The most exciting deep sea fishing and light tackle adventure in the Mexican Caribbean is right outside our doorstep in Isla Mujeres. It is world renowned for its Atlantic Sailfish bite, often going into double digit days during the Winter time. But is also known for its excellent White and Blue Marlin bite! You will have the opportunity to catch these Billfish along with many other pelagic species year-round such as, Dorado, Tuna, and Wahoo. Reef fishing is also excellent with stellar Grouper, Snapper, and Kingfish stocks right offshore.The IGFA World Record for Sailfish releases on Fly was achieved in Isla Mujeres with a total number of releases in a day standing at 13! The Keen M crew specializes in Deep Sea Fly Fishing and can also supply Fly tackle upon request. As with any GHO Expedition we also specialize in conservation and we practice catch & release on all Billfish species and with food species the practice is, keep what you can eat back at the lodge and release the rest.
All Expeditions include pick up and drop off at the airport plus continental breakfast and lunch on the boat.
