We got what we paid for. It was a small amount of money for a trip on the ocean. The fishing was not good. Several 12" sharks and catfish were caught. None of which are keepers... read more

Fishing was great in my opinion! Lots of snapper, tuna, amber jack, and grouper caught! Deckhands were great! Only complaint is the captain's grandson was allowed to run wild throughout the boat and was very noisy in general, especially while people were trying to sleep. That aside, I would do it again.

My husband and I went on a 10hr deep sea charter tour. We were disappointed because they cancelled the trip we were supposed to go on, due to not enough people, but asked if we wanted to go the next day instead. It worked out, but I wish I would have known that was a possibility. That is the only... More

The girl in the office was very rude. Seemed spacy or disinterested in helping us. We had a great time on the boat. The deckhands were great. The captain even helped us get our fish off. Glad we didn't leave when the girl in the office pissed my husband off. My little boy begged us to go .

Only ended up with a half dozen sand trout Very fun trip, the deck hands were great to help out with the catfish and sharks. They also were very friendly helping with bait and tangled lines (a fact... More

Let me start with the positives...The day was beautiful, bottled water was only a dollar, I caught a bunch of fish...that were too small and had to be tossed back. This was my first and probably last party boat experience. I made my reservation online so I didn't deal with the rude person everyone else is talking about. The seas... More

The deck hands were great, but not enough of them to deal with the fish. We would have to wait 20 min for them to get our fish off. We have used them 3-4 times and several others in coastal areas. Over all they have became a scam. Starting with the very rude lady that answers the phone. We drove... More
