State water fishing 8 hours

Great crew and Captain. We had a good time. We limited out on Snapper. Saw water spouts (a first). Rigs could have been a little better, but you can bring your own.

Once again, we had an awesome angling experience with Dolphin Docks! We have been out with them many times, but, this last trip was the best ever. It was my wife's birthday weekend, and as usual, she wanted to go fishing. We were scheduled for a 12 hour trip on Saturday, and the 8 hour on Sunday, and then we... More

not very professional, chain-smoking and not particularly helpful, boat is not in great shape, didn't catch much (others also) -- 1/3 of the people were seasick, we did go to 4 different fishing spots and saw dolphins -- which was cool

I had the best time! The staff really make the difference. They were courteous, attentive, and patient. Caught over 18ibls of sand trout, spanish mackerel. Highly recommend for a first fishing trip! They can also watch your furry friend while you are gone if needed.

First off, I just wanted to preface this review with the fact that I basically sat on the fishing boat the entire time we were out at sea as I felt queezy and sick from the waves. However, I still rate this place a 5 star for customer service and overall experience. This was my first time fishing and I... More

On the 8 hr trip Justin, Skyler and the captain were spot on with customer service. They were polite and willing to help at any time throughout the trip. We caught our limit of Snapper, some King Mackerel and Ling. This was my lady's first trip out on open water and due to the great first time experience, it's going... More

Friendly, knowledgeable, staff. Signed up for an 8 hour deep sea trip, but the boat we were supposed to go out on needed work, so the put us on another boat for 6 hours. That actually worked in our favor because we stayed in state water and we were able to keep our limit of snapper. It was the first... More

We had a great time catching fish. The captain did his best to ensure we had a great experience. I was on the four hour trip. He took us on a longer rude to get to the fish, but it was worth the trip. To those who complain: there are no guarantees on catching fish. I've been on trips where... More
