    great experience

    we didn't catch any fish because we weren't out on the water very long. my youngest son started to panic so we had to cut the trip short. we did get the chance to see dolpins swim by us so that was a plus. the older kids lived it. overall we had a good time laughing and being out on the water for the first time. our captain and his crew man was awesome. we felt welcomed. We will definetly do it again with them.

    Excellent Captain

    We had a great trip with Zach! He was knowledgeable and thorough. Very friendly and personable. For a smaller boat we felt comfortable and enjoyed the ride. The fishing was great and it seemed Zach knew exactly where to go to find the fish. I would definitely recommend this captain and boat.

    Awesome day aboard the Malia Ann's Charter Boat

    We took a 4 hour charter out with Captain Zach and he put us on the fish!! We had an awesome day catching a variety of fish from sheepshead, red fish and a drum. Zach is very knowledgable about the conditions and what baits we needed to use in order to bring in our limit. For your next fishing experience I highly recommend Captain Zach.
