Hi Amigos! 

Caribbean Fishing Academy welcomes you aboard to experience the stunning and productive fishing grounds of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Goal:
To show you the best of Puerto Rico’s consistently productive fishing grounds by adjusting to the different bite patterns and customizing your trip to suit you, whether you are a first time fisherman or woman, or a pro looking for a trophy catch. This means you will have a worthwhile day out in one of the most beautiful and unique bay systems in the Caribbean. The company will strive to make your day as productive and fun as possible, potentially making it the most enjoyable and memorable part of your vacation. This is their way of saying thank you.

The Captain:
A OUPV 100 ton USCG Certified Captain who has more than 35 years experience. A professional and knowledgeable captain, he founded his charter fishing business as a way of funding his non profit organisation that provides fishing instruction to kids to keep them off the streets. His proven hands-on curriculum has been showing great results since he started the charity in 2013.

The Boat:
The most spacious and comfortable tournament-grade center console boat on the bay. This 20 ft Catamaran features a convenient T-Top for shade and twin engines for security and speed. Garmin and Lowrance electronics are fitted on board to ensure a quality sport and/ or recreational fishing experience.

The Location:
On the same bay where the cruise ships dock, just six miles away from the San Juan International Airport and within easy reach of Isla Verde and Condado.

What’s Included:
Your trip will include full insurance, free transportation, quality tackle, fishing licenses, bait, a cooler with plenty of ice and refreshments for your trip.  Snacks and food are available upon request. 

Giving back:
Part of your proceeds will benefit the Caribbean Fishing Academy’s community outreach efforts and mission through fishing.

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!

Captain Luis was an amazing guide. Hit a tarpon and landed one and at one point had 5 fish on the lines at once.
