      Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Deep Sea Fishing Adventure

      Ixtapa, Mexico
      From (USD) $123 Per Person (Minimum 2)
      • Big-game fishing: Join the savvy anglers who've hooked prized specimens in the waters off Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. Soaring sailfish are the most abundant game, but there are plenty of black marlin, blue marlin, yellow-knife tuna, and more.
      • Experienced captains: Thanks to the first-hand knowledge of your captain/guide, you'll throw your line where the fish are biting. Our skippers come from long lines of local fishermen.
      • Equipment included: Rod, reel, line, bait, even the fishing license are all part of the package on this adventure; all you have to do is sit back until you reach the right spot, about 15 miles off shore.
      About This Ixtapa Tour

      Some of the best big-game fishing in the world is found along the coast of the Mexican Pacific. From Baja to Ixtapa, the waters are teeming with sailfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, and other species of fighting fish. Which is why the area hosts many international fishing tournaments, including the prestigious International Tournament for Sailfish and Marlin.

      Famous writers and amateur fishermen Zane Grey and Ernest Hemingway made trips to the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo area looking to hook a prize fish; in 1925, Grey landed a 139-pound sailfish - a world record at the time.

      But you can't catch them if you can't find them, and that's where experience and know-how come in. Local captains come from generation upon generation of fishermen; they know the hotspots and honey holes. The boats are up to the minute on equipment and gear, but it's the handed-down knowledge that makes the difference.

      With sailfish averaging 75 to 100 pounds, marlin (blue and black) ranging from 250-500 pounds, wahoo reaching 65 pounds and yellow-knife tuna as much as 300 pounds, you're in for a fight of wills and stamina. And if you're not planning on eating what you catch, throw it back in and let him test another angler, another day.

      That's how to be a good sport.

      Life in the fast lane

      When it comes to marine creatures that swim fast, most people think of sharks, barracudas, and dolphins. While all those are speedy, the marlin is faster, capable of reaching 50 miles per hour. But the marlin is still not the fastest fish in the world. That title belongs to the sailfish, which can move under the water as fast as we cruise on the Interstate - an astonishing 70 miles per hour.
