The Yucatan Peninsula offers unbeatable vacation options
and the fishing waters are famous worldwide! Peak fishing
season runs from early March through early July when Sailfish
and Marlin are migrating through the canal. During these months
the Puerto Aventuras marina fills up with yachts from several
states and countries with one thing in mind- SAILFISH!
What this means is multiple shots at sailfish per day (15
- 20 is not at all unusual.)
Every year there are double digit grand slams (a sailfish,
white and blue marlin in one day) and sometimes there are
double grand slams (two slams in one day) and super grand
slams (add a swordfish.) Other abundant fish are: wahoo,
dorado, tuna, kingfish, and barracuda. Best of all - we set
our baits right as we exit the marina! No travel time. We have
caught sails so close we have released them in the marina.
|Capt. Rick's Sportsfishing has many boats available
from a 53' Hatteras to a 23' Sea Craft. The captains are English
speaking and have at least 10 years experience fishing these grounds.
All the fishing is done trolling dead baits using 20 to 30 lb.
Shimano or Penn gear. Many of our boats also have a fighting chair..
Two of our Captains are also experts at fly fishing, in which
case you must provide your own gear. Of course, all billfish are
||Puerto Aventuras has been featured in many saltwater
fishing publications- Marlin, Saltwater Sportsman, Sportsfishing
as well as several features on ESPN. What most people do not know
is that the off season fishing can also be fantastic! A FEATURE
SHOW ON ESPN presented Capt. Rick' s solely on Wahoo fishing in
December. That day, we caught 8 wahoo and two tuna including four
wahoo on at the same time. From August through February, we average
8 Sailfish in a half day trip.
So you do not want to catch, but you do want to enjoy the
Caribbean? We offer numerous pleasure trips to several desolate
beaches and snorkel areas. Yucatan happens to have the second
longest coral reef in the world!!! We can also combine trips
and tailor it to your likes - snorkel, beaches and fishing.
