Went out with Captain Alex and First Mate Russ for a morning half day trip. About 9 miles offshore. As soon as we dropped the anchor we were on the fish, pulling them up from the first cast onward. Many Red Grouper and other smaller species including a shark. Lots of keepers which Alex filleted for us when we got... More

While visiting my dad in Marco island, I decided last minute to take him along with my 6 year old son fishing. We called one charter company my father used earlier the year but they were booked, referred us to Alex and even stronger urged us once they knew I had a young child. Alex was great - awesome attitude,... More

I took my grandson(8 years old), my daughter, my brother and my nephew on a half-day trip with Alex. He was great. He put us on fish immediately and when the fishing slowed, he quickly moved us to another hot spot. He was always there to assist and help, but never doing too much. He assisted as was needed for...

Alex was a great captain - took my family to multiple spots. Saw the coolest huge sea turtle and a ton of dolphins ..... We also caught a bunch of fish! Had them cooked for us that night at local restaurant. Great way to spend the day in Marco Island.

Captain Alex gives his entire attention to your fishing success and enjoyment...particularly when there a kids. You will not go home disappointed....a week and a half later we are still eating the fish we caught...cleaned and packaged by the good Captain....

Captain Alex was great. 15 or so miles out after a short stop for bait fish. He had us on fish all morning. Grouper, red snapper and sharks. A great time. Definitely worth a call.

We started off the day with clouds and wind. We took out of the pass and went out offshore fishing. We caught a TON of fish thanks to captain Alex. He is a great captain who has a great knowledge of the Gulf of Mexico. We caught snapper, grouper, and several other species of fish throughout the day. Captain Alex... More

As stated by other reviewers the boat is clean and well laid out. Capt Alex Garland did an excellent overall job and all four members of our party had an enjoyable 3/4 day trip. We caught lots of non-keepers (mostly sub 20" red grouper) but also kept three 24" red groupers, six snapper and one 4 foot black tip shark.... More

Capt. Alex is extremely knowledgeable anf friendly. You can clearly see he knows what he is doing,and there is no question he loves what he does. He constantly ran back and forth making sure our hooks were baited and our lines were untangled. He moved the boat several times to ensure we were fishing the best spots possible. I've been... More
