What Our Clients Say
Family friendly nature tour adventure
Captain Doug is an excellent guide who knows exactly where to find the fish. We went on a half-day charter and caught several fish, some of which we're going to have for dinner. He also shared interesting information about the local area, pointing out notable homes and their histories. We had such a great time that we're definitely booking with him again next time we're in Sarasota, Florida.
Captain Doug made my grown children's birthday celebration truly special! His extensive knowledge of the waters and attentive hosting made our morning a great success. Whenever the fish stopped biting in one spot, he would move us to another, ensuring that the fun never stopped. We caught some great fish, took lots of memorable pictures, and Captain Doug even cleaned them for us to take home. I highly recommend him and can't wait to plan our next trip!
Captain Doug runs an outstanding charter boat that both kids and adults will enjoy. His expertise in fishing and knowledge of the waters is exceptional. My son was initially nervous about the trip, but Captain Doug quickly made him feel comfortable with his calming presence and great sense of humor. We had a blast and can't wait to book our next trip with him when we're back in the area!
Cap't Doug is the man! We booked a trip with him for our son's 13th birthday and it was an unforgettable experience. He's not only fun to be around, but also knowledgeable about fishing and helpful with everything from fixing the lines to taking pictures. We loved the small boat and staying close to land in the bay area, and caught plenty of fish which he cleaned for us to take home. It was a fantastic family experience and we wouldn't book with anyone else. Thank you, Doug, for the great memories!
