The staff and experience on the New Buccaneer has always been top-notch. I have been out on the Cavalier and New Buccaneer and I am always having a good time. To find a single company that offers an excellent product like a Galveston Party Boats is rare, but Galveston is fortunate to have them and Williams Party Boats. Both are... More

No luck catching fish, but the service was great! The price was terrific, as well. The deckhands were very attentive and friendly.

Beware of the bad attitude of the office personnel! The office staff displays a degree incompetence that defies explanation! The degree of disrespect shown by the office staff is reflective of people who work in an environment where they feel protected from the consequences of their actions! They wear their emotions on their sleeves and blame you, the customer, for... More

If you like bumping elbows with 50 other people, smelling second- hand smoke from chain smokers, handling frozen, smelly squid, having no soap in the bathroom, and paying 2 dollars for a soda, then this is the trip for you. You have exactly 6 inches of fishing space and the staff is less than helpful, actually, like zombies walking the... More

Even though it wasn't a great fishing day the deckhands and office staff made the trip worth it. Very nice and helpful on the boat and off. Will continue to frequent their business whenever we visit Galveston!

Went out 06/06/2014 on their 12 hour Red Snapper excursion. Knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful staff. Second year for many of us in our group of 2 dozen out of 100 on board plus crew; the trip met and exceeded my expectations. New Buccaneer crew takes pride in their work and care of the boat. While most appear under 30 or... More

We took the four hour afternoon tour and fished the harbor. The staff at check in were accommodating and informative. The price is excellent at $30 per adult for a four hour tour. The on board staff were also very friendly and helpful. Two of my boys caught fish and we had dinner at night. We had a great time.

We went out for 12 hours and no one on the boat caught a fish. The captian said they would refund out money when we got back in and they didn't.

Not worth the money, The deck hands are rude and unhelpful. Gave my fish to the girls a few spots away. When I asked jim about it he said " you girls can fight it out" I will never use this charter again.
