I purchased a groupon before out trip to the ocean. I called Friday to make reservations since it recommended reservations at least one day in advance. A man answered asked when I would like to come I said Monday for a 3hour tour and that I had a groupon. He put us down and told us to arrive by 1-1:15,... More

My husband and I did the dolphin/whale watching. The entire ride was 3 hours. We saw a lot of dolphins, and knew spotting humpback whales were going to be slim. The captain did point out to a few local spots (lighthouses, beaches,...) Once we spotted a few dolphins the captain did try to get close and some where so close... More

We've done a few different dolphin/whale watch trips over the past few years and this has been the best. All the staff was extremely friendly. Captain knew there have been whale sightings so he made it a mission for us to find it - and he did. Such an amazing experience. I recommend sitting in the front of the boat... More

I went out on a half day deep sea fishing cruise (rod and reel rental included). There were three deckhands and one captain aboard. While the deckhands were knowledgable with the rod, reels, bait, fish, sharks, etc. I was unimpressed with some of the actions of the youngest deckhand. While we out fishing the young man tossed numerous items overboard... More

This was great the length at sea was perfect for young children that are fishing for the fist time. The crew was great, help me de tangle my rod a few times. Not over crowded just right.

Staff was there to help anytime you needed them, never had to look. On our way out we managed to see a whale and the Captain took the time to try and take advantage of the opportunity. The whale popped up within 10 yards of the boat! After our detour, the Captain took us to a great fishing spot. I... More

I purchased a groupon for a half day fishing trip for my family. My wife, two boys and I had a great day on the water. We had an hour boat ride out into the bay. We started fishing and immediately caught four croakers. During the rest of the trip we caught two additional croakers, and three little sharks. The... More

Bought Groupon for 2 adults and 2 children (teenagers). Use of groupon was very easy. Woman working the ticket counter was very nice. Plenty of seats on boat for viewing - upper and lower decks. Boat seemed a little older, but was clean and well maintained. Water was choppy the day we went out, so took a while to find... More

I guess your experience depends on the day because my husband and I went out for a 1/2 day excursion and only caught one croaker each. I saw a few others catch fish but none were big enough to even keep. We just considered it a pretty boat ride:)

I purchased a 4 hour groupon fishing excursion for my son and husband. They had no problem using their groupon as we had called them a few days prior to set up the trip. The boys had fun but only 1 fish was caught and kept in the entire boat. Fishing wasn't good but the guys had fun anyway. For... More
