Best Deep Sea Fishing Charters in Puerto Rico

Deep Sea Fishing in Puerto Rico

Constantly ranking among the best places in the world for deep sea angling action, Puerto Rico is well worth a visit. You’re just a short journey from the Atlantic Ocean’s deepest point, with underwater mounds, the continental shelf, and an area called “Marlin Alley” all within reach. Hop aboard a Puerto Rico deep sea fishing charter and see what it’s all about.
 
We mentioned “Marlin Alley,” so it’ll be no surprise to hear what tops each angler’s wishlist in Puerto Rico. Blue and White Marlin can be found around this productive island, with Sailfish and Swordfish action also possible. You’ll get a shot at Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and three types of Tuna too. It all depends on when you come and visit!
 
Summer is peak Marlin time, but that’s also when the rainy season hits Puerto Rico, so the waters can get choppy. Come in early spring or late fall and experience a Billfish frenzy. Sailfish season kicks off while Blue and White Marlin are still available, along with the rest of the all-star cast who can be found year-round.
 
A trip aboard a Puerto Rico deep sea fishing charter is not for the faint of heart, however. While you can land some prized species in just half a day, you’ll want a full day to really make the most of it. That means getting your sea legs ready – not to mention your strength! You’re in for a serious workout to land these monster creatures.

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t land a lot of fish. Enjoy the hook ups as much as possible. Hard fish to get landed.

6 hour or more trip. This allows for a great time with zero rush. The Captain really utilized the time to search for the right spots and delivered!

Rough water with 7' - 10' rollers as the norm. Also....it's called fishing....not catching. We caught fish, I would bet catching odds are higher with Captain Jose than most captains. Out of 3 boats out we were the only boat to catch! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
