"Thank you Scott for a truly incredible day on the water..! Our kids' first off-shore fishing charter and we couldn't have asked for a better experience and guide. Your knowledge, attention to detail and care for everyone onboard was top notch resulting in an amazing catch and unforgettable memories. As an avid boater myself I could tell you were an experienced captain and have built one of the best boats I have ever fished off of. I don't often post reviews but you really did go above and beyond and I would highly recommend your services to anyone... Thank you.!"
