Great Time/Great Guides

We did a half day on New Years Eve morning. We were contacted by Captain Maryann and Sean from the Boa Vida the night before to get any questions answered. We met at the dock and were under way shortly. We had 5 people with varying fishing experience and they were very accommodating. We moved several times but Capt Maryann was determined we catch some fish. Our last spot was the best and we took 9 keepers that we ate that night. Boa Vida is a first class operation and I will recommend. I’ve done many charters and this by far was the best yet. We will be back!
Perfect Trip

We took the late trip 2-6, it was a windy day however Captain Mary Ann took us to a very productive spot where we had constant action for everyone; sharks, large Mutton Snapper, for the big kids, mangrove snapper, Lane Snapper and yellow tail for the no as big kids. The Captain & mate Shawn gave great pointers to everyone, we kept in the bite and brought home enough fish for the family for the week. And got some great shots of the sunset on the trip home, Mary Anne took terrific photos I missed and sent them along after, thanks for a great time! look forward to booking them again!

This was by far the best fishing trip I've ever been on. We caught loads of tuna fought a shark saw marlin snag one of our fish and enjoyed the day out on the open water. I highly recommend this trip for anyone looking for a good day at sea.
