About Your Guide

Born and raised in St. Augustine, Captain Dalton has been fishing in the Saint Augustine area since he was 3 years old. His life has always revolved around fishing and was absolutely hooked after winning the junior angler category in a local tournament. This is why he strongly encourages young kids to join in on fishing trips to start learning and loving the sport at an early age. He and his father would go offshore fishing almost every weekend, weather permitting. This helped develop his fishing knowledge, improve his technique and familiarity with the Saint Augustine fishery. Not only did he learn from his father, but also from various captains, who provided advice along the way.

If you want to go fishing, most charters will do. If you want to go “catching”, go with Captain Dalton! This hunter knows the waters and how to catch the big fish! We had a blast! 4 kids and two adults and lots of fish. After we caught all we needed, including a huge Cobia!, Captain Dalton made sure each fish was gently released. Love that. I have been in many charters and would highly recommend this one if you want to catch the big fish.

Captain Dalton gave us the hands down best experience we could have asked for. Caught our limit in less than hr!! He then asked if we wanted to Trophy fish or what we wanted to do. We asked if he could get us on a shark. 30 minutes later we were just starting our 2 hr fight with a 6 foot hammerhead. Fishing is fishing so there is never any guarantee, but I can assure you that dalton will give you good conversations and a great experience!! Will definitely book with him again!! Highly recommend this company

We had so much fun fishing! These guys put us right on the fish. There was no time wasted looking for fish. We caught a couple of Cobia, a ton of snapper, and they even let us pull in a shark! There were 5 of us on the trip and everyone got their fill of catching fish. I definitely recommend them, and will be using them again.

We were initially hesitant booking because we were not sure how our 6 year old would handle the trip. All of those worries were quickly extinguished. Dalton and his mate worked great with our 6 year old and our other two girls. The captain knew where the fish were and we were quickly on fish in our one and only spot, and continued to keep reeling them in up until it was time to head back in. We even reeled in a big Snapper head as a shark beat us getting the fish to the boat. The boat was great, and the use of bean bag seats on the ride to and from the spot made the trip even more comfortable and amazing. Would definitely recommend and look forward to our next trip out with Captain Dalton.
