What should you look for in a deep-sea fishing charter?

When going on your first deep-sea fishing challenge, you must make sure that the charter you will choose has you all backed up – they must be able to provide you with fishing gear (if you aren’t bringing your own) such as rods, reels, and tackle, fresh bait, snacks, and of course cold beer or soda to make this trip even more laid-back and relaxing.


Also check if the charter comes with the necessary facilities such as toilet, shade and sun areas, and air-condition (especially if it gets too hot and humid outside). The fleet usually ranges from 30', 31', 32’ and 42' foot depending on how big your party is and your budget.

They should also be able to take care of the fishing license since tourists are not allowed to fish without a licensed guide as well as transportation from the marina to your hotel or pier of arrival on Cozumel. Experienced English-speaking captains and mates should also man the vessel to ensure your safety. They should also know the correct parts to search for the big game.

For the fishing method, they should have at least 6 lines in tow at all times to maximize the chances of you reeling a big fish. Don’t worry; you will be the one reeling when a line catches something.
