We had an absolutely EXCEPTIONAL time with Captain John. Myself, my husband and our two children (3 & 5yrs) wanted a last minute boat trip to share an exciting experience together as a family on the water. Captain John accommodated us swiftly and created an incredible experience for our family to remember forever. We felt very safe in his hands and he showed us some incredible places!! He had a cooler with lots of cold water for us and life jackets to protect us all. We will DEFINITELY hire him again as we all loved every second of it!!! We got to see turtles, dolphins, lots of fish, starfish and tons of unique shells! Highly recommend you booking him now!

Captain John gave us an amazing experience. What a guy. The total package. He even texted me that evening to thank us for spending the day with him. The Real McCoy. Fishing, snorkeling, sea shells, island exploring, dolphins, manatees, sting rays, sharks. Thank you for one of the best days ever.

So we asked a lot of Captain John. We wanted a family fun day that had a little of everything. Some snorkeling, some shelling, and some fishing too. He had no problem delivering on all of it and we had a ball! He is a wealth of local knowledge and very educational and patient with the kids. Would highly highly recommend!

This was my first time fishing, let alone deep sea fishing. And boy did I have the experience of a life time! I caught a few snapper, sheepshead, mackerel, and a permit. My friends were jealous. Highly recommend for first timers and experienced fishermen!

Thanks for coming out on a charter with me. For a first time Angler I have to say you did the best out of any other first time anglers that I have taken out in 7 years of Charter fishing. You were patient and listened to the Captain. Thanks and I am glad you succeeded in making a "Favorite Memory" on a charter with your friends. Hope to see you again on future trips. Take that "Permit" off your "bucket List" fish.
