Four Hour Fishing Trip 6.23.2015

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... read 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

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

I was there on May 31&JUNE 1 and had a great time. The trip going out was calm and the water was blue way out. Just to see the excitement on someone face that had never had been out and seen blue water was so cool. We stopped three time and all three time the Capt. had put us on... More

I would first like to commend the captain of the boat, he put us on fish. The boat brought in red snapper (some hogs), ling, king, grouper, almaco jack, vermillion, and lane snapper. The conditions were near perfect-no wind or waves. Secondly, I would like to commend one particular deck hand (state of Texas tattoo on chest-sorry I forgot your... More

I went out with galveston party boats yesterday for the first time for the opening of red snapper season. Best $85 I have ever spent on fishing. Limited out on snapper in the first 30 minutes and caught all kinds of other stuff. Ling, aj, triggers, alamaco, runners, kingfish, barracuda, and grouper were all caught as well as ,many different... More

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
