Isla Blanca Cancun
Permit, baby tarpon and snook will keep you fishing all day
Isla Blanca flats are located just 30 minutes from Cancun’s downtown.
The fishing opportunities
Baby tarpon and snook can be found year round in the Cancun and Isla Blanca area. It is a great place to be fishing for tarpon. If you're looking for bonefish, the summer months are the most productive, although there is not a big abundance of bonefish in that area. For those who are after permit, Isla Blanca is the way to go with large numbers of fish showing up in May through August and are the peak months for fishing for permit.
Among those species we can also find barracuda, snappers, jacks, sea trout and ladyfish. The chances of getting a Grand Slam or Super Slam are likely as the area is hardly fished and a lot of the water is so shallow that commercial fishing boats can not enter the area.
We use a custom 18ft. Panga with a 40hp Yamaha four-stroke engine which will make those rides with little effort. Also, these Pangas can be poled in less than ten inches of water so we face no restrictions when out on the flats.
We believe that a guide has a much better view when poling from a platform rather than from the back of the boat, so we put a poling platform on all of our Pangas. The last thing you want to happen to you is spotting that permit or bonefish when it is too close to the boat and spooks.
Included in the trip:
* Hotel Pick Up and Return (Cancun hotelzone and downtown)
For our trip to Isla Blanca we arrange hotel pick-ups at your hotel if you are staying in the Cancun Hotel Zone or Downtown Cancun. Pick up time is at 5:30am. We only do 8hr trips as the area is a lot bigger than Cancun and to get you to all the spots requires a longer boat ride.
