Cancun / Puerto Morelos
I thought I would share a little more information about our new
sportfishing location at Puerto Morelos, in Quintana Roo State,
Mexico, about 15 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport.
The all new, El Cid Caribe Hotel and Marina facility is an extension
of the world-famous, El Cid Mega-Resort, in Mazatlan. Everything
is literally new, the sportfishing operation, the marina, the
hotel, (300 five-star luxury units) and is located on a white,
sandy beach, midway between Cancun & Cozumel, (approximately
20-25 miles in either direction).
The sportfishing operations and marina are under the guidance of
General Manager Armando Gutierrez, (Armando went to the Maritime
College with Geronimo Cevallos, the GM of the Marina El Cid, in
Mazatlan). Armando has a genuine interest in the services provided
aboard the various sportfishers and sincerely cares about the success
of your charter fishing arrangements. Customer satisfaction has
become his personal goal, which has long been the standard for all El
Cid Marinas and hotels. Armando is English fluent and enormously
responsive to providing a superior sportfishing entertainment operation.
Currently, the sportfishing fleet consists of four top-notch
sportfishing cruisers, (a 29' Bertram, 29' Californian, a 29' Phoenix
and a 31' Uniflite) all rigged with outriggers, downriggers, Penn
fishing tackle, twin diesel power, required safety equipment, ship
tto shore radios, sparkling clean bathrooms and more..... Additional
sportfishers for larger groups are available and can be added as the
need requires. The daily charter fishing rates are split into three
different hourly categories, 4-6 & 8-hour durations. The current
charter rates are reflected below:
|4 Hours $500.00
||4 Hours $350.00
|6 Hours $600.00
||6 Hours $400.00
|8 Hours $700.00
|| 8 Hours $500.00

Charters are inclusive of boats, crew, fuel, Mexican fishing
licenses, all fishing tackle, rigged baits, beer, soft drinks,
water, dispatch fees, ice, value added taxes and round-trip ground
transportation from any Cancun and local hotels.
The sportfishers come well equipped, using Penn Senator 4/0's,
with 30-40 lb. line, terminal tackle, down-riggers, outriggers
and fighting chair(s). Most of the blue water fishing is accomplished
using rigged ballyhoo as trolling baits. Electronics consist of
Fish Finders, GPS navigation and VHF ship-to-ship/shore radios
on both, the cruisers and super pangas.
The distance to the fishing grounds is incredibly close and begins
within 2 miles of the Marina entrance, allowing for much more
fishing time for each charter. All-in-all, we, expect this new
addition to our charter service to enhance sportfishing opportunities
for our angling customers traveling to the Cancun-Cozumel area.
