26 ft 1 - 3 People From $167 / person

Head out with Captain Juan Carlos to battle some mighty offshore pelagic species off the coast of San Juan! On these offshore trips, you will spend most of your time trolling for Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Yellowfin Tuna. Sailfish can also be targeted a couple of months out of the year but those trips are heavily dependent on the weather so are more difficult to schedule. If Sailfish is what you're after, give us a call and we can lend advice on the best times of the year to try and schedule your trip. If conditions aren't perfect on the day of your trip, Captain Juan would be more than happy to take you out to the La Pena reef for some rod bending action and some delicious table fare, or take you to explore the back bays (where it is almost always calm) to chase Tarpon. These trips are at a discounted rate as well. No matter the conditions or the type of trip, you will always meet up with Captain Juan at the Cangrejos Yacht Club, a private marina located 5 minutes from San Juans international airport and an easy 5-8 minutes from all the major hotels and city center. All Captain Juan's trips include your expert guide (Juan himself), live bait, prepared dead bait, fishing tackle, bottled water, and sodas for your enjoyment. He provides top-of-the-line tackle from Shimano, St. Croix rods to help you land these epic fish. All Captain Juan recommends you bring are your sunglasses, hats &/or visors, and sun block!

Had an epic day fishing with Juan for Tarpon. Bite started off strong with one on just after lines in and then got slow. Changed up tactics and caught 6 more to finish up the day. My boys had a blast! I highly recommend!

Had a great time! Capt Juan is a professional captain that knows what he is doing. He was very punctual and friendly upon meeting him at the dock. The tackle was all high quality and perfect fit for the targeted species. The boat was clean and well maintained. I have fished all over the world and this is one of the few guys I’d go back to visit.
