I have to say that this was definitely a trip of a lifetime. When I booked this trip the Capt. Was fast to respond wanting to know what intrest me and what I was wanting. I told him in a few sentences what we were looking for and man did ...Read More he ever come through. Everything we ask we got plus more than we ever expected. Capt. Chet knows his stuff. He is a super great guy and is as outgoing and fun as they come. I will use him in the future and I would recommend him to anyone. Not only are you fishing but he can teach and tell you things of the area and species of each fish. I cant say enough about him. He helped me land a fish that I never thought I would be catching but only see happen on TV. He helped fulfill a dream for me with a 100+ pd Tarpon. If you will listen and be open minded the experience you get will be one you will never forget.

Captain Chet is very down to earth and knowledgeable. For me who doesn’t fish, he was so great with my five year old and really just made our trip so memorable and a great time! Four hours was just enough to enjoy the boat ride and catch some fish while ...Read More also seeing some other great sea animals. I highly recommend Captain Chet and do hope my son and I will be able to vacation in this area again so we can enjoy another day out with him.
