Comments This was a fantastic bucket list trip to absolutely amazing reefs and fish. Captain Craig and crew were fantastic. Our group of guests were awesome and the tales endless and entertaining. This is a real adventure trip. The boat was set up nicely and the accommodations basic but clean and modern. The most amazing reefs we have seen anywhere.

how did you find this trip? I have been searching and Eastern Fields is not on the schedule for that boat for 2014 coming up. Was this a full boat charter?

Not a charter. We asked for certain dates and I believe he just built the trip around our dates
