My friend's parents were in town, and we decided to have a day on the water. We had rented the yacht of fun last August for my friends 30th Birthday, so we already knew how much fun we were going to have with Captain Mike. We set sail around 9, and did a little fishing near downtown St Augustine. Mike... More

My two sons, husband and I spent an entire day with Mike on our trip to St. Augustine. We wanted to fish and he delivered. We caught over 30 fish (13 different varieties). Mike was great with helping all of us with anything we needed and kept us entertained with his hilarious stories. The boat was fun, safe and fully... More

We spent fathers day weekend with Mike. It was a surprise for my husband and two boys. Absolutely priceless, great memories! We caught 15 species of fish. I think we hold the record ;) we will do it again next time in St Augustine.

We spent another great day with Captain Mike on the Yacht of Fun. Sightseeing downtown St.Aug and the sailing ships, swimming and relaxing and fishing. We had a boatful of kids ages from 5 to 16 and they had a ball. Mike is a great guy and really knows about fishing and Florida and has a million stories. This is... More

Captain Mike was absolutely awesome. With a knowledge of the St. Johns River and his stories it was an absolute wonderful day. His wife Janie made the booking process easy and directions were awesome. Salt Springs is well worth the trip up the river, absolutely an amazing day. Book Captain Mike today!! Bill & Jackie From KY

We had a great time touring the St. John's River with Captain Mike! He was so very accommodating with my three & five year old boys! He is also very knowledgable regarding local wildlife and the area. (He's also a great storyteller! We were laughing a large amount of the time!) Thanks for a great day & we will be... More

Cruised by the fort towards the Bridge of Lions took pictures of the pirate boat. Went to lunch at the Conch House at noon. Started fishing about 2:00pm. What i'm describing is a delightful... More

A great way to relax and have fun on the water. We were able to see a new relaxed side of Saint Augustine. Caption Mike made sure we were well taken care of with fishing and cruising. We relaxed all day. We are making Yacht of Fun a must do on our next visit!

We are native born Floridians and live on the St Johns River in St Augustine, but no longer have a large enough boat to take a day cruise with our Ohio friends who have never had the opportunity to explore a scenic river from the water.
