Nick was a great captain for us. He's very easy to talk to, knows his way around the coast and knows fish. We scalloped but I imagine he also leads amazing fishing trips. This was my girlfriend's first day snorkelling too, and Nick made sure she was comfortable all throughout. Although we came during the less fruitful part of the scalloping season, Nick still made sure it was a memorable adventure.

This was our second adventure with captain Justin. He was excellent both times and so was the fishing. We highly recommend this to anyone. We caught several types of fish at many locations.

Capt. Justin put us on fish the first stop. Caught some trout and even pulled in a few Mackerel. Then we moved and pulled in some Monster Reds. Cooler was loaded with drinks. Can’t go wrong if you book a trip with Capt.Justin. See Ya Next Year!!!!!!!

Captain Justin was a pleasure to fish with and brings an exciting energy and attentive commitment to keep baited lines fishing well when live and dead baits were fished. Justin has a very good understanding of where to and how to fish throughout the tide cycle, keeping us in fish throughout the day. I plan to fish with Justin in future years.

Captain Justin was awesome! We all had a great couple of days fishing and scalloping. We caught some Jack, Reds, and Mangrove Snapper. We hooked a slot Snook but it managed to spit the hook on a jump. Justin hooked us up with local knowledge on the water as well as off with great places to cook our catch. The next day we went scalloping and that was a blast. Cap brought rods along as well and caught trout and grouper. We will definitely book another trip with Justin in the future!

We (2 couples) had a great day on the water with Captain Justin. Great fishing, great weather, and great company! What more can you ask for? Justin’s boat is very comfortable. We actually went straight to one of his spots and continued to steadily catch nice size redfish for the next 4 hours. Justin is also a lot of fun to fish with which is just as important to us as catching fish. I’d highly recommend him if you’re in the Crystal River / Homosassa area to fish. We’ll be back

Decided to go even though forecast called for rain most of the day. And it did rain almost all day but totally worth it. Justin knew right where to go and what to do. My son and I caught too many red fish to keep track of. Caught around 20-25 total, largest at 29 inches. Got to fight 3 sting rays, saw and hooked into a huge shark. Captain Justin is a great and knowledgeable person, totally worth it, book a trip with him. We enjoyed the day and would love to go again.

My family has always wanted to try scalloping near the Crystal River area. We did not want to trailer our boat across the state and venture into unfamiliar waters for such a short vacation. I searched and found Captain Justin to be competitively priced with great reviews so we booked him months in advance. The night before our trip, I messaged him and he immediately called me. We made a plan which was best for our family and Captain Justin overdelivered. We could not have had a better trip than we did with him and I cannot thank him enough. He also suggested a few good restaurants in the area we should try and he was spot on. I would highly recommend Captain Justin to anyone venturing into the Crystal River area!
