I had the pleasure of going out with Captain Brian this week.  It was me, my brother in law, and my son, who was going on his first fishing excursion.  Capt. Brian was great with both the rookie and the two vets. Capt. Brian was so patient and helpful to my son and fun and adventurous for the two veteran fishermen.  I would recommend him to anyone seeking fishing charters, rookie or long term vet.

Thanks Cptn Brian for a great trip for my son and his friend.  They enjoyed the trip and said you were a great Cptn.  Im sure they will want to head out again next time we are in town.  Thanks for sending us the great pics and now they cant lie about how big the shark was they caught…although still impressive.

Captain Brian was absolutely awsome.  He was very informative.  He took the time to recognize each person and cater to their individual skill levels.  Kids and adults both had a blast.  HIGHLY recommend him for your fishing trip!!

We had a great time with Capt Brian.  We caught a few Red’s, trout, snapper.  Not as much as we would have hoped for but a fun day - seems like we were doing much better than the other people we spoke to that we’re fishing.
Capt. spent a lot of time with the kids teaching them proper ways to cast and reel.  Even let the kids have a “turn” driving the boat. 
Couldn’t find a friendlier captain - would definately book again.

My 2 kids and I did a 1/2 day charter with Capt Brian and it was an awesome time. He was great with my kids and we all caught fish. His boat was clean and had enough space for the four of us. I will defenitly book another trip next time we’re down to St Augustine.

We had the best time. I was worried about bringing two small boys (7 and 3), but Captain Brian was great with them, very patient and entertaining. Everyone had a blast. We will definitely be chartering a fishing trip with Captain Brian again.

We took the sightseeing trip and had a terrific time.  Captain Brian was very knowledgeable about the area, and very pleasant and friendly.  We got to film dolphins!  Overall it was a great experience which we will be sure to repeat the next time we’re here.  Captain Brian offers fishing charters too, and I wouldn’t hesitate to book him for that.  However, if you’re looking for an experience out on the water but are just visiting and not in a position to deal with what to do with your catch, his sightseeing tour is definitely the way to go.  I’d recommend it to anyone.
