The XTC Fly Fishing Experience

Fly fishing Xcalak with XTC Dive Center is a unique experience unlike any other adventure in the Yucatan. XTC local guides maintain a high degree of knowledge on fly fishing and casting artificial lures for all species of saltwater fish found in the area. We have the safest, fastest, and driest boats in the Xcalak fishing fleet. We keep high quality fishing equipment on hand if you do not have your own.

Fishing with XTC Dive Center is a special experience. Since Xcalak is essentially a narrow peninsula that separates the Caribbean Sea from Bahia Chetumal, three very different fishing areas exist. The Caribbean coast, the inner mangrove lagoons, and the edge of the bay each have their own unique characteristics. When wind, rain, tidal conditions or water clarity in one area is not favorable for fishing, two other areas are always available for potential success.

The variety of available species to fish for extends beyond the bonefish, tarpon, permit, and snook. Large snappers abound on the coast, in the mangrove lagoons and in some deeper water at the edge of the bay. Several species of jacks take flies and artificial lures extremely well. Barracudas are found in all three areas and those fish worthy of trophy photos are more readily found in the bay. Large ladyfish that rival tarpon in tenacity readily eat artificial lures all along the coastal shore. Whether you targeting a Grand Slam or you are fishing for the first time, XTC Dive Center is the place to make your fishing adventure happen.
