We did the half day charter with my two young children in June 2018. First, Capt. JJ took us to the Sombrero Reef for some morning snorkeling. The fish were plentiful and colorful, the reef was very active. I was a little nervous for my kids because they had no experience swimming in deep water, but Cap had a nice method for that: he strung out a line for the kids to hold onto and then had them put foam noodles under their arms so they could stay afloat (life jackets are too buoyant and would have impaired the ability to look under water), my boyfriend and I stayed by them and Cap stayed on board. The kids were all smiles and loved it! Then Cap took us out a few miles for some snapper fishing. We caught about 7 or 8 including a mackerel. We had fun watching the Frigate birds fighting over the fish. It was an all around great day. Capt. JJ prepped our catch for us and within a few hours we were eating our very fresh fish at a local restaurant! Lazy Days South was the restaurant. Awesome charter. I would totally recommend Capt,. JJ. This is great for families. Just remember to bring a cooler with food and water, and there is also a "head" on board. We'll definitely look you up again when we're back in town. The kids nwo swim like fish and love deep water, lol. Thaks, Capt. JJ!

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you to our Capt. JJ for a fantastic fishing trip we had with him recently. Although the fish were not biting that well, he worked so hard and ensured we had our fish for dinner. His knowledge and guidance made it so enjoyable. His boat was spotless and accommodated our party easily. We were so impressed that we have also booked our snorkel and sunset cruise. Looking forward to it."

"We had an awesome time with Capt JJ. Full day trip was great and reasonably priced. He is very flexible. We spent part of the day in the Gulf Stream fishing for Dolphinfish and the latter half reef fishing. Very friendly. Definitely will seek him out next trip."

"Had a wonderful time on a Sunset Cruise this past weekend. Walked over from Skipjack Resort... less than a block away. Very laid back atmosphere but Capt JJ was very attentive to us.... at one point he stopped the boat and suggested he take a picture of us because of the beautiful conditions. Pointed out points of interest but was never intrusive or in your face like so many tour operators can be. Perfect way to end a wonderful weekend get away."

"Our family had a wonderfully fun day out on the water with Captain JJ. We booked a combo snorkel and fishing charter. Captain JJ is incredibly kind, and very knowledgeable about the area and fishing. He made us feel very comfortable and worked hard to make sure we got a good catch. Snorkeling at Sombrero reef was unforgettable. This excursion will be a cherished memory for our family."

"Captain JJ went above and beyond to make our trip great. He made sure my son Henry had a great time and we even did some snorkeling. Put us on Mahi right away and we had a blast. He knows his stuff and the atmosphere on the boat was chill and fun the whole time. Great boat and gear as well."

Had such a great time catching fish, Capt JJ put us on a boat load of snapper and completed some of my bucket list. I caught 40 lb barracuda, 140lb shark and a 17 1/2" grouper. Thanks JJ

My wife and I went on a charter with Capt. JJ. We had an amazing time! He worked with our schedule on our short trip to fit us in for a 3/4 day trip. We got plenty of good sized yellow snapper. And a nice Spanish mackerel. Got to snorkel the protected reef, absolutely breathtaking. He was very knowledgeable about the keys and knows everyone. He put us right on the fish. Wouldnt use any other charters in the future. We will always be booking with Capt. JJ

This was an absolutely amazing day with a safe and knowledgeable Captain. We took the family out on his charter boat and had a great time. Captain JJ was extremely helpful and the guys caught about 15 yellow tail, while I caught sea sickness. Lol! He was so concerned that we were all ok and were catching fish. It was a great day and we made some fantastic family memories! Thank you Captain JJ!!

My 18 year old daughter, 16 year old son and I spent the day with Capt. JJ today. We took a 3/4 day trip in hopes of some Mahi and possibly Black Fin Tuna. Despite Capt JJs honesty saying fishing has been tough, he still put us on the fish. We caught Mahi, Barracuda and black fin tuna!! Capt. JJ works hard to find the fish and he was successful!! He is an honest, fun and super informative Captain that will do everything for you OR he will teach you how to do it for yourself!! We will certainly fish with him again if we have the chance!!! THANKS JJ for a great day!!!

Capt. JJ is the man! Super knowledgeable about everything from fishing to lobstering to snorkeling and diving. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We were able to get on some Yellowtail Snapper and some Mahi. I would recommend him to anybody and we can’t wait to get back down for lobster season next year. Thanks again JJ!
