Ascension Bay is located on the southeastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and with miles of coastline, shallow flats, and lagoon systems, the fishing opportunities here are endless. As a part of the Sian K'aan Biosphere, Ascension Bay is strictly protected from commercial fishing and development. This has allowed the bay to develop into what is arguably one of the most prolific permit, bonefish, snook, and baby tarpon fisheries in the Caribbean.Book well in advance >
The Ascension Bay Lodge is located in the tiny village of Punta Allen, which is a 3- 4 hour trip, south of Cancun Airport. We offer an overnight stop in Cancun or Tulum and then the following morning you only drive as a short distance to meet the guides and begin your fishing day, whilst the vehicle then takes your luggage on to the lodge. Once at the lodge at the end of your first day, you will be met with refreshments and allocated your rooms.Ask us about the whole experience>
Guides arrive at 7:50am to assist fishermen to their boats, which are parked on the beach in front of the lodge. The boats will depart by 8am and make the short run into the bay. Guests will fish for the target species of their choice until the boats return to the lodge at 4pm. Lunch will be taken out on the boats and usually consists of sandwiches, chips, fruit, salads, and cookies. Each boat has a yeti cooler filled with waters, sodas, gatorade, and a few beers for the run back home. Upon return to the lodge, guests will be served appetizers and drinks on the patio as our staff rinse down rods and store them in a secure facility. The late afternoon can be enjoyed telling stories of the day’s fishing exploits, tying flies, or as always, you are welcome to go fishing off the beach. Dinner is served around 7pm.
