Our experience from booking to our return to the dock was great. They reached out immediately after the booking with information we needed for the following morning and responded quickly to the questions my group had. We took this fishing trip to celebrate my brother’s milestone 50th birthday and we weren’t disappointed. Captain Matt and first mate Matt were amazing. When we arrived the boat was clean and organized ready for our day on the sea. We started out on the bridge enjoying the view as we headed out from the marina. By the time we arrived at our fishing spot first mate Matt had the rods in place baited and ready to go. The entire trip Matt didn’t miss a beat, baiting, recasting, switching equipment and his knowledge of area waters and the fish were on point. The highlight of my day was the Barracuda I caught the largest fish of the day. Considering I was the only lady on the boat and had the bragging rights of catching the largest fish made the trip even sweeter. We caught Bonita’s we used for bait, Barracuda’s (mine being the largest) and two nice size king fish Matt cleaned and filleted for us which we took to a local restaurant and had it prepared. It was nice feasting on the fruits of our labor. I definitely recommend booking your next charter with these guys they will take care of you.

First charter like this ,but wont be my last I live in Boca Raton and I enjoyed the cleanness of the boat and the friendly and helpful crew, made the day really great . I had not caught a single fish the day was well spent aboard. My daughter was happy we went and fishing and or sightseeing, which overcame first, MY Crystal ball was perfectly tuned up for day on the water, once again THANK YOU SO MUCH for a great day and cooked the Amberjack with a cream and mushroom sauce with a hint of Cajun spices , came out great.

Thank you for the excellent review. I appreciate that your experience with us would have been great even if you hadn't caught fish. We try to make all charters comfortable and fun and thanks for mentioning that we keep her clean and that wee are friendly and helpful. Those are important parts of a charter for sure, as it is not just about fishing alone, but the total experience. i personally like those Jacks as well and am going to give your recipe a go. Take care, be safe, Rick and the boys.

The whole experience was absolutely awesome, from booking the trip over the phone, follow up emails and being there on the boat and catching fish. Rick who I spoke with to book the trip was well spoken and had nice mix of professional and personable. The day of the trip we showed up at 07:45 as instructed, the crew(Matt and Cameron) was right there to great us, they welcomed us aboard and went over the couple things they needed to before we took off and answered a few questions we had, gave a quick tour of the boat which was clean and way nicer than i thought a fishing boat would be! They also waited for a 3rd person that was suppose to be there but never showed. As we made our way out Matt invited us up to the fly bridge to enjoy the veiw from up there which was really neat. Once we got to where we were going Camerone had rods ready to go and we started fishing. It wasnt long at all and the fish were biting, we ended up with 5 Bonito and 2 barracuda(which was one of the fish i wanted to catch). Just an awesome day out on the water with very knowledgeable and experienced crew. I cant say enough how great the crew was. I'll definitely book with them again the next time I'm in town! Thanks again for a great morning of fishing!

Great trip!! Clean boat, great captain and great deck hand. My 10 yo son and I did the 8 hour trip and it was everything I hoped for. I was hoping for a sailfish and we did hook one but unfortunately it got away. That’s all part of fishing sometimes. We did end up with two great wahoos. My sons was way bigger than mine so his is going on the wall.

Thank you Bryan for fishing with us aboard Marlin My Darlin with Capt Matt and 1st Mate Matt (Matt1&Matt2). And thanks also for the boat and crew statements. Good fun and good fishing and catching, and congratulations on the two very nice Wahoo. My youngest two are now away at college and when I see the young anglers fishing and enjoying family time with us it is enjoyable for for me too. Great for us to also be a part of your experiences and memories.
