Mexico Fishing Licenses and Mexico Boat Permits

fishing license
If you are planning on bringing a boat into Mexico, it is extremely important that you understand all of the rules and regulations for boating in Mexico. Make sure to read the Sportfishing Regulations from the Mexican Oficina de Pesca (Fishing Office) before you bring your boat into Mexico. Failure to comply with the rules could result in serious fines and your boat being confiscated!

Update: Effective January 2008, boat permits are no longer required for vessels practicing sportfishing in Mexican waters.

However, you sill still need fishing licenses for everyone on board the boat!

Please also read important information on how to insure your boat while in Mexico.

This refers only to the boat's yearly sportfishing permit and applies in all of Mexico. All other documentation requirements, including the vessel's 10 year temporary import permit, issued by Mexican customs and required in order to keep you boat in Mexico up to 10 years, are still in place and were not modified in any way. read more >>
