They wanted to make sure we caught lots of fish. We caught lots of strawberry grouper. We also caught a couple barracuda, and yellow fin... More

It was a great afternoon! First Mate Juan and Captain Anthony were very helpful, professional, and fun! The seas were perfect - 1-4 foot waves! My father reeled in a barracuda! Then... More

We went on a 4 hr charter in fairly rough seas but had the experience of a lifetime catching a 60kg yellowfin tuna. Between my 2 sons and I we took two and half hours to land it. We had very little deep sea fishing experience before this adventure. The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. They were as excited... More

Okay where do we start. The staff was young and not professional. It was like we were a tag-a-long to their fishing trip. They started off telling you you can come back early if you'd like and you can throw up from the side of the boat. We took dramamine before. We did pretty good but 7 miles out into... More

Had a great day out on deep sea for us Land Lovers :) Captain Jairo made sure we were comfortable and lead us to some great action during our half day tour with some "mild" 4-7 foot waves. First mate Sherwin shared a lot of background and history of the area, while keeping our lines in the water, prepping and... More
