Scorpion Atoll Mexico Fly Fishing Arrival Dock

What: Book now to enjoy one of the most unique saltwater fly fishing experiences in the Caribbean – fly fishing the waters of Scorpion Atoll in Mexico!

Travel Details:
As of today, there are no international flights to and from Merida. We know United will resume operations in October but not the exact date. However, Cancun (CUN) airport will work and is a convenient way to get there. The outfitter will send a driver to pick the group up there. The group should ride together, otherwise, we may quote separate rides for a surcharge. We suggest flying in on early schedules so we have time to relax in Merida the night before the trip. On the departure date, everyone will be shuttled to Cancun after docking.

Sanitary Measures
Everyone is required to wear a mask in public places and enclosures. Also when inside the vessel during daytime & activity… No need to wear it while fishing nor sleeping.

  • The vessel will be sanitized continuously during the trip.
  • Guides will take pics with their own cameras and phones and we will send them to you electronically.
  • All drinks will be served  in individual bottles  (except coffee)
  • There will be plenty of Hand Sanitizer gels all over the vessel.
  • Keep social distancing as much as possible.

Where: Scorpion Atoll, Mexico

Why: Alacranes Reef or, Scorpion Atoll, is the largest coral structure in the Gulf of Mexico. Since 1997 the waters of the atoll have been designated as a marine park forbidding any commercial fishing. The remoteness and seclusion of the atoll will remind anglers of destinations like the Seychelles or Christmas Island. Enjoy the atoll while wade fishing for big bonefish and permit. The fishery also holds large numbers of barracudas, triggerfish, sharks, amberjacks, mutton snappers, as well as other Caribbean flats species
