Told I could have refund or come back the next day but no offers of anything like a discount for their screwups. Came back next day, trip got late start even though website says absolutely NO late starts!!!!... More

Went out with my Dad and 13yr old daughter. Deck hands were rude and cursed a lot. The first hour of fishing my dad and I had no fishing poles. The deck hands said they were too busy landing fish of other fishermen on board and untangling lines. The captain took 30 minutes each time to set anchor. After 4... 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 .

Took the 4 hour bay / jetty trip Unfortunately, we ended catching quite a few hard head catfish and a few sharks. 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
