About the Captain

Born and raised around the local waters of San Juan, PR. and have been fishing since I was in diapers. I started fishing with aluminum cans as a fishing pole and after catching my first fish I was hooked and it was with a Sardine. Now, that's the bait of choice for our inshore outings! Lol. From there I gradually graduated to fishing inshore and deep sea fishing as a USCG Certified 100 ton Captain and as a tournament angler. Experiences like beeing part of fishing teams with multiple 1st places wins and being Director of some of the main fishing tournaments of the island, will contribute towards building memories for you, your friends and/or family that will last a lifetime. Now when looking back, feeling pretty grateful and decided to found the Caribbean Fishing Academy with the purpose of teaming up with great people to help get kids off the streets and promote a better quality of life through fishing. Part of your booking is going towards this good cause. Gracias amigos!

Had a great full-day fishing adventure with captain Luis. It wasn’t exactly the best fishing day, but Captain Luis took us to five different locations throughout the day. My husband and I ended up catching 2 barracuda, 1 zero mackerel, and hooked several very large tarpons that we were unable to successfully get to the boat. Captain Luis was excellent and I highly recommend this charter service!

On my trip I decided to carry my two sons fishing and didn’t know of anyone locally so I started searching for a charter.  I ran across Fishing Academy and felt comfortable with the gentleman that I spoke with so I signed up for an early morning trip.  They sent an Uber to pick us up and the Captain was waiting on us to go when we arrived. 

We left the dock and meet a smaller boat for our fresh bait on our way out.  Now I have to name our captain, Captain Luis Burgos!  He was awesome and made the trip so enjoyable.  On our way he told us about some of the history of San Juan and of the sites that we passed on the way out.  Out of all of the fishing charters that I have been on, Captain Burgos has been my favorite.  He was patient, knowledgeable and most importantly… He put us on the fish. 

I really can’t say enough about Caribbean Fishing Academy and Captain Burgos!!  I would highly recommend this company and Captain to anyone that takes a trip to San Juan.  I know that when I go back I will definitely take another fishing trip with them.

This is a must do ! Very professional exciting relaxing and amazing experience. Luis the Captain truly cares about his clients. He arranged the Uber for me to and from the fishing trip. Also while on the fishing trip he really has great knowledge and experience with the water and the spots that have the best striking fish. If your not sure if its worth it your going to be disappointed if you choice a different company. Luis is the only Captain i will choose to go fishing with in Puerto Rico and i have fished many many places around the World. this is the Captain you want guiding your Trip.

Thanks Again Luis God Bless.
