Captain Luis Burgos was great. He’ll put you on the fish. My young son caught a 50lb tarpon. His first big game fish. Great instruction from Cpt. Burgos. Highly recommend this trip if you’re in San Juan.

This trip was excellent. Luis was on time and put us on the water right away. In addition seeing El Morro from the water game a brand new perspective to seeing the island. Highly recommend this to anyone considering fishing on their trip.
