Captain Shawn carries over 20 years of experience fishing the Galveston Bay Complex onto his 2007 Robalo with twin 250 Yamaha outboards. His experience has led to success fishing competitively and over 35 tournament wins. Captain Shawn will teach you how to catch some trophy sized fish, while also having wild amounts of fun.

Although jetty and deep water structure fishing within Galveston Bay are Captain Shawn's forte, he can still wade a shoreline with artificial, fish the spoils along
the channel, or drift the midbay reefs. No matter what sort of fishing trip you are after, you will be glad that Captain Shawn is the captain. Even better, all tackle (including rods, reels, lures, and bait) and fuel are furnished for all trips at no extra charge.

Captain Roy took great care of us during our trip for our father's birthday! It was a fun and entertaining trip. We caught quite a bit of fish. We will be using this team again for a day of fun!

Oh, man, let me tell you about this fishing charter in Galveston. If you want an adventure on the high seas that rivals Moby Dick without the depressing ending, book a trip with Captain Sean and his first mate Abbie. These folks know their stuff.

So, we start the day with my stepdad, bless his heart, hooking a stingray. Yeah, you read that right. He thought he was reeling in a sea monster. The water was

So this definitely was not the experience we were hoping to have. Our Captain showed up late it very much appeared that he was hungover and or he just didn't have any desire to be there. Everybody has their bad days but speaking as a former hunting and fishing guide he had no interest in doing his job. If I wanted to sit on a boat and catch catfish I could have stayed home. He

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!
