Our group had a great time with Captain Dan and his mate. They provided a safety briefing and details prior to our departure from port. They explained that the fish were hit and miss and they will do their best to get us some bites! We actually caught a Spanish Mackeral which was out of season! Our Captain and mate suggested that we try shark fishing! Our crew wanted to try caughting sharks! That’s when the real fun began! We were able to caught sharks, take pictures, and caught at least 15-20 sharks! The trip was a fun, easy, relaxing, and comfortable charter! I would recommend the Captain, the mate, and the boat! All members were helpful, knowledgeable, and worked hard towards meeting our expectations. Thanks Dan and Dustin! We will be booking another charter for Marlin next year with your team and services!

The captain and mate were honest and straight forward on what to expect fishing on our trip. The boat and equipment were top notch and what we expect when going out on a charter. We definitely will book another charter with them.
