Captain Troy gives you the best fishing trip ever. He interacts with the kids and they love him. This was my second time going with him and I can't wait until the next time. The best charter around.

Captain Troy and Stephen were fantastic! The second we stepped on the boat, we felt comfortable. It was an amazing experience all the way around. It was a very family friendly environment. They were great with my 6 and 8 year old boys that had never experienced anything like this before. It was nice to see that conservation is very... More

Great experience, I have very little experience fishing and Captain Troy and Steven were super helpful, could not have been nicer to all ofus. We all caught a bunch of red snapper, and a cobia. Our whole group (of 6) had a great time. We caught fish every place we stopped.

We had an awesome family experience fishing with Captain Troy of Distraction Charters. Our boys (8&11) each caught several fish, so did mom and dad! Troy's goal is for the family to have a great time and it shows - lots of patience with the kids as they learned how to hold the rods, willingness to bait hooks, encouraging the... More

I have fished on charter boats for over 40 years. This was by far the most fun, relaxing, and enjoyable trip. Wonderful captain and crew. Perfect boat! I will not fish with anyone else. This is a 6 Star Trip!

My family went out with Troy and Stephen on 7/18/15. This was our second time fishing with them. We had a great time. Troy and Stephen were great with our kids. We caught lots of fish including red snapper, bonita, amberjack, and remora. Troy made the kids feel very comfortable on the boat. He also took lots of pictures and... More

Book this trip! Don't look around, book it! It is worth every penny! Captain Troy caters to families, little kids and BIG kids! I took my 4 teenage boys, 12-18 (my 16 year-old is autistic) and they had a blast. Capt. Troy has perfected the whole fishing adventure. He has great experience and such knowledge of the ocean and fish,... More
