Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    We had a great full day trip with Captain Chris. Chris really helped my wife with his patience and encouragement fight big fish in deep water and use lighter tackle at the shallower wreck. She landed nice yellowtail, yellow jack, mackerel and amberjack. Chris worked hard all day keeping us in fish and rigged as the shark tax was high though the morning. At the end of the day we got great local restaurant recommendations and tips on cooking our catch. Loved the boat playlist! Highly recommend and hope to come back to fish with Chris again.

    John K. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida

    Damn great time on the water with Ben. He was willing to quickly adjust to last minute changes (remember, when you are replying to messages from Captain Experiences they might not get to the guide you are using through them). Ben got us into multiple species of fish using various methods of angling. When our time was up, we had a few "keepers" that Ben filleted up for us. It was a perfect day on the water. Thanks for the great time Ben and, more importantly, thank you for your service to our country! DO NOT HESITATE to book a trip with Ben.

    We had a good trip with Capt. Don. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We did have to cut our trip short, as one of our party got sea sick. Thanks Capt. Don. (He is also a veteran).

    Captain Don was awesome! If you are truly wanting to get out and do some fishing he is your guy. He got us on fish right away and was very clear on what he wanted us to do. My Father, brother and me had a really good day hanging out with him. We would do it again.

    We had a wonderful day fishing with Chris. He is incredibly knowledgeable and his passion for fishing really shows. We had three younger kids with and he definitely knows how to make it a great experience for even the novice fishermen. We would definitely take another trip with captain Chris!

    Donald S. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Chris was amazing! He taught everyone how to properly fish and catch fish. We caught plenty of fish even though he said it was a light day. We were pretty excited to get a wide variety of fish including a couple different groupers and some nurse sharks. Hopefully his new term for the nurse shark will follow him on many voyages to come! We all had a great time would totally recommend and would love to come back!

    Don, Thank you so much for the amazing fishing experience! From the beginning to the end it was wonderful!!! Thank you for letting us switch out your reel to a lefty and then teaching me how to use it!!!!! Thank you for your patience with me on an open face reel! I wouldn’t have caught the Lane Snapper without you beside me! You gave me the boost to get it done! I can’t believe the huge fish that Eric caught! You even taught us and guided us how to fish for bait! We tried to absorb all of you amazing knowledge! Your Captain guidance and interaction was unlike no other fishing extravaganza we have been on! “If you want to catch fish and be with a experienced fisherman , then go with Captain Don!” Listen and Learn!
