Incredible time fishing with Capt Mark. We can't say enough wonderful things about our fishing experience. Caught lots of speckled trout, had a ton of fun. He was extremely knowledgable and gave our 12y/o an experience of a lifetime. Fished a variety of ways, learned a lot . Back at the dock they cleaned our fish so we could have... More

Love fishing with Mark. He always lands us on the fish and is such a fun patient captain. We fish with him every summer.

We saw dolphins, all sorts of birds, learned to fish and caught enough to bring back and have a great meal (the restaurant will cook what you catch and it's great). Captains were very patient with our kids who kept getting lines tangled as they learned. This was a really memorable experience.

We highly recommend Captain Mark - he is awesome! He took us out to catch redfish in chilly weather. We caught three big fish and brought them back to Parrot Eyes to eat. Captain Mark cleaned the fish and suggested excellent dining options. We ate blackened fish, enchiladas and tacos. Delicious. Thank you, Captain Mark, for a great trip!!!

My dad and I throughly enjoyed the morning with Captain Mark and Andy. Captain Mark found the fish as he said he would and we began reeling them in. In total we caught 11-black drum, the smallest weighing 9-pounds. Great day for two seniors.

My three sons loved parasailing on the bay. The staff at Parrot Eyes was attentive, friendly, safe and knowledgeable. I had reservations at another parasailing place on the island, but they kept cancelling the rides without reason...without so much as a phone call I might add. On a whim I called Parrot Eyes and they were able to accommodate us... More

We have fished with Captain Mark Guillot for several years during our annual beach vacation. We have a big group (3 adults and 9 kids) and he does as great a job helping and encouraging the kids as he does putting us on fish. This year the boats in our group split - some going out for Kingfish and some... More

The staff is friendly but if you make a reservation, don't assume they won't move you aside to take a larger group. We made our jet ski reservation several days prior to the jet ski ride, called the owner, Ron, ahead of time, received an email confirmation with date and time (pre-paid of course) and the day we showed up...
