Captain Steve and boat owner/first mate Rob were excellent guides. They ensured we had the best time possible out on the water. Captain Steve and Rob were able to get us hooked up within 10 mins of dropping a line.  Between the nearly forty dolphin/mahi mahi and several king fish, came the chit chat of genuinely good people. The experience was second to none and I guarantee we will be using their charter again.
