    My name is Lonnie and I booked a trip with Captain Experiences. A simple 4 Hour fishing tour out of Galveston Texas. It was set up and ready to go I received an email on the morning of the trip saying everything was good to go. We drove 3 hours to the location that was provided. We arrived and waited until after 6:00 AM. Nobody ever showed up. I called the only phone number provided by Captain Experiences nobody answered. Finally we found the Captains phone number on Facebook and called him. He let us know that the trip was canceled yesterday and I ask why I was not notified at all? A simple text-email-phone call could have changed everything for my family and I. My suggestion to Captain Experiences is give everyone the Captains information so the trip can be verified the day before. Sorry I would not recommend this company to anyone!

    Captain Ralph was absolutely amazing. He helped my fiance' every step of the way since it was her second time ever fishing, and made her feel comfortable. He was personable, fun, patient, and incredibly kind. He got us hooked up with some massive bull reds and went above and beyond to try to get us hooked up as much as possible. I will reccommend him a million times over. This was such an unbelievable experience and me and my family will remember it forever, and will be booking with him again!

    I booked a fishing outing for my husband and two adults sons with Captain Ralph. Although I was not on the trip with them, they came back and were very happy with their experience. Captain Ralph was very accommodating and picked them up at the Moody Gardens Marina (we were staying at the hotel) and this was super convenient. He has over 37 years fishing experience (hope I have that right!) and a very nice boat. The guys totally enjoyed their time on the water and said they would love to fish with Captain Ralph again. Thanks, Captain Ralph, for a great experience!
