ISLA MUJERES, Mexico - June 9, 2015 - PRLog -- Sailfish, marlin, tuna and other big game fish are swarming the waters off of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Large catches are the norm, making Isla Mujeres the destination for sport fishing.

“Sailfish, marlin, mahi mahi and other big-game species feed in great numbers in the summer months. This makes Isla Mujeres a mecca for sport fishing and diving enthusiasts,” said John Vater, co-founder of ecotourism travel agency Ceviche Tours (, which has been running sport fishing charters since 2007.

“We’re seeing hundreds of tuna, sailfish, bonito and wahoo in the open waters,” continued Vater. “In Isla Mujeres, anglers catch up to a dozen or more fish per boat in a single day of fishing.”

Atlantic sailfish and other big-game fish come through the area by the thousands as they chase swarms of sardines to feed upon. This makes catch-and-release fishing of bill fish, which allows sportfishers 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. Table fare of other species can be had as well.

Charters include:

Sport fishing
Swimming with whale sharks
Snorkeling in the open waters with sailfish
Reef snorkel tours
