Capt Chris is the bomb

This was by far one of the best finds on Trip Advisor! Our family of 5 had a terrific afternoon fishing and crabbing. The captains, Reel and Fin, were friendly, accommodating and engaged with everyone. They took time to talk to each kid and connect which you do not find anywhere. You could tell they loved their business! Parking was... More

We recently had 14 family members visit us in Annapolis for a reunion. We went out on the Sea Dragon with Captain Reel and Fin on Spa Creek and had the time of our lives! The boat was perfect for all of us, including the kids - eight of them ages 3-11 - to fish and crab. Fin and Captain... More

I planned a late, end of summer trip to Annapolis with my 8 and 10 yr old children with a goal of getting them on the water to catch some fish. It is so difficult to find an option for young families to gain exposure to the water and fishing, without being overcharged for a 5 to 6 hour tour... More

What a fantastic business to have in Annapolis! We recently went out for an afternoon fishing and crabbing trip on the Sea Dragon with Captain Chris. Everything about this trip is aimed to make it a special experience for kids. Chris is exceptionally knowledgeable about fishing and crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay area (and the Annapolis area in general). Chris... More

Great introduction to bay fishing and crabbing. Was a little hesitant when i came across this as both my 12 yo son and I are not novice fisherman. The best part was this is not a standard group fishing outing. Definitely more educational as well as fun family outing. The crew does an OUTSTANDING job working with the young ones... More

Our family of four, including a two-year-old and a four-year-old, went out on the Sea Dragon for the first time today. We live in Annapolis, only a block from the water, but FFA offered our young children a perspective they had yet to experience. Our captain was knowledgeable, fun, funny, and engaging. My kids followed him around the boat and... More

I am very impressed with FFA. Our hosts, Capt. Fin & Reel, have put a lot of thought and care into ensuring all passengers have a great time. They selected picturesque and interesting spots to cast a reel or drop a crab pot. They were prepared with show & tell items for when the fish/crabs weren't biting. They have predetermined... More

Great time learning how to fish with a positive energetic crew - two encouraging people. We first saw pictures of what we might see. Learned how to cast, bait a hook and saw an Osprey nest with baby Ospreys inside. What a great day!!
