I booked a charter fishing trip for my husband and his friend while us woman stayed at the resort.The guys had a great time! They didn't catch a lot that day but from the sounds of it they caught more than other boats out there. This is a great price for a fishing charter compared to U.S. fees. You dont need a license her either, that is all included in the charter price. Would definitely do again on future trips.

I had a great time and was able to mark off a bucket list item by catching bonefish on a fly rod with flies that I tied! The guide was very informative and put me on fish all day! My biggest we estimated to over 6lbs. I was very surprised at the power and speed of the Cozumel Bonefish. I was down into my fly line backing on almost every fish! I got several shots at Permit but could not get one to take my fly. One thing I would recommend is to practice double haul casting a long distance everyday for a week or two before you go! I got my 8 weight travel TFO rod out and rigged it up went out to the front yard and did several double haul cast to insure I remembered how to do it. I only thought I was good to go. When I got out to the lagoons and started to cast for Bonefish I realized how rusty I was in the expansive Crystal clear flats in Cozumel. It took my a good while and several spooked schools of Bonefish to get things under control. All I can say is I am ready to go back it has to be my all time favorite Adventure! Fishing is my life and this is a must do for anyone who loves fishing. I highly recommend Cozumel Charters & My guide: Mosquito! Thank you, Larry Ladnier

We had an amazing experience with this charter and would highly recommend! The customer service was exceptional and they took care of everything. Our trip got postponed due to high winds but they were still able to get us on the water as soon as the ports opened back up. They kept in touch with us and kept us updated on everything. Our guides and captain were more than hospitable and provided us with everything we needed. They spoke English very well so we could understand everything and ask questions. We had a great lunch, snacks and drinks provided. We felt very comfortable and accommodated at all times and the best part, we even caught a Mahi Mahi!!! Our guide Frog offered to prepare ceviche right on the boat for us. Do not hesitate to book a charter!

Hello! We really appreciate your kind words! The wind has been hectic lately, but so happy it worked out and we got you out on the water! Thank you again for your patience and understanding during those days. Mahi mahi is one of the best! What a great catch, and hope you enjoyed the ceviche. Hopefully we will get the chance to again real soon!

We had a nice time with Manuel, Jesus and Martin on 3/17 and 3/19. We booked two 8 hour trips and we learned that leaving a little earlier makes a difference. The first day we caught two smaller mahi mahi and on the second day we left a little earlier and caught three wahoo and a barracuda. The crew arrived very early both days and were ready to go as soon as we were. They had a cooler ready with drinks and offered us snacks during the trip. We are looking forward to going back to Cozumel and fishing next year.

We loved our snorkeling charter. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew exactly where to take us and our kids to see the most fish and coral. She even brought tortillas to sprinkle In the water to attract the fish. We loved that this was private and we could avoid the large and crowded group tours. We would definitely recommend this tour to other families seeking an underwater experience in beautiful Cozumel.

Cozumel Charters delivers again!! I have used Cozumel Charters the past 5 years while in Cozumel Vacationing! I have always had great customer experience from booking the trip until trip completion. We opted to do the inland fly fishing this year instead of deep sea fishing. The 4 hour fly/ light tackle fishing was amazing. 3 people in our group everyone caught at least 6 fish each. Had a few break our lines since fishing with light weight gear. We caught a variety of fish from snook to white and yellow bar jack, snapper, and lady fish! There is always action on this trip! We went up around Passion Island which was our first time in that area absolutely beautiful! The fishing in that area was incredible! Highly recommend using Cozumel Charters and can’t wait until next year!!

Hello! What a great description! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Cozumel Charers! We appreciate it and look forward to next year. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the inland/light tackle/ fly fishing in the lagoon as much as you enjoy the deep sea. Great that eveyone caught so many!

They were late picking us up. Beyond that it was a great trip. Our Captain Bart and his deck hand Brian did a fantastic job and were as excited as we were to catch fish. I have been on several trips in Mexico and this one was on par with my previous trips. The difference is the people. They worked with me to get my trip in due to changing weather conditions and were pretty quick to respond to an email. Bart and Brian were great guys. One thing, Margaritaville is on Cozumel Island so if you are staying on the mainland, it's not an option. I will definitely book them again.

Hola! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. That morning there was a fuel issue and we appologize for the late start. Margaritaville is on Cozumel and actually closed right now as it is located inside one of the cruise ship terminals. We have other options on the island, as well as in the marina of Puerto Aventuras. Just ask the crew about cooking your catch, or communicate before your charter via email, and we are happy to communicate thos options to you. So happy you had a great time and thank you again. We look forward to next time!

Cozumel Charters is a class act! This was our second trip with them and this time we were lucky enough to land a beautiful 60 pound sailfish, some mahi and mackerel! Captain Elmer and his mates Manuel and Santos went above and beyond to ensure our experience was superb! We took a break to do a bit of snorkeling and Elmer took us to a wild stingray habitat where huge stingray swam right under us. The sailfish catch was so exciting and Elmer wrestled him up on the boat like the pro that he is!
This operation is 5 star from beginning to end- leading up to our trip I communicated with Ricky about conditions and arranging a special departure time and place, and as we made it back to shore Manuel walked with us and helped us get a taxi. These guys are amazing and will make your fishing trip everything it should be and more! Highly recommend!!

Manuel and his crew were a fun bunch and we caught a few fish too! They picked us up on time at our hotel's dock and we were on our way. We chose to "bottom" fish and ended up with a half a dozen grunts... which were delicious. Manuel and his mates were as hands on as you wanted or would "let you do your thing". The captain of the boat seemed to know when it was time to try a different site, which was much appreciated.
Not only would we recommend these guys, we plan to reserve another fishing excursion with them again in December when we return. Next time we will go for deep sea fishing!

We had an very good experience. Jorge and Manuel picked us up at our hotel dock promptly at 7 o’clock. We got right to fishing caught 12 mahi-mahi and jumped a sailfish. Manuel is the hardest working first mate I have ever seen. He tirelessly tended all of the lines plus fixed us sandwiches and snacks. When I come back to Cozumel I will definitely book again.
