Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Michael was a hell of a guide! we had a blast!! He was extremely knowledgeable about what we were hunting and fishing for and made sure we got what we came for. Scout was one hell of a retriever and made sure we got what we killed. I recommend this trip to anyone that wants to have fun and spend the day out in nature.
Steven T. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
The BEST day EVER! Captain Mike was not only an amazing guide but he’s so nice and knowledgeable. Our group had an amazing time and we will 10000% be coming back to do more tours with him!
Jill S. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Michael is the man! Not only did we catch giant peacocks and a tonic iguanas (and one invasive Muscovy duck), but he gave us a wealth of insight into the environmental issues currently facing south Florida. Honorable mention goes to his retriever Scout.
Attison B. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Very good trip! Got a ton of different species of fish and alot more that got away. Guides were fantastic!
Chad P. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
1000/10 recommend Mike & Elena!! They are the perfect hosts and know the perfect honey holes. 22 iguanas and our party of four each caught a 22 inch peacock bass. Eight hours was not enough time for this adventure. As you are fishing/hunting they are also teaching you about the species and the great outdoors. Very educational! Plus Scout is a good pup 🐾
Jessica B. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
We all had a great time. Highly recommend this trip and will be coming back for more adventures.
Scott A. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Brett was accommodating for me and my two kids. Very knowledgeable and professional. Will go back again. We caught tons of fish!
Leslie L. with Brett I. of Plantation, Florida
Captain Britt was great! By far the most knowledgeable fishing guide we have ever had. Ask to target peacock bass and on my third cast had one in the boat. In total we put 50+ fish in the boat in 6hrs. Had a great time, Thanks captain Britt!
Jeffrey B. with Brett I. of Plantation, Florida
My husband and I had a blast with Captain Mike. We did the Peacock bass fishing/Iguana hunting combo, unfortunately the recent weather had affected the peacock bass so we were able to fish for other types of fish. The best part was the Iguanas and we were able to take our meat home with us! (FYI for airport info- it just needs to be in a small carry on sized cooler and meat and icepacks need to be frozen solid, we made it through just fine, no need to check a bag.) Mike was very knowledgeable and entertaining; his dog was a great addition to the entire experience has he would retrieve the iguanas on shore once we shot them. Mike was an awesome guide, and this experience was well worth it! We would go back to visit captain Mike for another Florida adventure in a heart beat!
Aslyn G. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Captain Michael exceeded our expectations. We had some very cold water temps which affected the peacock bass fishing but Mike still got us on other species's of fish. My boys really liked gigging the armoured catfish and they were plentiful. Now off to my favorite part, hunting iguana! We had plenty of shooting opportunities and ended up with 18 iguana in the boat plus a few we did not recover. We were also able to noose a very large iguana! A big surprise was Mike had a dog that would retrieve the iguana after the shot which made it exciting to see the dog work. We would definitely book with Michael again. This trip was kid friendly with my 11 and 13 year old son's.
Josh B. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Capt. Mike was very accommodating and knowledgeable, can't go wrong!
Trevor H. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida
Trip was fun captain Mike was good at explaining how to shoot and getting us plenty of opportunities to try and get fish.
