We booked a trip with Capt Troy for my fathers 60th birthday and to take my nephew out fishing for the first time. He's 8, almost 9, and had a blast. We did some trolling, bottom fishing, and had a great 6 hour trip. All the women back at the beach house were glad we could catch dinner for everyone.... More

Excellent family event in a wonderful and safe environment. This was really a bonding experience for my family. As a father of four teenagers who have seen and done almost everything, I never thought I could find something they all would enjoy so much. I will recommend this charter to all my family and friends at home.

Captain Troy and Deck Hand Stephen were great!

Took my wife, sister, brother-in law and two teenage nephews with me. If us novice fishermen/women can have an awesome time, anyone can! They... More

My family & I came from Texas and a friend recommended we use the Distractions charters if we wanted to try deep sea fishing! It was awesome! Troy explained the rules & where things were located before we left. Every time we stopped Troy & his deckhand (Steven?), were very helpful. I learned a lot! It was fun & relaxing!... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our family fishing trip with Capt.Troy on Distraction Charters. He and his deckhand Stephen were very friendly and shared their love and knowledge of the ocean with our kids. We caught our limit of red snapper in a short time and had a blast watching the dolphins swim alongside the boat. We were very impressed with Capt.... More

I cannot say how much my family and I enjoyed our first family fishing trip. We took our 2 boys ( 9&12 ) our youngest who doesn't usually enjoy fishing caught the biggest red snapper of the day! Needless to say he is hooked now. I believe his favorite part of the day was captain Troy letting him ride along... More

As the owners of a family medical practice my wife I understand that each person we encounter only come back if they leave knowing that they just received the best service that have ever encountered and Captain Troy and first mate Stephen obviously have a firm grasp on this concept as well..... from the efficiency in the way the charter...
