We had a great experience with Captain Danny today! There were three dads and three 8 year olds on the boat and he was such a great guide and teacher with the little ones. We caught some fish right away at the first stop and then spotted ...Read More

Great morning fishing with Gulf Island Charters today. Captain Donald made sure a good time was had by all and everyone got at least 1 fish!

Had a very nice 3 hour kids fishing trip on a nice foggy morning. The ride to the first fishing spot we spotted some dolphin inshore so we stopped to let the kids take a look. Continued on and the Capt. got the kids rods all setup and casted out. ...Read More

We had a great experience and my kids (8, 6, 4) LOVED the boat and fishing. Very kid friendly and patient with my kids asking questions. This is a must do if you are looking for a family activity.

Despite not catching a lot of fish, Captain Don and his mate did a fantastic job. We had a blast even though the fish weren’t biting. The bonus were the dolphins that we saw multiple times.

This was a great boating experience for my 4 and 6 year olds. They’d never been on a boat before so we weren’t sure how they’d do. Miss Amy and Mister Don were great hosts and our kids had an amazing time. It was the perfect amount of time and ...Read More

My 4 grandsons, ages 15 to 10, and all novice salt water fisherman, had a wonderful experience. They learned and fished at the same time, without interference or competition from adult clients. The Captain and crew were friendly, helpful, and patient. The boys even got to drive ...Read More

Wow! What an an amazing experience for our 4 year old! This is definitely a kid-centered charter and I couldn’t imagine a better captain and crew. They were both so patient when our 1 year old was extremely fussy - they just continued to help our son catch fish! We ...Read More
