What Clients Say About Us

Your Captain

Fishing aboard the Vera Vita was an amazing experience.  We had fished with the Captain when he was a mate previously and were impressed with his abilities.  We were thrilled to learn he had pursued his dream to become a captain when we tracked him down to go fishing again.  He is very passionate about what he does and is there to coach you through the experience and excitement of FISH ON!!!
