The Yucatán Peninsula, where Puerto Aventuras is situated, has two major channels that serve as highways for pelagic fish species migrating to and from the Gulf of Mexico throughout the year. The Yucatán Channel, which is between the Yucatán Peninsula and Cuba and is 120 miles wide and 2800 ft deep, is a prime location for deep sea fishing. Another channel, located between the island of Cozumel and Puerto Aventuras, is also a major thoroughfare for game fish species. Furthermore, the entire coast of Puerto Aventuras lies along the edge of a large underwater valley, providing easy and quick access to offshore fishing.
