BOAT FISH LIVE
For many it is a bucket list lesson. In truth, it should be required.
Captain Brian Branigan guides you through the hardships and highlights of all things boating. To the novice boater, it is book as mentor. For those who live in or visit the FL Keys, it is essential.
Boating is an activity that comes with many questions. That is to say, as fun as boating is, it carries responsibility. How high is the bridge you are about to go under? Did you check the chart? Do you have outriggers up? Will your T-top and fishing rods clear the overpass? What about at high tide? Is your antenna down? When is low tide? Is the tide incoming or outgoing? What is the depth?
These and many other queries are addressed here. You might have additional questions of your own; How do I dock my boat? How do I turn around in a narrow canal? How can I save money on maintenance? Indeed, the list is long.
The book includes a very comprehensive sailing chapter too. And, an in-depth chapter based on the fishing technique of renowned FL Keys fishing guide, Captain Jimmy Gagliardini, of High Caliber Sportfishing Charters – that promises to get you catching.
Each chapter includes a Q&A as review. And, valuable info too. Some say, Eat Pray Love. We say, Boat Fish Live.
Our clients' experience is what matters to us.
We were looking for a basic boating course and were totally blown away with how comprehensive and hands-on Captain Brian’s boating course turned out to be. Not only did we learn about basic boating skills and safety but we also learned about navigating the local waters. He’s extremely knowledgeable and he knows the area like the back of his hand. Based on where we’ll be keeping our boat, he personalized the experience even further by mapping out several locations from our launch point. Above all he was very personable and we had a great day and a lot of fun!David Weisner
Fantastic!! My son learned how to drive a boat, anchor, dock, and learned the rules of boating. This course was hands on and a great investment.Matthew Age
Boat Fish Live, and the hands-on boating and fishing lesson with Keys Boat Tours was an incredible experience. It proved not only a boat lesson, but a life lesson. Do yourself a favor: buy this book, and if at all possible, take the hands-on lesson(s) with Keys Boat Tours and Captain Brian Branigan. You’ll be very glad you did!Zach Pierson
Captain Brian and Keys Boat Tours is awesome! We had a great boat lesson and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Captain Brian is a great teacher and naturally puts you at ease even when you may feel intimidated and nervous. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I am so grateful that we did this lesson, and was amazed at how much we learned in such a short period of time. I highly recommend getting out on the water with him and Keys Boat Tours. Not only did we learn a lot, but he also makes the time fun and stops to point out cool things, gives a bitJill Barron
