We fished off the Marathon Lady in the afternoon. It was pretty windy and the waves were pretty high, but was a great day. We stopped at 3 or 4 different stops and we caught a lot of fish!!! It was enough fish to take to a restaurant and have them cook. This made my 12 and 14 year old... More

We took a half-day trip on the Marathon Lady with our children (10 and 11) and it was one of the highlights of our holiday. With little experience of fishing, our simple ambition was to catch a fish each; in fact we caught about 25 between us! Although they were not huge and mainly grunt, they included a good size...

We went on April 14, in the morning. There were around 90 people on board plus 3 workers. First off, most everyone smokes, even some workers, so just beware. You would think on a boat you can get away from the smell, but nope you can not. Some people did bring their own fishing poles, we borrowed some. I would... More

Sorry that you seem to not enjoy your trip on the Matathon Lady. You happen to join us on the Easter holiday week. Our mates work hard to keep up and help out everyone the fastest way they can. We get a lot of compliments on our mates. As far as the seas conditions that is nothing we can control.... More

A nice clean boat and we got some fish, just not big ones. I would advise you to bring your own pole if you fish often because their are quite stiff, but usable. The mates were awesome, and great guys. I would go again.

We went out on Marathon Lady on a half days charter. There is plenty of room on the boat, they have bottled water or you can buy beer and soft drinks. The crew are great, good at explaining what to do and are quick to help when needed. For a reasonable price I would definitely recommend a trip out on... More

Josh and John were cool and patience with everyone. Caught over 40 fish took them to room fried them up. Would do it again! Bring cash for drinks and snacks.

It was the 1st time for my 2 young children, and they were not dissapointed! ! The captain and crew were all very personable and helpful. Dorothy was amazing, and went above and beyond to help ensure that there were no negative surprises, starting with several call backs before our trip, to helping the kids with the most comfortable spot...

I didn't expect very much initially (for $45.00 what can you really expect). Wow, was I wrong!!! It was an incredibly well-run, visitor pleasing experience. They were professional, helpful, engaged, friendly and experienced. The entire experience was just wonderful. If they didn't feel there were enough fish being caught, they moved....and moved until they found a spot that benefited everyone.... More

The crew was great! They were helpful, really friendly and knowledgeable. There was the added bonus of fish cleaning at the end, so we were able enjoy our catch even though we didn't have the means to clean it. The seas were rough, but the captain did a great job. We will go back if ever in the area again!

The mates and Captain all hustle to ensure you have a great fishing experience. There were an adequate (greater than usual) number of fish hauled in and the mates filleted them for 3/$1. We had enough for dinner for two at our digs. Will do again next time here.
