Been deep sea fishing in several places but this was our first time going out of Galveston. We went out on a 12 hour trip. The crew was awesome, very helpful, especially with our 8 yr old, which gave us more time to fish. we caught nearly our limit in Vermillion Snapper (7 of us total, came back with 62... More

Went on a 12 hour trip. 4 hour boat ride out and 4 hour boat ride back, maybe one hour of relocating. Boat ride was atrociously long. Food on board reasonable. Fairly clean vessel, "the new buccaneer." Waay too crowded. Some people bring own rods and tackle which only messes things up and increases tangles for everyone else. Deck hands... More

It was awesome! My husband caught two shark pups. The scenery was fantastic, we even saw some dolphins. This company allows people to just ride and watch for a discounted price so our friends that didn't want to fish came with us. The prices were incredibly reasonable too!

This is a must if you want to try your luck fishing. The office crew is always more than eager to help and try to make your trip enjoyable. We went on the Cavileir it is great, cold drinks , coffee, and great food all served by Marylou inside the air condition cabin. Believe me one of Marylou's double meat... More

We did not catch anything...no body did! but the crew was very entertaining and helpful. If you wanted to go on a dolphin watch that is the place to go... probably why no one caught any fish. They ate them all.

We visited the Party Boat for a last minute excursion to Galveston. The drop fishing was incredible. We caught seventeen fishes total, in our group of 5 people. There were whiting, catfishes, and some other fish I don't know the name of. We also saw several Dolphins playing in the wake during the trip to the fishing spot. Definitely a... More

For our oldest daughter's birthday every year my husband takes her deep sea fishing on GPB. It is a tradition that I joined in on this year for the very first time (Sunday, June the 28th). I was a bit nervous and yes, even a wee bit woozy during the first part as it was storming and rough seas however... More

PROS: boat leaves on time, easy parking across the street safe and secure for only 5 the whole day, clean boat with clean restrooms and strong air conditioning inside and comfortable cushioned benches (inside only). Great view from the top, they don't go out 5 miles like they say but they know the places where you catch fish every minute... More

We arrived about 6:30 AM. Parking was $5.00, which is paid at a drop box. There was already a line, but it moved rather quickly. After we obtained our boarding tickets, we had to wait to board the boat. There was not an organized line, just people scattered about, which made boarding a little difficult as every believed they should... More
