We booked Captain Travis on super short notice after our other charter fell thru. He was quick to respond and very thorough with upfront expectations. He was very well educated and experienced in his field, yet didn’t talk the entire time like most captains, which was refreshing. Very sociable and friendly tho. Loved his boat which can go just about anywhere in up to 3 inches of water.  Great day overall.

We had a great experience with skinny water charters! The captain was friendly, experienced and helpful. We were on fish within the first 15 minutes of the trip and landed sea trout, snook, and redfish. Overall awesome time.
