Went fishing
I have been going on fishing trips with Foster for almost 5 years now! He is a young, yet very experienced charter captain. Ride in style as he gets you to where you want to go in a safe and timely fashion. On top of that, the boat you will be riding on is absolutely immaculate. I’ve never seen it dirty. Foster and his crew even keep it clean during the trip! All of the gear provided is top of the line and performs as should. Most importantly, he will put you on the fish…I’ve done inshore trips, offshore, overnight… and we’ve always brought back something! Grouper, snapper, tuna, mahi, AJ, yellowtial, trigger, mutton, rosie, etc. Many successful trips since 2016! He now even offers boat rides such as island hopping, bar hopping, snorkeling, etc…which is super cool if you’re down in the Keys without a boat! I’ve had him take my dogs and me to numerous spots for a few hours and even the day sometimes. They love it, and he knows his way around! The snorkeling is really cool too. Foster has taken me and friends to Looe Key Reef and it was not disappointing! He even provided all of the gear! 10/10
