    Five stars for sure! Tim was great from start to finish, had everything we needed, put us on the fish and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time catching fish. Would highly recommend, and one of the unusual things about Tim is, he is a Charleston native. Joe

    Adrian was just awesome! He kept us up to date on weather and was flexible with date/time to make sure we went out at the best time. He got there early to make sure we were all set with plenty of bait and extra rods and reels ready to go. He even had an extra hat and sunglasses for our 16 yo who forgot his. He knew the best fishing spots and locations at each spot. He could cast within inches of his intended target, was very knowledgeable about the fish, and helped us release the sting ray and gar we accidentally caught. Very pleasant, hard working and very experienced! You can’t go wrong with Adrian!

    Captain Darius gave us a fishing trip that far exceeded our expectations. We had a great fun filled outing. We are already talking about our next fishing trip and without a doubt he will be our Captain.

    Perfect. Great weather and Brent took advantage of it. Took us to multiple spots to try to find the fish until he found one that was successful. Brent worked very well with our kids...11 and 13 year old boys. He was good at teaching them tips and was eager and fun when action was happening!! He fit right in with our family and was a great guide and leader! The boat rides were fun and he went out of his way to show my son's the jellyball and anything else outside of standard fishing that came up. Loved it!!

    We had an incredible day fishing with Captain Adrian! He was awesome lining up the best time of day to fish ahead of time thru great communication. While we didn't expect to catch a bunch since we were early in the season, we caught a BUNCH of fish - completely lost count it was such a good day - all catch and release. Adrian did a great job keeping our lines in the water from baiting hooks to fixing a few snags to getting fish off the hooks. Adrian was awesome! Highly recommend!! What a great day...

    Dustin was great! Not the most ideal day for fishing but he made it his goal for us to enjoy ourselves and catch fish. Is extremely knowledgeable about fishing. Would highly recommend.
