We were looking for a PCB charter service to take us and three of our teenaged grandchildren on their first deep sea fishing adventure. With the countless number of charter services, it can be difficult trying to find one that’s right for you. After a recommendation from a friend, we called Southern Dawn Charters. I talked to Tracy about what we were looking for and she was very helpful & professional, recommending a 6-hour bottom fishing trip, so we booked it. The week of the trip, hurricane Ian was bearing down on Florida and we were uncertain as to whether we would be able to go or not. Tracy was very flexible & accommodating during this time as we waited things out (we were able to ultimately make the trip as planned). The crew of the “Patriot”, Captain Brad and deck hand Cole, were considerate, personable & accommodating, making the trip very enjoyable for us all. As that this was the first trip for the grands, Cole put extra attention to them and that was much appreciated. He even had a good playlist going as we fished! The boat was plenty roomy both inside and on the back deck for the five of us. The fish were not biting well that day due to the recent storm, but Captain Brad did his best to put us on some fish (we did catch some nice amberjack). All in all, a very enjoyable experience! Would definitely recommend for a family trip.

I booked this fishing trip to check off a bucket list item for my 91 yr old grandfather and we weren’t disappointed! Captain Charlie & Deck hand, Cole were the best! They were very patient with us and put us on fish almost immediately. We had the time of our lives out there. We will definitely be back!
