Captain Omar and Elvia know their fishing on the North Coast. Caught wahoo and Mahi. Half day offshore caught a few fish morning after storm previous night . Calm seas and cloudy. Omar was very easy going and conversational with us and shared what he was doing with the baits and techniques for fishing weed lines. Recommend you call them.... More

After seeing an article about kayak fishing for tarpon in Sport Fishing magazine, I decided to give it a try. I have been kayak fishing for over 8 years now, and from what I have seen, this mothership concept for kayak fishing is pretty new. Consequently, I expected a number of hiccups going into this. It was apparent within the... More

My family and i had a fantastic day fishing for (and catching) Giant Tarpon in the lagoon in San Juan. We hooked plenty of fish and managed to land six between us ranging from about 40lbs to one over 90lbs. A professional, well run operation with good quality tackle. Captain Omar knows the lagoon and the fish well and we... More

We had a great experience with Caribbean Outfitters. The staff was very friendly and seemed as passionate about fishing as us. We caught tuna, mahi-mahi and reeled almost a 200 lb. marlin. What a great experience and would highly recommend them.

We went tarpon fishing with Omar the first day.......even though the tarpon didn't want to cooperate we still had a blast! We caught one and had many bites. The second day we went billfishing with Omar and Elvia. Again, had a great time with both of them. Omar is very knowledgable, but the billfish would not appear. Not all was... More

We were recommended to go call Omar at Caribbean outfitters when we were asking around the locals about deep sea fishing. He had us ready to go the next morning after one phone call. His wife and he make a great team and they spent a couple hours rigging fresh bait that night in preparation of our trip so we... More

So every time I travel I like to do something local that is fun and well done. Omar is the owner and guide of this fishing operation, call him, he answers (787) 396-8346. A soft spoken incredibly knowledgeable guide. He will take you out to sea for big fish or my preference, into the back water lagoons for magnificent Tarpon... More
