The crew and captain were very helpful for our entire trip! Will return! Not too big of a boat so it was very comfortable and allowed the crew to be able to assist all guests!

Just returned from an outstanding fishing trip. We had 20+, 3-5 pound Mingo Snapper. Capt. Cliff did a great job putting us on the fish!
