So much fun for my boys and I. Captain Chad put us on fish right away. The deckhand Shy worked her tail off making sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely recommend and will be using them again.

Fished hard for a variety of species, top, middle, and bottom. Caught king, mackerel, shark, and limited out on snapper. Great day fishing!

Fred M.

Capt chad works harder than anyone i have fished with to ensure you catch what can be caught that day. The bean bags make the ride easy. In fact everyone fell asleep in 3ft seas on the way back.

William S.

Hunting

The trip was a blast! Chad had us catching fish the whole time! All the equipment was in good working order, he had a range of artificial and live bait, and we had plenty of lines in the water at all times. The cleaning facilities at the Wharf were great, as well. The whole experience was as easy as it was fun! We’ll be back!
