Nelson and Joel were wonderful and made us feel comfortable from the moment they picked us up. My husband caught a barracuda shortly after we started the tour. It was awesome. Would definitely recommend and go again, but would take my Dramamine earlier 🙃

Captain Nelson and his deckand did a great job trying to get the fish to bite. We did trolling and caught a barracuda, then some bottom fishing, catching different species that captain Nelson cooked for us. Thanks for a wonderful day at sea!
