Our Captain Scott and first mate Taylor were excellent! They really knew what they were doing and streamlined the entire process, making for an awesome experience! They were friendly and very accommodating. Scott navigated the boat like a champion. I had such a great time! We caught many fish and the entire experience was wonderful. I highly recommend Paradise Outfitters

I flew over to Louisiana from Tampa, Florida for a couple days of tuna fishing with Captains Hunter and Drew. It was absolutely incredible! Captain Hunter is professional and extremely knowledgable about fishing around the rigs. Drew is very determined on the water and works hard to put customers on the fish. These guys are the real deal down in Venice and their experience put me on some absolute monsters. The first fish we hooked into was a ~300lb blue marlin! The fish was safely released after a two-hour battle which nearly brought me to my knees. We followed up with a wahoo, blackfin tunas, and some big yellowfin tunas. Words don't really describe the fishing you'll get with Paradise Outfitters; it's something that must be experienced.

Had a great first experience fishing for Tuna. Captain Rene and Deckhand Drew put us on the fish early and we quickly hit our limit. Crew did a great job showing us the ropes and got us back worn out and ready to come back for more. High lite of the day was the 2 1/2 hr fight for a monster swordfish that unfortunately became wrapped up in the leader and broke off under the boat as we attempted to harpoon the beast..........these guys know what they are doing so come see them; you wont be sorry.

By far the BEST offshore charter we've ever had! Capt Scott and Mike were amazing and worked their tails off for us! We hired Paradise Outfitters for a two day charter and both days we slayed the tuna!! What a great experience these guys gave us! 41 ft cats were fast and clean. Booking with this outfit is a no brainer!! They will be part of our yearly corporate charter from here on out! Great job guys!
