Road 187
San Juan, Puerto Rico

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!
