Trip was awesome. We went out on the clock. Captain was ready to go, went out directly to the good spot. Bait was of great quality (a bit short but we were going through them like candy). Super friendly and funny, he understands we are going for a good time (some captains get a bit upset if you don’t know how to cast etc., Paco took the time to teach the less experienced ones).
Overall, if you want to go have a great time while actually fishing, book this one.

As a plus, he is fully bilingual.  Speaks Spanish if you are visiting from Spanish speaking countries or English equally good.

If I ever go back to SPIsland, I’ll definitely try to book Paco. We almost hit our limit!

He put me on the fish and I had a blast! Came in with beautiful fish, and felt like I had spent the day with a great friend. Highly recommended and I’ll be sharing Captain Paco’s info with all my friends!
