We had a team building event with 7 guys and used A&B as our charter. These guys are the best. Captain Jim and Howard were courteous and highly knowledgable. They put us on fish immediately. Best part was they were not satisfied until we filled the coolers. During the fishing day it was so impressive to see Jim and Howard... More

We have used A & B charters twice, Both times were successful outings. It was Bob, his Dad, our 11 & 12 yr old boys and me. We caught Red Grouper, snapper & kingfish. We brought home 13 grouper & one kingfish. Many more were caught & released. The boats offer ample shade and equipment. They bait the hooks, handle... More

A&B Charters provided first-class service and made our day on the water a great experience. Capt. Jim did not stop until he put us right on top of the Grouper and we filled the boat! After catching our limit of Grouper, we threw a line out for Amerberjack. We even got a chance to catch and wrestle with a Baracuda.... More

A&B Charter is the third company I have chartered a deep sea fishing trip with in Naples. There is no comparison in how we were treated and the number and size of fish we caught (15 "keeper" groupers and several large snappers). Captain Jim worked hard all day to provide us with an amazing fishing experience. We will be back... More

Eight adults caught fish on the all day trip out of Naples. We caught grouper and snapper to feed 40 adults. Highly recommend Captain Jim with his expertise and enthusiasm.

After making a reservation in Dec 2014 and receiving a confirmation email AND cooresponding with contact details...when we showed up at 7:15 am as instructed, apparently he overbooked or lost our reservation or whatever. Such a bummer and so disappointed. There were also no warm and fuzziness given or gracious apologies. He did offer to get us out later in... More

This party was unable to go fishing on our charter due to the lady booking the trip never confirming and assuring her reservation. As a company the last thing we want is to disappoint customers. This lady intended to book a charter for a surprise for her husband. When they arrived at the dock the lady assured me she had... More

The review was written because of a a miscommunication between our clients who went on the charter and the party of two who were supposed to share the charter that were left behind. We were expecting 7 people and when 7 guests boarded the boat departed. These two folks arrived shortly after departure. They were extremely upset and I tried... More

My buddy and I went out with A and B Charter on the Alabama and had a great experience. The price was fair and we appreciated that they charge per person. We were a little concerned at first that it would be a large group and fishing would be slow, but they didn't pack the boat and the crew was... More
