Awesome job with an awesome crew. Thank you Captain Larry and Kiki. They were very knowledgeable. They worked great with the kids. We caught a lot of Yellow Tail Snapper and a ~45 lb grouper.

What a great experience. Larry and First Mate, Casey, were awesome. Brought home the most fish in the harbor that day! Our hope was to catch live bait and go for sailfish, but the live bait wasn't biting that day. We could have stayed longer...More
