Harry and Alex were great made sure the kids had a great time, had good bait found good spots we caught like 30 fish it was a great experience will be booking again soon. Super friendly all around great trip no complaints
We had a wonderful experience on this boat. It made my moms birthday very special. We felt the hosts and the captains are very kind and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we had a nice time. We recommend captain Doug and Donna (and our captain Jimmy) very highly!
Great trip with Peter!
Steve was amazing! I received numerous quotes for 4th of July and not only was his pricing very reasonable considering the holiday but his customer service is what sold me. He was very polite, informative, thorough, pleasant and an all around great host. His boat is beautiful and he made sure we had an amazing time.
Harry and Alex made our time fishing really awesome. We had some new fishers on board, and they were patient enough to teach us what we didn’t know. They took us out to a really great couple of spots where we caught some excellent keepers, and were very sociable and comfortable/fun to be around. We will definitely be back again!
Sergio is great! Nice guy, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. One of the jet skis is larger than the other, but both are a ton of fun. He had good recommendations in the area and was patient with us. Great trip, definitely recommend.
