We went out twice with these guys. They work very hard all day long to get fish. A lot of laughter on board with a lot of fish. Jordan and Eric are wonderful captains. Can't wait to go back. Thank you.

I've been coming to Homer for 8 years and been on various charters, Capt Jordan was the best one yet. Super friendly and down to earth. Will definitely be back.
