Fish On Sportfishing is run by Captain Tony and his family. Also important to mention is Captain Kendar Garita, who helms the charters with all his love and dedication. Capt. Kendall heads an experienced fishing crew and helps you with various fishing techniques you'll be using during your day on the water! Fish On Sportfishing has been going for more than 10 years. It started out doing banana boat tours and cruises but switched to sportfishing because this is where the crew's passion has always been.
