A buddy and I are repeat customers. We return again and again because we always have a good time aboard the Capt. Whittaker. The boat is first class, the captain knows what he's doing and the mates are the best in the business. Clean, friendly, honest, knowledgeable, very helpful. Can't be beat!

I took our two boys (ages 7 and 4) on their first "big" fishing trip on the Whittaker. The captain and mate were really helpful, patient, professional and knowledgeable in answering all of my son's many questions! We did the 9am - 2pm trip on a Tuesday but they have a special kids trip on the weekends. My older son... More

We took our 2 girls (ages 9 and 5) fishing on a boat for the first time. The 2:00 trip. They loved it. Crew was very helpful and nice, boat was clean, and we caught fish! Will definately go out on this boat again.

What an easy way to experience fishing. We were greeted by the captain and crew and helped on board. I was even offered a cup of coffee. We were quickly on our way and set up with everything we needed to enjoy a morning of fishing. At one point I looked around for a crew member to bait my hook... More

Just wanted to thank the crew of the Captain Whitaker for my second great voyage. Great family fun with a friendly crew in a beautiful spot. The boat ( and to my wife's satisfaction the bathrooms) were meticulously kept. If you are looking for a great day on the water with professional staff the Captain Whitaker is your choice!

Just came back from a morning fishing with my 11 year old grandson. Jen and Paul were always there to put bait on and netthe fish. We had two keepers and the day was great. We will be back on this boat soon. Dan
