These guys are great! Very very Professional. I took 2 trips. Guides are very knowledgeable. Nice boats. Good equipment. Top of the line fly rods and reels(Tibor and Sage). Plenty of water and sodas provided. I was going to go a 3rd day but I got a stomach bug. They refunded my payment. You know it’s a good business when a guide brags about the owner and how he is there with them early each morning.

I fly - fished for Tarpon and Snook in Nicupte Lagoon with Mau as my guide on March 3, 2022. You would have difficulty finding a better guide than Mau. He was very friendly and accommodating with a good sense of humor. He is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help if needed or asked. He provided me with dozens of opportunities for fish throughout the day. He obviously knows the lagoon very well. Martin, the owner, met me first thing in the morning at the marina to introduce himself and to be sure I had everything for a good trip. I had scheduled two trips with Martin prior to my arrival in Cancun. Immediately after my 1st trip an issue with another of the group I was traveling with required that I cancel my 2nd trip. Martin could not have been better to work with. He offered several options to salvage my trip but I still needed to cancel. He was very gracious about it and refunded my trip fees with no hassles. This is the second time I have used Martin's company to fish and have been very pleased with the service and guide each time. I would highly recommend using Cancun Fly Fishing for your trip. I will definitely use them when I get back there next time.

This was a great experience from the booking to the follow up after. Martin was very responsive and returned my call minutes after leaving him a voice mail.

I go fly fishing every vacation I get and this trip was as good as they get!

They are so fairly priced I did a double take at the 6 hour rate. Very affordable for what it is.

The office, boat, website are top notch. The Red-fisher appeared to be brand new!

On to the guide…Jose is one of the most personable guides I have been with. Fly fishing can be frustrating and Jose was able to coach me and help me improve all day. He was able to carry on great conversation while keeping us on fish all day! It felt like fishing with an old friend. Truly a great experience. I could not believe it was his first day on the job!!

Don’t hesitate to book your trip with them. I only regret not booking a second day while im here. I will be back

WE recently filmed an episode on inshore fishing in the area with Cancun Tarpon Fishing and Captain Mau. The whole staff was a breeze to work with and got us on some solid fish and we had a blast fishing and running around the mangroves with them targeting Tarpon, Snook, and more! Defiantly will be adding them to our yearly visit to the area! Boats are nice and well kept as well as the tackle. We would recommend this to any angler in the Cancun area.

My son and I had two great days fishing w Cancun Tarpon Fishing. Martin and Anette were extremely responsive/thorough answering my questions and helping with logistics before our trip. They run a first class operation on the water as well. Our guide excelled at determining what type of fishing experience we were looking for. He was happy to cater to fly and spin fishing, sight fish for tarpon or snook, or blind cast to other species when my son simply wanted to catch fish. If you are looking to flats fish while in Cancun this is a wonderful option.

I found Cancun Light Tackle Fly Fish through application Fishing Booker. I have read a tons of reviews regarding diffrent tour operatora before I have decided to go with them for my first fishing tour in Mexico. It was very diffrent from what I used to in Sweden and Poland. However, Martin and Jose made that day one of the greatest fishing trip in my life. Boat was great and there is a plenty room to fish for 2 people. Equipment is also on high level (for example Penn’s reels). Jose had a good variety of soft baits, but what is more important He is the best guide I have ever met. He showed me several spots and in every of them I managed to catch some fishes like: Jacks, Ladyfish, Snook…..and Tarpon. It was a crazy day with hard conditions (rainy almost all the time). I hooked tarpons 4 times but I managed to land only one but the nice size ;) This was a realy good day! P.S. If You are thinking on booking trip with them, do not hesitate! It is better to choose minimum 6 hour trip if You want to catch tarpon ;)

We booked a trip with this outfit. Very responsive and accommodating. We chose the 6 hour fishing experience for 3 in the afternoon. Jose was our guide.. very friendly and fun. He was attentive and kept things moving when the fish weren't biting. Jose was awesome. Guides can make or break your experience for sure. The fishing picked up after a couple of hours and we caught Tarpon, Barricuda, and Snook.. before we knew it, the day was over. We had a wonderful time. A great way to spend time in Mexico!

Fished with Mauricio today, we had an awesome morning fishing for baby tarpon and snook. This was my third trip to Cancun and my 3rd time fishing with these guys. Such an unexpected gem, the lagoon they fish is right in the hotel zone but they fish in the protected reserve so it is amazing. Today we fished to rolling juvenile tarpon in the 10-20lb range.. we jumped one but weren’t able to land him. We then moved to the back of the creeks to fish for baby tarpon, these were aggressive fish in the 2-5lb range. We finished our 4 hour trip sight fishing snook next to the mangroves, these were 5-10lb snook that were cruising between the mangrove holes. All in all this is the perfect place to come and stay in a nice hotel, fish early in the morning or late in the evening and get back to the family in between. Martin and his wife run an amazing operation based right in the hotel zone, such an awesome experience.

If you’re a fishing enthusiast looking for a TRUE fishing adventure, look no further! After a disappointing experience with a deep sea charter the day before, I found my experience with this company to be extremely refreshing! The boat is nimble and you are able to reach tight spots and multiple spots very quickly. The boat is quiet, engine turns off so you can truly be immersed in nature. My guide, Noel, he knows the topography of the lagoon very well and will hook you on to practically any fish you’re looking for. He knows where they all live! He’s very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable about the local fish and the many ways to hunt them. I had such an amazing time the first time that I actually booked a second trip! Noel was able to deliver an amazing experience both times.

Guides are very knowledgeable about the area we fished. Moved from spot to spot make to sure we were into fish. I caught Baby Tarpon, Barracuda, Speckled Trout, Jack Crevelle. Originally only booked one day of fishing, fished a total of 3 days that week. Would definitely recommend them with no hesitation.
