On our way out Captain Dorman asked my youngest, “What are you looking to catch today?” He thought for a second and replied, “A good fight.” With 13 king mackerel on the boat you can tell that’s exactly what we got. Excellent captain, crew, and boat. We will be out again with Captain Dorman in a few months for snapper season.

We had an amazing day of fishing . Capt. Danny and his mate were very friendly and helpful. They made sure that each of us had the chance to catch the kind of fish that we wanted. They interacted with each of our kids and also told us about themselves. Very laid back and enjoyable day!

This 8 hour trip with Captain Danny Dorman was, without a doubt, the most fun my family has had in a very long time. From start to finish Captain Dorman and his right-hand-man Jake were the best of professionals while making us feel like we were on the boat with long-time friends. Everything was perfect…and HOLY COW does this man know how to find the fish! He put us right on top of them every time. Double and triple hook-ups were normal. The boat was awesome too. Even though it was rough out, it was a very smooth ride. We will be going back with Captain Dorman as soon as we possibly can. It was a fishing trip of a lifetime!
