I fished with capt. Dan 2 times by now in Florida and Maryland. Sweet water fishing as I’m not a deep water fisherman. He is the best guide I fished with. Very knowledgeable about the best places to fish and the fishing gears to use. Very tolerant about my fishing skills which are not that great. Ready always to share... More

Captain Dan and his First Mate are extremely talented, knowledgeable, and skilled individuals. They love their craft and shared tips: for instance, I learned which line is best so that it can be seen by Capt. Dan up on the bridge. But the bottom line is they were able to encourage me(a grandma) and my son (with special needs) to... More

I am afraid to post too much about this trip as it will make it harder for my to squeeze in a date next time. However hands down this boat is the best deal in Rudee inlet or within 2 hours drive. The captain makes sure you have a good time, tailors the trip to your needs, makes sure to... More

Captain Dan is very knowledgeable about everything! His first mate, Cody was very helpful and supportive. These two are a great team. They think outside the box and it yields you not just more fish, but rare prize fish. They also give the fish a fair fight and that is truly the best way to fish. It captures the passion... More

What a great time we had with Captain Dan and his most capable mate, Jeff. Everyone caught fish. 10 sharks in all. Mostly spinners and bull sharks. Unfortunately we couldn't get the big hammerhead in the boat. We would highly recommend to anyone thinking about fishing while at va beach.

What an awesome trip. I asked around and Capt. Dan is one of the most respected Captains on the "dock." He and mate Jeff did not disappoint! Big fun and many fish.

I went with my husband on a half-day inshore trip. We had a great time. The boat was really great and both Captain Dan and his mate, Jeff really knew their stuff. It made for a pleasurable, relaxing experience. We trolled for fish along Virginia Beach and saw plenty of dolphins and caught Spanish Mackerels and a few small blue... More
