Amazing crew and boat. Everything was as it should have been. It wasn’t fishing season but we still caught some. Great trip!

We had a great time with Captain Andy and his crew. He explained to us that we were fishing during an off season, but we could try. We caught 4 Mahis, 2 Barracuda, 1 three fin and 1 yellow fin tuna (even though a barracuda ate it while I was reeling it in and we just got the head! Captain Andy is very personable and knowledgeable. Would use him again and highly recommend!

We had a great day with Andy and his crew (Tony and Speedy) .. we had a group of 8 and everyone caught at least 2 fish each plus we landed a sailfish.. Andy was super friendly with everyone and explained everything very clear.. I would rate this higher than a 5 Stars if I could…he also took us to a great local restaurant that cooked our fish for us ...

10 members of my family chartered the boat with Captainn Andy.  They ranged in age from 15 to 80!  We all caught fish. The 2 teenage boys each caught a sailfish, which was unbelievable in itself! My 80 year mom had gone along mainly to watch, but after watching every one reel in fish, she decided she could, too! Sure enough, the next hit, she took over and reeled in a mackerel.  Before she could get the fish belt off, the line took off again!  My nephew helped Mom get the second fish in, as it was a tuna and fought a tough fight.  In all, we counted 18 fish to the boat that afternoon- keeping 5-  2 dolphin fish , 2 tuna, and 1 mackerel.  Best of all, the Captain cleaned our fish and referred us to a wonderful restaurant, “Latitude 20” that cooked it for us that night!  It was. MORE than I expected!  (And I have chartered a number of fishing charters ). Before we started the day, I told the Captain we were going to have a good fishing day!  At the end of the day, he said he hadn’t seen a day like ours in over a month!  (I hope I took that the right way! Ha, ha..). His first mate, Tony, is great and helped make our trip such a success!

Captain Andy was great and so were his crew. Great boat, friendly staff and great overall experience. We ended up catching fish and he was kind enough to take us to a local restaurant where they grilled them for us. Highly recommended trip, would definitively go again.

This was my first deep sea fishing trip. Just to save anyone grief if you are sensitive to diesel fumes or motion sickness do not go on a deep sea fishing trip. This trip was for my dad and it was well worth my suffering. Captain Andy and his crew were on point. We caught a mahi mahi that we had cooked at our hotel and a barracuda. Speaking to the people at the dock area they had a hard time finding sailfish which are apparently a coveted catch. We had a nearly 70 pound sailfish on the line and saw 7 others. Captain Andy knows where the fish are and you can tell he is passionate about fishing and making sure you catch a fish. Thank you for letting me see my dad reel in a barracuda. That was something he always wanted to do and his face was priceless. I would highly recommended Captain Andy

We had great a trip, the fishing was slow but my son and five-year old grandson each got fish to boat. Capt Andy and his crew were great, very knowledgeable,  course he has been doing this for 20 plus years. No language issues, which was good for us cause we were first timers. I would go again, if I ever get the chance. Just remember it’s fishing, a huge bonus if you get one in the boat

I caught my first sailfish, my first hatchet marlin and my first barracuda.  Went on a 3/4 day trip with Capt. Andy.  I highly recommend Capt. Andy.  Very knowledgeable and patient.

We fizzled out.  Captain, boat and guys were great.  I would highly recommend him.  I fish a lot but brought my youngest on this one and he was green.  It happens my fault.  Get the patch I didn’t.  Big water big fish..he was very accommodating and took us back.  Come prepared.  Captain Andy is a pro

Captain was cool and very upfront with us. Said it was gonna be a slow day due to conditions and we still caught a couple awesome sailfish and barracuda. A blue marlin showed itself when the deckhand reeled in a line but didnt get to catch him. I recommend this guy 100%.

It always helps when you are fortunate enough to be catching fish.  The seas were a bit rough, but Captain Andy let us make the call.  Within 10-15 minutes of leaving the marina we can “Fish On”!  At the end of the day, 5 of us had caught three Tuna, a nice Dolphin Fish, and caught and released a 55 pound Sailfin!  Captain Andy filleted the fish and delivered us to a local restaurant where we had the fish prepared, and were enjoyed by all.  To top it off, Captain Andy had a GoPro on board and combined our still photos with his footage to create a GREAT video that we can share with friends and family.  What an incredible trip!

Young William had not caught fish before.  Then that barracuda hit.  The cuda fought like a wahoo and William was in for a workout.  Well he thought he was done, but then the dolphin hit!  Great day on super flat ocean!

Had a great time with Captain Andy! Caught several different species of fish. Captain Andy and his mate worked very hard to keep all of our lines free from seaweed. They were very nice and very accommodating. Great boat and great equipment to use. We will definitely book with Captain Andy again.
