When we booked our trip to Florida we knew we wanted to do some fishing. We figured we'd do a boat with a bunch of random strangers. However, this place was great. The four of us (me/husband and two 13 year old boys) were the only ones on the boat with Captain Sam. (There was a bathroom/head for folks wanting/needing... More

I have never fished with this fleet but as a local know that they are great at putting you on fish. What I enjoy is going with them in December. And seeing the Christmas light tour they offer.

We ventured out in the harbor and up the Peace River on a rainy day in July. It was a perfect way to spend a non-beach day. There weren't many people on the boat and it wasn't too hot due to the rain. This particular tour was a nature tour, with lots of information about the flora and fauna along... More

King Fisher boats are commodious and comfortable. You can enjoy your preference of air conditioning with large windows to take in the scenery or be out on the upper deck in the sunshine. Seating is limited on the bow so if that is your favorite spot, arrive early and be sure to line up for first on boarding. Restrooms are... More

King Fisher's Sunset cruise in Charlotte Harbor leaves out of historic "Fisherman's Village" which is a destination unto iteself and worth a half day (with shopping, restaurants and pretty bay view dining). Leaving before sunset, this cruise to nowhere peacefully moves around the harbor through the channels, giving you a view of the bridge and shorelines on both sides, and... More

The captain pointed out where the dolphins were and guided the boat to them so we could see them jump and swim alongside as we went out into the bay.

DON'T go if it's hot. They have small four legged chairs with the seats touching each other. Very tight. Can't speak for the upper deck but the lower with all the windows there is NO air moving. Not only are the chairs tight side by side but there us no leg room, very uncomfortable, only took the one hour trip... More

Tom, thank you for taking the time to review us, and thanks for pointing out that our crew did a good job for you during the trip. We appreciate feedback from our passengers. I believe that the cruise you took was a special event scheduled as part of the National Marina Day Celebration here at Fishermen's Village. We apologize that... More

I took my Daughter and my Grandchildren on the Burnt Store Cruise today. It was a wonderful experience. Capt. Bob and Sandy were excellent! Very kind to my four year old Granddaughter and my nine year old Grandson. We saw lots of dolphin ..they gave a good performance. The ship was spacious and comfortable. Most of all, Capt. Bob and...

Captain Bob and Sandy were outstanding. They briefed the passengers prior to leaving on all the safety items, where all the life jackets located ect. Captain Bob informed the passenger of items of interest and when ever a dolphin came alongside. Sandy was very courteous and would answer questions from all passengers. They helped the passengers on and off the... More

Capt. Rick and mate Chris were below par in service and personality. We had to stop on our way to the gulf to catch our own bait. The crew wouldn't talk to us even when we asked a simple question about weather radar. They were more interested in their own fishing and weren't attentive to bait our hooks or remove... More
