Captain Juan is an amazing guide. As you can see from the pictures he is all about you having fun fishing and he is genuinely excited for you when you catch a fish. He was very accommodating to our 7 year old patiently finding age appropriately sized fish for him to catch. My son caught three, I caught two and... More

Capt. Juan provided an awesome fishing experience for my 17 y/o daughter and myself. He clearly knows his stuff and how to find the fish. Very professional and great company. We have never fished for tarpon before- what a thrill. My daughter was so excited reeling in her first tarpon (bigger than mine of course). We will definitely go fishing... More

We had an amazing experience going fishing with captain Juan. We were in the lagoons at first but had no luck with the tarpons. Then the captain took us offshore where we caught a few snappers and salt fish. Captain Juan really knows his stuff - where to find fish, when to look elsewhere, and so on. It was my... More

Great trip but the fishing was slow. We booked a 6 hours trip and had a stretch of 3 hours without a bite. Ended up with 2 in the boat and 5 that we didn't land. Caught a couple of small snook as well. The fishing depends on the tides so the longer the trip the better your chances. Javier... More

My 13 year old son & I spent a morning with Captain Juan tarpon fishing. Excellent guide who works very hard to find and catch fish. We landed 3 big tarpon, including one over 100lbs. that my son fought like a pro. Highly recommend.

Two days ago we fished with Captain Juan and wow, what a morning! At first all we did was watch the tarpons roll by despite all his efforts to lure them. Juan worked continually changing bait and fishing spots. Tried live and dead bait....then BAM! My husband hooked a 100lber and the work began. Under Captain Juan's direction (and about... More

First time tarpon fishing in PR, Captain Javier did not disappoint! Very knowledgeable of tarpon, their behavior and tips to successfully get fish to the boat. Great sense of humor and showed us many wildlife of interest in and around the water - would absolutely recommend!

We have used Extreme Fishing extensively for fishing excursions. They are professional and always try hard to get us our Tarpon. Some days we nailed them..others we had had to really try hard to get bites. No matter what the conditions were they always worked hard to get us on tarpon or snook bites using many different approaches. We hooked... More
