We had an amazing time. Weather was great! Captain Kenny and his deckhand Jordan were awesome! They were very knowledgeable and helpful. Our two teenage boys enjoyed the trip and wanted to go again! All four of us hooked fish! Highlight of our visit!

Caught a 200lb Blue Marlin in my our first 15 minutes of fishing! Captain Kenny and deckhand Shaun were awesome and accommodating. I especially enjoyed my conversations with Shaun. For $400 for 6.5 hours of fishing you can't beat it! Definitely recommend.
