Cancún Offshore Fishing Overview

Looking for a real taste of what makes the Yucatan so unique? Situated right at the tip of the peninsula and across the way from the Western edge of Cuba, Cancún is a prime spot to capture all of the fish heading into and out of the Gulf of Mexico.

The blue water near Cancún is enough to make your friends jealous, but the deep-sea action you'll have is what will make them mad. You can start fishing within feet of the marina and productive waters are only a few miles from shore. Whether you want to go trolling for giant pelagic species or deep drop for huge snapper, Cancun can make it happen.

Offshore trolling from Cancun provides you with the opportunity to catch marlin, sailfish, wahoo, mahi-mahi, and many more. These fish can grow into monsters weighing hundreds of pounds. Trolling usually consists of 5 or more rods with lures and or live bait dragged through the water behind the boat. These fish can reach incredible speeds so when they hit a line they set the hook and it's up to you to fight them which may take several hours if it's giant.

If trolling isn't your style then deep dropping for snapper, grouper, and plenty of other deep-dwelling species might be perfect for you. These fish like to hunt baitfish around deep structures and the best way to target them is to drop bait down to where they are feeding. Artificial lures work well but live bait is more popular. With various snapper and grouper species growing to incredible sizes this is a fishing trip that will blow you away.
