Excursion Description

Take to the deep blue waters of the Caribbean to do battle with fighting gamefish on this Deep Sea Fishing shore excursion off the Cozumel coast. Enjoy a splendid day of fishing as you and a handful of Carnival cruisers wrestle with high-flying billfish and drink to the ones that got away.

No fishing experience is necessary (since there is no guarantee you’ll catch anything) for this Cozumel shore excursion—the expert boat crew aboard the 31-foot Island Hopper does it all. Depending on weather conditions and catch reports, you and your boatload of anglers head out to one of three reliable spots, each a breezy thirty-minute sail from Puerta Maya Pier—and each between 1,000 and 2,000 feet deep. Sit back and enjoy the scenery as the crew sets lines and bait and monitors the Island Hopper’s special fish finder. The boat trolls the sea at a leisurely 5 knots. Feel the breeze in your face as you sip an icy beer—this is the life! 

Ready to test your fishing skills? Everyone on board gets a turn in the fighting chair—and now you’re in the hot seat. Was that a nibble or a real bite? The real drama begins—they don’t call it a “fighting chair” for nothing! All participants rotate every five minutes at the fishing stations; if you’ve managed to catch something, it’s time for the perfect keepsake: a photo of you with the one that didn’t get away—until the next time, that is.

Book this Deep Sea Fishing shore excursion to battle big game fish in the company of fellow Carnival cruisers on the deep blue sea. This Cozumel shore excursion is an exciting way to add fun ashore to your fun afloat.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review
