Good experience, recommended even to the couple - it was my case - either go out with friends to fishing in the Bay of San Juan.

  • Great excursions
  • I was very impressed by Captain Rafa. He has incredible knowledge of the local species and where to find him. He's very safety conscious and has great center console boat with plenty of room to win the battle. I highly recommend Puerto Rico Tarpon Connection and can't wait for my next outing with Rafa!
