We had so much fun with Captain Ted on our backcountry charter trip today. He knew right where to take us, and accommodated us newlyweds as we were visiting the Keys for our honeymoon. We had a blast and will definitely be return customers!

We had fished with Donnie before and loved it, his father was no different! Tons of fish, lots of excitement, and Ted was awesome. Can't recommend highly enough. We always stay at Postcards but only to be close them:)
