Didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time on a fishing charter. Captain James was amazing and helped to explain everything before we got under way. The crew were so helpful and explained how everything would work once we hooked up to a fish. Shortly after the tutorial we hooked up to a striped marlin on the way out. After a good battle, we already had one fish on board and it was even 7:30am!! Pretty great start to the day. Captain James also did a great job of pointing out dolphins, pilot whales and other animals during the charter for phot opportunities. He also frequently found huge “piles” of birds which apparently are the tell-tale signs of fish at the surface.

During the charter, we caught a striped marlin and a skipjack tuna. Totally fun times and I’ll definitely be booking with Captain James again. What a great time for my first experience!
