Captain Kevin put me on some great fish! He accomodated our request and was extremely patient with my girlfriend, who is totally new to fishing. We ended up with a nice pile of fish and the fish of the day was a great black grouper that i took in about 25ft of water, after listening to his tips. We will... More

We booked a last minute trip with Kevin in large part because I wanted to ride a 25 ft cat out 25 miles to see how it did. The boat lived up to expectations - smooth and quick. Captain Kevin exceeded expectations! He made the trip fun with great conversation and information, put us on fish, used multiple tactics when... More

Can't say enough great things about my recent trip out with Kevin (boat captain)! My best man had actually organized the trip and while the ride out was rough it didn't disappoint we were tuna fishing and that's exactly what we caught! Just when we thought the trip was over and we were making our way back in Kevin said... More

My wife and I spent two days in a row with Cpt Kevin. One day deep sea fishing for tuna and the other lobstering. It was by far the highlight of our vacation. He knows where to go to catch sea creatures and when we hit a school of tuna or found a big lobster, his enthusiasm was infectious. We... More

Couldn't have asked for a more experienced, professional captain. He was very helpful and very patient allowing us to go at our own pace. It was my 10 year old daughters first time lobstering and he made her feel very comfortable and she caught lobster for the first time ever. He knows the waters very well putting us on many... More

My family and I have hired Captain Kevin for the past 3 years during our visits to Hawks Cay. He is awesome and really customized our trips according to our needs since we have young kids. From snorkling with a sea turtle to catching tons of fish and even playing with our kids on the sandbar, I can't imagine hiring... More

All around great guy, good with the family, easy going and fun. We went snorkeling the first day, with visits to multiple sites, then fishing on the next trip. He even stopped on the way... More
