Its perfect placement along the Caribbean Coastline puts you in easy reach of some of the best deep-sea fishing on the planet, and an abundance of big, beautiful fish are just waiting to jump right on your hook. To increase your chances of making the catch of a lifetime, you'll want to book a tour with one of these excellent fishing charter companies that specialize in finding the best spots to catch fish in the waters around Tulum.

Akumal Dive Shop

It makes perfect sense that the local diving experts would know exactly where the fish hang out, and you'll not be disappointed with a day of fishing with the Akumal Dive Shop. This three-hour adventure is available for as little as one person or up to six individuals for the perfect experience for your family or group. Safety comes first, and you can relax knowing that the crew is professional and knowledgeable about the waters surrounding Tulum.

You'll have a choice of two well-kept, fully equipped fishing boats, the 29-foot La Colorada and the 25-foot La Negrita, and the crew is always happy to clean your catch for you so that any of the local restaurants may prepare it to your specifications at the end of your fishing trip. If you decide that three hours is not long enough to fish, then you can always request a longer trip. These are just a few of the fish that you may expect to catch depending on the season.Fishing Reel Close-up
