My wife and I had an outstanding time with our guide Luis. We caught several fish and learned so much about the San Juan area on our 2 hour Eco Tour.

Went to Puerto Rico to fish offshore and help the local economy by putting money into it. Talked to Luis on phone several times he advised that the weather and seas were not good but within reason he would let me decide if I wanted to fish offshore or inshore. The day of our trip was very bad weather, wind and rain very high waves offshore. So we made it an inshore trip in the bay, Luis worked and worked and worked and we caught fish and had a great time. Luis also pointed out places to go and things to do on island. Luis is a very nice honest guy and a person who loves fishing. Thanks again Luis hope to see you again when weather clears up and we can get offshore.

Luis Burgos did a amazing job working with me ( a 10 year old boy). I learned a lot about casting and being patient to catch fish. We caught 4 different kinds of fish and I caught Tarpon, Spanish mackerel, and Jack Crevalle. I would give the Carabbean Fishing Acadamy a Superior Rating. My grandpa and grandma agree totally with this rating

My son came to visit from California and we decided to take him fishing. My wife spent some time looking and we decided to go with Luis. We are glad we did. Not only is Luis a great guy he is easy to converse with and very patient but he is a great fisherman. We aren't the best fishermen but we were catching fish in no time. He got us on the fish and we had a lot of fun. I highly recommend Luis. I've been on a few other fishing trips where you're pretty much on your own and if you don't know how to fish and bait your line you just sit there. This isn't the case with Luis. It's more of a personal experience. Luis is the business owner and wants you to have fun and we did.
