• Cannot Recommend Enough

    We had an amazing time day fishing with Captain John! He was very knowledgeable and funny. We will definitely do this again soon!

  • Unforgettable Experience

    This was my first time fishing, let alone deep sea fishing. And boy did I have the experience of a life time! I caught a few snapper, sheepshead, mackerel, and a permit. My friends were jealous. Highly recommend for first timers and experienced fishermen!

  • Family Fishing Charter

    Chartered Captain John for a four hour fishing trip so my grandson from Chicago could experience some real

    Gulf style fishing. It's amazing that Capt. John is so knowledge about the area waters. We caught two Grouper while trolling although they were under size my Grandson was so excited to even reel one in. By the end we had caught many fish and had a awesome time. I would personally recommend Capt .John. He knows the waters, knows where to go and fish , what bait the fish are hitting on and facts about the surrounding islands

    Will definingly book with Capt. John again.

  • Awesome

    We did the 2-1/2 hour sunset and nature tour. Captain John was very courteous and made sure that the tour was what we wanted to do and see. Pick you up and drop you off where you wanted it to.be. He suggests options but wants it to be your decision which is nice. He knows the area and the history and the wildlife so you learn a lot. He will allow you to bring food and drinks which is great. Plan ahead and bring a cooler with no glass or nothing breakable. We poured a bottle of wine in a Corkcicle and plastic cups and we were good to go. The sky was a brilliant hue of colors for the sunset. Awesome time. Thanks John. Will do it again. The explanation of the name Five O’clock Charlie is a nice story. Loved seeing the dolphins, I’m sure they are descendants of Charlie.

  • Great Day...highly recommend

    Captain John provided a wonderful charter experience for our family, which included dolphin sightings, fishing, manatees, shell searching, and walk around a natural preserve. Captain John is very knowledgeable of the area and the wildlife and is safe and respectful of the environment. We really appreciate him taking the time to ask what all we wanted to see and do and was very accommodating to our family. At the last minute we decided to do some fishing and Captain John happily provided us with the equipment to do so...to our surprise we ended up catching quite the fish! It could not have been a better day!

  • Perfect Day!

    Egmont Key is gorgeous, and our excursion with Captain John was the best part of our vacation by far. It was my daughter's dream 17th birthday. What a perfect day! Captain John is incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating, and our safety was his primary concern. He told us all about the area, knows everything there is to know about marine life, and made sure that we saw everything we wanted to see. Can't wait to come back and do it again!

  • Amazing fishing tour with the family!

    We booked a fishing trip with Captain John while visiting Anna Maria Island and had an amazing time. We were a group of 5, including two 12 year old boys, my husband and my brother who had never fished before. Capt John was very patient and helpful with everyone. He taught my brother and kept assisting everyone during the tour. He took us to a fantastic place where the guys caught over 40 fish and then moved to another place near Bean Point where they continued catching at least 20 more. He used fish as bait and were able to catch a shark so it was a really exciting adventure for everyone. Captain John was friendly, knowledgeable and very nice. We are very happy we booked this tour and highly recommend it. We have booked other fishing tours in the past and this one has been the best and funnest by far. We normally catch a few fish, so catching over 60 fish in this tour was a huge record for us and the kids had a blast. Thank you for such great experience Captain John. Will call you when we come back to Anna Maria Island!
