My husband boys (11 $ 14) and I took a four hour fishing trip that left at 8am. Captain Ryan is super laid back and was a huge help baiting the lines and removing the fish when we caught them. We all caught several (and tossed them back, our choice). My husband even caught a baby hammerhead! Thank you, Ryan!... More

We had the best time with Captain Ryan. He took my son and I out for the morning and within minutes we were catching Bluefish. He knew all of the best spots and was diligent in moving us if things got slow. The boat was very clean and Captain Ryan was helpful, courteous and answered all of our questions. He... More

Our group went out with Captain Ryan. We were six adults and we didn't feel cramped at all. Ryan could not have been more helpful or nicer. Would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to have a fun time fishing. We caught lots of fish and had a great lunch.
