Thanks to Captain Troy, we had one of the best deep sea fishing trips our family has ever enjoyed. We caught about 10 different species. Our deck hand Stephen did an excellent job of helping my wife and girls with the fish. Cant wait to go back again.

As I approached the boat with my four, prepubescent wildebeasts, I expected Captain Troy to pull up the anchor and head to sea before we boarded, but we were welcomed with open arms. Captain Troy and his first mate, Stephan, were very patient with my children and taught us the very basics of deep sea fishing. The boat was clean... More

Captain Troy and Stephen provided the best experience for our first family deep sea fishing charter on their boat "Distraction". Captain Troy worked hard to keep us on fish and we all had a great time! He also took extra time in taking photographs and videos of everyone and their catches. I thought this was a nice touch! I was... More

We went fishing as a family with distraction fishing charters and had a blast. The fishing was fun and was able to land some nice red snapper. The crew was very professional and was there to make the experience the best it could possibly be. This is the best family oriented fishing trip I have ever been on!

I have been on several deep sea fishing charters and Distraction Charters is by far the best one I have ever been on. Captain Troy and his mate Stephen made the trip one to remember for all times. I chose him because when I read his bio on his website he made a point of a "catch and release policy... More

Our first time with Captain Troy and First Mate Stephen last year was so awesome, we could not wait to go back again this year! Our second trip was just as great as the first time. Captain Troy put us on the fish and we caught more than we could handle. We caught snapper, grouper, and amberjack. Our kids absolutely... More

I'm not sure where to even begin here! If you want a totally different family experience I highly recommend booking a deep sea fishing trip with Distraction Charters. Captain Troy is by far the best and most respectable charter boat captain in the business!!! My husband and I booked a fishing trip for our first anniversary. I had never been... More
