Renter Review from Captain Randy's Charters:
"Randy and his boat are perfect for exploring the waters off southwest Florida. We had him take us around Sanibel/Captiva/North Captiva. He was flexible, gracious, and safe for our group of seven (four adults, three teens). Would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again the next time we're in the area." - Chris, November 2021

Renter Review from Captain Fred's Charters:
"Where is the 10 stars option for every category? Because that and more is what Fred and Kyle deserve. I have so many good things to say about Fred and his boat that I don't even know where to start. Fred and Kyle are great, genuine, honest people, great human beings. We felt completely comfortable as if we were family. We felt absolutely safe due to Fred's supreme knowledge of his boat, its navigation systems and the area. The boat is absolutely sturdy, my brother gets motion sickness easily and the boat is so solid that we felt like gliding more than boating, with all the amenities we needed for our comfort and at an unbeatable price. We had an outstanding time enjoying all the gems in the Fort Myers area. Can't wait for my next trip with Fred and Kyle. Absolutely recommended. Maximum gratitude for you guys!"
