My husband and I went with our 25 year old disabled son, this was planned for him to do something he has always wanted to do. Not everyone is patient with our son, he has some mobility and cognitive issues. Captain Blake was awesome! He was so kind and patient with our son, he helped him out when our son was struggling but also treated him like one of the guys which made our son feel very capable and he loved every minute of this trip! Captain Blake is also very knowledgeable and has a laid back and friendly personality. Our focus was really just to have our son do something he has dreamed of and he had a blast, he will talk about this for years to come! We may start planning our next trip back in the next year or two and we would definitely book a tour with Captain Blake again!

The girls had a great time and they outfished the rest of us, we all enjoyed out outing and had a lot of fun fishing, Captain Harris was great and we are hoping to go out again with him very soon! He works hard to find fish and has tons of patience for kids.

Capt. Blake really knows how to take care of his customers. Very professional and knowledgeable on how to catch fish. Every spot we went to ,we were reeking in fish. We took our 70yr old father out with us and he had a blast. Doesn’t matter what age you are Capt. Blake will get you hooked up

Hey Thanks a lot! You guys were a great crew and I had a good time fishing with you. Little choppy in the Gulf that day but I blame the weatherman.Steve Harrelson recommends The Red Dawn-Gulfside
