Our group went out with Captain Ryan. We were six adults and we didn't feel cramped at all. Ryan could not have been more helpful or nicer. Would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to have a fun time fishing. We caught lots of fish and had a great lunch.

My husband and I chose the 1-5 pm charter to go near shore fishing. We had a blast and caught a great variety of fish. Captain Ryan was awesome! On our way back to the marina, we saw lots of dolphins and the sun setting was gorgeous. After he cleaned the fish, we went home and had a delicious seafood... More

Anyone with fishing experience will tell you that fishing is a game of chance. Your guide is knowledgeable of where fish are found but there's no guarantee of success. My son and grandson went out Thursday August 4, 2016 with Capt Ryan and found him easy to speak with, he put us on fish and were they ever biting! We... More

First off we are a family of six. The boat holds six passengers, not really it only has 3 padded seats making for an uncomfortable ride to say the least. One of the poles was really bad barely wanted to reel in. I thought I would be able to fish without tending to my children's lines but every time they... More

Captain Ryan put on right on the fish. We had non stop action and he was a great captain! He cleaned our catch and we ate it the same day at a local restaurant! We also saw some dolphins and caught 9-10 different species of fish!

Great day fishing! 33” - 30 # Crying Gag Grouper- it’s called a Crying Gag because season closed 12/30/15. Also biggest Gag Shawn has caught on his boat this year. Not to brag, but I also hold the record for the largest Black Tip Shark on the boat. 40”- 50 # Goliath Grouper- just a baby but it was fun... More

Paradise Charters is a top notch service.... Not only did we catch I monster snook as well as 36 other fish covering 11 species we also learned so much about the ecosystem around us. The captain answered question after question about things we saw, the boat, his life, and why he loves what he does so much. I will be... More

We had a great trip out with Cap'n Sean, weather was perfect and Sean was super friendly informative and helpful. We landed plenty of fish to take home and eat....and even Sean got excited with the unexpected catch...a 4' hammerhead! Thanks so much Sean - Dick and Mark hope to fish with you again soon!
