Had a great time both fishing and chatting with Mark all day. He put us on so many different species of fish and some big ones too! I’ve been on a lot of charters and Mark was easy to communicate with and was super helpful on the water!

Very incredible experience! Captian Mark is an outstanding, knowledgeable, friendy, down to earth real. He has patiences, he totally laid back and has a tremendous heart for the Ocean and fishing. Its hard to know who to choose for these fishing trips, sometime you just have to pick and im so glad we choose right! He made this a great experience, he called us the day before, he kept us in the loop. And he totally delivered. Not only were we catching fish, we were catching Sharks, ( thats what we were there for) we also seen dolphins and sea turtles. Captain Mark make this is very memorable trip! Cant wait to come back and do it again! You can tell his passion for this and that he respects the Ocean and all in it. Give him a shout out, you wont be disappointed! …
If you rate your trip by the qty of fish then A++. The moment he anchored, the rods were bent and we were on fish for 2 plus hours straight. Mark is a gracious man, kind and caring plus super relaxed! Seriously, when others are calling him asking him where he is at and if he is in the fish—that tells ya something doesn’t it. Radio chatter is pretty telling: Hey Mark-what bait, Hey Mark what depth, Hey Mark where you at—-Constant asking! Mark called me prior, discussed the weather, the moon, the past bite history and stopped me from wasting my money on a day that was going to be stormy with no bites. Honest Captain that cared about my kids catching fish and smiling more than his pocket! Well his pocket needs to be full! Support this guy please! He is true and honest! Talented and caring! We loved our day! Mark you are amazing! …
Captain Mark was nothing short of a great Captain. It started with a personal phone call to get to know one another after we booked our trip. On the morning of our trip, he pushed back our start times due to water and tide conditions to ensure we had the best fishing possible. He is very knowledgeable about anything to do with fishing here, from how the weather affects it, down to the tide and moon phases. I took my 13 year old son along who loves fishing, Captain Mark treated him like one of his own. He keeps bait on the line and your pole ready at all times. We moved around a bit to keep catching fish in a few different areas. I’m just adding my two cents, but he has 110 reviews, or something like that 😁 saying the same things I am. I think it would be hard to find any better Captain to fish with. Thanks Mark …
