Got a nice intro to Deep Sea Fishing with these three guys. I wish I did a couple of days since they are great company and made it easy to learn. Next time I will book an all day trip with them. I was able to eat my small tuna fishes for dinner at the Driftwood Restaurant!

Captain Anthony along with with first mate Gregory and with the help of Sergio made my kid's first deep sea fishing adventure a blast. The boat was clean and the team were fantastic. The seas where really rough but we had a blast. We caught a couple of bonita fish trolling before we turned to jigging. The kids caught fish... More

This is the second year in a row we went deep sea fishing with the Driftwood Team. Took the early charter yesterday and had a wonderful time. Jairo put us right on the fish and Jose helped us hook them. Caught Barracuda and Tuna. Both men are very friendly and clearly have been doing this for a while. We then... More

As this was our first deep sea fishing trip we didn't know what to expect, but Jose and Jairo made sure we had a great time! About twenty minutes in I reeled in a sail fish! I didn't realize how hard of a task it would be, but Jose wouldn't let me quit and I'm glad he didn't. We took... More

My friends and I were lucky enough to spend the day on the water with the friendly and knowledgeable Jose and Jairo for their first trip of the new year during an 8 hour tour. These two know exactly what they are doing and worked extremely hard to set us up with what we wanted to catch. Despite some bad... More

My father and I went of a fishing charter with captain Jairo and first mate Jose and as an avid fisherman I can say that this was one of the best fishing trips I have ever been on. Captain Jairo and first mate Jose were incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and eager to help. It also did not hurt that on our... More

Jairo was our captain and Greg was the mate. We trolled several spots and landed a couple of blackfin tuna, two nice sized Mahi, and a bonito. We also hooked up a monster Wahoo that got away (I know, you've heard it all before, LOL). The best part of the trip was the meal that the Driftwood restaurant (same owner)... More
