We enjoyed our charter with Brian on the Phantom immensely. We felt safe, had a great time, and Brian was a gentleman, which this mother of two teenaged sons appreciated very much! Catching sharks and a Ray was a blast!

We had a great time with Captain Brian. He was very knowledgeable and my kids had a blast. They were great with my kids as well and made sure they were in on the action. We will be back.
