About Scorpion Atoll

Scorpion Atoll Flats hold the biggest permit and bones on Mexican Waaters due to the protection that the Marine Park has been subject since 1997 when commercial fishing was banned, besides the lack of pressure for being so far from mainland. Bonefish range from 4 to 10 + pounds and Permit over 30 pounds make this trip unique these  days where there is not much untouched waters.

At Scorpion Atoll we are exploring new waters every trip. Just for adventurer souls and avid anglers.

Pristine habitat

Lack of pressure

70 miles offshore

Our guides

Our guide team is comprised of native fishermen with an outstanding ability to read the water. They are very experienced at fishing for tarpon in Tarpon Town Campeche where they learned their guiding skills and could work with anglers of all skill levels. When fishing at the Atoll, they are still researching the best areas and understanding the timing of the tides. This is what makes the trip to Scorpion Atoll special! It hasn’t been explored in full. You as the angler are involved with this adventure, although not all of them speak good English, you can expect them to give you their best effort in finding you lots of action. There is one guide per two anglers ratio on the flats and boats.



On each trip, we’ll have two 14’-15’ aluminum semi-V Jon boats with 15-h.p. outboards to reach the farthest unexplored flats of the atoll where the liveaboard cannot easily navigate. The boats are also used as transportation for possible (DIY) fishing on some of the islands.
