Decided to go Estuary Fishing with Paradise Sportfishing Adventures not really knowing what to expect. What we got was a morning filled with excitement with non-stop action and many different species of fish. John was our guide and to say he is an entertaining individual would be just a little understated. What a perfect host and guide! He made everyone... More

We chose to do the morning tour but wished we could have gone everyday. We had a great time with John who kept us entertained. He was a fantastic helpful and informative guide who went out of his way to find spots that would produce fish. We will be back with the kids they will enjoy picking John's brain. Can't... More

We recently did a half day (am)charter on the water with John, he made the day really simple and hassle free from always baiting your line to cleaning your fish. Everyone on the boat caught fish. Would defiantly recommend this charter!

John is a great bloke with plenty of stories and was helpful to my wife and I and the other guests. We all caught at least one fish, even my wife who wasn't that interested in coming. The fish didn't bite as much as we would have wanted, but hey, that's fishing

Caught several fish including a small barracuda we fed to John's eagle buddy and a Golden Snapper (aka... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday morning fishing with John. Not only did John's friendly and outgoing personality make for an enjoyable time, but also his vast knowledge of all-things fishing and particularly in the area, assured us that we were safe and had made the right choice. He took us to a number of different spots as he felt necessary... More

Had a fantastic half day of fun with the fantastic John from Canada. .He was so knowledgeable about the area. Ok the big fish never cooperated, but John made up with his stories of the ones that got away. . Feeding his "pet" eagle was an added bonus. We met John on the pier the next two mornings and he...
