Went out for a half day trip with Capt. Rodney. He was very professional and provided everything we needed. He had us catching Snapper as soon as we dropped our lines in the water. Im looking forward to the next time and can’t wait to see what we catch next. Book a trip today, you won’t regret it!

We had an amazing time. Captain Rodney and Ben were great. They baited our hook, removed the fish we caught and cleaned the fish. The boat was nice and clean, we didn’t need anything everything was provided for us. Captain Rod and Ben were very interactive with us. We not only enjoyed the fishing, but the conversation as well. We definitely recommend Olivia J Charters.

Had a load of fun out with Captain Rodney this past weekend!  Three of my nine-year olds and grandpa had a blast with pulling up lots of snapper with the first drop of the lines.  Captain Rodney was great about baiting and dealing with the numerous reel backlashes all the while.  Will definitely head out with Captain Rodney again on our next fishing adventure!
