We had an amazing trip! Captain Rob and his mate Arthur kept us on the fish and the trip did not disappoint. They did a great job of keeping our kids engaged the entire time. The boat was comfortable and it was nice to have the option to get out of the sun. Overall top notch experience!

I don’t do many reviews but I have to brag about CCFC! We took our 2 kids, 5 and 9, on their first fishing charter. Capt. Bob is nice and deckhand, Arthur, is amazing with the kids! We all had an amazing time, caught a bunch of fish and had so many laughs! My son was asking when we could fish with them again before we even got off the boat! We will definitely go back with them when we come back to the area! Thank you Capt. Bob and Arthur for a most memorable fishing trip! My kids will never forget it!

The trip was perfect. Cpt Bob fit us in at the last minute and delivered everything we could’ve asked for. His mate Arthur was a pleasure to chat with through the trip and made everything easy. Highly recommend and would repeat.
