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

I went fishing the other day on a half day fishing trip and had a blast. After a short ride up the bay,the captain stopped and dropped anchor. We started fishing and caught all different kinds of fish like Sea Bass,several Flounder and baby sharks. The captain moved us and dropped anchor again and we started catching Croakers which were...

Over the year's we've been on Whale Watch cruises throughout the east coast. Most delivered on whales and all, except the one in Lewes, provided commentary on what we were doing and what to look for during the cruise. The Lewes Whale Watch is more a cruise on the ocean for about 3-1/2 hours than any sort of whale or... More

I purchased a Groupon for 2 for a dolphin and whale-watching tour for myself and my 12-year-old son. They "almost" guarantee that you will see dolphins and suggest that you may see whales on the 3-hour tour. I read the reviews, which are quite mixed, so kept my expectations reasonable and figured it was a good price and we would... More

When we got on board and underway, the captain announced that the fishing in the bay was horrible so we had to head out 1.5 hours into the ocean. So, that cut down significantly on fishing time to about 1.5 hours for a 4.5 hour trip. When we talked to the person manning the ticket counter a few days before,... More
