Captain Sean actually called me a few days in advance to inform me an opening had come in a day earlier than our planned trip that would allow us to keep the red snapper we caught. We payed for a 6 hour trip but Seam kept out an extra hour so we could troll for some King mackerel. He put us on the fish and we had a blast. He’s a great guy and so is the first mate who sadly I can’t recall his name. Had a great time swapping stories and shooting the breeze, along with some jaw jerkin. We will definitely be calling him again next year!

Had a wonderful fishing trip. They did everything possible to make us comfortable and put us on the fish. Very friendly guys. I’ll be looking them up when I go back to PCB.

Captain Bob was extremely nice and put us on the fish, which is what one should expect.  However, the boat was advertised as having air conditioning, a below deck quarters for relaxing if some in our party became tired or sick, and a bathroom.  Now the boat we went on did have a bathroom, but was a cubby hole setup, and we had a female fisherman that made it hard for her to go to the restroom.  Also, there was times, more often than not, that the captain only permitted 4 anglers to fish due to squalid.  That’s all fine and good,  but I feel a reduced rate would be in order, as we paid for 6 fishermen.  All in all a decent experience, but not as advertised

Unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish, however Captain Sean and deck hand Dillan were excellent. They were very friendly and tentative to our needs and wants. The captain truly cares about his guests.  I highly recommend Captain Sean for any fishing trips.

We had a good time!  Captain Bob was knowledgeable and knew where to find fish. We were able to see dolphins and caught 4 Snappers and a King Mackerel.  We had enough fish to feed our family of 13 delicious fish tacos for dinner that night. We would definitely go again, but next time we would like to go for a whole day.

Sean is super nice and knowledgable.  Unfortunately due to the rough sea conditions we had to turn back at about 1 1/2 mile out (6+ foot seas)- although we didn’t get to fish- I really enjoyed meeting him and appreciate how hard he tried to make something work out for our family. A+ Experience All around. We will use this company again next year!

Bumped to smaller boat due to repairs on 30’, but we caught several snapper and amberjack.  Captain Mike put us on fish right away.  He kept us out a little longer to help compensate for change in boats.

I booked the charter on Friday for Sunday because it was showing an opening. Soon after I called the contact person and they said that the waters were rough and it would have to be pushed back a day or so. The next day it got pushed back again. Then Monday we set up a time for Wednesday but a hour before the scheduled time he called and said that the boat was running behind that it would have to be later that afternoon but he would call and let me know what time in about 20-30 minutes. Well after 1.5 hours I called back and he still didn’t know anything. He tried to schedule another date for me but we couldn’t because we was leaving the next day and it wouldn’t matter anyway because at that point I couldn’t trust that it wouldn’t get pushed back again. The only good thing that came out of it was that I did get my deposit back.

Having been on numerous Charters out of Chatham, MA and Point Judith, R.I., my expectations were high. Captain Bob and Captain Sean didn’t disappoint me. The day started slowly but the Captains worked hard to get us to locations where we not only caught our limit of Red Snappers but very good size Snappers. Both Captains were personable, very helpful and genuinely concerned about making sure we had a good time. I now live in FL and plan to continue to use Captain Sean as our Charter of choice. My only recommendation to future fisherman is that the boat works well for a party of 4 but might be a little tight with a party of 5 / 6 which is why I rated equipment & boat 4 stars.

We gave this customer the option of chartering on a smaller boat due to a repair on the boat he booked, they elected to fish on the other boat and caught a limit of snapper and many other fish that day. Also this customer was given an additional 2 hours of fishing time & free fish cleaning when the trip was completed. He has absolutely no reason to be dissatisfied.

Went fishing on Wednesday, June 1, 2016

We were taken to some great spots, caught a few small guys and some that were not in season right away!  Then the second spot they took us turned out to be even better with a huge red snapper and good size red snapper and many others, then we did some trolling at the end and caught a great king fish.  Thank you to Capt Mike and his deck hand Dillon for a great day!

We had a great experience with our PC Florida fishing excursion. It is well worth your time and the cost. The boat was great, very clean. Captain Sean kept us on fish almost the entire trip! First mate Mike worked extremely hard keeping bate on our hooks and taking fish off of our lines. We had five in our party and everyone limited on trigger fish. We also caught other types of fish and released some red snapper that were caught but not in season. Overall a great experience!

Captain and boat met us right on time, everything was ready to go.  His boat was perfect size for our party of 3, plenty of area in the cockpit to fish.  A cold front moved through, although it was sunny the wind was wicked.  Sean did everything he could to put us on the fish, most would have called it a day but Sean continued to work to find fish.  Sean and his first mate were extremely nice.  I would definitely charter with him again.
