Mako's is great. My 2nd year to photograph eagles with Captain Gabe. He's the best. Very safety conscious. Keeps an eye on the weather at all times. Great new boat this year. Makes sure we get the best locations for photos. See you next year!

We used Mako's for a eagle photography trip and couldn't be more satisfied. Our Captain for the trip was Gabe and his new boat met all or needs. Even the 5 to 6 foot swells didn't stop us.
