Enrique Sportfishing

If you are ready for a fishing adventure, then you’re ready to book a trip with Enrique Sportfishing. You’ll fish with Captain Enrique himself, a bilingual captain who has been fishing his whole life. He jumped into sportfishing nearly 3 decades ago and has never looked back. He can take you to the best places inshore and offshore for a productive and fun day for your entire group.

Hop on board his 30’ boat that can easily have 5 anglers fishing at once. The boat is decked out with full safety and navigational equipment so you can fish with peace of mind. There is a private WC and 2 coolers, one for the fish and one for the snacks and drinks.

Capt. Enrique offers his guests the option of inshore or offshore fishing. Inshore fishing will see you targeting Roosterfish, Snapper, and Grouper. Offshore you’ll be reeling in Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. On the half day trip, you can even choose to spend some time snorkeling. Let the captain know before the trip that you wish to snorkel, so he can bring the equipment.

Children over 4 are welcome on board and have life vests provided. Children particularly enjoy the inshore trip.

Included in the price are top quality rods and reels from Penn and Shimano. These won’t let you down, no matter what fish you choose to target.

The captain will also provide chips, sandwiches, water, soft drinks, and beers on all trips. You only need to bring a fishing license for the day and sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and a tip for the first mate. He’ll be working hard on your behalf during the trip. It’s customary to tip the first mate 20% of the total trip price.

Book a trip today with Enrique Sportfishing for an unforgettable fishing adventure the whole family will enjoy.

"I am a born fisherman. I worked at an early age in artisanal fishing, then years later in commercial fishing, and in 1995 I started sportfishing. The sea is my life." Since '95, Captain Enrique has been sportfishing and loving it, especially going after Roosterfish. Fishing is in his blood and is a family tradition. His father had a small fishing store where they were selling fish that they had caught together. He can't imagine doing anything else!
