The Gulf of Mexico is bordered and nearly landlocked by North America. The gulf’s eastern, northern, and northwestern shores lie within the United States of America. The Gulf is well known for its calm sea conditions and excellent year round deep sea fishing. Deep sea fishing on the Gulf of Mexico for grouper and snapper is fantastic most any time of the year. Other offshore fish such as kingfish, cobia, tuna, amberjack, Spanish mackerel, dolphin, shark, barracuda, tarpon, permit, mahi and giant red fish are all caught as they seasonally migrate through the deep sea waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

At a depth of more than 12,000 feet, Sigsbee Deep is the deepest part of the Golf of Mexico . It is more than 300 miles long and is sometimes called the “Grand Canyon under the sea.” Its closest point to the Texas coast is 200 miles southeast of Brownsville. The total area of the Gulf of Mexico is about 600,000 square miles. The shortest distance across the Gulf of Mexico is about 500 miles between the Mississippi Delta and the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula.The greatest distance across the Gulf of Mexico is approximately 1,000 miles going east to west. The Gulf of Mexico links the ports of five southern U.S states (Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas) and six Mexican states (Tamaulipas, Vera Cruz, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatán, and Quintana Roo) with the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.
