Captain Harry was great. He taught us the way to fish a new area. Explaining to us why the area was hard to fish and tricks to fish new areas. Great experience and will be using Captain Harry again.
Murray T. with Harry H. of Panama City Beach, Florida
Ralph did a great job with us. He made sure the kids were having a good time even though the fish weren’t biting really well. He worked his tail off trying to get us on the fish and we did catch a few.

Brad P. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas
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!
Lonnie W. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas
We had an excellent experience, captain was very patient in teaching me how to fish!
Mary W. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas

Gary D. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas
Had a great time and our guide David was like fishing with an old friend. He was super kind and knowledgeable. Hope to fish with him again in Galveston.
Mark K. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas
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!
Sloan P. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas

John H. with Chris J. of Galveston, Texas
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!
Dan M. with Ralph F. of Galveston, Texas

Terrance D. with Jesse F. of Galveston, Texas
Jesse was a great guide! My brother and I had not been fishing in a while and needed to knock some rust off. Jesse was very patient with us and helped when we needed it. He knew the area well and even cleaned everything we caught! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a fun helpful guide in the area.
