Santiago is an awesome guide. He put us on the fish and we had a blast. He’s our new guide any time we’re in Puerto Rico or the Dominican!

Great captain; extremely knowledgeable. He works hard to make sure you have the best experience and catch that fish you’ve always wanted. The boat and gear are top notch. I have done three trips with him and can’t wait to return to PR and go fishing again!
