I took my wife and two teenage sons for a 4 trip. The captain got us on fish immediately. The first mate, Ruben was very helpful and we had a great time.

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
