This was our first but definitely not our last fishing trip with Captain Rafael. We arrived early and he ready and waiting for us. We were a mixed ability party and he was very understanding of that. He asked us what we wanted to catch and what we wanted out of our time. I caught my first ever fish within... More

Captain Rios did a GREAT job taking us to the best areas to fish. Two of us caught 26 king mackerel in about 2.5 hours. It was our first time fishing in Florida and we had a blast. He had cold water available, sun tan lotion in case anyone forgot it, and took care of everything from start to finish.

Had another great fishing trip with capt Rafael. He put us on the snapper right away and we came away with a mess of fish to fry. Always a good time with Spanish Sardine fish charter.

Captain Rafael was great! The fishing was great! Had to stop fishing a couple of times because my right arm got tired from fighting fish constantly. Will go fishing with him every time I come to FL to fish from now on.

This will be a "strange" alternative review. I have been communicating with Capt. Rios for a couple months about our vacation in St. Pete. We even planned the event based on the tidal charts to maximize the experience. Tomorrow was the planned day of the outing, but got a call from Capt. Rios who said "It won't be the best... More

Honesty is the best policy!! I want my clients to have a great day on the water not a rough day. My feelings are, I wouldn't put my clients through anything I would not want my kids to go through. On that day, the winds were extremely strong. I hope next time we have a beautiful Sun-shining day with calm... More

Had a blast fishing on the Spanish Sardine! Capt. Raphael made it extremely exciting and fun. Definitely going back next time I'm in town. He does a great job of making sure everyone has a good time and snags some big fish!

Thank you Captain Rios for showing my uncle and I a great time on the water, even in less than ideal weather conditions. The boat was spacious and comfortable to ride in. Captain Rios was able to use his power pole to stop/start drifting, as needed. The fish bite was good – we caught trout, lady fish, grouper and the... More
