Captain Ben's Extreme Charters

About this pro

I stand-out because I take people fishing like I take myself and my friends fishing. I don't follow charter boat protocols. I change plans if something isn't working. I also am honest about conditions, regulations and what would be the best thing to do to maximize catch/fun! I'm not just in this for the money! I love to watch people catch fish on my boat! I will try to talk people out of a type of fishing that isn't panning-out at the time and try to get them into something I have had success with recently. Other captains will take your money and take you to do something knowing they aren't biting at the time! Not me! Once again - I want you to come back! I'm always on the water, I get to watch people fight fish all day and I don't have a boss, meetings, reports, or an office, and i don't have to sing happy birthday to anyone unless i want to!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Trips on the boat are $120 an hour. Beach sharking trips are $650. Wading trips vary in cost and I prefer to do them in late summer and the fall!
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Yeah, I go fishing and drive a boat almost everyday!
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I have been taking friends and family fishing for many years. Often, after catching something big or a mess of fish - they would say, "man, you should take people fishing for a living". So I finally cashed-in my 401k, bought a boat and, well..... here we are!
