Although the Captain and the Guide were extremely helpful, the boat needs a good cleansing. They really tried to get fish, but we had no luck that day. The entire 8 hours, bobbing and driving through the waves, wasn't bad at all. But the boat seemed it was nearly about to break down. The fumes coming from the engine was... More

Even though we didn't catch anything and the people before us did 😡 which any fisherman knows comes with the game. Had a great time on the water with the captain and Dan. It was a beautiful day on gorgeous water.

The captain and crew were very accommodating and knowledgeable. Our group was two couples, with all of us having very little deepwater fishing experience. The weather was bad and thisblerge fish weren't cooperating, however the captain managed to find a lost fishing net that was holding a few fish. We managed to catch a couple Mahi Mahi, and missed one... More

We started off the 6 hour charter a little slow, but ended up getting into a spear fish and then a beautiful 400+lb blue Marlin.. epic day to say the least.

This was our first experience of deep sea fishing, it was great to be out fishing promptly in the clear morning light at 06:30am. We landed, tagged and then released a short nose spear fish, which was wonderful, with a mid sized Blue Marlin approaching the lure also, Brett and the team provided great instruction between looking out for the...

Although we had no strikes, Brett changed out the lures a couple of times to see if we could drum up some action, but no luck.... More
