At the south-east coast of Puerto Rico, we go sport fishing at the Continental Shelf and the Two Sea Mounts. For better results we recommend the Sea Mount in the deep blue waters of our Caribbean Sea. For light tackle (sport fishing) we go to shallow waters next to the resort.

is about 5 to 12 miles  out from Palmas del Mar; with 20 - 30 minutes cruising time. It is a good place to go for the 4 hours trip and for a first time experience.  It is about 200 - 2000 ft. deep.

 

  • THE SEA MOUNTS:               

Both  sea mounts are located about 17miles out from Palmas del Mar. It is recommended for the 6 or 8 hours trip. It takes about  40  minutes cruising time. The Sea Mounts are about 200-4000  feet deep.

 

  • LIGHT TACKLE (SPORT FISHING) AREA:      

Is about 2 miles out from Palmas del Mar. This is a good area for kids and adults. It is about 40 to 200 feet deep.

SEA CONDITIONS

 

 

The Captain will keep you informed before the trip about the weather conditions. The average weather is about 3 to 4 feet  sea, mostly sunny. Having a power catamaran, we provide a better stability;  thus a more comfortable trip than a monohull.

Take a left on  Coral Way (in front of the La Jolla complex), turn right at the end, drive until reaching stop sign, take a left and park. Go into Anchor's Village, look for Slip #14, Matt's Cat. Next to Shipyard @ Palmas.
