We had a great experience with Capt. Lewis. He worked very hard to get us on fish and help us get them in the boat. Will use again.

The boat is perfect for a long range grouper/snapper trip as the fishing platform is wide open, there is a sheltered cabin area and a full enclosed head. The fishing gear is high quality which is important... More

Novices at fishing, we boarded the Mac Attack and crossed our fingers. Lewis helped us when we needed it, encouraged us when we messed up, and made the day a blast. Clean ship, good vibes, and a good haul. A great day for these two sisters.

My sister and I took the half day fishing excursion on a beautiful January day. On our way out, Capt Lewis called our attention to two dolphins racing right behind our boat. It was an excellent way to start the day. We also saw a gorgeous sunrise. The boat, with bathroom, sitting area with table and bathroom was immaculate. It... More

We had an awesome trip on the MacAttack with captain Lewis Macdonald. Was our first time on the boat and I would highly recommend going on his boat. He took us to all the best fishing spots in Ft. Myers area. He is a native to the area. Can't wait to book my next trip!
