About the Captain

Luis Burgos
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Member since September 2015
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!

Celebrating my husband’s big birthday and this adventure made it truly unforgettable. The moment Capt. Luis greeted us we felt comfortable and knew we chose wisely.
From finding the elusive bait to hooking and landing the numerous beautiful Mahi Mahi, this was a true adventure with a knowledgeable and truly gifted guide. We thank you Captain Luis for making our first trip to Puerto Rico so very special! Que Dios lo bendiga hoy y siempre.
Muchas gracias !!!

Hi Justin. Hope that you and your guest are doing great and we are grateful for have chosen CFAC.  Thank you for taking the time to leave us a pretty good review.  We didn’t had a clue,  that you where so frustrated after Capt.  Franco went out of his way and manage to put you guys on fish, producing you 5 good bites with a chance to catch nice Tarpon. He really tried hard to make a difference on that particular and unusual slow morning as other boats with much less chances did expressed at the dock.  Sorry we where not able to meet your expectations but again we are grateful for moments like this and for Fishing since they both are beneficial to keep us humble and becoming better persons when facing, people, things and situations that we can’t simply control. We wish you and your family the best.

Grateful for allowing us to serve you and we wish you the best for you and your love ones.

We caught some live bait and used it to catch a Tarpon. This was an over all great experience. He let us bring my six month old baby, which was wonderful.
