Experience of a Lifetime

"Captain Dan and 1st Mate Jake gave myself, my two best friends, and my 8-year-old son an adventure we won't soon forget. Capt. Dan's GPS looked like a library of fishing spots accumulated over years of experience. These guys knew exactly what they were doing and had the equipment to pull it off. These guys knew the rules, and they respected the waters they make their living from. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. And the best part was nobody had more fun than my 8-year-old son, and that's saying something! Reviewed January 2019 by sharkfisher45

TripAdvisor Review - Deep sea fishing trip to remember

Booked a trip with Captain Danny, deckhand Sharpie, and dog Bo for me and my 16-year-old son and 19-year-old nephew in July 2018. Had a great time and caught a lot of big fish. Good conversation, great boat, and felt really taken care of. They worked hard to make sure we had a great experience. I would recommend Captain Danny and would certainly go again.
