I booked a trip fishing with Omar a few years back. I wanted to fish for tarpon but didn't want the less experienced fisherman in our group to be bored so we decided on reef fishing. When the day came, the weather was pretty rough for the small(ish) boat that he had. Communication was good beforehand and he warned us... More

In advance of a trip to San Juan, I researched tarpon guides and found an article about Captain Omar Orraca in an archived issue of Saltwater Sportsman Magazine and that led me to check out his TripAdvisor reviews (all extremely positive). First of all, I just need to say that Elvia, Omar's wife, is the key to the operation -... More

I booked a half day tarpon fishing trip for my grandson and myself with captain Omar based on reviews. We were not disappointed! He is experienced, knows the waters and how the fish run. We were both novice fishermen and he guided us with great patience, explaining the steps to landing a tarpon, which we both did. He has a... More

We were on a family reunion trip in Puerto Rico back in November and five of us decided to go deep sea fishing. I had not done the research (my cousin did!), and quite frankly didn't know what to expect. This boat trip exceeded our expectations.
