you do not know if you get seasick that you take a commercial motion sickness medication or use the wrist bands or patches that go behind the ear. Why take a chance?
Questions about Cancun Deep Sea Fishing:
What can we expect to catch?
What you will catch depends on the time of year you come fishing.
To see the various species that you may catch click here to see a calendar and click here for recent catches in our fish pix of the day section.
Do you do trolling or bottom fishing?
When you charter the boat you decide. We normally recommend a combination of the two. So if trolling is slow we pull up on the reef and let you go for groupers and snappers. However the decision is yours.
We want to catch bill fish. What do you recommend?
- First look at the fishing calendar and come when the bill fish are here.
- Second, take an 8 hour charter. You enhance your chances.
- Third, tell the captain at check in that your main interest is billfish.
What kind of bait do you use?
We use ballyhoo, mullet, and lures. We will vary the baits depending on the fish available at the particular time of year you go.
Do you catch and release?
Game fish which are not edible (sailfish, and marlin) are released. If you want to mount a fish them, then those fish are brought in so we can send them off to be mounted.
I want to mount my catch. Can I do that?
Yes the staff at the dock will arrange everything for you so that you can mount your fish and have it shipped.
What are the best fish to take to eat?
The best fish for your dinner will be Dorado (Mahi Mahi,) Wahoo, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper. Any of these will make for an unforgettable dinner.
