Captain Jack was an excellent host and awesome cook! John was the perfect diving instructor and kept everyone safe for our 12 dives. He had a great sense of humor! Captain Jack is a great Christian man and his wife Kelly prepared us for the trip extremely well. Thank you Kelly! I highly recommend this company. They exceeded our expectations.

This was my first trip with Capt. Jack aboard the Emily Anne, and it definitely won't be my last! While the weather stirred up the waters to make fishing difficult, Capt.
