Spent a great day with ‘the Mailman’ - ‘the Natural’ Capitan Ray :-). Very accommodating of different skill levels and very patient with us all. You will learn a lot, and he knows the spots - be sure to get to the Kitchen! We ate well that night.

Had a blast with Captain Ray! He got us on fish and I was able to catch 20 plus snook and 3 being 15 pounds or larger! I would highly recommend everyone who enjoys fishing to add this to their list!

What a day of fishing! Capt Ray knows his stuff and put us on fish. Reds, drum, snook, tarpon and seatrout. Capt Ray kept us in stitches too with his jokes and stories. Not a dull moment to the day. What a place too! if you've never been to the 10,000 Islands you haven't fished. We saw dolphins, manatees, sharks, jumping eagle rays and hundreds species of shore birds. This place is alive and crawling with wildlife!
Great boat and excellent tackle.

You can't ask for much more out of a charter captain. We did a full-day trip. Ray was funny, laid-back, hard-working, and most important of all, knowledgeable! He worked hard to make sure we had a good time and got on the fish. We got tripletail, snook, black drum, redfish, and also swung us by to see some gators. He knew these waters like the back of his hand, and thats exactly what you want in a captain. Captain Ray earned a customer for life! If you're in southeast FL and you're not going out with Ray you're making a mistake!

I have been fishing with Captain Ray Culver three times over the past two years. The first trip we caught countless Snook, a bunch of Reds and my prize was an 8 foot Sawfish! The second trip we caught slot Reds until we had our fill and then went after Snook and caught a slew of them. The most recent trip last week was incredible! Day one we limited out on keeper Snook in 5 minutes, a 38 inch Snook and then went to the back country and caught about 30 Snook in the 16-22 inch range. Ended the day with 4 slot Reds for good measure. Day two me and my buddy wanted to roll the dice and go after big Snook only. How did we do? We caught 15 Snook between 30-40 inches and one monster Snook over 40 inches that we could not measure due to angler error!!! You know your having a great day when you stop taking photos of mid 30 inch Snook and just enjoy the fight watching them jump and taking videos. The smallest Snook we caught all day was 30 inches and all were caught on lures which made it more exciting! Captain Ray knows where to find Snook or what ever species you want to target. I hope to have many more trips with Captain Ray because its an Everglades fishing adventure. From novice to die hard, Ray Culver is your Captain - TRUST ME!!!
