I started with nothing to go on and wanted to find a family friendly offshore trip for my boys and wife. It was their first experience offshore, and I didn't want a bad first experience. I found Captain Troy's website through high ratings and definitely hit a home run. His website is by far the most detailed and leaves no... More

Captain Troy and his mate, Corey, were absolutely outstanding. First of all, they are focused on your safety on the excursion. Second, they are focused on your enjoyment and catching fish. They...

My husband and I booked our first deep sea fishing charter with Distraction Charters based on the high rated reviews. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint! Troy and Corey were respectful, courteous, family oriented, and made our trip more enjoyable than we ever expected. Their focus on conservation and their respect for people and wildlife alike was unbeatable.... More

It was a great time with fantastic weather. The fishing biting was non-stop and I had to take a rest! The Captian took us to where the fish were and it was an enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone that wishes to deep sea fish!

Hard to know who to book a trip with when you first start looking. I did a fair bit of research and decided to go with Capt. Troy. (1) Big, nice, clean boat. (2) A man that enjoys what he does and wants you to have a great time. We caught a lot of fish and when the bites slowed... More

Excellent crew, we were well taken care of. Capt went out of his way to ensure we all had a great time on 10 hour extend fishing trip. We caught a tagged fish, first experience with that, and the capt and first mate went out of their way to explain what it was. The tagged fish resulted in a $250... More

Distraction Charters is a great deep sea fishing trip for families. If you are looking for your kids to enjoy a few hours of fishing, this is the charter for you. Troy (captain) was great with the kids and Cory (deckhand) did a good job of educating us on the fish my kids were looking at. My kids caught a... More
