    What To Expect

    Meet your skipper and fishing guide directly at La Nacional Beach Club in Mahahual to board your private charter and set out past the reef to troll for fish a few miles away from the shores of Costa Maya.

    Learn from your fishing guide how to spot prime fishing spots to cast lines or nets and pull up tuna and other large ocean fish like mahi mahi, wahoo, and Spanish mackerel. Try your hand at jigging and fly fishing and see what you can pull up from the waves for about three hours, then head back to shore to relax at the beach club and feast on your catch, cooked up for you by the staff.

    My son is an avid fisherman and loved the trip. He caught two barracudas. Nick, our guide, was incredibly personable and knowledgeable. After the trip, our fish were cooked up for us and we had lunch on the beach. Would definitely recommend.

    Don't waste your time or money!

    Our first impression was a small dingy of a boat. The crew was polite but not interactive with my family. It was just 3 fishing lines being dragged by the boat the bait was just skipping on top of the water. We did not catch a single fish. The ride was rough and uncomfortable.
    Great time on the water!

    We had a great time fishing in Costa Maya! Our guide, Nick, was friendly and knowledgeable, and we had great conversation while we fished. My 12-year-old son was able to reel in two barracuda! We had an absolute blast and would definitely do this again. The only concern we had was that our guide joined us for lunch and didn’t offer to pay for the two drinks he ordered, then asked us to tip him out of sight of the two other men in the boat. It seemed odd. Overall, great time!
    A must do!!

    The most memorable part? Nick Luke. He was a joy and an unexpected pleasure. He made the three hour trip feel like minutes. We had four hits and landed one huge barracuda. Nick arranged for the restaurant to cook our fish and stayed with us throughout the meal entertaining us with the most engaging conversation on books, music, and cinema. This is a definite stop if you’re in Costa Maya.
    Tour was exactly as described.

    Nick and crew were excellent hosts. Fishing was fun, and successful! Perfect amount of time on the water
    Great time and caught 6 fish
    Rebecca_L, Mar 2024
    We were a group of 4 and we all caught fish. Nick was great as our guide and his boat crew were beyond fabulous. Felix was a boat captain. We caught 6 barracuda in total but put the last one back as we had caught plenty already. Nick had the club restaurant cooked up one for our lunch. We could not eat it all.
    refuneded for a busted trip
    Anthony_H, Feb 2024
    we actually only made it partially through the trip and I begged to be brought back to land. The ocean waves were so choppy on the smaller fishing vessell. Had I taken some motion sickness medication I would have been fine. The captain (Felix) and his first mate were amazing. we requested a partial refuned and were granted such. This is a great company to work with for that very reason
    Beautiful boat ride, nice folks, one barracuda, no bathroom aboard, good to get out of the cruise port and easy cab ride
    Kevin_M, Feb 2024
    Was just as described and expected... except Only One Fish. Messages to/from the vendor were helpful and appreciated. Directions to the National Beach Club were good and cab was easy with fare of $10 us. Cabs were also available for the return to the cruise port. "Nick" (mate) was really nice and friendly, the only english speaker of the three. They fished inside the reef due to winds and we did miss a few strikes on the baitfish, catching just One Barracuda! Think we got shorted a bit on our time and sensed that "one fish was good enough"? Next time we'll monitor time better and possibly negotiate an extra hour or so, if possible due to taking some travel time to get to fishing and more to get back leaving less than two hours to actually fish on a 3-hour trip. Nice boat covered from sun/rain, but NO BATHROOM and not big enough for more than two adults. Think we'll fish with them again next time we're in Costa Maya
    Wahoooo was so great!
    Joan_L, Feb 2024
    Had an amazing experience! We catched baracuda and a huge wahoo that were cooked for us when we arrived! I recommend booking fishing trip with them it was totally worth it! Thanks captain!
    Unforgettable experience!
    Hunter_G, Jan 2024
    We had an awesome time at the beach club and out on the water! The weather changed on us quickly but we still made the most of it and had a great time. The staff and the owner were very accommodating and it was a pleasure hanging out with Nick our guide out on the water. It was neat seeing all of the flying fish jumping across the surface!
    4 hours of Enjoyment

    Excellent fishing with a great crew. Nick and Ceasar kept it light and kept things exciting. We caught 3 barracuda and 1 tuna. I went with my 10 year old daughter, my friend and his 9 year old son. All had a blast.
    Awesome fishing.
    Tamra_C, Dec 2023
    Nick and his crew were persistent, and it paid off with lunch made from our catch! Everyone was helpful and friendly. For my money, the best deal in Costa Maya!
    Terrible we would like a refund of $150
    Patrick_W, Nov 2023
    It was terrible had to wade to the boat did not catch anything no soda or beer I would not recommend this outing to any body captain did not speak English we didn’t even see. Fish we only fished 2 and half hours we were supposed to go 4
    Best fishing trip!
    Logan_M, Oct 2023
    Evan & his crew were absolutely amazing! My husband, and our best friends went last week and had a blast! Super down to earth guy to spend the day with fishing! We all caught barracuda and we couldn’t be happier with the experience!
    Freakin Sweet!!!!
    Michael_S, Sep 2023
    Evan and his crew were top notch. This was a great fishing trip. Just a short cab ride to the beach club and we were fishing. The guides were great about explaining The beach club prepared a delicious meal with our catch and was able to time whole trip to accomodate our cruise.
    Best day ever!

    We came to Costa Maya on Carnival Celebration and booked this on our own. Axel and his 1st mate were awesome, polite and professional. It’s called fishing not catching for a reason. They don’t guarantee you will catch fish but do their best. Luckily we hooked up 5 times and landed 2 Barracuda. My son caught the big 28 pounder! They even fileted one for us and Evan and his awesome team at the National beach club grilled it up for us. Evan was an awesome host and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Evan is quick to respond to emails and will answer all your questions. We plan on going back just to stay at his hotel. You will NOT be disappointed booking this fishing trip. I booked this because my son loves fishing and we now have a memory we will never forget. These guys delivered. Thank you so much Axel, Evan and the whole team!
    Great Trip
    Brad_R, Aug 2023
    Nick was great, he and the crew kept us on fish and then he helped the group get squared away to eat the catch afterwards. Great experience and would love to do it again
    bobby_s, Jul 2023
    We caught 8 fish’s . It was a great time and staff was great . We stay out over 3 hours fishing . Perfect fishing trip
    Texans gone fishin’!
    Robert_H, Jul 2023
    The guys were great! Caught a huge barracuda and we were all able to help reel it in! Weren’t able to clean and cook our catch which was a bummer. Choppy waters and a couple of us got a bit seasick but nothing that could be helped. Overall a fun experience!
    Fishing fun
    Jeremy_W, Jul 2023
    What a great crew. They took us out, and we caught a barracuda within 2 minutes. This was a fantastic 3 hour fishing trip. The wife and 2 kids had a blast. We would have caught not, but sharks kept stealing the fish. So much fun. They even brought snacks and drinks for everyone.
    Fun time catching some Barracuda!
    Kyle_H, Jul 2023
    Had a great time on the water with Nick and team! We trolled for the entire ~ 3 hour trip and had pretty good action. Pulled in 2 good size barracuda, lost a couple more, and had something large break the 200lb test line! Nick was a great teacher to the 12 & 13 yr old boys we took along. We made great memories from this one and will definitely look up Nick again when we come back to Roatan!
