My family of 6, including 4 children ages 11, 9, 7, and 6 had the fortune to spend a day with Captain Grant and First Mate Emma and could not have been happier with the experience. A clean, comfortable and well organized boat waited for us at the dock; top notch equipment was used and most importantly, the captain and first mate could not have been better. What could have been a difficult experience given the number of us and ages of the children turned into a wonderfully positive outcome. Their friendly demeanor, patience, and expertise made the day a memory we will never forget. The fact that we caught 15 fish in a half day trip was simply icing on the cake. I would 10/10 recommend this charter to anglers of all ages and experience levels.

Top notch Captains Joel and Grant!!! Very professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable gentlemen. We had the best time! Those Salmon and Steelhead gave us a workout and Joel and Grant cheered us on, gave us helpful guidance every step of the way! They fileted the fish we caught (8!) and packaged it all for us to take home. We really appreciated all that they did. Highly recommend using Lentner Rip Charters when you want a great Charter Fishing Experience! We'll be back again for sure!!!
