trip description for Extreme Offshore Trip - 26' Twin Vee in Carolina

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! Feel free to bring alcoholic beverages along, all Captain Juan requests is that they be consumed in a moderate fashion. Read More

    Rafa is the man. He was on time, prepared, informative and knew how to attack tarpon. It was a slow day for the catching side of things but Rafa managed to get us on fish. My wife and I both landed a couple 4 to 5 lb fish and we hooked a bigger fish (12 to 15lb) that gave us a jumping show but came unhooked at the boat. We got to meet Bob the pelican as an added treat. A great day and I can confidently refer Rafa as a good man to fish with

    Captain Angel and his crew mate were fantastic they worked very hard to put us on fish but it didn’t work out. One high point was when we returned to the marina Captan Angel spotted some Tarpon so he baited a rod and tossed it in and then let my 7 year old Grandson reel it in. He was really excited to fight that tarpon and talked about it all night. Thank you Captain Angel for your kindness.

    Daniel S. with Juan Carlos T. of Carolina, Carolina

  • ★★★★★
    A great day on the water with a view of Old San Juan in the back ground. Boat was fully out fitted and the Captain and mate work like a well oiled machine. Great gear, fully stocked cooler, and and fish on. What more can you say?
