  • A Not to be Forgotten Experience

    Created Dave Kurlan

    Captain Billy is the best. Not only is he a first-class guide, but he made the four-hour fishing trip fun, memorable, entertaining and unique. We highly recommend Old Florida Guide Service and will return the next time we are on the east coast of Florida.
