We spent fathers day weekend with Mike. It was a surprise for my husband and two boys. Absolutely priceless, great memories! We caught 15 species of fish. I think we hold the record ;) we will do it again next time in St Augustine.

Thank you very much for your review, and for choosing to make Yacht Of Fun your Father's Day surprise! I had a great time fishing with you, and yes you are definitely the record holders for the most species caught! I am happy to hear you will be back the next time you visit to our area!

“Yacht of Fun-Lots of Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We spent another great day with Captain Mike on the Yacht of Fun. Sightseeing downtown St.Aug and the sailing ships, swimming and relaxing and fishing. We had a boatful of kids ages from 5 to 16 and they had a ball. Mike is a great guy and really knows about fishing and Florida and has a million stories. This is without a doubt the best deal in the St.Aug area and probably the entire state.This was our fourth time back on the yacht and the kids are already looking forward to next year. Mike you are the best-thanks

“Yacht of Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Captain Mike was absolutely awesome. With a knowledge of the St. Johns River and his stories it was an absolute wonderful day. His wife Janie made the booking process easy and directions were awesome. Salt Springs is well worth the trip up the river, absolutely an amazing day.

Book Captain Mike today!!

“Yacht of Fun was a great river tour and a great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We had a great time touring the St. John's River with Captain Mike! He was so very accommodating with my three & five year old boys! He is also very knowledgable regarding local wildlife and the area. (He's also a great storyteller! We were laughing a large amount of the time!) Thanks for a great day & we will be back!!!

“A day on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

My wife purchased the fishing trip for me as a birthday present. Got five friends together and set sail at 8:00am. Fished by the old fort. Cruised by the fort towards the Bridge of Lions took pictures of the pirate boat. Went to lunch at the Conch House at noon. Started fishing about 2:00pm. What i'm describing is a delightful day on the water with four friends and Captain Mike. Man, we were cuttin up on that boat!!! Captain Mike was awesome!!! The price for 11hours on the water is the best i've seen. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great time Captain Mike!!!

Thanks for the review Mike! And thanks Maria for giving Mike a day of fishing on Yacht Of Fun for his birthday! Fishing all day long with five buddies was a great time for the guys, and definitely a great time for me too! Since hearing you would do it again in a heart beat, I will look forward to the next time!
