The captain did his best to find the locations where everyone could catch nice size fish. The boat was comfortable for a half day trip. They text me with traffic information which was very helpful.

We had a great time and caught lots of fish on our half day trip. We were late because of construction near the marina but the captain extended our time on the water for us which was very nice. Caught a nice size Hogfish and plenty of grunts for a fish fry. The grouper were not keepers but everyone caught fish and we kept moving to keep the action going. Nice day with kids and good clean and spacious boat.
