My husband, three kids (6,4,3) and I had an amazing day with Capt John and his daughter Skylar. We spent some time fishing, then to shelling and then to watch son dolphins, but instead saw some stingrays. We recommend him 100%.

This was an awesome trip. All of the people coming in didn’t have even half the fish we did. Great time with great friendly service. I highly recommend this charter if your anywhere in the area.

We had a fabulous trip. Hiring a charter means trusting not only their abilities with the boat, knowledge of area but also their interaction with your group. Captain John ranks high in all these areas. We felt comfortable on the water with him as he...More

Captain John knows the local waters like you know breathing. He knows the equipment and the weather. His boat and gear are top notch. Several other experienced captains on the gulf approached our boat seeking his advice for the day. Despite his evident expertise and...More
