“We brought two girls, one 17 years old with autism and one 12 years old with intellectual disabilities. The captain and the crew were excellent at helping each of them catch numerous fish. They also let them touch the fish, hold the fish, and truly enjoy the whole experience.”- Parent of Participant, Rockport Beach
“Made for a most enjoyable and rewarding day with a wonderful family.”- Volunteer Boater, Rockport Beach
