Deep sea fishing fun with family. Caught limit of red snapper. A taste of the real deep see fishing experience. Good way to start if not sure if you will like it.

Waste of 30 dollars a person. We did the 4 hour trip bay fishing and it was more like ride on a boat and stop for a few minutes and be hit on by the crew the whole time. Left an unhappy customer. Irrespective.

Customer Service: Not the best in the land although it is a fishing charter so not much to expect. With regards to the front desk, they show favoritism on bookings by providing extending payment due dates to certain customers. The owner always has turnover from front desk help to deck hands which speaks to the stability of staff and overall... More

The front office staff were extremely helpful in getting the 1/2 day trip arranged. All the issues were on the trip itself. I realize they cannot control whether the fish are biting but being an experienced company they should know when the water is going to be to rough to catch anything. Only one person on the entire trip caught... More

First of all, I was very excited for this fishing trip. This was my first fishing trip ever. When we first booked this, I called and spoke to Kayla and had the best conversation with her. She was great! Thank you for that. Very good customer service on the phone and even answered all of my questions with a great... More

I've been off shore many times before . I took 2 of my kids for the first time along with other extended family. The staff was great. We were catching so many fish that the staff had a hard time keeping up but it wasn't for lack of trying. The deck hands were fantastic. My family went home with lots... More

We are frequent guests on Galveston Party Boats and love it. Sometimes we don't catch a thing but the captains and deck hands are always so envision and helpful. If you're squeamish they'll even bait your hook for you. It's a peaceful environment that can be low key relaxation or all out fun catching all sorts of things. I've caught... More

We had a group of 12 ladies go out on the Cavalier with Captain Cody Carter. We had an amazing time! The Captain and the deck hands were wonderful! I would recommend it to anyone! They were very kind, patient and very knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back!

I came with my wife for a 4-hour trip. This was the worst experience ever. First of all the captain could not start the boat for half an hour, which is not a big deal anyway. Then to make up the time he was rushing the boat and lots of people got sea sick. It's was not really pleasant to... More
