We’ve been on countless number of charter fishing trips around the world and none were even remotely close to being as awesome as this one.  The weather and seas were perfect and Capt. Don put us right on the fish!  Caught our limit quickly and then played catch and release!  So much action our arms are sore today!  First Mate Matt kept rods ready to go, made sure the fish didn’t pull us in (LOL) and cleaned our catch at the end of the day!  These two made these two ladies feel right at home and helped us enjoy the day!  Will be going out with them again!!

This trip was our families first experience at fishing in saltwater. Everyone in the family fished, and had a good time, even our little girly girl was excited to fish and I think caught more than anyone else on the boat. We really didn’t know what to expect, and didn’t catch as many fish as we thought we would, but I think part of that was due to the weather. However, the Captain and 1st mate were very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot. We would definitely recommend this trip, boat, and crew to all seasoned fisherman, and first timers like us. Thanks to the crew of SeaPlay V for a great day at sea !!
