Born and raised in South Florida, I have always had an affinity for water and drawn to it. My most fond memories growing up all revolve around playing sports and having a rod in my hand. Form an early age, my excitement for fishing trips would keep me awake in anticipation of the next days adventure.. As I've grown older and maybe a little wiser, my passions have only grown. While we had lots of success, the days of little to no success would drive me crazy and pushed me to practice my craft and try to learn more and more. Fishing to me is not just a passion, it is a way of life. Plus, the views out of my office are pretty sweet. I traded in a job wearing a suit and tie to spend my days on the water, teaching and educating anglers. I often get told this is the biggest grouper, snapper, amberjack, etc etc Ive ever caught. This puts a genuine smile and grin on my face. It is something I strive to do, and take pride in doing regularly.
On this trip, you'll head up to 20 miles offshore, where you'll be able to fish all kinds of bottom, from rocky areas to offshore reefs, natural ledges, and more! You'll be fishing in around 70 feet of water, which is perfect of catching up a wide variety of Snappers, Grouper, Porgies, Grunts, Jacks, and more! The action can be fast and furious, with bites often coming within seconds of dropping down a bait. Captain Dan targets "keeper" sized fish on these trips, so that you can go home with a delicious dinner! However, these fish are generally not trophy size. For the chance at bigger and better quality, a longer trips are recommended as you have more time to get out further into deeper water. Read More
On this trip, you'll fish up to 40 miles offshore, targeting wrecks and reef structures for big-time fish such as Goliath Grouper, Amberjack, Barracuda, Red Grouper, and more! You'll be fishing comfortably aboard Captain Dan's 35' World Cat. This luxurious, "tournament edition" catamaran has an overall length of over 35 feet, with a generous 10' 6" beam that carries the full length of the boat. What this means for you is a large, wide and stable boat with lots of space. She also has plenty of storage, along with multiple fish boxes to keep your catch fresh on ice, plus two sizable live well's, a large T-top for shade, a toilet in the forward cabin area, and some of the most modern fish-finding electronics on the market. This boat is great for families with small children and the ladies, as it has a bathroom, shade to get out of the elements, and provides a super comfortable ride! With all the rods, reels, and tackle included, there's no excuse not to get out there and have a blast! Read More
Captain Dan was so polite, knowledgeable, helpful and funny! Our party of four had a great day and some great catch! A trophy size grouper too!
Fishing was fantastic. Captain Dan was knowledgeable. The boat handled the rougher water well.
What a great day fishing. Comfortable boat to get way offshore! Captain Dan was extremely helpful. We limited out on red grouper, and caught a bunch of other species, a lot of action!
We had an amazing fishing trip. Captain Daniel is knowledgeable and put us on the fish. His boat is first class. I will definitely go with him again.
Trip details changed after the reservation was made. Communication with Captian Experiences was poor to say the least. They notified me that the trip details (expected catch) changed and I shouldn’t expect to catch the species the listing claimed. Then, it was more than FIVE DAYS before they reached out again and failed to respond to several texts. The boat was nice, but not super clean. Captain was experienced but not flexible to adjust the agreement after it was gravely misrepresented. I expected to catch larger fish, as per the listing agreement. If you want to catch a bunch of small lane snapper about 8 to 12” long this is the trip for you - if you want a real opportunity to catch some larger grouper or other mid size fish, you’d likely be disappointed with this “no frills” experience. …
