Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Fishing at it's Best!

OCEAN TOURS is very passionate about Deep Sea Fishing. It's a love that was born long ago, as the owner's father Chartered Fishing trips in Cancun for many years. Cozumel is one of the best locations for Sportsfishing in the Caribbean, as the many species of Billfish come right down the Channel of Cozumel (the protected waterway between Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsula) every year during the Billfish run from late February to early September, peaking between April and June. Sailfish, Blue Marlin, White Marlin as well as the tasty Mahi Mahi all make their yearly run right on our front door.

Please be advised that OCEAN TOURS has a strict catch and release policy for Billfish, all efforts will be made to ensure that Blue Marlin, White Marlin and Sailfish are returned to the water alive after a few pictures. Cozumel is also in a privileged position as the reef systems around the island, as well as the shallow mangrove bays, provide a perfect breeding ground for Cozumel's year-round fishing species: Black & Yellow Fin Tuna, Grouper, Red Snapper, Barracuda, Wahoo, Rainbow Runners, several species of Shark, and others.

So anytime of the year you are here, you have good chances of getting some action, especially aboard OCEAN TOURS' pride & joy KAY KIB. The KAY KIB (Mayan for Sailfish) is Ocean Tours' main fishing vessel, although we own 2 other fishing boats that we use when the Kay Kib is booked. She's a 36' Custom-Built boat, finished and put in the water in May 2002. This boat was hand built by the owner José de la Fuente here in Cozumel, with help from Captain Jorge Pacheco and 1st Mate Ruben.

For 6 long months they labored over the design and construction, spending the final month hand-finishing every custom detail. The KAY KIB is a very comfortable, functional and clean vessel, equipped with some of the best tackle made for deep sea fishing: Penn International "Gold Series", plus a large collection of teasers, lures, lines, and even a couple of light tackle reels & rods for when the youngsters come along.

It has outriggers and downrigger, a fighting chair plus a couple of stand-up rigs, GPS, fish finder, AM/FM Stereo/CD, VHF Radio + back-up/long range private repeater, restroom and sink w/mirror, polarized & shaded padded sofa seating area, lunch tables, storage area, built-in coolers, refrigerator/freezer, fish tank, fresh water shower, retractable step-up ladder to/from water, and comfortable seating for guests on the top deck with the Captain, for those that just love to see them coming.

She is by far one of the best equipped fishing boats in Cozumel.

And to top it all off, the crew of the Kay Kib is one of the most experienced, hardest working and friendliest in the business here. The Captain and 1st Mate grew up fishing these waters, and are not only very experienced and dedicated fishermen, they are also well-spoken, wonderful hosts who will take great care of you in a very professional manner, and work hard the entire Charter to get you into the action.                                                                                                                                        

For our fishing trips we will pick you up at your hotel if it has a pier, or at the nearest available pier.

We offer 4 and 8 hour Private Charters. Our trips are priced for a maximum 6 people, although we have had private parties go out with as many as 10. A Private Charter is just that, you, your party, and no one else on the boat but the crew.

At OCEAN TOURS we take your business very seriously, we know that you want the peace of mind that when you arrive on vacation, everything you have arranged with us will be ready, exactly as we agreed, and that things will run smoothly.

We are also faced with the growing popularity Cozumel has, and know that certain times of the year we will be very busy and that in some cases we will have little or no space on our tours, we also never like to turn away our walk-in clients to hold a reservation that for some reason doesn't arrive.

For these and several other reasons, we require a deposit for any service to have a Secure Reservation. We do not guarantee any service for which we do not have a Secured Reservation. There are of course unforeseen events that could happen that are completely out of our hands, like weather, or a last minute situation at home that makes you change you plans. Please read our Cancellation Policy closely, as these terms are binding for any reservation with us. It is very important to come to the shop or call from your room or any hotel phon (ext. 8) to let us know you have arrived and ready for the next day diving.

We are open from 7:30 am to 7 pm, everyday including Sundays and holidays.

*Pricing Information: Cash Discounted Price v.s. Full Price

We offer a discount for payment in cash (U.S. Dollars, Travelers Checks or Pesos), this discount cannot be offered if payment is made with Visa or Mastercard, normally the deposit is made with a credit card, and the balance is paid in cash upon arrival.


To make a Secure Reservation for any of our services we require a deposit of 30 to 100 dollars depending on the total cost of the service. Because mailing checks or going to the bank to make a deposit in a foreign account can be a hassle, and emailing credit card information is risky, the easiest & safest way to make a deposit for a Secure Reservation is with our Credit Card Secure Reservation Form, we will email it to you as an attachment in MSWord, you can print it up, fill it in, scan it or fax to us.

We will then make the according charge to your credit card, and upon confirmation we will email you a Secured Reservation Confirmation. If you use the Reservation Form we ask that you bring with you the credit card you used for the Reservation and a picture ID, sign the deposit charge and you can then settle the balance in cash, and get the Discounted Cash Price for the balance, as in the following example:

Half Day Fishing Charter: $480 US Dollars Cash Discounted Price
                                                -50 US Dollars as deposit
                                               $430 US Dollars cash balance

To make a Secure Reservation in this case we would charge the credit card $55 US Dollars ($50+$5) as a deposit, and upon arrival the client could pay the balance in cash and still get most of the service at the Cash Discounted Price, having paid the Full Price on the deposit only.

Cancellation Policy for Secured Reservation Deposit

- If for any reason you need to cancel a Secured Reservation that has been confirmed, you can cancel it up to 7 days before the service and receive a full refund of the deposit. If you cancel the reservation within the 7 days prior to the service you forfeit the deposit and will not receive any refund.

- If while you're here the service cannot be provided because of weather conditions, or any unforeseen event, you will receive a full refund of the deposit, in cash.

Making Reservations

To help us serve you better, please include in the subject line of your emails the service you are inquiring about, and if possible the dates you are interested in. For any information request, or to make reservations for any service please email us, and include if possible a telephone number we may reach you at, as for some reason sometimes emails get lost in cyberspace when coming from our remote Caribbean location. We look forward to your requests and your visit.

About Us

Ocean Tours Watersports, formerly Scuba Scuba, based in El Cozumeleño Resort and owned by José & Laura de la Fuente has been meeting the needs of visitors to Cozumel for more than 20 years.

OCEAN TOURS is a family owned business whose experience spans over 2 generations of the De La Fuente family. José and Laura De La Fuente started in 1986 as PADI DM′s here in Cozumel, and after several years of hard work opened up their first dive business called Scuba Scuba, with one dive boat & 12 tanks. With a little elbow grease, lots of hard work, and quality service the business flourished into a full service Water Sports facility with 9 boats, wave runners, snorkel tours, deep sea fishing, parasailing and of course certified scuba trips, and scuba certifications.

(Rubén, José, Laura & Jorge)                                                       OT Staff

We cherish our return clients, and always try our best to make each experience better than the last.

Many years of experience and safe, reliable services are what backs up our stand-up performance.
