We had an awesome day today! Captain Freddie Z and 1st Mate Josh were working their tails off all day. When we parked our vechicle, Josh was there getting our coolers out of our truck and onto the boat and likewise after the trip. Captain Freddie put us on top of the fish all day and Josh was taking fish off our hooks and rebaiting our hooks in the blink of an eye. I would highly recommend fishing on this boat, as it has plenty of room for 6 people and with a crew that we had, we were very well taken care of. We caught so many red snapper! Lots of Bubba Sea Bass! Limited out on King Fish! Our fish were cleaned at the dock after we got in and plenty of ice was givin to us for our ride home. Thank You Capt. Freddie Z and and Josh! We will do business again.

My husband, son and daughter in law really enjoyed our trip with Captain Freddie Z and First Mate Josh.  They made sure we enjoyed the trip and made it fun.  He has great knowledge of where to find the fish.  We caught ten beautiful king mackerel’s and several other fish.  We took the half day trip but intend to book an 8 hour trip on our next visit to Florida.  The boat was excellent with lots of room and very clean.

Freddie and Keith would both amazing to our party of 6. We all ended up catching something with some having multiple catches. They explained everything to us and helped us when we needed it especially the children. I would recommend to all. Great first time experience and we will definitely book them again.
