To start off I paid for the 4 hour trip private charter and brought my wife. The “captain” was just a kid in his 20s. The first hour is the guy trying to catch bait fish so you just sit there on the boat and do nothing. That’s definitely something that should be done before the trip starts, I paid to fish. Then the kid would hit on my wife and that was extremely unprofessional. The website says they bring cold water and soda. He had very warm tiny water bottles. Unprepared. He didn’t let me fish at all. He would cast and if he caught something he would give one of us the rod. Well we caught one tarpon and the rest of the trip got nothing. I wouldn’t waste your money on them. Spend the extra money for a good fishing trip in my opinion.

Fishing was slow but it’s the fishes fault. Captain Kevin was a great host answered our questions and camaraderie with a great attitude for 7 in the morning. Caught two nice size tarpon and got bites all morning. Next time we’re back in Puerto Rico we’ll be coming back for deep sea fishing.

I told them when booking I wanted to fish “live bait” and they said that’s what they do. They provided no surface lures or any kind of bait whatsoever. They didn’t allow us to cast or fish the entire trip. They trolled the same 2 small rusty lures at the wrong speed the entire trip. Although I was promised a live bait trip, there was no bait of any kind. The “guide” told us a story of a tourist spitting on a retailer and demonstrated graphically how he would kick and beat the tourist had it happened to him. He also told us if he doesn’t like customers, he refuses to fish. I asked why he was trolling so fast and he blew me off. That was the last question I asked the entire trip. We were afraid to set off his unstable personality. We expected to have rods reels and bait provided so we could cast into mangroves for tarpon since that was what was advertised. He only provided us with water which was appreciated, on our long pitiful boat ride. Beware

Captain Luis Burgos took my wife and I on an incredible fishing trip! We were very impressed with how much work he put in to make sure we had the best trip possible. Prior to us showing up at 6am he had already dropped bait at the fishing spots we were going to to give us the best chances when we sailed out. Captain Luis took us to several locations and when the fish weren't biting, he was quick to take us to a new location where we'd have better luck. Luis was a great teacher, he made sure to explain things as we went and helped me improve my casting skills, etc. We ended up hooking three huge fish - a barracuda, a yellow jack and an African pompano! Fishing with Luis was one of the best parts of our trip and we'd highly recommend him to anyone.
