Took my children out with Captain Sheldon and Peter.  The captain and Peter were knowledgeable and experienced and knew where to go to chase after fish.  They helped us catch some Tuna, Mackerels, and Mahi Mahi.  It was a pleasant and fun experience.

The only thing was that my children were a little bored at times when the action was slow.  On average, there was a bite every hour.  For adults, I would definitely recommend it.  For children, I think they wanted quantity more than quality.

My husband and I booked a charter with Captn Ralph in the afternoon of March 2nd. From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to have a great time. The captn immediately came over and introduced himself and was very friendly and we met his first mate Sheldon who was as well. The weather was beautiful and even though my husband only caught one fish we had a beautiful afternoon on the boat chatting with Sheldon who was very knowledgeable and they both tried so hard to find us some fish! Don’t bring a banana on board!( great story behind that) We hope to return to the Miami area next year and will definitely book again with Captn Ralph! Thanks for a great afternoon!

Hello Bradley I just wanted to let you know thank you so much for booking and fishing with us!
You caught a few mahi-mahi some Spanish mackerel and Kingfish
I’m sure you had a great time I heard that you came back in a little early because Some of your group didn’t feel well because of seasickness and motion So you had to head into the dock a tad bit early I could imagine if you would’ve stayed out for the duration of the trip you might’ve caught a few more fish but I’m just so glad that you had a great time and you were very generous to the crew with your gratuity thank you it really means a lot and have a great time while you’re still here in Miami

We’ve just got back from an outstanding fishing trip with Captain Matt and Sheldon. Me and my thirteen year old son went out fishing with these guy and I could never thank you enough! It was a blast! We’ll definitely be back and book a charter with Sea Cross. A picture is worth a thousand words

Booked “Sea Cross” for a half day trip with Capt. Ralp and mate Frank. They were sooo much fun. Capt. Ralph made us laugh all day long. These guys know what they’re doing and we enjoyed chartering their boat. Not just to talk about how funny they were, we caught Tuna, Barracuda and King Mackerel.
We caught King Mackerel, Tuna and a Barracuda. Our expectations weren’t high because the fishing was slow these days, but ended up with three beauties. I was there taking photos and videos, but they put even me on fish. I had a blast.

It worth every penny! Do not hesitate to book a trip with these guys.
Thank you Capt. Ralph and Frank.
