My two sons and I had a great time out with Capt Rick and his first mate. Easygoing, he taught us quickly how to handle the spearguns. Great snorkeling. Capt know the areas well. He can get you on the fish. Its up to you you work on your technique. Great time and great service. We will be back.

I cannot say enough good things about Captain Rick and this excursion! I wanted to book a fishing trip mainly for my 13 year old son, as he has only fished out of ponds and lakes. As soon as I read a couple reviews talking about how laid-back and easygoing Captain Rick was; I knew he was our guy! Captain Rick did everything he could to make us both feel comfortable; including letting my son drive the boat and sticking with him the whole time while spear fishing to ensure he got a catch. Then of course cheering and fist bumping after each catch he made, hyping him up and making him feel good. Aside from how wonderful Captain Rick was, the places he took us to spear fish and snorkel were absolutely stunning!! We saw tons of gorgeous fish, a huge eel and even a small octopus that we would have never noticed if Captain Rick hadn't pointed it out. You know, it's really something to get caught in a huge school of fish and then turn and see a tarpon almost 4.5 feet long swimming two feet away from you! Point blank Captain Rick and this whole excursion was amazing! Like another reviewer said; fishing with Captain Rick is like fishing with a good friend. Captain Rick, we cannot wait to come fish with you again!

We went out two days with Captain Rick and Devon and had a blast! These guys are the real thing, their local knowledge of the reefs is very impressive. We caught the biggest lobster i've ever seen and so many good sized snappers and groupers! Definitely recommend Swashbuckling tours to anyone who is keen for an adventure

FREAKIN AWESOME day! Rick is a beast of a captain! Got to run some lines for fish in between snorkeling, lobster diving and a sudden pouring rain! Why do you catch more fish when it rains??? Because they hide under the boat for cover. 😆

We had an amazing time with Rick super low-key and down to earth. If you want to feel like you’re fishing with your good friend and not a tour guide, go with Rick. He took us to some cool spots. We even switched days cause the day we booked he said was not a good day to go out do too the winds. So glad we changed dates he was right! Instead of just having us waste money he picked another day we were there too make it a more enjoyable day. Also now my boyfriend has to transform his truck into Ricks rad get up. Water tank and cutting board there to show you how to clean the fish and lobsters. Thanks Rick we will be back!
