My family went fishing with Captain Jon and we all had a great time. We caught hog fish and other varieties of fish and went far out into the Gulf of Mexico. The fish we ate tasted amazing! Captain Jon was fun and friendly. He had fantastic local knowledge of the area and where to go to get the best fishing.

My father and me went fishing with Jon. It was perfectly organized, he was very friendly, knew all the good spots, entertained us a lot and did at bad weather conditions the best job! He called us in the morning to explain the weather conditions and made a break while it was lighting. 100 % safe, 100% recommended! It was worth every penny!

An alle deutsche: er spricht sehr verständliches Englisch und kann einem viel über die Gewässer und den Angelsport erklären!

Captain Jon Green took me and another friend out for a morning of fishing. His knowledge and ability to teach you how to fish as a beginner is excellent. He was on time and had plenty of bait in the boat. Captain John took care of everything we just hopped on the boat with drinks and food, and left with plenty of fish to eat that night. Great captain!

STOP!!! Do not look any further. If you want the best fishing trip in Florida call Captain Jon Green at Livin the Dream Charters. I've been out twice with him with different family and friends and everybody had a great time.
He's the only Capt I'll call now. Lots of fish, lot's of fun. He knows all the good places and all you need to do is catch fish. He provides all the gear, poles, bait,
and lures for any type of fishing you want to do. Just bring your cooler, some beverages, and a sandwich. Thanks again Jon for another great trip!!
