First Time!
Gaff Charters was amazing! It was mine and my husband’s first time deep sea fishing and we had no idea what to expect. Captain Brandon and Scott took us out and really made the trip worth it. It was the highlight of our vacation to PCB and can’t wait to do it again! Scheduling was quick and simple, the fishing trip itself was great, we caught lots of fish, the guys were fun and very knowledgeable, and they even assisted with getting our fish to a local fish market so we could take them home. It was an all around terrific experience and I highly recommend them!
