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

By far the best part of our vacation!! The view was fabulous, deckhands were friendly and very helpful, and caught tons of fish including lots of sharks! Price was awesome! If you are in Galveston, you Must go on the Party Boat!!

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

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

I had been trying for years to get back to Galveston for a Red Snapper trip on the New Buccaneer. I was not disappointed. I caught an 8lb Red Snapper the first 20 seconds we arrived at the first fishing spot, but everyone else caught their limit of Red Snapper at the first fishing spot too! Went on to catch... More

It was a nice short 4 hour bay trip. Only part that wasnt great was that you are super close to the people around you and if they happen to have an attitude especially with your kid.. makes for a long 4 hours.

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
