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

Evan G. with Mark H. of Dennis, Massachusetts
Cpt. Drew took my father, uncle, cousin, and I out for a four our trip and I couldn’t have been more impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and spirit. He knew all the tricks to get us going, and within minutes, we had our first catch. We caught over 15 fish on our trip and brought a few home for dinner! Will be looking forward to booking him next year as well!
