Captain Bentley's full-day trips depart from Toler's Cove Marina at 5AM and run out around 35-55 miles out. This can take anywhere from 1 to 1.5 hour trip depending on seas. Once you're out there you will split your time between bottom fishing and trolling in 95 to 200 feet of water for King Mackerel, Amberjacks, Cobia, Sharks, Barracuda, Snapper, and Grouper, and much more. These trips usually have you back at the dock around mid-afternoon, with a full fishbox and great memories to boot! Please note that these offshore trips can be heavily dependent on weather. If seas are too rough, Captain Bentley will be more than happy to take you out to the ship channel or reschedule your trip for a different day.

Captain Bentley did everything that could be expected to make our trip with 3 kids successful.

Captain Bentley was second to none. A few buddys and I come into town and gave less then a 24 hour notice to try and go offshore and he delivered. Caught a couple dozen fish even in rougher water. Will definitely be back for a full day trip next time.
