Any trip to the bay area is incomplete if you don't go out on the water. Captain Adam caters his charters to whatever your group wants. Our group did not have avid fishermen aboard, so he entertained us for 6 hours boating around the beautiful bay, snorkeling around a sunken fort, and fishing. We all caught several types of the local fish at two different locations in the bay. Maybe next time we'll venture out to the deep sea. Be prepared for lots of sun and waves around the coast, and you will probably want to bring food and beverages depending on the length of your trip.

If you're in the market for a birthday gift for the guy in your life, or a present for any avid fisherman, definitely seek them out! You'll be guaranteed to have a great day out on the gulf :) Also very family friendly, which I know really helps. :D

Captain Adam knows two things: where the fish are and how to have fun catching them. Had a great time going out with him offshore. Caught plenty of fish and overall had a blast.
