Native Texan, Capt. Travis spent many summers as a child fishing in the Caribbean waters of Cancun while learning the fishing grounds and techniques commonly used here.

​The seed was planted, and what sprouted became the most incredible adventure of his life. After serving his country in the United States Navy and after years of climbing the ranks of the corporate ladder, Travis often found himself daydreaming of those good ole days as a youngster fishing in the crystal clear waters of Cancun.

​After a layoff from a sales job in oil and gas, he thought it was now or never, so he decided to move to Cancun. ​Capt. Travis got himself a small panga-style boat with a 60hp Suzuki and just started fishing. A few Instagram and Facebook posts later, people began to inquire about visiting and joining him on a fishing trip. ​

After more and more people started to show an interest in fishing with him, he decided to start Don Chingon Charters in 2016. ​ However, the struggle was real, and Travis constantly fought to keep the business afloat. Travis has always been a fighter, and most greenhorns probably would have gone home crying to momma but Capt. T., being the hardy, salt-crusted sailor of a guy that he is, managed to get through a few hurricanes and even a pandemic!

​Now, after years of fishing with some of the best captains and crews and realizing that not all clients want to go out on a panga boat, Capt. Travis has partnered up with the top fishing boats in Cancun and is now offering a fleet of fishing boats with sizes and styles to meet every budget and desire. ​

​So, what are you waiting for? Book your boat charter in Cancun today with the Don Chingon Team and let them show you why they are the #1 rated fishing charter in Cancun!
