My two sons and I fished with Capt. Kevin today and had a blast. Kevin worked hard to put us in fish. The day was a complete success. Caught everything from redfish to an 80lb shark with a few gag groupers a grunts in between. Don’t hesitate to fish with him. He knows the fishery and is helps that he’s a really nice guide…

Virgil R. with Leon H. of Crystal River, Florida
Great day scalloping with Captain Robert. Very friendly and personable. Being a local to the area, Robert was very knowledgeable of the waters and even provided recommendations of things to see, eat and drink in the nearby communities. Robert also helped shuck our scallops. I look forward to scalloping and fishing with Robert again!
TJ F. with Robert M. of Crystal River, Florida
Nick was a great captain for us. He's very easy to talk to, knows his way around the coast and knows fish. We scalloped but I imagine he also leads amazing fishing trips. This was my girlfriend's first day snorkelling too, and Nick made sure she was comfortable all throughout. Although we came during the less fruitful part of the scalloping season, Nick still made sure it was a memorable adventure.

5 star captain. Worked hard to get us on the bite. Super knowledgeable about the area and all of the wildlife. Great personality. Will book again in future. Family had a blast.
Tony C. with Kevin T. of Crystal River, Florida
The trip was perfect. Despite cold weather, Captain Kevin did everything to make sure the boys were catching fish, and they all did. He shared his knowledge about the local waterways and animals/fish, and the kids learned a lot. He was great with the kids! He was very patient and taught them a lot. We will definitely use Captain Experiences and Captain Kevin again when we return to Crystal River.
