Independent Guide 5 yrs of exp.
Captain Arturo has been fishing for more than 2 decades now. In addition to being a charter captain, he's also been an avid tournament angler for the last 5 years and has had his share of awards to boot. For him, the best part of his job is when he fishes with people who haven't fished before, or when someone catches a fish they've never caught before. Seeing those expressions on people's faces is much...

Great guide! We had a wonderful time, nearly limited out. Arturo moved us to a few different spots, ended up on the edge of a channel on a pretty hot spot. Caught a lot of near keepers and a few extra species as well. Great trip, a lot of fun and will definitely use Arturo again!

The trip was great and Arturo did a great job getting us out on fish! Our trip was cut short due to a storm but that was out of our captains hands! Highly recommend Arturo's services! Can't wait to go back!

The Captain Experiences’ process was seamless and very easy to coordinate with.

Pick up was conveniently located at Jim’s Pier and Painted Marlin Restaurant on the Island.

Captain Arturo got all 4 people in our crew on some big redfish. My 6 year old son caught a big red and 9 catfish. A great experience for a first timer.

Definitely recommend.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
