Based in Palmas Del Mar, Curate Fishing Charters offers amazing fishing adventures year round. Captain Alberto quit his 9-5 job to pursue the dream of being a full time fishing guide. He has fished and spearfished all his life in almost all of the main destinations over the world including, Florida Keys, Panama, Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Dominican republic to name a few.

Captain Alberto takes techniques learned from his trips and learns to apply them to future quests. Each trip, he collects data on water temperature, moon phases, chlorophyll concentration, times the tide changes, and fish migration patterns. After years of collecting this information, the odds of being in the right place and the right time increase drastically.

You’ll be fishing on a 26’ center console that accommodates up to 4 guests.

Inshore trips are more for novice anglers as there tends to be more action. In one day, you’ll have the option to troll, vertical jig, deep drop, and bottom fish. If the fish don’t want to bite on the troll, you can opt for another type of fishing. This style of fishing is never monotonous because of the constant change. Main targets are Barracuda, King Mackerel, Tuna, and Jacks on the troll. Bottom/Deepdropping Blackfin Snapper, Queen Snapper, Yelloweye Snapper, Yellowtail, and Grouper.

Offshore trips are for hardcore anglers, ready to wait for their bite for hours. You can go after Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Marlin. And as a special treat, there’s an extended adventure that specifically targets Swordfish.

All fish can be either scaled whole or fileted. You can bring sunblock, snacks, and Dramamine if you get sea sick.

Join Curate Fishing Charters and feel the adrenaline rush you’ve been waiting for!

    The best type of fishing for those looking with less fishing experience. There is more action and short runs. I start the morning trolling for Barracuda, Jack, and King Mackerel. Depending on the conditions, you'll have the option to vertical jig, bottom fish with chicken rigs, or use electric reels for deep dropping. The high success rate on catching rock hind Yellowtails and Grouper, and 3-4 different species of deepwater Snapper.

It can be combined with vertical jigging with bottom fishing for groupers and snappers. Offshore fishing is mainly trolling for pelagic species such as Mahi Mahi, Tunas, and Wahoo.

    Offshore trips are for those who like longer periods of waiting with larger fish. Offshore trips are a 10-22 mile run to offshore seamounts that come up from 5,000 feet to 200. The peak holds bait that attracts Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin. 3 person maximum on this trip
  • Private trip
    10 Hour Trip – Daytime Swordfishing
    Low rate deposit non-refundable
    10 Hour Trip, starts at 7:00 AM
    $1,400
    Daytime Swordfishing trips are for extreme anglers that can go 10-11 hours without a bite. I am the only captain to offer daytime Swordfishing trips in Puerto Rico. It's 14 miles run to the spot and two rods are fished in **hidden content** feet of water where they spend time in the day. Pound for pound they are the hardest fighting fish in the ocean often referred to as gladiators. It's not uncommon to fight them for 3-4 hours.

I've always enjoyed the water, from fishing off the shore as a youngster to traveling across the world in exotic locations as an adult. On the ocean, every day is different. It's a never-ending puzzle game in which the components are wind, current, moon phases, and water temperature. You must understand them and make judgments about which targets to pursue. Nothing makes me feel more present than tackling this challenge on a daily basis; it's my art form.
