I had a great time on my tour with Travis... He was knowledgeable about the water and knew the best spot for angling Black Snapper. You know it's going to be a good experience when you have fun catching the bait fish before you even make it out to the deep sea... Bucket list checked, thanks Travis!

We had a wonderful day with the Captain. He made us feel so comfortable on open water, we caught a lot of fish and had a great time. He spent time helping us as new boat owners, and explained things easy to understand, and made it such a pleasurable day. Cannot recommend him enough. He is amazing and we look forward another day with him!
