Fishing Near Akumal

Akumal is a  destination that allows both for deep sea, shore, and flats fishing.  Permits are required for deep sea salt water fishing so it is best to work with a charter company who can make those arrangements for you.  Shorefishing and fly fishing can be done permit-free, so it is more popular among those who want to go it alone.  The best flats fishing can be found at Ascension Bay or Bocapaila where bonefish, permit, and tarpon are prevalent. 

If you like the idea of catching some fish during your vacation, you will find several charter fishing operators that can help you find the best fishing spots.

If you'd like to organize a fishing trip, you might want to contact Cap't Rick's. Known for offering some of the best service in the Riviera Maya and with over 20 years of experience, Cap't Rick is a trusted name in the fishing charter industry. Not to leave anyone out, you can charter the boats in this fleet for multitudes of maritime activities. They are located in Puerto Aventuras, Northeast of Akumal.

A second option is Fishing Charters MX. Six and eight hour trips also include lunch in the price along with the standard fishing gear, beverages, and snacks. You can call them at (984) 873-5463.

The great thing about charter fishing with Wasabi Loco is that they operate out of the dock in Puerto Aventuras which means you're just moments away from where the fishing happens.
