Background
Osprey Sportfishing is owned by captain William Markowitz and operated by Jose, an experienced local captain. He has more than 30 years of experience under his belt. His first mate is his brother, and his wife prepares every meal for the trip, so it's a perfect family business. If you do not catch some big fish, the captain will take you closer to the shore, so you'll never return empty-handed.
