If you really want to know the best Bradenton fishing charter experience, ask the customers who’ve been there.
We wanted to highlight a few of these five-star reviews to share the real customer experiences behind them. Because a lot of local charter companies out there can talk a big game, but these reviews show what our customers think. Short story: People have a great time on our boat.
And remember, as the owner of a small business, Captain Nate represents AMI Excursions on every trip. What you see in these reviews is exactly what you get when you book with AMI Excursions.
“The Perfect Fit for Family Fun”
April 2023, from reviewer Bryan D. “We did a 4 hour intercostal tour with Captain Nate and it was fantastic. I went with my wife and two children ages 9 & 12, neither of whom had been fishing before. Nate made them feel relaxed and confident. Within 20 minutes my 9-year-old was a fish catching machine! Nate knows all the best spots. There were instances where we would arrive at a spot, Nate would throw out some chum, and then we would cast a line; within 15 seconds of casting we had each hooked a fish. It was incredible. I don’t recall how many total fish were caught but North of 20 for sure. We even maxed out the number of keepers and took those back for grilling that night, (they were delicious). We all had a really great time, kids loved it, I will be back again and again. I highly recommend AMI Excursions and Captain Nate, it’s the perfect fit for family fun.”
“Filled the Cooler with Redfish and Trout”
June 2023, from reviewer Rutger L. “We had a great day with Captain and Nate. Caught a tarpon early in the morning and then went and filled the cooler with redfish and trout on the flats. Best inshore charter around.”
The Benefits of Dolphin Tours with an Anna Maria Professional
June 2023, from reviewer Franka D. “We had a great time with Nate who took us on a dolphin tour in the afternoon. We are a family of four. He chose the spots for sightings superbly (the benefit of doing these things with a local professional who knows his business so well), and we could not have been happier seeing a school of dolphins very soon. We even got to see a baby (or was it a teen;-)?) also. Nate was super friendly and accommodating, and he also took us to a spot where we saw a few manatees. Loved it a lot, would definitely book again, and we highly recommend to do this boat trip with Nate!!”
“Respectful, Attentive, Fun Young Man”
March 2023, from reviewer Kimberly “We loved our 1/2 day afternoon trip with Captain Nate. He is super on the front end with communication, and knows his stuff! He knows all the hot spots, knows his gear and baitfish, got us catching fish the whole time—snook, ladyfish, red fish, speckled trout, and jack. Highly recommend you book with this respectful, attentive, fun young man”
“A Captain Who Knows Where the Fish Are and How to Land Them”
February 2023, from reviewer John P. “What a great time with Capt. Nate. We didn’t go fishing, we went catching. From the first line we dropped to the last it was ‘fish on.’ A gorgeous, calm morning on the Gulf with a captain who knows where the fish are and how to land them, including grunts and hogfish filleted back at the dock. We actually threw some keepers back for you to catch. I look forward to catching with Capt. Nate the next time I’m on AMI.”
