Great charter. Captain Greg and Deckhand Brian were awesome and helpful. Caught some big Red Snapper and a large Red Grouper as well as many other fish. Took them to a local restaurant and had enough fish for 3 meals for 5 of us.

It was an overall good experience. First mate Brian was very knowledgeable about all fish caught! They interacted so well with my young children! And were very accommodating to staying out longer than originally planned. The best part of the whole trip was on the way back to the dock where we had a show with the dolphins right behind the boat I will do it again when we come back.
