Isla Mujeres, Mexico has become the destination for fishing for sailfish; the Ferrari of game fish, which swarm the crystal blue waters off the coast of Cancun from December until late May. Get hooked on this adventure sport with ecotourism travel agency Ceviche Tour for an experience of a lifetime.
“Sailfish and other big-game species feed in great numbers off the sandy shores of Cancun. This makes Isla Mujeres a mecca for sport fishing and diving enthusiasts,” said John Vater, co-founder of Ceviche Tours, which has been running sailfishing charters since 2007.
Guests can also swim with the sailfish for a truly unforgettable adventure.
Atlantic sailfish come through the area by the thousands as they chase swarms of sardines to feed upon. This makes catch-and-release fishing, which allows sport-fishers to enjoy the hunt and catch of these fish then release them back into the wild, an amazing thrill and takes sustainability to a new level. In Isla Mujeres, anglers generally catch up to a dozen or more sailfish per boat in a single day of fishing.
Snorkeling with Sailfish
Imagine being surrounded by thousands of sardines as they whish by, being chased by huge, majestic sailfish, dolphins and other game fish. With Ceviche Tours, clients can snorkel with the sailfish as they feed on the sardine swarms. This can be done as part of the day of fishing, or as a special charter just to swim with the sailfish.
