As if all that fishing wasn’t enough fun, when we got to Isla Grande there was another little adventure waiting at the dock. My captain was the Crowley docking master here in PR a while back and he’s familiar with a lot of local mariners – so one of the San Juan pilot boats came by this morning and I got to go for a ride around the harbor! They even let me operate the boat – it’s a cozy little 34-footer with enough room for two very powerful engines and about 6 people max. The operator and the engineer probably didn’t understand half of what I said, but they were super friendly and very welcoming, as Puerto Ricans tend to be.
