David will be by your side telling you the tricks of the trade the whole time. For these trips, he will also have a dive certified first mate on board. On days when you reach the Scallop limit before your trip is over, you can spend a little time swimming in the springs to cool off after.
For those that prefer classic fishing, you can book Capt. David’s other trips instead. You will use top rods and reels that won’t let you down when you hook your trophy fish. The gear is included in the price, so you don’t need to worry about bringing your own along. You will try various techniques, including trolling and jigging.
