Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Nick was a great captain for us. He's very easy to talk to, knows his way around the coast and knows fish. We scalloped but I imagine he also leads amazing fishing trips. This was my girlfriend's first day snorkelling too, and Nick made sure she was comfortable all throughout. Although we came during the less fruitful part of the scalloping season, Nick still made sure it was a memorable adventure.

    We had a great time, but didn't find many scallops, which could be because it was close to the end of the season?
