Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Excellent day, excellent fishing and Brandon couldn’t have been a better guide!

    Vic T. with Brandon S. of Ramrod Key, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had an outstanding fishing trip with Captain Jack, and caught our target species at the first location of the day. In my experience this is rare. The snook were big, hungry, and plentiful. My son and his friend were astounded by the 30 inch snook's ability to fight. We had a great time, and I highly recommend Jack.

    Paul T. with Jack S. of Fort Myers, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Jack was right on time & immediately ready to go. We were fishing within 30 minutes more or less. He was very helpful and attentive. No complaints from us. Thanks - MW

    Matthew W. with Jack S. of Fort Myers, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Excellent service! Will definitely use again. Very knowledgeable about the area and put us in the fish. Loved every minute of it and highly recommended to anyone who wants to go fishing!

    Jonathan L. with Brandon S. of Summerland Key, 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.

    Kirk B. with Brandon S. of Naples, Florida

    Denise M. with Rio S. of Melbourne Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Had a great day fishing with Captain Brandon. We caught a lot of fish, including barracuda, snapper, nurse and lemon shark. Brandon kept moving around to ensure that we stayed on the fish. We've fished with a number of guides over the years and Brandon was one of the best!

    Michael B. with Brandon S. of Summerland Key, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Brandon was fantastic. We went out on the coldest day of January, 2024 and we still caught fish. Brandon is extremely knowledgeable of the area and how to fish it, informative and extremely patient, especially with a beginning like me. I couldn’t have been happier the way the day turned out. I caught some beautiful Snapper for dinner and then some Barracuda and Sharks for sport. I highly recommend his services and he would be my first choice on a return trip to the Keys. Thank you, Mark Maynard

    Brandon was fantastic! We had a great day on the water. Started catching fish immediately and the fun never stopped. Highly recommend him.

    Robert Z. with Brandon S. of Summerland Key, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Disappointing! They did not get one bite the whole time. I was hoping for a small refund of some kind. The boys had looked forward to this and to not see a shark or get a bite really let them down. Would love to try again next year.
