I have chartered the Capt Dave now 5 or 6 times and have had a great time every time. One of the best Captins and crew that I have had the privilege to deal with.

I have chartered with Capt Dave and his crew every year for at least 10 years. Quite frankly, I do not understand some of the negative comments. Capt Dave has always worked hard to locate fish, and the crew works hard baiting hooks, untangling lines,...More

I can't imagine how this company has 11 "positive" reviews. Maybe Captain Dave has 11 friends who happen to like seamen? This guy's whole operation was shoddy from the start, and his attitude was BEYOND rude. I've been on about a dozen chartered fishing trips...More

Captain Dave was a class act - we had such a great time on the boat! We had little luck catching fish - a few keepers, but Captain Dave and his crew member Al made the trip a blast. Captain Dave is a very professional...More
