Took a 6 hr fishing trip on Gentle Winds with my boys. Not only did the Captian have a great sense of humor, he did a wonderful job with the boat. We ran into a good storm right off the bat. Remarkable how well he handled the situation. Not sure how the fishing would of been without the storm but... More

Best fishing trip ever! Crew was awesome and extremely helpful!! The only thing I would have changed was we only took the four hour trip and I wish we would have done a longer one. They cleaned the fish for us, and sent us home with a freezer bag full. From the time we dropped our hooks till the last... More

We had a bad booking experience with a different charter and ended up on this one. Disappointed at first, but that faded quickly. Very knowledgeable group of people, entertaining but not obnoxious, and kept their word on dolphins. The water was extremely rough so we didn't get to go out far, and the sunset was blah because of the clouds... More

for the price they will get you out in the gulf and let you experience deep sea fishing.80 bucks for 6 hours. the day we were out we had 5 foot seas so it was really hard to fish. good crew , worked hard.

They have two boats for fishing. One is a party boat the other will take only 15 max. Went on the boat for 15 people. Paid $100 more per person then the other. The other boat actually took only about 25 people. The fishing was the same. So to fish with 10 less people I paid $200 dollars extra for... More

You will be super disappointed it you book with another tour company. This group rocks! A little history tour, we had a ton of dolphin sightings and the crew was good at helping you figure out where the Dolphins were in the water. Clear water made it super easy to spot and photograph. We brought coolers on board with drinks,... More

My brother and I went out and his wife and son went as well. The mate was 30 or 40 minutes late and hung over and didn't have anything prepared for the trip. The captain if you can call him that was terrible and just seemed like he wasn't at all worried if we were satisfied. I wouldn't book another... More

This is a wonderful boat, Hannah Marie, with a super crew. The cap'n made sure we saw dolphins and gave us a bit of history on the area. The skyline is beautiful, and I've never seen so many shades of blue before! I recommend Olin Marler for both kids and adults. See for yourself why it's called The Emerald Coast!
