Capt. Al made our bachelorette trip the best! The boat was exactly as described and beautiful. We had so much fun. He was very communicative and even called the day before to give directions and estimated time to plan for to get there. I will be recommending him to everyone who travels to Destin!
Fun crew! Very accommodating! Extremely responsive communication!
We had an amazing time on our charter. Capt. Al was prompt with communication from booking the charter to confirming details regarding the boat amenities. Capt. Al and Capt Kristen were attentive throughout the day and really enhanced our trip.
We have an absolutely fabulous time! Caption Al was great and we highly recommend!
