    Michael is a fantastic guide, he was very knowledgeable about all things outdoors and specifically taught us about the Florida ecosystem. This iguana trip was very fun and would absolutely recommend to anyone. Michael also has a ton of other adventures in the South Florida area!

    Hollis B. with Michael O. of Plantation, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We booked a last minute trip with Doug! He was great! He put us on Peacock Bass and Clownfish right away. We landed a 9 lb trophy Peacock Bass and had a great time! Will definitely go fishing with Doug again!

    Chris P. with Doug H. of Delray Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Roy is a gregarious and very knowledgeable guide, and overall a good dude. We had a memorable day on the water with Roy in the Everglades, catching Peacocks and a few surprises thrown in, such as Crappie and Oscar. I will book with Roy again in the future.

    Ed D. with Roy S. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    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

  • ★★★★★
    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

  • ★★★★★
    Perfect captain for me. He was just personal enough, but didn’t talk your head off. He was focused on fishing and helped us make the most out of an overcast day.

    David R. with Eric R. of Islamorada, 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

  • ★★★★★
    Our fishing experience with Captain Yoan was excellent. Our day total was well over 30 fish. His knowledge, experience and keen eye helped us catch fish throughout the day with at least 5 lunker peacock bass. He taught us a couple of fishing tricks that we'll be using on our future trips. Captain also kept us entertained with stories from his pro bass fishing circuit days during thunderstorm while we were fishing under the bridge.,

    Vitali B. with Yoan A. of Palmetto Bay, 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!
