We went on a 1/2 day charter with Captain Mike on the Above Average 2. Helen was very friendly and helpful when we booked, helped us get set up in the morning, and took a group picture with the boat. We had a beautiful ride out, and wonderful weather, which can't be controlled, but added to our enjoyment. We did... More

My family and I went out for a half day fishing trip on Memorial Day and had a blast with Captain Richard. He knew the best places to go to have a successful trip. We came back with three tuna, one big king mackerel, and many Spanish mackerel. If anyone is interested in taking a deep sea fishing trip I... More

We just did a half day trip (5/20/16) with Captain Rich and had a fantastic time. We didn't even have all the poles in the water and were catching fish. He put us right on them. There were four adults on this trip and had more than enough room. Did a fantastic job of filleting the 20 Spanish and 4... More

Went on 6 hour charter with Mike and he was great. Boat was nice size and very clean. Caught red grouper, kingfish, and grunt. I would highly recommend them.

We just finished a half day charter fishing for king and Spanish mackerel. We caught our limit of king and several Spanish. Capt Richard was a great guy. We knew we had one of the best when other charter guys were following us! .

This was our first family deep sea fishing trip. Based on past reviews, we chose Above Average. All I can say is…WOW! We had a wonderful experience with Captain Mike! He was very helpful and patient with some fishing novices. Plus, he went the extra two miles and found lots of King and Spanish Mackerel. In fact, we hit the... More

Captain Mike took us on a great excursion! There were 5 of us, ranging in age from 7 to 77, and we all had a great time. The price is obviously more than going on a larger charter (party) boat, but if you want a fun, intimate experience with your small group/family, with a lot of personal attention, I think... More

We kept getting our trip pushed back because of weather but Helen stayed in touch and kept giving us options so we could fish. We left at 7:00 am on a Sunday. Captain Mike took us out 12 miles and the first line in got a bite. From there on it was fishing fun. We caught several species of fish... More
