Captain Richard is great! We caught a lot of kings and had a blast doing so! The filets were amazing eating too. Richard even told us how to freeze the many many pounds of fish we have to bring back up north! Helen was also very pleasant and great to deal with. Will definitely book again next year!

Captain Richard and his wife Helen were great! Clean boat, great fish, fun time! I would highly recommend this to everyone! Can't wait to go again!

We had Captain Mike and he was great - very patient with my 10 year old son and got him very excited to reel in the fish! We caught a bunch of Kingfish and a couple Spanish Mackerals. Great trip overall. They are very concerned with safety and ended up cancelling the afternoon trips for that day due to the... More

Our family scheduled a trip with Above Average after checking out the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very very pleased with the choice we made. We were scheduled for later in the week but the weather was not going to cooperate. Helen was able to reschedule us on Sunday afternoon and it was awesome weather. We were met at the... More

Captain Richard was everything we could hope for in a charter captain, and his prices are great. He put us on the kings, as soon as the lines hit the water we had fish on, caught 6 in 5 minutes had 10 in 10 minutes. The kids were loving it, we caught a total of 68 kings, we heard other... More

Had a great trip with Captain Richard. He went above and beyond to make our spring break trip exciting and memorable. Couldn't have asked for more! Will definitely be booking an Above Average trip again.

We went with Captain Richard on the Above Average boat, just me and my two friends. We are college age and were looking for something fun and different to do on spring break. I booked with Helen before the trip and she was very accommodating and great with all my questions. We had a riot. We went trolling for a... More

We went out on 3/20/14 in the afternoon. Took out of state family for a great time with Captain Richard! We caught the moment he set the troll lines! What a blast! These folks did a great job from Helen on the phones and dockside to Capt. Richard at the helm, you'll love the memories they help make happen. We're... More

Just a note to let you know the good time my boys had fishing. I know Rich was dissatisfied at the low numbers of fish, but we couldn't have been happier. This will definitely be on our agenda the next time we visit Florida, probably next year at the same time. Thanks again and I look forward to the next... More

I convinced my in-laws that a day of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico would be the perfect activity for the four of us. Boy was I right. We did a 6 hour charter on February 18 to go bottom fishing for the day, and having read so many positive reviews about Above Average Charters, we knew we were in... More
