Captain Brad – I thought Sunday was the nicest service/memorial/burial I have ever been part of. I think you and your demeanor were perfect….You were respectful that it was our family day but you were personable and took part in it in exactly the right way. My mother really liked you and she is tough nut...
If you ever needed a recommendation for your business or for you I would give you the highest possible commendations and strongest recommendation. So, if you have a family who is considering, have them call me up or send a note. Thank you for making a really awful day a nice memorable one. Every one of us was surprised by the fact that this service could be remembered as lovely.

Peaceful, pretty, vastly superior to a traditional, depressing funeral and dropping someone into a hole in the ground. We did this based on my brother’s wishes. But now I’d think about making it my own request. Well managed and executed. No surprises, any expected situations handled by Capt. Brad. Most of all my Mom didn’t have to make any decisions on the day, everything was effectively handled.
The elder Mrs. Hunt called Capt. Brad White “a class act.” This is a compliment rarely given, and important to her daughters on this crummy, crummy day. You got it because you were sensitive enough to take our lead on the service details, and you struck the perfect attitude with her, personally, aboard. The day was, to the three of us, about giving Mom some long-denied, well-deserved peace. You contributed mightily.

Thanks so much to Capt’s Brad and Tim and their crew for helping us celebrate our parents’ lives in our own very special and unique way! We were able to relax and enjoy our time together, knowing we were in such caring and competent hands. It was fun to share our music, memories and laughter with you – hope you enjoyed the pepperoni, too! We appreciate your kind words of sympathy, and the opportunity to say goodbye to our folks in such a beautiful and meaningful setting. The event was exactly what we hoped for, and met our parents’ wishes to a tee! And thanks especially, too, for ordering the remarkable sunset on their behalf!
With warmest regards,

Thanks for yesterday's tour of the South Shore! It was nice to get our family out on the water for a change. It was a perfect day for fishing and the nautical perspective of the area was a great education - especially the osprey sightings and the peek at Steve Tyler's [of Aerosmith] seaside place…. You have a gorgeous boat and a story for every turn along the coast.
Kevin H. - Boston, MA
We all had a blast. Excellent (and very knowledgeable ) service. Hopefully we'll be aboard again soon.

Mark and I want to thank you for our wonderful moon cruise! That was such a nice evening..... great weather, beautiful moon and lots of laughs, it doesn't get any better than that! Brad... we are so impressed with your skills! You have a beautiful boat.
Enjoy the summer!
Thanks so much,
Lynn & Mark N. -Duxbury, MA
Thank you so much for the fun night we had on the boat! I had never seen the bonfires and fireworks on Humarock before and it was spectacular, especially from the deck of the beautiful White Cap. Truly an evening to remember...Brad, I hope you have a very successful season. You are a super Captain!

My wife and I are Captain Brad White's biggest fans. Our family chartered with Brad, catching more fish than we could handle while spotting three species of whales, and in the process fell in love with his character. So much so, we asked Brad to marry us. Not only did Brad agree, but he personally wrote much of our service -- and it was stunning. Our wedding day was perfect and Brad played a huge role in making it so.

I wanted to send you an e-mail to thank you for the boat ride last week end. It was good to return home to Scituate to see family and show Holly where I grew up, but the opportunity to go out on the White cap really was the catalyst for the trip down from Maine.
Holly, coming from Kansas, had never seen a whale before let alone the multiple pods of Humpbacks bubble feeding that afternoon, in-fact I think her only experience on the ocean was a short ferry ride. Her first real oceanic adventure was as impressive and enjoyable as I could have ever hoped for.
As you know I had been a commercial fisherman for many years and can honestly say that your professionalism and sense of humor made for one of the most enjoyable afternoons I've had at sea.
Thanks again Captain!

Dear Capt. Brad,
I want to thank you, Matt and Patrick for providing an experience of a lifetime for myself and my family.
My son Joe, Jr. was truly thrilled by the experience of bringing in that large 53 inch bluefin tuna and we all were thrilled with the tuna, bluefish and striper catches. Your skills, together with a little bit of fisherman’s luck on the day of our charter provided lifetime memories for my grandchildren, Kevin and Kelly.
The fact that a large bluefin tuna was hooked before your crew could get four lines into the water provided an opportunity for us to attempt catching bluefish and stripers as well. When all three types of fish were pulled in, you called it a “grand slam”, which is special.
I want to complement you and your mates for a first class operation. I would not hesitate to recommend White Cap Charters. We found it to be a fantastic experience and are sure that anyone who puts a White Cap charter to the test will come to the same conclusion.
Oh! by the way, my share of the tuna was great. I can see why the Japanese find blue fin as a choice sushi fish. Would you believe that the grandchildren Kevin and Kelly have been asking when we can go fishing with you again. I sense that, for Kevin and Kelly, fishing in Paw Paw lake in Michigan will never again be satisfying for them.
Again, thanks for a memorable charter. Well-done White Cap Charters.

Thanks so much for the pictures! I got them today and my 13 year old son has already created a slide show with music. We really had a fabulous time!! It was one of the absolute best days I have ever had on the water (and I have had a ton!). The guys are still smiling!
You and Joe are unsurpassed in both technical knowledge (boats, gear, tuna, fishing, geography, and all things nautical, as well as very interesting to talk to on other stuff), happy to share your knowledge, and have a genuine enthusiasm for being out on the water with all these first rate toys and opportunities - you guys were a delight to spend the day with!
Watching the sun rise on a beautiful morning, looking for the green flash, steaming out to the SW corner on flat seas, hot coffee in hand, anticipating the action to come, is I think truly one of the best experiences on earth - something everyone should have.
Catching tuna (whether you are fighting the fish or cheering) was a terrific thrill for us all! And the bass were fun too. And those up-close breaching whales on the way back really topped it off. You guys really know your stuff and helped us to actively participate in all the goings on. Your boat and gear are the best, and spotless. Lunch was great - including our own freshest ever sushi!
I really can't say enough about how you and Joe conducted such a highly professional and fun operation - it really hit the spot with us. Thanks for a really memorable day. We'll be back!
Mark D. Cohasset, MA
Dearest Capt Brad,
Just a note to say "THANK YOU" for the BEST time I've had in over 30 years!!! The whales were unbelieveable...and I CAUGHT A TUNA!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again for a memory of a lifetime!
Lizzo F. Marion, MA and Venice FL,
I wanted to thank you so much for taking the time to get Heather, Michelle and I out on White Cap last Thursday night for our rehearsal aboard. Not only was that trip incredibly productive, it was a lot of fun. I cannot thank you enough. It completely put our minds at ease on the getting married while aboard process as well.
Chuck K. Dedham MA
Thanks so much for all your help [with burial at sea]... We really really appreciate you making the whole process go very smoothly.
Courtney P, N. Reading MA
Thank you for an **AMAZING ** day on the water! I was very impressed with absolutely everything--the boat, the technology, the sights and especially your knowledge of boating and how well the tour was put together. We are both very grateful for your hospitality
Johneth and Jason, Franklin, MA
I just wanted to send you my email address and to thank you again for taking Craig and I out fishing last weekend I had a blast and really enjoyed reeling in my first tuna. I cooked it up for my girlfriend and a couple other friends and they all loved it.
My father cooked up the rest with my mother and my grandmother and they all greatly enjoyed and appreciated it also.
I have weekend watch this weekend which means that I will have to stay at school all weekend so I will not be available to go fishing with you but please let me know the next time that you need a mate and id be more than happy to go.
I can't tell you enough how much fun I had going out to Stella. You've got me hooked on fishing even more than I already was and I hope that someday I can have a boat as nice as yours. Talk to you soon.
Brian W. Scituate, MA
