We love the back country fishing here. I have been coming for many years. My husband and I have been out with Capt Greg a number of times and it is always awesome. They know the good spots for fishing and always provide a great trip. Also demonstrate fishing so good for beginners as well.

Everyone from where you check-in, to the staff on the boat, were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the drinks were excellently poured. The cruise left on time and returned time. We even saw a couple of dolphins. The sunset on the water was amazing. We chose the Admiral's Dinner. This dinner had selections of carved prime... More

My son and I took a split charter with Captain Dan and the Lady Brett. He did a good job trying to put us on fish. If the fish weren't cooperating he was on the move. While not that many "keepers" were biting everyone caught plenty of smaller fish and we ended the day with fish for all. My son... More

Went with friends for the three hour backwater trip with Captain Rick. Great fun and we all caught. Best thing is he fillets the fish for you ready to eat. Will go again.

Went fishing with Capt. Dan today and I had a great time. He put us on the fish and kept us there. Can't recommend sunshine tours and Capt. Dan enough! Couldn't have gotten that goliath up without him!

this was our third or fourth offshore trip with Captain Dan and as always it was great. Capt Dan knows how and where to fish. fishing action was non-stop and Capt Dan is a great guide. He is fun to fish with and flat puts you on fish.

We took the 3 hour back water fishing. We typically fish fresh water (Walleye, Perch, Bass etc. ) but we were surprised by the variety of fish that we caught-like 10 different species. Captain Greg was very knowledgeable of the area and taught us how to fish down here. Very quickly we spotted dolphin, manatee, and sting rays-jumped right out... More

My son says 5 stars because he caught a black nose shark, it was pretty neat. Otherwise caught some smaller yellow tail snapper we could keep, caught some larger grouper but unfortunately none big enough to keep. Captain Dan was pleasant & patient for us beginners. Biggest benefit is they do shared charters & because of this allowed my son... More

We took a fishing charter with Captain Dan and he showed us a fabulous time. Very attentive and helpful. Made the trip very entertaining and did his very best to make our fishing experience the best possible. I would not hesitate to use his charter again!
