Galveston Fishing Charters: Feeling Damn Good Offshore
February 23, 2020

I met Mark at our Captain Experiences booth at the Houston Boat Show. I told him about how Captain Experiences makes booking a fishing charter quick and easy, and he was all in. He requested a 12-person Galveston offshore tuna fishing trip for his group of devoted fishermen, and that was that.

Then I remembered that Capt. Lee wanted to plan one of his 36-hour offshore trips with us and bring a professional photographer/videographer to capture some content for his trip listing on our website.
