We called on Friday, and we were put on Captain Johnathan's boat on Saturday. He was very patient and made sure we were in the best spots possible. We landed all 3 fish that bit, and we had a great time talking with him. He had water and Coke for us, he told us about his life and his history... More

We had a great day fishing with Captain Pantoja! He was in no hurry to end the day and was very knowledgeable about the fish and fishery in general. We had a mix up with scheduling and Capt. Armando worked with us to fix it. Would highly recommend a day with these guys.

We had a wonderful afternoon on the water with Randy as our guide and had only 3 bites but we landed 2 of the 3 fish and my daughters each had a moment they will remember forever! The torrential downpour was no problem since Randy had rain gear at the ready. He is personable and very knowledgeable about the fish... More

I selected Puerto Rico Magic Tarpon based on prior reviews and I was not disappointed. Captain Randy took us out on two afternoons. The boat was ready,... More

Comfortable and very stable boat and fishing conditions. The guide was very professional and knowledgeable. This was our first time fly fishing for tarpons. We saw and connected with a lot of tarpons, and we caught some trophies! This exceeded our expectations!

Great day out with David. This guy knows his stuff. We got tarpon on the fly while the bait guys got blanked. Best part is that I was back at the hotel before my wife woke up.

To start out I am a full-time fishing guide from Charleston, SC. I love what I do and that is why it is my profession. I booked a charter with Magic Tarpon through Capt. Armando and it was a great experience from the start. He was very honest with me and was willing to answer my million questions because I... More
