Extreme Fishing Puerto Rico

If you’re ready to start fishing in San Juan, we’ve got you covered with Extreme Fishing Puerto Rico. With Captain Juan Carlos Torruella at the helm, you’ll have a knowledgeable and experienced guide with over 40 years of fishing the waters of Puerto Rico. In 2013 Capt. Juan was voted in Salt Water Sportsman magazine as one of the Top 50 charter captains in the world.

Inshore we target Tarpon and Snook at La Torrecilla and San Jose lagoons.
Off the reefs, we target Kingfish, Cero Mackerel, Snappers, Barracuda, and Jacks.
Offshore we target Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna.

During the trips you might be live baiting, dead baiting, spin fishing, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area. Capt. Juan Carlos also offers fly fishing trips and has all of the fly fishing equipment necessary for his customers.

Capt. Juan Carlos believes in teaching kids to fish while they’re young, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, Capt. Juan has them for you. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets cranky on an empty belly!

Your vessel for the day is a 26’ TwinVee Catamaran with space for 4 passengers. It has outriggers, downriggers, and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. All bait and tackle are included.

Your fishing license for the day is covered by Extreme Fishing PR.

Some essentials to bring are sunglasses, and sunblock (non-spray). Water and sodas are included. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Capt. Juan Carlos runs trips out of San Juan aboard a 26’ TwinVee Catamaran. These waters are known for Tarpon and Mahi Mahi and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're trolling or jigging. With extensive knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
