Route questions FL - Yucatan

Hello everyone,

I have a 62' Offshore motor yacht in Fort Lauderdale. I want to take it to the Mexican mainland (Cozumel). Ideally I would like to leave FL on or about March 1st. I live in Southern California and I want to get the boat back to Dana Point. This will be the first leg of the journey.

Here are my questions:

1. Weather - what can I typically expect in this region during March?
2. Is there any fishing (dorado etc.) or is it off season
3. Can I stop in Havana? Can I anchor off Cuba to break up my travels?

Thank you in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Jimmy Cornell's World Cruising Routes should be a good resource about weather and routes to take.

Fishing is probably controlled within the 200 miles of the US in its Exclusive Economic Zone. But I suspect that Cuba and Mexico don't care, particularly far from their shores.

It is my understanding that US flagged vessels can stop in Cuba. I wouldn't anchor in Cuban waters without first clearing in at a nearby port.
