“Best fishing trip ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Erich and Chris were awesome. Four of us went on a half day fishing trip today and only wished we had done a full day. Erich and Chris were so knowledgeable and very helpful. They knew exactly where to take us to have a great fishing experience. Freshly caught Grouper tonight for dinner. Thanks for finding "NH1". See you next trip/ Paul, Shawna, Anne & Rob

“Rude and Disorganized”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

Very bad experience with Maverick Fishing Charters. Rude and disorganized. Cancelled a half day charter morning of which was understandable due to weather. But called back later in the morning to say the weather had changed and now he could take us (was still overcast and windy but we thought he knew best). We showed up at noon as requested at which time he said his boat was broken. What a waste of a day. Didn't even bother to apologize. Don't book with Erich, there are plenty of others around.

We apologize for the inconvenience of the weather and our engine trouble on the day of your charter. We try our best to accommodate everyone and rearrange the schedule when weather is a factor, but unfortunately the weather cannot be changed. We felt the conditions offshore had improved enough in the afternoon to continue your trip, which is when we encountered a mechanical issue with the boat. Had we known of the issue earlier in the day, we would have called you to cancel/reschedule your trip. We apologize again for your being inconvenienced and that this issue was not noticed sooner in the day. Fortunately we did discover it before your charter, which is why we service the boat on a daily basis. Again, safety is always our number one concern and always has been on the hundreds of charters we've ran in the past. We would be happy to correct this inconvenience by offering you $50 OFF your next charter should you choose to go with us.

Thank you.

“Exciting and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

i love going on a Charter with Captain Erich. He always manages to find those fish! And he loves what he does, and it is obvious! If you have never been deep sea fishing or you are skeptical, give it a whirl! It is 'different' than 'just fishing'. It should be on your Bucket List!!!!

Highly recommended fishing charter, Capt Erich Jaeger is very knowledgeable and was determined to give us a trip to remember. He was keen to ensure we caught what we wanted however long it took, imagine our excitement at actually catching a huge bull shark which we had tried to do with other charters but maverick actually delivered!! We even accidentally hooked a huge sea turtle (twice) which gave our family a totally unexpected but very amazing close up of this wonderful animal. Will be in touch next time we're in Florida

“Amazing trip with our Grandson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

Captain Erich was wonderful with our 12 YO Grandson. The grandfather has never caught a fish in his life, and on this trip he caught three. The Grandson caught ten or more, and me well - I caught a few as well.

Wonderful trip - highly recommend for family, children that want to learn how to fish, and those looking for a great day on the water.
