Hey everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great summer! It’s been an exciting one for Captain, and I’m eager to share the news:
50+ Guides: Our proudest accomplishment to date is our traction with our #damngoodguides. We’ve spoken with each of our guides individually to understand their personalities, specialties, and trip listings. Doing so deepens our relationships with our guides and charters, grants us specific knowledge of each trip, and exposes us to invaluable feedback. MassChallenge Texas: Captain was recently accepted into the MassChallenge Texas in Houston program as one of the youngest businesses in the 26-company cohort. The six-week program grants us access to MC’s worldwide network of mentors, advisors, and corporate partners for the duration of the curriculum and beyond. [The Site[(https://captainexperiences.com/): We’ve been working tirelessly on optimizing our site, and we’re ready to start driving meaningful traffic via online and offline channels. We have a core set of tracking tools and metrics in place, and our site is fully functional, from searching and booking a trip to leaving a 100% verified review. We’re excited for the future and we look forward to connecting our adventurers and guides! See below for a pair of featured trips: Featured Trip (Fly Fishing): Redfish on the Fly with Captain Jeff Johnson:
Outfitter: Fly Fish Rockport Sport: Fly Fishing Location: Rockport, TX Duration: Half Day, Full Day, or Multi-Day Skill Level Acceptance: All Target Species: Redfish All Gear Included? Yes Fish Cleaning Included? Yes Trip Link (Trips from $500):
At Fly Fish Rockport, Captain Jeff Johnson and his team offer memorable trips for beginners and experts alike. Pick up your first fly rod and your first Redfish on a half-day trip under Capt. Jeff’s patient and effective coaching. For experienced fly anglers, learn new casting techniques or simply stalk Reds like a pro with Fly Fish Rockport! In and around Rockport, fly fishing typically consists of sight fishing shallow water areas, or flats. These range from sand flats to mud flats, grass flats or flats composed of crushed oyster shells. Most sight fishing is done in less than two feet of crystal clear water, making the fish visible to the trained eye. Rockport offers some of the best saltwater fly fishing on the entire Texas Coast. The city is surrounded by the transparent waters of Copano Bay, Redfish Bay, Aransas Bay and nearby San Antonio and Matagorda Bays. There are excellent year-round populations of Redfish, Speckled Trout and Black Drum, and occasional opportunities for other species such as Jack Crevalle and Tarpon.
Featured Trip (Fishing): Fishing Charters in Galveston Bay with Captain Michael Meza:
Outfitter: Reel Smooth Sport: Fishing Location: Galveston, TX Duration: Half Day Skill Level Acceptance: All Target Species: Speckled Trout, Redfish All Gear Included? Yes Fish Cleaning Included? Yes
Trip Description: Captain Michael is a professional Saltwater Fishing Guide that specializes in Galveston fishing trips for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder and Sharks. He offers wade fishing, drift fishing or anchored fishing in the inshore Galveston Bays with live bait or artificial lures. With his 20 years of experience as a Galveston fishing guide, you’ll be sure to have an excellent trip out on the water with Captain Mike! BONUS FOOTAGE: We know the Golden Rule, “Don’t Get High on Your Own Supply”, but rules are meant to be broken! In late June, we headed down to Galveston to catch some fish with a few of our #damngoodguides. We also managed to shoot a few interviews and captured tons of awesome photo/video content. Check out our interview with Captain Michael Meza below on our Captain Experiences YouTube channel:
Adventurer: Eric Guide: Carlos Solis of Mexidivers Location: Tulum, Mexico Target Species: Mahi Mahi Trip Link: https://captainexperiences.com/trip/138
Review Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Our group of four had a blast fishing with Mexidivers! We caught three large Mahi Mahi and the guys were nice enough to fillet them for us to take home. After fishing, we stopped for a snorkel break where we swam with sting rays and sea turtles. I recommend Mexidivers to anyone looking for a quality, affordable fishing trip out of the heart of Tulum! I wish I had more time in Tulum to use them for other outings." -Eric
Note: Eric's trip came about through Captain's "Concierge" service. If you're planning a trip outside our current footprint, reach out to [email protected] and we'll provide you with a few quality options that fit your needs. This service is absolutely free- we love connecting adventures and guides, especially when doing so brings us into new territories (or countries, like Mexico)!
