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.

We went out with high hopes and several kiddos whom were all paid for..as soon as we got out, a crew member was rude to a 15 year old girl, and yelled at her to ask if she was going to fish or not?! Then, we were all sent to one side of the boat for our 5 hr trip... More

Very very sad... we have been out two times with DeepSea headquarters. The first time on n 8 hr trip and not one person caught a fish and there was over 30 people on the boat. So we figured we'd try a four hour bay fishing and give them another shot well again we spent more time moving around then... More

Me and my boyfriend went on an 8 hr fishing trip with them and they are amazing. The staff on the boat and at the facility are very nice and helpful. Would highly recommend going here if you want to catch some fish. We will be going back out there with them in November and can't wait. So much fun
