“Great experience and great captain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Captain Pete has a great operation! From the safety and friendliness to his love for the ocean and all it has to offer. Capt Pete met us at Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon and we headed out to do some reef and wreck fishing. The first thing I noticed was how imacculately clean his boat and equipment was. Throughout the day he was always cleaning and keeping things neat and orderly on the boat. We were a group of three with the youngest being 15. Capt Pete was great about educating and explaining how and why were were doing certain things to attract and catch the fish. It was a slow day on the reef for yellowtail snapper so we headed just a little bit off the reef and fished for mutton snapper. We came home with 7 very LARGE fish and had a great time. We might try fishing with Capt Pete for some different species again next time.

“Excellent fishing guide, great technique, equally strong client service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

My son and I fished for two half day trips with Pete in April 2012. The first was for yellowtail and the secon for tarpon. His boat was impeccably clean and neat. His gear was in great repair. He worked very hard to ensure we were successful and enjoyed ourselves. He caught fresh live bait, got us on the fish fast, and moved quickly to new areas if te bite wasn't on. He worked very well with my 13 year old son, who'd never experienced this level of boating or heavy fishing technique. Beyond all this he was a great guy, knowledgable about the area and it's natural history, and all around pro. I highly recommend him to others.

“Great Fishing with Captain Pete Testa aboard the Native Sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

We have fished with Pete 3 times and he's undoubtably the best there is in the keys!!! Wether its reck, reef, bay, tarpon, or offshore fishing you will not find a nicer guy than Captain Pete Testa and the Natvive Sun. Pete's equipment is to notch, and safety comes first. Overall a great guy and a first class operation!!!!!
