“This was one of the best gulf trips I've ever been on.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Five stars all around for our trip. Captain Troy was very accommodating, and put us on some giant fish on every one of our stops. We were fortunate enough to use his brand new light tackle. These were top notch rods and reels that would be easy for anyone to use, and made it all the more exciting while fighting the fish. His deck hand was very knowledgeable, courteous, and was on point. Even with all five of us hooked up with giants at the same time. The boat was very nice, clean, and had plenty of room for us. Great trip; i would highly recommend them to anyone.

“Memorable 16th Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Planning my son's 16th birthday trip became very easy after my first conversation with Captain Troy. Since we were coming in from out of State he took the time to discuss trip options and shared weather conditions with us well in advance. His knowledge of the environment is remarkable he knew exactly where the fish were. Captain Troy and Zack exceeded our expectations and my son had a 16th birthday he will never forget. You need to look no further if you are going deep sea fishing as Captain Troy will provide a truly memorable experience.

“All kinds of laughs for the whole family!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We went out with Capt. Troy and Zack and we had a wonderful time!! You will want to do this event if you like to laugh a lot and have a lot of fun on a family fun adventure. This is an event not to be missed on a trip to Gulf Shores. Troy and Zack make you feel like family. Even though we didn't go during prime time for fishing, we still were able to catch fish!!! We even got to watch the dolphins congregate all around the boat and get some wonderful pictures.

“Awsome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

What a great adventure! Chaptain Troy is amazing at creating a fantastic family fishing experience. Our family took the six hour trip and were amazed how quickly the time passed. During our ride out Chap. Troy pointed out wild life and would answer all of environmental questions. Troy is also full of information and brings quick wit and humor to the trip. We really enjoyed the ride out. And then we went FISHING! Troy knows the hot spots and supplied quite a lot of action and excitment! My girls had a great time reeling in fish and a a few sharks!! Smiles .... priceless. We also cheered my husband on as he wrestled a 200 pounder! Wow!!! Oh, and deck hand Zack rocks!!! Thank you for a memoriable trip full of excitment.
The bucket list gang!!
