If you're in the Dunedin, FL area we highly recommend Capt Dan! He is very entertaining with his stories and works with those who aren't true fishermen.

Fun time. Lots of fish (probably over 100 fish of 15 different varieties). Captain Dan is very entertaining which helps while you are boating out to the fishing spots. Definitely recommend.

Weather had be particularly bad the entire week before we shoved off. I trusted Captain Dan's ability to get us to a spot to catch fish. He informed us of his... More

We had a sunset cruise with Captain Dan. It was truly breathtaking! He navigates the waters with such expertise. You will experience loads of fun and laughter. Captain Dan will make you feel right at home in a warm and friendly environment.

My family and friends and I have gone out with Captain Dan several times. He is so hospitable and makes every outing special. He is knowledgeable, and takes excellent care of the "guests" on his boat. His sunset cruises are wonderful!

I have been on over a dozen trips with Captain Dan. His tours are the best ever!! I'm not a fisherman so I do sunset trips or just nice water cruises. He is always full of amazing conversation and navigates the waters better than any captain I have ever traveled with! I would hands down recommend By Request Charters to... More

Three generations of family went fishing with Captain Dan for the second time. As usual we all had a great time and caught A TON of fish. From the time we left to when we got back we all enjoyed our experience and his entertaining personality. Would recommend him highly.

.... The captain was more concerned with fuel consumption then going where the fish could be. I rated it average because the captain was an entertainer and salesman .

These are not my words, but those of my four children. From 9 to 17, all of them had a blast. One of the best things that happened was his cancelling our expedition due to inclement weather. Thankfully, he had an opening while we were still in the area. Well worth the investment, just don't add up how much each... More

We had a great time with Captain Dan! Two good friends (husband and wife,) were visiting us from Sweden, my father, husband, daughter and her boyfriend all went for a wonderful ride, fishing and a day in the sun! Everyone caught at least eight fish a piece - one right after another and sometimes a few all at the same... More
