The Captain/Owner is a real jerk. I charter 2-3 ocean fishing trips a year so I have experienced allot of different Captains throughout the last 30 years and this was the worst. This guy forgot who the customer was. Not only was he rude to us but he literally screamed at his 1st mate the ENTIRE time.Even if the Captain... More

This is the worst charter I have ever been on. The captain did not deliver on the negotiated charter and complained the entire time. We paid $1300.00 for a full day dive and off shore fishing combo. What we got was a short dive and an inshore fishing trip. I have been fortunate enough to fish across the US with... More

I saw a nurse shark there and a lot of other things. Can't wait to go again. I rented gear which was... More

I had no idea the Naples area had such great dive spots. Captain Mark sure knows the spots. Can't wait to get back to Naples to... More

We had a wonderful time with Captain mark and Mate Matt. They took care of us by taking us in the waters of the gulf and Estero Bay where we saw beautiful dolphins--5 of them actually swimming beside our boat for quite some time---the dolphins were so close to us, we almost could touch them from the boat! They even... More

Started the trip with no bait then half way through the 6 hour trip we had to stop to get fuel; serious safety issue. Captain Mark was a jerk. He cursed the entire trip and said things behind our back that he thought we could not hear. We really paid him to smoke cigarettes and talk about how little we... More
