The tour

The adventure begins at the Whale Shark pier, from there we will set off to sea.

On this tour you will be taken to the best fishing spots in the area, during the tour our captain and guide will share the ancient techniques of bottom fishing (twine line, no rods) teaching you how to catch small and medium-sized fish such as sea bass, grouper, snapp, blonde, chac chi, mojarra and more. Have your catch prepared as delicious ceviche right on the boat and/or you can take your fish at the end of the tour to be cooked according to your preference.

As we sail you will experience close encounters with the wonderful Holbox marine life with dolphin surprise appearances at any time.

Upon our return enjoy the sea breeze and beautiful coastal landscapes.

Remember that a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.
