Fish 2 Dish

Tour Duration: 3.5 Hours

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: This tour has an option to keep and eat fish of a correct size and species harvested in a sustainable manner. This is an option. Guests can choose to catch and release all fish if they so wish, a fresh fish lunch from the restaurant will be included for those people who choose to catch and release or those who don’t catch any fish of the correct size or species.


  • Perfect for people visiting Costa Maya (Mahahual) by cruise ship and also people here on holiday who have always wanted to try sea fishing. This quick introduction is an ideal activity for family groups. For a private booking please email with your arrival date to check availability.
  • The opportunity to eat your own catch freshly prepared in a beach side restaurant upon your return. Styles of cooking depend largely on the species and size. The chef will make the best suggestions for your catch. Styles include fried whole fish, fillet in garlic and white wine, Al Ajillo, butter and garlic, a la diabla or tempura battered.
  • This tour is ideal to be shared by a father and son or two people wishing to share one fishing rod, in this instance there is a small extra charge to cover the extra drinks and the extra food.
  • On the way to the bottom fishing area you will troll two rods behind the boat with artificial lures. This is a good opportunity to catch a Barracuda, Jack or maybe something bigger. This will be two rods per time. In the event of 4 fishermen in the boat this means 2 get to troll the way out and 2 the way back. If there are 6 people onboard then they will split the time between all 6. In the event of a caught fish, the fisherman will pass the rod on to the next guest.
  • Arriving at the bottom fishing reef location every person or couple sharing will be given a baited rod, shown how to operate it and the necessary fishing technique for catching fish.
