Fun but not 5 hours of fishing.

5 hour fishing trip actually was only 1 hour of fishing with the rest being traveling. We were given almost no instructions and all told to fish off same side of boat. There were... read more

My husband, son-9, nephew-8, and myself went on our first deep sea adventure this past weekend. We had a blast. All 3 men (1captain, 2 boat hands) were wonderful. None of us had ever been fishing before, let alone deep sea fishing- and after getting a quick 1-2 on how to drop our line and such- we were fishing with... More

Had a blast on the 5 hour trip. We caught a few sharks and Captain Kevin came down and spent time talking to all the kids on board and then let my five year old son drive the boat on the way back for a while. I have done several of the different trips they offer and have always had... More

What a great trip/experience. They went out, even in the rain. The captain and the deck hand were very helpful with making sure everyone caught or attempted to catch a fish. Would go back to them every time. All of the staff were very nice, knowledgeable. I caught my limit of shark,and a few for some other people on the... More

Mike Shaw Kia rewarded it's employees with a Deep Sea Fishing trip and many of us went to Capt Kelly's because they came highly recommended. I think we may have also done it because they were very competitive on price. Let me preface this by saying I have never been off shore before. I have been on a bay fishing... More

It's less expensive than others, and I know why. It sucks. I'm not sure the captain knew what he was doing. We spent more time pulling in our line than fishing. I understand he was trying to find fish, but good grief. We did not catch many fish at all for 20 some people on board. All that being said,... More

The boat is newer than others that do party boat bay fishing. There are mens's and women's restrooms and a large inside area to sit and stay warm or cool. They sell beer, soft drinks, snacks and water on board. The boat's staff were extremely helpful and friendly-- not gruff or weird like some of the others I have encountered... More

DO NOT BOOK A TRIP WITH THESE PEOPLE!!! I took the word of another person and decided to go on a 48 tuna trip with this group. I was never so disappointed in my life. First of all, if you do go, do not expect the crew to help you. They are too busy fishing. As a matter of fact,... More

5 hour fishing trip actually was only 1 hour of fishing with the rest being traveling. We were given almost no instructions and all told to fish off same side of boat. There were only two deckhands for the entire boat. They worked their tails off and couldn't help the way I expected. It was pretty rough at sea and... More

We went to the headquarters to book a sunset Dolphin boat ride at 9 in the morning. When we got there they told me we had to call the number on the pamphlet in order to schedule the ride but we had to come back and pay at the headquarters, which was a little irritating but that was no big... More

I have been out with this crew 3 times. We have caught our limit everytime. The deck hands hustle and are very helpful. I recommend this place for the best fishing for your buck. Had a great time each trip.
