Set up this charter for my husband, son and grandson. Weather was chilly on the water, but the captain was great, and they caught lots of fish.

Capt Jeff delivered on so many fronts. Not only did he show us an excellent time in the Everglades National Park with some awesome fishing but also was engaging and a first class guide. He was knowledgable, safety conscious, had excellent equipment and was prepared for various options no matter what circumstances presented. I would highly recommend Capt Jeff and... More

I come from a family that owns a charter fishing company and know the detailed ins and outs of running this type of business, meeting clients expectations, managing the weather and making sure the fish are cooperating. I wanted to take my 14 year old twin boys out for some bonding time on the water and catching a fish would... More

Jeff is not only a very knowledgeable fishing guide, he's the kind of person who's just fun to hang around with. . . My wife and I booked a morning charter (Jeff does three a day). We jumped a couple of tarpon during the course of the morning, but nothing to the boat. As we were heading back to the... More

True class act and will and have recommended his boat to all. You will catching not just fishing. I hesitate to write this... More

Captain Jeff is extremely versatile and adaptive to what type of fishing you want....fly on the flats for bones and tarpon, topwater for snook and reds, bridge fishing for grouper, dead bait for shark or simply throwing shrimp or pilchards to whatever takes the bait. He could not have been more patient and hospitable with my 7 year old and... More

Capt. Jeff is an amazing guide. He put my wife and I on so many fish throughout our trip it wore us out. Jeff is a fun, laid back, patient captain that knows his stuff. If you stay at Hawks Cay, or are in the area and want to catch a ton of fish, call Tarpon Time.

We had a blast fishing with Captain Jeff. He was an amazing guide and great with the kids too. My 10 year old and 7 year old had a blast catching shark, tarpon, and all kinds of other fish! The scenery is beautiful and Captain Jeff knows where to find the fish. Without a doubt, best fishing ever!
