Captain Russell and the 1st mate did an outstanding job of educating the four kids (ages 5 to 10) - and adults - on the many aspects of shrimping. They were very patient and attentive, and even provided some comic relief. This is a great adventure for learning about shrimping and the opportunity to actively participate in catching and sorting seafood. This is not a large commercial Bubba Gump shrimping boat; it is a platform to teach, learn, have fun and hopefully catch dinner. Lastly, some activities have boring moments - like trolling - however the rewards are worth the wait and one would well advised to bring an activity to pass the "trolling" time away.

Grandpa’s snuck us in early for a quick trip after our scheduled trip was canceled by a storm, and our group had a great time. The crew provided great information and we had a lively discussion about fisheries management! And we came home with a lot of shrimp!

We did the 4 hour trip on the afternoon of 8/15/19. It was a great time. Booking the trip and finding the boat was simple. Everyone involved ( Russell, Mike and Holly) are all very nice and experienced. We caught alot of crabs and shrimp. The attached pictures are the catch from the 1st of 3 drags. I recommend doing the 4hr trip if you can. Defintely give this a try. You won't regret it

Just had a great experience with Captain Firth and First Mate Mike. We did the near shore trip and caught 10 nice mackerel and a couple of blues. Thank you Russell and Mike for a fun afternoon of fishing. Would definitely recommend them for your Outer Banks fishing charter. Hope to come back again one day.
