The crew was great and very friendly. We booked this 4 hour trip taking a 4 year not knowing how he would do. He had a blast and crew was great with him. We will do a longer bottom fishing trip next time. We had had a great experience with this charter. Thanks guys!

We really enjoyed out trip.  Many in our party had never been on a salt water fishing trip before so it was a new experience.  Everyone caught fish and had a great time.  Newbies don’t have to be worried, trolling is the way to go and a great first start to off-shore fishing.  They are hooked and looking forward to booking a bottom fishing trip next time

The captain new where to take us to get the fish we were targeting (King Mackerel and Spanish Mackerel).  Even caught a couple of dolphins in the process.  He and his crew are very family friendly.  Would recommend to anyone.
