We had an awesome time with Capt. Tristram and 1st Mate Richie. Both of them were very professional, knowledgeable, and fun. They had us catching fish in no time, we literally were catching fish as quickly as you could get the line out. In total, we caught 26 nice size yellowfin snappers and 2 barracudas. My 2 boys loved it! We plan to come back next year and we’ll definitely be planning a trip with them.
