First and foremost I would like to point out that safety should have been brought to our attention before we even boarded the boat. We had no idea whether or not there were even life jackets on the boat, what to do in the event...More

The crew was just as entertaining as was the fishing. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Wish I could go more often.

We took the last tour of Saturday evening (7:00-8:30). A good idea, much cooler in the evening. Actually saw some dolphins, cost about $10 per person. A good value and fun for all ages.

The shipmates (Kyle and Oscar) help to make this nice for our family. They were patient with our kids and pointed out fun facts about the fish, eel and crabs we caught. We didn't bring much home but we made memories.
