Had a great time out on the Gulf fishing. Didn't catch much, but it was such a nice day,which made it worth-while. The Captain and First-Mate were great guys and tried really had to put us on the fish, but alas, no such luck.

Husband went out on the all day fishing trip. Only 20 folks on the boat and everyone brought back a lot of snapper. He had a great time and the deck hands were all great. Would Recommend.

Miserable experience. Five hours crammed in a filthy boat with 70 people. Nobody on the boat caught any fish the whole trip. There were too many people aboard, we had to stand literally shoulder to shoulder. The boat smelled like sewage off an on the whole trip. The only redeeming part was that two of the crew members were pretty... More

We did a sunset dolphin cruise. We had a good time, but only briefly seen a few dolphins. When we got to some rough water everyone on board was loving it, me included, and the captain had fun with that. It would have been nice if there would have been a crew member on the deck to let us know... More

Was sea sick a good portion of the time, but that couldn't be helped. They did have bunks to lay down in. Had food and drinks available to purchase, however, the cleanliness is less than desirable. 2 of the 3 in the group caught fish. We were able to bring our catch with us. Be sure to read thru the...
