    Some times you are fortunate to meet people that leave a deep impression an impregnation on you. Captain Mark is one of these rare persons. I was fortunate to go fishing with him today and we had a blast. He is so kind, so full of knowledge, that I do recommend going fishing with him. His repeated actions around the wounded warrior project are a tribute to his care about his peers and good people in general.

    I have many ways I could explain this trip I was unable to go so I sent my 218-year-old sons with their buddies and they had the time of their life. They couldn’t say enough about Captain Aaron. He made them feel right at home even after two of them puked. Plenty of fish were caught and plenty of memories made specially for two seniors 100% be going back to captain Aaron. But next time I’m going see you soon.

    We had an amazing time with Aaron! He had a great personality, which made it a very enjoyable experience! We did the 8am charter and had a beautiful day. Aaron made sure that we all caught fish and was very accommodating rigging up our lines. I would highly recommend booking with Aaron! Thanks Aaron! 😉

    Aaron was amazing! Very family friendly and it was my daughters first time even holding a fishing pole and she enjoyed every minute of it. We chose the inshore fishing and the other kids had a great a time also. My son caught a shark, it was cold when we went out (I didn’t check the weather before hand) but we were very comfortable on the boat and he was very accommodating with the weather. I highly, highly recommend Aaron for your fishing trip.

    Awesome guide, great time with the kids. Very family friendly !!

    Felicia I. with Aaron H. of Port Orange, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Brandon was an awesome fishing guide! We have a 7 & 8 year and they have always wanted to catch a shark when we take fishing excursions. So this time I booked with Captain Brandon just for that reason. We landed some great bull sharks and had a great time. Capt. Brandon was also amazing with our kids. Since there is some waiting involved when fishing for sharks, he made the time enjoyable by being so engaged with our kids which I know they appreciated. I would highly recommend Capt. Brandon as a fishing guide and plan to book with him again.

    We had a great afternoon of fishing with Captain Wade in Tampa Bay; catching snook and redfish. Wade knows the bay well and he put us in the right spot for the conditions. We were originally scheduled for a Sunday morning trip but when the weather was not looking favorable, he offered to put in an extra long day and take us on Saturday afternoon. He works well with all skill levels and I highly recommend him for your next fishing trip!
