We did the 2 hour trip with our kids (ages 2 and 4). My 4 year old really likes to fish but I didn't know how long he would last and I didn't want to be stuck in the middle of the ocean if he lost interest after 30 mins. 2 hrs went very quickly and we had a great... More

Kristin k charters is the best charter boat I've been on, not only did we slay the sharks (16), but we had all the other surrounding boats asking what our secret was!! Captain Ben Gardner is extremely knowledgeable about the area and sea life! I would recommend him to anyone who want to fish the open sea and catch fish!!!

I took my two young sons and a cousin and his young son fishing with Capt Ben. It was awesome! Capt Ben is knowledgeable, personable and a nice guy. The fishing was fun, as we caught bait fish and then Striper's. The block of time was perfect for the boys ages 8-13, also for the Dad's. I highly recommend the... More

Took my son out for his first ocean fishing trip with Capitan Ben and he did not disappoint. We had a fantastic time and I highly recommend booking a trip with him! We will be booking another trip next year.

I was very impressed with the family fun cruise. I took out my 5 year old and he had a blast. Captain Ben was very personable and did great entertaining my boy's questions about fish and the ocean. We caught a ton of fish and it was the perfect amount of time. At 1:45 into a 2 hour trip, my... More
