My family of five (3 boys ages 11 to 21) had a blast with Getaway. Captain Don was easy to talk with about the trip and had everything ready for our arrival. Josh was very attentive to make sure every line was ready for a catch. He was respectful and able to relate to all ages. After maxing out our... More

Captian Don and Josh were great. We had a great day fishing caught lots of fish. The boat is clean and very nice. But the crew and the fish made the trip. Will be back for sure

My family and I had an awesome and fun time fishing with Captain Ruben and deckhand Thad! Don't worry if the water is a little "sporty". These guys will have you taken care of! Highly recommended to anyone! Had some great laughs and caught some awesome fish! Will be doing this charter again next year!

Met up with Don and our deck hand Josh at 6:30 am for a six hour. They put us on Spanish Mackerel right away and caught a bunch. Then worked us into the Amberjack. Really went the extra mile to pit us on fish. My dad and I both caught Amberjack. They'll hook you up! Don't bother looking any further!

Captan Reuben sat down with us and went over the game plan, I told him I was more interested in the vermillion and amberjacks so he sped off into the horizon to get us out to the vermillion and immediately we caught about 23 keepers. Then on our way back, we tried out luck with some amberjack fishing and to... More

We had such a great time on our first deep sea fishing trip. We caught Spanish and King mackerel, everyone caught something and had such an awesome experience. Thad, our deckhand suggested a dip recipe for the mackerel, and let me say OMG! It was so yummy! We will never forget our first fishing trip!!

The trip was everything and more as advertised. They catered or 6 hour trip based on our preference. My family had a blast. The 7.5 ft. 250lb. Bull shark was the highlight of the trip. We will definitely do thus again next year.
