Castillo Tours is all about finding the fish, having tight lines, and tons of action in the bountiful waters of Puerto Rico. Head to the San Juan Bay Harbor, hop on board, and in just 25 minutes, you will be 2 to 5 miles offshore fishing the “Blue Marlin Alley.”

If you are looking for something different on your next vacation, there is a trip for you. Any passionate angler should “taste” these productive waters at least once in their lives. They are home to various pelagic species depending on the season, such as the likes of Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna.

The ‘Legend’ is a beautiful 48’ Hatteras that is conveniently located at San Juan Bay Marina. She comes powered by twin motors and has plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. The Legend was overhauled in 2015 and is rigged with electronics and professional accessories. She features all the comforts of home, including an air-conditioned cabin with a TV, a refrigerator, restroom, kitchen, sleeping area.
