The boys all went out on the Swoop deep sea fishing excursion and had a wonderful time! Dolphins swam next to the boat on the way out which was an excellent bonus. The ship mates were helpful. The best part for me was that at the end of the excursion they cleaned and filleted the fish for you. We cooked... More

First and foremost, trips with Swoop are well worth the small amount of money spent. Crew members do complimentary fish cleanings, and that definitely saves some cash (especially if you catch as much as we did) . Be sure to bring at least $20 to tip the crew! They do a great job and are definitely interesting and fun to... More

Went on an 8 hour trip with Swoop II today and made incredible memories. The deck hands were super helpful when it came to untangling and taking fish off the hooks(Ed, Noah, etc.). We had a full boat and minimal tangles. Between the three of us in my party, we caught 60+ fish. The whole boat caught near 1000 lbs.... More

I've done many private charters all are over $800 , also alot of group boats. This boat was hands down the best group boat I've been on. This type of trip cannot be compared to a private. I'm saying it was a fully booked trip, it was crowded but I've been on worse, you will get tangled there are currents... More

My friend and I decided to go on a charter fishing expedition. There were about 40 people on the charter boat. The crew consisted of the captain plus 4 mates. The charter included fishing poles and bait. The mates did a good job making sure that lines got untangled and that the fish were taken off the hook. The charter... More

Initially my warnings may sound like I had a bad time. But for first timers on true deep sea fishing, know that the trip once started lasts 3+ hours and there's no turning back. Even on good days the seas may be too rough for landlubbers like me. I prepared by taking Dramamine and not eating much breakfast. So did... More

We are here right after Christmas and 20 people or so went on the fishing trip. And the boat turned around 30 minutes later, we were told they have mechanical problems and the trip was cancelled. What a crazy company!

We had a full day of "fish on",the crew were helpful and courteous to all and made us feel welcome. Thanks... More

Three adults and one 10 year old boy went out on a 6 hour trip on the Swoop. We had a great time and caught 11 keepers (Mingo snapper) between us. The crew puts all your fish together and gives you a code so you know which string of fish is yours. The reservation lady was a bit gruff but... More
