We needed a boat for a short time and summited a request on getmyboat.com and got several responses back. We chose Capt. Shaun because of the past reviews. Let’s just say that if we are ever in need of a boat again we will definitely charter with Capt. Shaun.
Josh is an awesome guide with his boat Jessie. 5 Stars All Around, It was everything I expected plus more. We caught so many different kinds of fish, did some sight seeing and even saw Dolphins. I already booked my next trip in July and MANY MORE TO COME!
My family had a fantastic time and caught lots of fish. Our 8-yr old nephew was with us and he was super nervous about being on the water. The captain and his deckhand were great, and our nephew was having the time of his life by the end of the trip. Perfect outing!
Best money spent on a bay fishing trip! Captain Josh is a great man and went above and beyond to make sure our trip was successful! Great environment while fishing and doesn’t hesitate to help everyone! Definitely will use again and again!
We are new to the area and interested in getting our own boat. Nathan took us out and showed us around the bay and channel. He answered all my husband’s questions so well that I see a boat purchase in our future.
Another 5 STAR fishing trip with Josh, this is my 2nd trip and it was even better than the 1st one. I’m already looking to see when to book the 3rd trip (Flounder Season).
