    Gary was such an amazing captain and made our time on the water worth while! While the hurricane ruined our chance at chasing a tuna, he was still able to turn our day into a success full of fun and striped bass! We can’t wait to be back next summer and give the tuna hell!

    Captain Gary and First Mate Tim were amazing! They made our first tuna charter a once in a life time experience. The reel started spinning 30 minutes into casting our first line. Low and behold we caught a 600lb TUNA! I felt extremely safe and welcomed. Family friendly. Over all 10/10 experience.
