Captain Arturo has been fishing for more than 2 decades now. In addition to being a charter captain, he's also been an avid tournament angler for the last 5 years and has had his share of awards to boot. For him, the best part of his job is when he fishes with people who haven't fished before, or when someone catches a fish they've never caught before. Seeing those expressions on people's faces is much better than catching the fish himself!Certified Damn Good Guide

Captain Arturo worked hard to get us on fish but unfortunately not much was caught, leading up to the trip he went out of his way to ask if we wanted to start the morning trolling for kings because of how calm it was. Not only that, my fiancé is ...Read More terribly allergic to shellfish. When I asked him about using a different kind of bait, he also had his boat completely detailed. He was super professional, but was still goofy enough to make everyone laugh and have fun the entire time! I 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a good time on the island.
