    We had a great time on our trip with Captain Nathan’s crew! Noah was our skipper, and Nick was the deckhand. They were both helpful and engaging, and always there to lend a hand. Would definitely recommend for both beginner and experienced anglers!

    Awesome trip, Captain Sam and his first mate Noah were extremely helpful. Captain had us in a school of bluefin within minutes of stopping. We all met our limit for the day! They cleaned them and bagged them. We got some really awesome pictures! Great trip and would highly recommend Captain Sam.

    Bobby was our captain and he treated myself, my son and my grandson like we owned the boat. He was very professional and courteous and answered all our questions. He gave us choices which no other service has in the past. This was much appreciated and I plan on returning again.
