My husband and 5 others booked a fishing trip for opening day of Snapper season last year with Getaway Charters and he LOOKS for excuses to re-tell (over and over again) what a great experience it was for him! He goes on and on about how knowledgeable the Captain and the deckhand were - how terrific the fishing was -... More

I would like to thank Captain Don for going above and beyond and recommending another charter service for our fishing excursion when we changed our number of people from 6 to 9 the last minute. We originally had 6 people booked for his 6 hour cruise and our wives decided they wanted to go with us. I contacted Don and... More

We saved this fishing trip for the end of our vacation and we were not let down. Captain Don and Deckhand Hawk took great care of our family. They offered great instruction and made sure we were in the right area to catch. One of the kids wanted to catch a shark and Captain Don and the Deckhand made it... More

We had a great fishing trip with Captain Don and Deckhand Kyle aboard the Getaway. My family got more than we could have ever expected with a great crew, calm seas, sunny weather and fish biting. This was my wife and daughters first offshore fishing trip and Kyle went out of his way to make it a memorable one. We... More

We've always wanted to take our boys offshore trolling or deep sea fishing and we had the opportunity during our recent Fall Break. The water was very rough but we still managed to catch 6 King and Spanish Mackeral fish - great that we didn't have to clean it up since we had a wonderful deckhand. We all enjoyed the... More

Had one of the best fishing trips I have ever been on. The captain and deckhand both knew what they were doing and how to put us on the fish we were looking to catch. WE had plenty of time to troll for the King's and Spanish to fill our Freezers back home and then able to catch some nice... More

Bad weather, very choppy water, and we still brought home a cooler full of fish. It was a tough day of fishing for our group, but Captain Don, Captain Eric, and Deckhand Josh kept us going and we were able to salvage a good day out of what could have been a bad trip. We caught blackfin tuna, some small... More

We had a fantastic 4 hour morning trip with 6 people. Everyone caught four or five fish each (mostly Spanish and King Mackerel). Captain Eric and Josh were extremely professional and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our trip. We were on the 36' boat. It was clean and had plenty of room for us to... More

The trip was our first charter because we now had 5 people that wanted to fish rather than the usual 2 or 3. We usually end up on the bigger party boat. Captain Don and Josh were great and very personable and friendly. The boat was very clean and well kept. The both take pride in providing people with a... More

We books a 6 hour trip with 6 people and it was perfect! The boat was roomy and accommodating inside and outside. We were on the larger boat, "Another Getaway". There was enough room on the back to walk around. Our deckhand was great. We trolled for a few hours and caught king mackerel! Even some tuna. Everyone got more... More
