  • review rating 5  My son-in-law and I took the In-shore Fishing Charter. He has never been saltwater fishing before. Choosing Capt Zack and White Pearl Fishing Charters was the best decision I made. Capt Zack is extremely knowledgeable about the area. He took us to several different areas where we were able to catch numerous Snook and Redfish. Capt Zack is also one of the nicest and pleasant persons to be around. He made sure our fishing charter was fun. If ever I am down this way again, I will book another fishing charter with White Pearl Fishing Charters.

    review rating 5  Our family had an amazing in shore fishing experience with Captain Zack! He shared his knowledge and expertise with us and answered every single question my sons (ages 12 and 9) had for him. He was so patient and kind and truly made this a trip that we won't forget!! We caught plenty to eat and plenty more just for fun!! Hope to come back for a future trip!

  • review rating 5  We had an amazing experience with Capt Zack. He was kind, knowledgeable, and fun. Our 6 yo son had the time of his life reeling fish in. Capt Zack was wonderful with him. We were busy catching fish and watching them and other wildlife around us. We even had a dolphin hang out with us. It was an unforgettable experience. My son said he could've kept fishing all night! Would book again in a heartbeat!

    review rating 5  We did a 4 hour morning charter and all of us had a great time. I took my 22 and 17 yo sons and my 19 yo daughter looking for some daytime fun away from the beach. Captain Zack was easy to talk to and did a great job sharing what he knew about fishing and the local area to us novices. We worked a couple of areas, and saw a lot of action at both. We caught a lot of snook, plus a variety of other fish. We also, as a bonus, saw plenty of of other bird and marine wildlife up close which kept us entertained both while fishing and when not. The boat was well equipped and clean. Overall, a great family experience.

  • review rating 5  This was by far the best fishing charter I have been on. Captain Zack took us right to the fish and made everything as simple as possible. He was very knowledgeable and easygoing. He was also great with helping my 8 y/o nephew learn more about fishing. My only regret would be not booking a longer trip. I would highly recommend Captain Zack and I'll definitely be going back when I come down to Florida again.

    review rating 5  Captain Zac gave us the very best experience we could have asked for. From first communication when we made our reservation to the end of our fishing day, he was equally professional, kind, and fun. I loved he fact that he kept in communication with us before our fishing day and even made a change in the schedule due to the bad weather expected on our originally scheduled day. This was a family trip, and he made sure that our boys (10 and 7) thoroughly enjoyed themselves. He gave them fun facts about the Florida wildlife, and we even got to see dolphins, bonnet head shark, stingrays, and much more which made it fun for all of us! To finish off our perfect half day of fishing, he gave us recommendations for local places to eat and visit, and they ended up being our other favorite parts of our trip. Oh, and of course the fishing was great!! We will come back every chance we can to St Pete and schedule a day of fishing with Captain Zac.

  • review rating 5  I brought my son (14) and nephew (13) down to St Pete’s Beach for my son’s birthday. We booked a 4-hour fishing excursion for the afternoon and it was the highlight of our trip. The boys had a great time catching fish and cracking jokes all day. Zack really made them feel comfortable and allowed them to take part in hooking the bait and netting the fish. They exchanged stories about the differences between ice fishing and ocean fishing and had a ton of questions that Zack answered about the area and all things fish. He sure knows his stuff! I cannot remember another time I got 2 teenagers to put their phones down for 4 consecutive hours.In the words of the kids, ‘We wouldn’t have had as much fun if we didn’t have such a great Captain’. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks again Zack! You made their Florida trip one to remember. -Ashley, Jacob, Maverick

    review rating 5  Captain Zack was amazing! Very knowledgeable and was a great guide and teacher to a couple of novice salt water fishermen. Zack was great with my 12 year old son teaching him and encouraging him along the way. We caught a bunch of Snook up to 25 inches and saw dolphins, stingrays, and Manatee along the way. I would highly recommend! The four hour trip flew by with great fishing and conversation. Thank you Zack for giving my son the fever to continue fishing!

  • review rating 5  Great day of fishing with Zach! Zach is extremely knowledgeable and the boat and equipment are great. Zach was well prepared with plenty of bait and we were on fish as soon as we got out to the spot. Caught a bunch of snook and a nice trout. Zach tried to close out the slam with a redfish but they were elusive that day. Maybe next time... would definitely fish with Zach again when in the area.

    review rating 5  Captain Zack provided our family of four an unforgettable day! He was there waiting with his fantastic boat when we arrived and we were off within 5 minutes. He knew exactly where to find the fish and we had one in the boat almost immediately. He was outstanding with our boys (12 and 9) helping them fish, letting them help, teaching them about the fish we were catching and answering their questions along the way. It was a wonderful experience and he has our highest recommendation!!
