Captain Dwight was very professional, very friendly and we would definitely book this again with or without our children.
I made some delicious Conch for us.
He also cleaned the fish we caught.
Awesome experience !!!

We had an incredible half day fishing trip.  Captain Dwight was awesome and keeps his boat spotless the entire time.  This was my first ever fishing charter (my girlfriend) and it was a great experience.  We caught about 10 fish, nothing huge but decent size and we later ate them and thoroughly enjoyed them.  We spent some time in the shallow reef area where 2 of us went swimming off the boat.  The captain’s helper dove for some conchs while at the reef and they offered them to us (I took one).  At the dock later, they took a lot of time to clean the conchs for us and filleted the fish.  If you don’t want any bones, be sure to ask them to remove them. I assumed the bones were removed and didn’t ask, so that’s my fault for assuming. 
I asked to ride up in the bridge and Capt Dwight was very personable as I asked lots of questions about the island.  We had a terrific time and would definitely book again.  As a side note, there was some confusion with the booking on the website, I guess some glitch on their end, but he more than made up for the issue on our trip by extending our time.  Glitches happen and it all ended well.
