Great 6 hour catching trip during spring break 2014. This was our first deep sea trip and we are amateur fisher people. They helped us and explained what we should expect and how we should catch the fish. Amazed at the almost constant action and that sometimes the fish were really, really, really hard to reel in. BIG SNAPPERS! We... More

We booked a trip on the Getaway. We went on a 6 hour trip. Our trip consisted of 5 guys out on a long weekend trip. The boat was very roomy and well suited for our size group. The captain Colby and first mate Hawk took excellent care of our group. We went when the water was a little colder... More

This was my first time deep sea fishing and it was pretty awesome. Caught a lot of fish. Had a great crew. Can't wait to go again.

We were originally scheduled for 10-05-13 but a small tropical storm changed all of our minds, Captain Don was very accommodating and we rescheduled for 11-02-13. We really appreciated Capt Don and the openness he had and concern for the weather and for us to have an enjoyable trip! The morning of the trip Eric was our Captain and Josh... More

On August 29, 2013, my friends and I took an 18 hour trip with Captain Don, Captain Eric, and Captain Franklin of Big Eye Charter's in Costa Rica, and Deckhand Josh. What an amazing experience! We caught countless black fin tuna, I personally caught a 55 lbs. yellow fin tuna, and oh yes, on an 18 hour trip, one of... More

When trying to determine which charter to use, it became evident that Captain Don was the guy. He quickly answered all of my questions via email with suggestions. Once we boarded the Getaway Too Captain Don and Josh gave us a run down of the boat and told us to make ourselves at home. Josh began getting the rods ready... More

My fiancé and I, along with his family chose Getaway Charters for our very first deep sea fishing trip experience. The captain and deckhand were very friendly, fun and professional. As soon as fishing rods were cast, it was one bite after another. I unfortunately didn't handle the waters too well and became sea sick. Even with that problem, I... More

We set out on the Getaway for a 6hr bottom trip. Our Captin Eric and deckhand Howie took great care of us. We had five in our group and plenty of room to fish. We caught a lot of vermilion snapper, a few sheepshead, a couple trigger, a nice barracuda, and to top it off, a 28lb king mackerel. These... More

My brother and I and our 3 kids booked the 6 hour bottom fishing trip. Capton Don informed us that we would troll fish for a short time before headed out to the deep for the bottom fishing. We started trolling immediately and immediately starting catching fish. We were catching Spanish Mackerel every few minutes! It was good and our... More

I am very sorry for the disappointment you experienced aboard Another Getaway. 1. The weather conditions presented some choppy seas offshore and therefore made a better choice to stay in closer where we experienced better sea conditions and a good fishing bite. I have been the owner of Getaway Charters for 18 years and I always try to do what... More
