Mexico: Scorpion Atoll PRIME Availability

February 8, 2019

Located approximately 68 miles north of the Mexican port town of Progreso, Arrecife Alacranes (Scorpion Reef) is a flats fisherman’s paradise and a destination that is relatively easy to reach from the US.

The waters of the atoll have been designated as a national marine park, which has allowed an ecosystem full of nesting birds, sea turtles, and of course big bonefish and permit to flourish.

This is the ideal destination for anglers looking for a remote, totally off-the-grid saltwater trip – similar in many ways to the more remote and exotic destinations of the Indian Ocean. With only a handful of trips offered each year this is an incredible opportunity for the adventuring angler.
