Backwater Tarpon Fishing PR
One of our top picks in San Juan . Backwater Tarpon Fishing Charters specialize in TARPON FISHING using light tackle and fly fishing. Tarpon are one of the most sought-after game fish and the Backwater Lagoons are the best place to find them!
If you are looking to fish for tarpon? Don’t look further! Our location is the mecca for tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico. We recently moved from San Juan Bay to the Laguna Torrecilla/San Jose which got ranked one of the top 10 spots for tarpon fishing. Why? Our vast lagoon is perfect for marine life, providing infinite sources of bait all year round for our resident fish. Contrary from San Juan Bay which you would encounter average of 15-25lb tarpon, in the lagoons we encounter 60-90lb tarpon. So get your big boy pants on and come fishing with Backwater Tarpon PR!
5 minutes away from SJU airport and 10-12min from Condado/Old San Juan/Isla Verde. Our main battle grounds include the Laguna San Jose and the Laguna Torrecilla, known worldwide for their massive and vast amount of tarpon living on these areas!
You’ll be fishing on a 19 ft. long bay boat which can accommodate groups of up to 4 fishermen per trip. Flats boats are the perfect vessel for tarpon fishing as the flat deck gives you the freedom to walk effortless around the boat while minimizing the risk of falling and/or getting the line to touch the boat or getting tangled with the engine. The boat is outfitted with a conventional range of navigational technology and fish finding equipment, including GPS, Fishfinder and radio.
Fishing license and all the appropriate fishing tackle for your inshore trip is supplied by the Backwater team, complete with both artificial and live bait. Snacks and beverages (bottled water and soft drinks) are also provided for your enjoyment.
We recommend to try our 4HR Tarpon Fishing charter for better chances on catching that dream tarpon you have been dreaming for!

This is my second trip with Capt. Felix and this one was even better than the first trip. More Tarpon and much, much bigger.
We managed to get 4 tarpon all above 60 pounds and one monster estimated above 100 pounds.
Great day fishing, highly recommend
