“No fish, mixed experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I'll start off by saying that had we gotten some fish or even a bite for that matter then it'd be more likely that this review got 3 stars instead of 2. But even then the experience was very mixed. When we first arrived the captain read us the standard bill of rights, and took our payment for the trip. After that we proceeded to not hear from the captain at all even after arriving back at the dock. The deckhand was friendly and sociable on the way out, talking some about Puerto Rico and some about the fishing. Once out it was quite rough, the captain had warned of the swells ahead of time describing them as 4-5 foot and that it was a normal day, this was closer to 10 foot, so be prepared for a few to get seasick if this is a normal day. The catch-less or even bite-less day was further summed up by us arriving back early than our fully booked time (4 hr charter) in the boat slip and off the boat under 4 hrs than we arrived there.

“Big Time Fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Fished in their 24' Grady White on Nov. 24, 2013. Capt. Alex picked us up at our hotel. We left the dock on time and Capt. Alex and 1st mate Brian were knowledgeable and friendly.

After a short run we started fishing and picked up tuna and then to my delight I caught a sailfish and did my friend. These guys know where to go and the price of the have day trip was very reasonable. We had a great half day.

If you never caught a sailfish, what an experience. Mine walked on its tale across the water at leaf 4 times but it seemed like 15.

We will go again with Capt. Alex on our next visit to PR.
