We booked a 4 hour trip and within minutes of leaving the marina we started catching fish. I would say that 2 white Marlin and a nice sized barracuda was pretty good for such a short trip. Would absolutely book with this crew and captain Rick’s again! Thanks

We had a great day and caught 4 good sized mahi mahi. Had some trouble at the start s our boat wouldn’t start but they got it going and openly offered to add the time we lost to our time on the water.
Yes I would book with them again
