This was my first time on a charter boat due to waiting till our six year old son old enough to go. I was worried he would be board and get into everything. But we felt he was ready and Distraction Charters was the perfect kid friendly fishing adventure we could have asked for. Captain Troy and Deckhand Sam both were amazing. Our son had a blast and he was catching fish within seconds of putting his pole in the water. Sam worked with us, and our son was fishing on his own in no time. Several times he caught two fish at once. The smile on his face was priceless. Thank you Distraction Charters for your hard work.

A TRULY family friendly trip! We cannot say enough good things about Distraction Charters. We have an autistic son who was a bit unsure about the trip but Captain Troy and Sam made sure that he was at ease and had a good time. They were clearly dedicated to making sure each member of our family had an amazing trip. They were very patient and did a great job explaining what we needed to do. We did a 6 hour trip which included migratory trolling and offshore down fishing which was perfect for our family and our budget. We caught tons of fish including king mackerel, atlantic bonita, snapper, and triggerfish. They made sure to keep our rods bent! We will definitely book our future trips with Distraction Charters.

Absolutely amazing. The deck hand and captain were awesome. They were incredibly nice and funny. They even got my grumpy brother, who doesn't like fishing, to laugh and fish with us. Sam, our deck hand, worked his butt off rebaiting our hooks and getting the fish off the hooks. Captain Troy was very helpful in bringing us to where we could for sure catch fish we could keep but also brought us to where all the fish were. Even if we couldn't keep them we still caught a bunch of fish and had ton of fun. 10/10 would recommend.

I used to work on an offshore charter, and have been on many others but this charter was the best one I’ve been on yet! Captain Troy and the mate Sam are some phenomenal guys who are masters of their craft. My group had a fantastic time and we caught a whole bunch of fish. When I have a family one day I will certainly be giving Captain Troy a call. Also he makes some delicious seasoning! Would recommend 10/10.
