Went out bay fishing with them to see how things were done since we brought our own boat. But, for $20 bucks we thought we would go with them and get the lay of the land so to speak which we did. We caught some fish and learned how to fish these kinds of waters. We did have a blast.... More

We went on the dolphin watch trip. There wasn't much to the trip really but at only $10 each it was worth it. The crew was nice and friendly and gave some good recommendations for places to eat in and around port Isabel and SPI. I'm not sure I would put it as a must do thing but definitely worth... More

Didn't catch anything worth keeping. Only a few people caught something. Don't recommend doing the afternoon trip.

We were extremely disappointed that we could not keep the ~20 very nice sized red snappers we caught (my wife and I). Of course, this is state law and not the fault of Captain Murphy's. They did tell us before we left that the red snappers were not in season. That would have been a great haul. I was very... More

We were able to see many dolphins and get pretty close to them during the 1 1/2 hour ride. The captain and crew were very knowledgable and friendly. Great prices!!

They supply all fishing gear and cleaned the fish we caught for us. It was a very small fee for the cleaning of the fish. We had to take our cooler with drinks and snacks. They had drinks for sale on the boat. My husband and I went as a couple but there were families with children. We really enjoyed... More

We had a great day of fishing today. We caught plenty of fish. A big thank you to Captain Kyle and JD for taking us to some good fishing spots and for being very helpful and friendly. Great fishing experience.
