Captain Dan did everything in his power to help our grandson catch fish. He went to several sights he knows of and was very courteous and helpful

Fishing wasn’t the best, but Captain Haley went out of his way to make sure the kids had fun. He found a lone dolphin and managed to get it to play in our wake. I will definitely book another trip with Captain Haley when we come back.

We did a half day with Captain Dan with (6) people including 2 dads and 4 kids.  Dan had over 800 known fishing holes.  Lines were in for less than a minute catching grouper and snapper.  We had 2 meals for (10) of us.  We rebooked for another trip the same week to catch monster barracuda.  All of us caught huge barracuda.  Dan was great guy and loves his job so I highly recommend.  Attaching our barracudas!
