Fly fishing in Mazatlán is a favorite offshore pastime. Surrounded by a beautiful ocean with sun sparkling on the water, it is a rewarding and peaceful experience.
Fishing here is easy, but catching particular species is a challenge because there's such an amazing variety. Off the Sinaloa coast, you will find marlin, sailfish, swordfish, wahoo, dorado, tuna, bonito, shark, and more.
If lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the extremely rare and endangered vaquita, a type of porpoise that is Mexico’s only native marine mammal.
If heading out on a Mazatlán sport fishing trip, you can start from Marina Mazatlán, Marina El Cid, Club Nautico, or Mazatlán Island.
Mazatlán is one of Mexico's prime fishing destinations. There are numerous good beaches for fishing located near Mazatlán's main tourist area, the Zona Dorada (Golden Zone) and the oldest part of the city.
