My wife & I booked a charter with Capt. Rick. It turned out to be the high point of our vacation. When we arrived Rick was ready to go. Not only is Capt. Rick a very knowledgeable guide, his boat was comfortable and clean. He answered all our questions, no matter how basic. We had a great time and caught fish. I recommend his charter with five stars. We will definitely be back.
