Our day on the water was flawless. The boat was clean and our Captain was very professional, congenial, and knowledgeable.Karen J. - Wildwood, FloridaBest time ever with Endless Summer Charters
Capt. Matt with his passion and knowledge of the area filled our day with amazement. Fishing for Tarpon and the fight of a lifetime, the manatees with their gentle nature, walking the beach shelling, and ending the day in a wonderful display of a dolphin pod surrounding the boat. We could not have asked for more and hopefully we'll make this trip again.Robin D. - Madison, WisconsinOur best day!
We went out twice because we had so much fun the first time! Both Captain Bill and Captain Matt are so knowledgeable and did their very best for us. We caught 8 fish in 45min in water conditions that were not very favorable..... Not bad, right? We can't wait to go out again!Sanishell - Sanibel, FLSo wonderfu
