Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Capt Marc was great - he got us on fish quickly. He had each of the 4 of us pulling in big fish for most of our time out there. Crew was very helpful too, especially for less experienced fisherman such as we are. Great experience and would definitely do it again! Great way to celebrate a 60th birthday with friends. - Rich
