Bayfishing with Osprey

Seemed a little unorganized at first but the crew was experienced and very helpful. We moved spots a few times to find some fish. My bunch caught 3 sand trout. Was expecting... read more

Great fishing trip. Top notch service, easy booking process and friendly staff. Fishing was a bit slow but never the less We'll be back. 👍

Excellent commentary by Eli. He was very knowledgeable about the area.... fish, dolphins, local info about the bridge and coast guard and so much more. He made the one and a half hour trip very interesting. The rest of the crew... captain, and two other mates were all friendly and helpful. I would recommend this company highly. Sometimes you don't... More

Had a blast with a great crew on a beautiful day! Loved having a couple drinks along the way, too! May do it again! Thanks, Osprey!

Seemed a little unorganized at first but the crew was experienced and very helpful. We moved spots a few times to find some fish. My bunch caught 3 sand trout. Was expecting more but it was fine on a new years day. Bring some hand sanitizer because you'll handle some bait and/or fish. Ask questions. The crew will most certainly... More

Good guys running the tour. Went on the bay fishing and only caught one but it is winter. What do you want? We also went on the sunset cruise and it was great! Guys were nice, drinks and food reasonable and we saw many dolphins.

We had a great 90 minute cruise and saw a lot of dolphin and a few sea turtles. The captain and crew were friendly and helpful. Boat is spotless. Price is right too.

The dolphin watch was fantastic!!!...Eli, first mate and Captain Derrean we're really out there looking for the dolphins... even the captain would come out and call for the dolphins....the dolphins were "swimming (drafting)" right next to the boat!...the whole crew were very personable and knowledgeable...they take your picture as you board for purchase....I highly recommend this dolphin watch!!!

Frankly, we had attempted to book another company for a sunset cruise and this was our second choice, but it certainly worked out well. They don't serve a meal, which means a lower price, but they do have snacks, soda and alcohol available for purchase. The margarita I ordered was actually quite good. The crew does a great job.
