Captain Andy provides all the tackle, bait, safety gear, and licenses, meaning you should only bring the snacks and drinks of your choice. Keep in mind that besides regular trips, you can have a customized trip ranging from 6 to 10 hours which will include a combination of any of the water activities and fishing styles you want.
