Our perspective changed this time, not as good as the first one.

We had such a wonderful time the first time we went fishing with this company that we invited 2 more friends for last Sunday. The process of charging you for the tickets was... read more

These people have it all for you. For a very low price they will take you out up to 85 miles from shore to fish around shipwrecks and drilling platforms. They provide everything you need. And they've got a great snack bar that makes egg sandwiches, hamburgers, frito pies, etc. They also sell beer. lol If you don't catch anything... More

My husband booked the 8 hour gulf fishing trip on Sunday, Oct 18th. They did not call us until around 12:00 Noon on Saturday, Oct. 17th to tell us the trip was going to be cancelled due to 8 ft waves in the Gulf...they require a 3 day notice of cancellation...and we were already in Galveston when they called. They... More

This was the worst fishing trip on party type boat that I have ever done. Afternoon trip, half way out, the boat hits a big wave and a passenger hits their head and is knocked out - back to the dock for a 911 response. The equipment is terrible, only one Redfish caught, four Gaff Top Catfish - that was... More

Galveston Party Boats is a 'must do' when visiting Galveston. For a mere $30 you get to spend 4 hours on the boat seeing beautiful sites...dolphins galore, pelicans, shrimp boats, etc. The deck hands are helpful, cheerful and seem to love their job. Captain Cody was the captain both times I've been on the boat. He is very knowledgeable and... More

Worst experience fishing, no room to do more than stand in 18 inches and sit in 18 inches right behind. Fishing lines kept getting tangled because everyone was so close to each other. This party boat needs to forego making a ton of money each trip, to making a living so that everyone has an enjoyable time. For 100 people... More

Went on the 4 hour trip. Deck hands were very friendly. Caught a few sharks, catfish and red drum. Definitely want to go back and do it again.

The office failed to inform us that parking is NOT free. Not only did we NOT catch any fish on on a 4-hr excursion, we found a $30 PARKING TICKET on our vehicle when we went to leave. I went back into the office to ask about it and the girl behind the desk (young, skinny, blonde hair in a... More

My wife and myself took the 12 hr. trip July 13. She slammed me limiting out in 30 minutes. We both got our limit on Red Snapper and I got several vermilion. We had a blast we haven't been to Galveston in 37 years. You guy's were fun and helpful. I'll be booking for next year shortly. Thanks
