La Chulada Tours

A whole new world awaits offshore from Playa Del Carmen. Hop aboard La Chulada and leave the noisy beach behind. You’ll be at one with nature as you sail offshore in search of some huge fish. Get your fish on and catch a delicious treat or a prized trophy, before cooling off with a dip in the sea. These waters changed Captain Carlos Taylor’s life. He came to do some scuba diving, and stayed as a sportfishing fanatic. He strives to show you the best of both worlds.

Bring your loved ones aboard the 25’ Lancha center console. Powered by a 60 HP Yamaha engine, you’ll smoothly drift away. She’s a spacious vessel, built for up to 8 guests. She comes fitted with all the necessary safety and navigational gear, as well as outriggers and a livewell to enhance your fishing experience. With an ice box containing plenty of drinks, including beer, you’re on your way to a memorable day already.

You’ll be trolling the water within 5 minutes of leaving the beach. With a mixture of live bait and artificial lures, you’ll target stunning Sailfish and Marlin, as well as delicious Tuna and Mahi Mahi, among others. These fish are huge and are sure to put up a fight, so get ready for a struggle when you hear those reels screech. You’ll need to cool off after the battle, so get the snorkeling gear on and witness nature’s beauty first-hand.

You won’t believe your eyes when you’re underwater. Dazzling fish of all colors, radiant sunshine glistening through the water, and the sheer size of some of the creatures. All day long you can take advantage of the onboard drinks, but the best time will be at sunset as you head back to shore. A cold beer in hand after a productive day out. What could be better? La Chulada is the charter company to show you this little spot of paradise.

Born into a family of commercial fishermen, Captain Carlos has over 20 years of fishing experience under his belt. He moved to Mexico for the incredible scuba diving opportunities. While still offering incredible scuba diving as part of his trips, swimming among the fish saw him fall in love with sportfishing. Fishing has become his passion, and he just loves the fresh air as well as the chance to catch fresh meat. He promises a personalized experience, as there's nothing better than having customers leave with a smile on their face and return the next time, as keen as the first time.
