Our Customers Love Us
“Captain Chris was wonderful!!! We had such a great time triple tail fishing! And even did a little shark fishing! My 8yr old required a bit of help, and Captain Chris didn’t hesitate at all. Treated my son like he was one of his own! We will look forward to using Tide Creek Charters in the future!“
“Just wanted to say that I have fished with many a good fisherman but I have never been around anyone who puts so much thought and effort into locating and then catching fish. For a great experience I would definitely recommend calling Mr. Gouras“
