My family and I had an awesome and fun time fishing with Captain Ruben and deckhand Thad! Don't worry if the water is a little "sporty". These guys will have you taken care of! Highly recommended to anyone! Had some great laughs and caught some awesome fish! Will be doing this charter again next year!

Met up with Don and our deck hand Josh at 6:30 am for a six hour. They put us on Spanish Mackerel right away and caught a bunch. Then worked us into the Amberjack. Really went the extra mile to pit us on fish. My dad and I both caught Amberjack. They'll hook you up! Don't bother looking any further!

Captan Reuben sat down with us and went over the game plan, I told him I was more interested in the vermillion and amberjacks so he sped off into the horizon to get us out to the vermillion and immediately we caught about 23 keepers. Then on our way back, we tried out luck with some amberjack fishing and to... More

We had such a great time on our first deep sea fishing trip. We caught Spanish and King mackerel, everyone caught something and had such an awesome experience. Thad, our deckhand suggested a dip recipe for the mackerel, and let me say OMG! It was so yummy! We will never forget our first fishing trip!!

The trip was everything and more as advertised. They catered or 6 hour trip based on our preference. My family had a blast. The 7.5 ft. 250lb. Bull shark was the highlight of the trip. We will definitely do thus again next year.

I can not say enough good things about these guys. I love fishing but they made the whole experience more fun than I could even imagine. The deckhand was very knowledgable and wise and answered all our questions while keeping the 6 year old of the group entertained. He kept the boat clean, our lines bated, and had the fish... More

You know when you go fishing you really want to go catching and that is what we did with Captain Don and Josh on Another Getaway. They both were outstanding and we loaded up on fish, limiting on snapper while also adding King and Spanish Mackerel. I would highly recommend them for any trip that you would want to take... More

We had a really great time fishing with Reuben and Thad! I didn't have to bait my hook once Thad stayed right on top of it. Reuben put us on the fish and everyone has a fish story to tell! We would definitely recommend and will do it again next year. Thank you!
