    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.

    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.

    Kirk B. with Brandon S. of Naples, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    5 stars for everything! Great Captain and First Mate! Caught a bunch of fish. My 14 year old caught an 8ft sailfish.
