If you're in the Dunedin, FL area we highly recommend Capt Dan! He is very entertaining with his stories and works with those who aren't true fishermen. We had a cooler full of fish to take home at the end of the day and Capt Dan fillet them all for us. It was a nice, relaxing ride to the fishing... More

Fun time. Lots of fish (probably over 100 fish of 15 different varieties). Captain Dan is very entertaining which helps while you are boating out to the fishing spots. Definitely recommend.

We had a sunset cruise with Captain Dan. It was truly breathtaking! He navigates the waters with such expertise. You will experience loads of fun and laughter. Captain Dan will make you feel right at home in a warm and friendly environment.

My family and friends and I have gone out with Captain Dan several times. He is so hospitable and makes every outing special. He is knowledgeable, and takes excellent care of the "guests" on his boat. His sunset cruises are wonderful!

I have been on over a dozen trips with Captain Dan. His tours are the best ever!! I'm not a fisherman so I do sunset trips or just nice water cruises. He is always full of amazing conversation and navigates the waters better than any captain I have ever traveled with! I would hands down recommend By Request Charters to... More

Three generations of family went fishing with Captain Dan for the second time. As usual we all had a great time and caught A TON of fish. From the time we left to when we got back we all enjoyed our experience and his entertaining personality. Would recommend him highly.

.... The captain was more concerned with fuel consumption then going where the fish could be. I rated it average because the captain was an entertainer and salesman .
