We started Captain Experiences to make it easy to book fishing and hunting guides around the world. With over 1,500 Damn Good Guides, our platform makes finding and booking a trip seamless. Head here to check out our trips.

Hey everyone,

Captain Experiences was incorporated on 2/26/2019. Since then, we've launched a high-functioning website, connected adventurers and guides from Montana to Mexico, partnered with over 100 guides, outfitters, and lodges, and established a core following of supporters, mentors, advisors, and friends. It's been a Damn Good Year!

Thank you for all of your support. We're proud of what we've accomplished and we're excited for the new year. The 2020 goal remains becoming the go-to resource for fishing in Texas, while the 2020's vision is set on becoming the worldwide leader in experiencing the outdoors.

Damn Good Gift Card: We don't use the words "Damn Good" lightly at Captain. Be the MVP at Christmas with this buzzer-beater that applies to all CE trips (and more), without expiration.

New Site, Who Dis? We're still in the process of redesigning the site, but we thought we'd let the fam in on our progress. The site is evidence that the team is coming together, and major props to Richie, our (more than) designer for spinning up these critical improvements. We've got ways to go, but we're headed there fast: https://captainexperiences.com.

"Jesse was a great guide! My brother and I had not been fishing in a while and needed to knock some rust off. Jesse was very patient with us and helped when we needed it. He knew the area well and even cleaned everything we caught! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a fun helpful guide in the area." -Ben

Thanks for your continued support! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
