troy S. with Dan G. of Galveston, Texas

Xavion B. with Jason W. of Galveston, Texas
Captain Corey was absolutely amazing! We had fun caught several red fish, he is the best with kids big and small. We will back in the near future to fish with Captain Corey again.
Andrea H. with Corey B. of Galveston, Texas
Capt Cory put us on fish!!! Although the action started out slow, Capt Cory worked until he found fish. Once found, the action was non-stop and very chaotic at times, which gets the heart pumping and makes you realize you are alive. As chaotic & exciting as is was, we never lost a single fish that was brought to the boat. Two thumbs up to Capt Cory for providing this father&son a fishing trip to remember. 5 STAR CAPTAIN
Mark B. with Meghan B. of Galveston, Texas

Jimmie J. with Mike E. of Galveston, Texas
Great trip, me and my boys had a blast!
Richard B. with Corey B. of Galveston, Texas
We had an unbelievable time with Capt. Cheryl and first mate Thomas! They were kind enough to take us out for a super last minute half day trip and did not disappoint. Within minutes of anchoring at the jetties, we were catching slot redfish and black drum. Things escalated quickly once we found the spot, and we pulled in TWO 40 inch plus redfish from there. Capt. Cheryl and Thomas kept our hooks baited, kept multiple lines in the water at all times, and kept the vibes positive and fun. I can’t recommend them more highly, thanks for putting me on my personal best redfish. This one will be tough to top! - Jonathan with Captain Experiences
Jonathan N. with Cheryl A. of Galveston, Texas
Our trips last Thursday and Friday were with Dan and Saul (both boats were Dan’s). I think both guys tried. Sometimes the fish bite and sometimes they don’t. That’s why they call it fishing and not catching. This said, I was unpleasantly surprised that most of both days we spent fishing for bait fish. And unless you tell me differently this was not in the plan. Given our travel cost the boat costs, I was and remain disappointed. Paul
Paul G. with Dan G. of Galveston, Texas
Absolutely Amazing! Our trip couldn’t have started off better. All details were laid out the day prior and we arrived at the marina at 6:45am for a 7:00am departure. It was a beautiful morning, couldn’t have asked for better weather. Our captain, captain Corey, had everything ready to go and we were on the water and on the way to our fishing location on time. Corey, although very young, was an absolute professional and was just as excited to go fishing as we were! Enough can’t be said about that kid. He was on it from the time we arrived until the time we left the marina. Corey had us on the fish from the first line getting wet, and we had a great time. The equipment we used for our 4hr trip was everything we needed, and allowed us to land a lot of fish. I would never hesitate to recommend this charter and captain Corey for anyone looking to land fish and have a great time doing it!
I found chartering through Captain Experiences really easy and the trip we had was great. We had such a good time with our Captain Jonathan and his first mate. They were great, kept us loaded up on bait, and found us great places to keep the fishing rockin. My boys had never had an opportunity to fish like this and they loved it.
Aaron J. with Meghan B. of Galveston, Texas
The fellas and I had an awesome trip with Captain Rick! Caught a mess of fish, but by far the best were the Blacktip's! It was intense! Would definitely recommend, and cant wait to be back!
Brady H. with Rick V. of Galveston, Texas
Captain Dan was great. Very knowledgeable, great with our kids. Awesome trip, I would highly recommend him.
Robert C. with Dan G. of Galveston, Texas
By far the best captain around !
Diego R. with Corey B. of Galveston, Texas
We sought after a fishing trip for our son's 12th birthday since he had never been saltwater fishing before and loves to fish. After searching online for hours we came to the conclusion that Captain Experiences check all the boxes of what we were looking for. The online booking was easy and communication was fast. Our guides, Saul and Aaron were very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. We were able to snag a big one and come away with some great memories. We look forward to booking again soon.
