We walked right up to the rental dude outside the shop at 11 am on a hot, summer day and got out on our kayaks and SUPs within just a few minutes. It was cheaper than their competitor by quite a bit. Easy peasy.

This was our second year fishing with Captain Chris Willi, each trip exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this charter for all levels of fisherman, Chris is especially great with novice and beginners and can easily accommodate expert anglers.

Chris is a consummate pro. He knows the area inside and out. Boat and gear in top condition. He is a relaxed and patient guide. Felt he was as excited about the fishing as we were! Would definitely do it again.
