Instructions for finding the boat were perfect.  We did not catch much, but we did catch one eatable fish that our captain cleaned and bagged for us.(the chef at our hotel cooked it for us, it was wonderful). The day was quite enjoyable. Captain Luis was very knowledgeable about fishing and the area. A very relaxing experience

Hi Tim and Barbara,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your fishing experience with us.  We are so happy that you enjoyed your fishing trip with us. We are used to catch tarpon and jacks which are catch and release, but can certainly adjust our tackle to get you that meat fish so you can have a nice dinner.

Fortunately, in this trip we managed to catch a very nice size mackerel which are excellent to eat!

Thank you so much and hope to see you again!

It was a beautiful day out in San Juan bay.  The captain and boat was a great time! Unfortunately we didn’t catch anything after 4 hours which was a bit disappointing and i’m sure independent of the actual crew.

Hi Laura,

Thank you so much for taking your time to post a review.  Unfortunately fish did not cooperated during this afternoon trip. It sometimes happen but I am very happy you still had a great time with us and that you enjoyed your time at the boat.  This day was very slow fishing for the entire fleet.
