The Capt. and his first mate were very knowledgeable and very friendly. They knew where to go to put us on fish and gaves us a trip to remember. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience. Captain Ricky is very experienced and knows all the good spots in the area. He keeps the boat very clean and in perfect condition and is great at teaching less experienced fishermen. 100% recommended.

Challenging day but had a great trip. Fished some different areas and tried some different techniques to catch some fish. We would go back with them again.
