I have hired many inshore captains over the years and simply put, Captain Stewart is far and away the best. Most captains can catch fish but none compare to his quiet confidence in his craft. He genuinely loves to see people enjoy themselves and catch...More

We were a party of 3 plus captain. A party of 4 still gives plenty of room. Captain may take more, but i like the space and would not do more than 4.
