Hi Amigos!

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 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.

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!

Absolutely amazing experience. Our captain, Luis was beyond words. He was extremely educated on the San Juan history and more than willing to share his love for the island with us! We even had the opportunity to catch a huge fish! My boyfriend can’t stop talking about how much fun he had… he said it was the best birthday gift yet! 10/10 would recommend this trip!

What an excellent trip my father and I had with Capt. Luis and First Mate Adrian!  Having fished for many years in the northeast US for other types of fish but never in the Caribbean for tarpon/kingfish/Jack Crevalle, we learned a lot from Capt. Luis who was very knowledgeable, professional, and just great company on the water.  We caught two nice tarpon, one about sixty pounds and had maybe a half dozen or so other bites that day fishing in San Juan Bay.  Capt. Luis knew the area, techniques to land tarpon, and had all around great boating sense.  You could tell Luis and Adrian really enjoyed fishing and putting their clients onto fish.  All around outstanding trip, great charter!  I have nothing but the highest praise.  I will be booking other trips with Luis and Adrian when I return to Puerto Rico in the future.
