Fishing Al Gusto

As their name suggests, Fishing Al Gusto is your key to Playa Del Carmen deep sea fishing as you like it. Whichever aquatic experience you have in mind for your next Mexican adventure, the crew will make it happen. After all, it’s your trip and you will have your day, your way!

Just as you depart from Coco Beach where the boat is moored, you soon will be ready to wet your line and start the action. The crew have mastered the local waters and always follow the bite. Some of the most common catches include Sailfish and Marlin (catch and release), as well as Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Kingfish, Tuna, Red Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and even Swordfish. Whatever patrols the nearshore waters and the reefs can easily become your next catch of the day!

If trolling, jigging, light tackle, and handling action is not your thing, you could take a dip in those beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea. Or even better, you could split your time on the water between fishing and snorkeling!

When it comes down to a great fishing and snorkeling platform, the 23’ “Xaman Ek” is the perfect match. She is a spacious boat with a lot of shade and comfortable fishing space for up to four guests, plus the crew and fish.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, and a cleaning and filleting service of whatever you want to keep. You won’t have to worry about purchasing a license either, the captain got you covered. The crew will provide you with ice, water, and light refreshments.
