During your visit to the Tulum area, why not try your hand at some fishing.
Local Fishing Options:
Deep Sea Fishing Charters
This area is well known for it's deep sea fishing. There is a sizable billfish population in season and Puerto Aventuras is rated consistently in the top 20 sites worldwide. Some good Marlin and Sailfish are caught throughout the year, the fish pictured above was caught mid-march for instance, but the peak time for all billfish is April to July. Many Sailfish are caught as well as significant numbers of White and Blue Marlin. Dorado are quite numerous in the summer months which makes for a lot of fun trips.
In the winter months Wahoo and Kingfish show up which helps to keep things interesting.
Of course Barracuda are caught year round and the crew will stop to do a little bottom fishing if the trolling isn't working or if the clients want to give it a try.

Flats Fishing Charters
The high quality of flats fishing available in the Tulum area is a well kept secret. The size and quantity of Bonefish that can be caught is impressive and there are world record size Permit in the area. We regularly get sightings by snorkelers of fish in the three foot range. Such fish are extremely hard to land, I have known a number of very experienced fishermen to get spooled by huge fish here, so come equipped!
