When I booked this trip back in June, I booked for 6 people to fish. We got there and they only had us down for 5. Did not try to accommodate other than saying she could be a rider. No offer of a discount at all because of the error. What was really bad was that the website does not... More

The boat was filthy inside the air conditioned cabin as well as the bathrooms. No mention of baiting your own hook was made on the website yet patrons were expected to handle raw squid if they wanted to fish. Would have made a difference if I had known this was required...I would have booked another charter. The fish were small... More

Hi, I never write reviews, but felt I needed to say that this was a super experience for me and my son. We started on time, sped out about an hour to our first spot that did not pan out very well for me and my son. We had some tackle issues that we caused and the mates fixed them... More

If you want a true deep sea fishing experience save your money and get a few friends together and charter a boat. If you are wanting fresh fish with a boating experience save money and time and book a dolphin cruise and order fresh fish from either a local seafood restaurant or Red Lobster. You wont be nearly as frustrated.... More

My girlfriend and I have fished on the Swoop boats five years in a row on vacation and every year it's our favorite day of the vacation... We have tried private charters and other boats but nothing compares to the service, value, and fishing success that you will find on the Swoop. Ed (in the picture), Ethan and Jeremy continue... More

The boat was almost full (only a few open fishing spots) so it was a little crowded. The boat was scheduled to depart at 7am but there were a few delays so we were about 45 minutes late. They offered to extend the trip on the back end, but frankly it was so hot that by the end, everyone was... More

We were underway for a very short time when we were all moved to the back of the boat because of spray from waves. Didn't seem to matter, we were completely soaked anyway. We continued through fairly rough water and at one point hit a pretty good wave. The crew had to make their way to the engine room, then... More

Good party fishing boat for the money. Attentive crew and they don't pack too many people on. Room to fish. Great for family fishing outings.

Booked Tuesday (on phone) for Wednesday trip. Met nice people. Very choppy(6 foot waves). 23 anglers on board. Several folks were chumming for us(LOL). Captain put us on four spots in the 6 hour trip. Everyone came back with hefty stringers. Can't say enough positive stuff about the two deck hands. Very patient...very good at what they do. Within first... More
