Double Hook is a 37’ vessel equipped with diesel engines, with a maximum capacity of 6 fishermen. The boat is air-conditioned and outfitted with a full head, and comes equipped with a standard range of navigational electronics. Double Hook is a tournament-ready vessel complete with a fighting chair on board, ready for any fish that won’t give up without a fight.

Captain Humberto and his crew of Double Hook Charters, specialize in big game fishing for a range of species that Puerto Rico is known for around the world. Some of the species the offshore waters of Puerto Rico are abundant with include Billfish (both Blue and White Marlin, as well as Sailfish), Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Kingfish and many others.

The fishing grounds are located just 15 minutes away from the docks, where you are likely to come across many of the species mentioned above. All tackle and artificial bait are provided by the crew, with a wide selection of 20# to 130# Penn International reels on board to choose from. Snacks, bottled water and soft drinks are provided, along with a cooler with ice. Furthermore, Captain Humberto will cover the fishing licenses for all anglers fishing aboard Double Hook at no additional cost.

The waters he fish are some of the deepest in the Atlantic ocean! On days the fish are not biting, Capt. Humberto will not only move around to find better places, but will also stay longer on the trip free of charge if he thinks he can get something to bite. He will do everything in his power to get you on the fish in these water, which have a reputation for being unpredictable, as they are filled with migratory fish.

Everyone is welcome aboard- Capt. Humberto will show all novices the ropes and make sure you have a great first fishing experience. He recommends you begin your fishing journey on a 4 hour trip - in no time you’ll be fishing the deep on full day trips! Experienced anglers have the 12 hour trip to get far out and fish deep. There is something for everyone!

The captain and crew were great. We hooked one fish in the 4 hours on the water. We new that the fishing is not the best in August. The crew did his very best to find fish. He was very knowledgeable and he sorted hard. I would go with them again but just during a better fishing time

Thank you for the review, yes at this time of the year is the season for Blue Marlin that require lot of trolling time. Sorry that it was slow but we were getting big blues to the point we got spool out and we change the 80# for the 130# instead. Looking forward to see you again. Thanks Capt. Humberto

Captain Humberto and 1st Mate, Jaimie, were very nice.  We did not have the best weather and trolled for six hours without catching anything.  We had a one minute fight with a blue marlin, but the line quickly broke.  I don’t know if they have a fish finder, but the crew did nothing different to help us locate and catch fish.  Also, the cabin is not air conditioned, as described in the advertisement, or it was not working today, and so there was no escaping the heat.  I got seasick when I went below deck due to lack of airflow.  We took our kids, 13 and 11, who are experienced fishers but this trip was not for kids under 15.  Good price for a six hour trip if you have good weather, but I think we just had bad luck today.

Hello, thank you for your review. Yesterday was one of the best weather that we had. Here waters here are shoppy must of the time, this is the caribbean and we have no control of it. Marlin fishing is not for every one but if you really want to try just be prepare for long trolling hours. Yes the air conditioner is not in service waiting for parts for the repair. Yes the boat have a new fish finder, 2 GPS, 3 VHF, auto pilot and stereo. We did locate the fish having three blue Marlin hits I think that was very good. Well let know if you want to try again. Looking forward to have you on board again. Thanks, Capt. Humberto
