Go Tarpon Puerto Rico - 20’ Boat

The lagoons of San Juan are often considered among the best spots in the region to catch a Tarpon. They abound with fish - not only the Silver King, but a variety of other inshore game species, such as Snook, Jacks, Ladyfish and many more. Regardless of your age or skill level, Tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico is certainly an experience you won’t soon forget.

Go Tarpon Puerto Rico is located only 5 to 15 minutes from the major hotel area. The prolific nearby lagoons are alluring to visiting anglers looking to test their skills or have a shot at their first Tarpon. Captain Rafael is a USCG licensed guide with over 25 years of fishing experience. He speaks both English and Spanish, and specializes in fly and light tackle fishing in the productive inshore waters of Puerto Rico.

You’ll be fishing on a 20’ center console vessel, powered by a single Yamaha engine. The vessel is equipped with a standard set of navigational and fish finding equipment, such as GPS, radio and Fishfinder, and can accommodate fishing parties of up to 4 anglers. Soft drinks and water are also provided for the trip, complete with a cooler filled with ice.

All fishing equipment for your inshore fishing excursion is supplied by the captain, along with both live and artificial bait. If you prefer fly fishing, an appropriate fly fishing equipment will be made available by Captain Rafael upon request. Fishing licenses for all anglers fishing with Go Tarpon PR are provided at no additional charge.
