We had a great time with captain Chris, he called us the day before our trip and gave suggestions on what to wear and some motion sickness meds we could get beforehand if we wanted to. The overall experience was great, he was extremely patient and had a great attitude the whole time. I would recommend him to anyone. He was on time and ready to roll out when we arrived. He was happy to answer any questions we had.

We had a wonderful experience! Chris and his son were very professional, but like hanging out with friends at the same time. They provided all the fishing equipment, licenses, bottled water, sunscreen, and they filleted the fish that we caught. They were very patient with us being beginning anglers in the ocean. They instructed us and gave us useful information about ocean fishing from their vast experiences. It was a trip of a lifetime! Just be prepared to get very wet. You might want to bring spare clothes. I also wouldn’t recommend wearing a hat or sunglasses, unless they are firmly secured. Captain Chris is very familiar with the oceans in the area and is able to find spots that have not been affected by red tide, if that is a concern. Be prepared to have fun and to feel like a kid again!
