Had a great day out with Captain Paul and Dylan. Super easy going, caught tuna and Mahi, and got great restaurant recommendations to take our fresh catch to for dinner. Will definitely fish with them again!

Fishing was tough, but we found a couple. Capt Paul def knows what he is doing and is very laid back and just wanted us all to have a good time. We would fish with him and Christian again any day. Great guys.

Captain and 1st mate were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the waters. My family had a great time and really enjoyed how big the deck area was on the boat. Plenty of shade and sun and still in on the action when the fish hit the baits.
