Captain Don was awesome! If you are truly wanting to get out and do some fishing he is your guy. He got us on fish right away and was very clear on what he wanted us to do. My Father, brother and me had a really good day hanging out with him. We would do it again.

Thank you so much for the amazing fishing experience! From the beginning to the end it was wonderful!!! Thank you for letting us switch out your reel to a lefty and then teaching me how to use it!!!!! Thank you for your patience with me on an open face reel!

Thank you for letting us switch out your reel to a lefty and then teaching me how to use it!!!!! Thank you for your patience with me on an open face reel! I wouldn’t have caught the Lane Snapper without you beside me! You gave me the boost to get it done! I can’t believe the huge
fish that Eric caught! You even taught us and guided us how to fish for bait! We tried to absorb all of you amazing knowledge! Your Captain guidance and interaction was unlike no other fishing extravaganza we have been on! “If you want to catch fish and be with a experienced fisherman , then go with Captain Don!” Listen and Learn! He is the BEST!
Thank you so much from,
The Zinn’s

Captain Don is a great captain! Very knowledgeable and friendly. We left with plenty of fish when it seemed like the rest of the marina had little luck. Would definitely book with captain don again

Captain Don’t was top notch all around. I took my 14-year old son offshore and even though we booked a full day, my son got sick and Captain Don was extremely accommodating and understanding. We took us back and was able to book the 2nd half the next afternoon. He showed true professionalism and patience with my son (14 year olds ask a billion questions yet think they know everything). I would highly recommend him!!

Great captain for a rough seas trip! Captain Don was very accommodating when the seas were 3-5’ waves and we were debating whether or not we would go! We ended up leaving a little later to see if the winds called down. He navigated us professionally through some pretty rough seas and we fished in 3 different spots. 2 of us were pretty sick and he was very kind and compassionate….the show must go on...

We took his suggestion and went to Lazy Days where they cooked it all up! Highly recommend this boat!

On behalf of Warren Herndon, Wayne Hall and myself (Dexter Hudson), I would like to report that we had an outstanding time on our fishing excursion with Captain Don.

Captain Don was very enjoyable to talk and visit with and he also patiently answered all of our questions, explaining what he was doing. And he worked like a Trojan baiting and putting new hooks and leaders on our poles after sharks robbed us of our
catch when we reeled in too slowly.

We did manage to reel in 22 good-sized Yellow Tail snapper and were able to return home as conquering heroes with meat for the table. Don not only cleaned the fish but provided several tasty recipes. The gentlemen did the cooking, the wives joined us in devouring the meal and we all had big smiles on our faces..

Thanks Captain Don! If or when we get back, you'll be the man we call!

Great trip. We were a few minutes late and could tell the Captain was itching to get out on the water! Beautiful sunrise. Started fishing and got some good pointers. Our daughter got sea sick so we asked to head back in and Don was very accommodating. Don cleaned the fish we caught and we were on our way. Very efficient.

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 QR Code 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.

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!
