Half day trip. On fish minutes after leaving the dock and everywhere we stopped. Hooked up several times. Caught a bucket list tarpon. Very friendly and great with the kids. Wife and kids loved the trip. Highly recommended. Thanks Captain Paco.

My wife and I booked a half day to soak in the mangrove experience and hopefully catch some fish. The bite seemed slow but Captain Paco persisted and we eventually connected with some tarpon and snook. Although we love catching fish, the experience was punctuated...More

Capt. Paco is very professional and can find, hook, and get fish on the boat. No other boat was catching fish. Capt. Paco helped us catch a 80-100 lb tarpon.

I visit Humacao every June, and was thinking about doing some fishing this year for something different. Would the peacock or rainbow bass be something good to do with my 9 year old son? My wife or other kids may want to come as well, the price would be $350 for the half day for 2 to how many people?

Yes you and your son will love to catch peacock bass,tiger bass,rainbow bass and African cichlids. The $350.00 rate is good up to 3 people to the boat and captain. Regards
How many people can you accommodate for the $350. Can you hook us up with another couple for 1/2 day? We're very interested in going! Lisa

know how many can fit (it was just two of us). Call Cap'n Paco. He'll fill you in. He's a great guy.
