My favorite part was him telling me how to hold the fish and then when I caught them after I got to hold them up and show my mom.

This was a great tour! It was a rough day to be on the water, but Brian did great and made sure we had a memorable time! He guided us around the reef and we even saw a shark! Awesome time

We had a boat lesson with Captain Brian. He was so terrific and extremely thorough. I was a bit nervous, the ocean needs to be respected. He put me at ease with the way he went over things before we even step foot on the boat. He as I believe the best way to learn is hands-on. He lets you take charge with safety always a priority of course. I truly recommend his lesson if you are thinking of driving, owning, renting, or just for an adventure. There is no one better to take this adventure with.

Captain Brian was fantastic! We had a great time on the reef. We had our equipment, but thankfully he came prepared with extra gear. I lost one of my lenses from my mask; lucky enough, he had an extra. He took excellent pictures and emailed them the same day. We will 100% use Captain Brian for our next reef trip.
