Tarpon Summer Season (Giant and Baby Tarpon + other species)
The season begins May 15th and continues through September.

The Giants arrive in mid May and stay through September.

Baby Tarpon are plentiful here all year long. The weather conditions are best at this time of year for fly fishing.There is  less wind than in the winter season and we normally have good fishing conditions for 6 hrs of fishing daily

Cost per day  Tarpon Summer Season

395usd - 1 boat with two fishermen


Bone fishing on Arrecife Alacranes

 Trips are not yet scheduled for 2017  Please Ask!

We try to do two bone fishing trips to Alacranes each year.   ( June,July,August and Sept are the only months we can go.All the bone fishing trips to Alacranes are combined with Tarpon Fishing in Rio Lagartos.We need a minimum of 7 days and what makes the most sense is an 8-10 day package.This gives us the option of choosing the best and safest weather for the 4 or 5 day  trip to Alacranes.Before and after Alacranes we fish Giant Tarpon here in Rio Lagartos. 
This has worked well on the 6 trips I have made to Alacranes.To plan a trip months in advance just for Alacranes is almost impossible.

We use two boats to carry the fishermen and all the necessary food and gear(we provide all food and camping gear).

Transportation to Rio Lagartos( Van pickup vs Rental car)
Pick up at the airport makes the most sense for groups of 4 or more fishing for a week or more   The cost for pick up and return is 600usd for groups.
For small groups (2-4) and short stays a rental car arranged in advance online from one of the car rental agencies makes more sense. Driving in the Yucatan is safe and easy on well maintained roads.Driving time to Rio Lagartos from Cancun is about 3 hrs.
