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...

We have fished on these boats for years, this was the worst trip, there were at the start not enough rods, way to many PEOPEL, we were told we could not fish on the back of the boat, one deck hand to service everyone fishing, one deckhand was his first day, did not know enough.. Front office very disrespectful to... More

The tour was very cool- we saw a lot of Dolphins but we were supposed to be seeing a lot of fish. There were at least 40 people on the boat and only 1 fish was caught during 5 hours. It was unfortunate but at least we saw Dolphins. (The dolphin tours are cheaper)

We did not have too much time visiting this place, just walk by while waiting for our cruise ship to sail. First impression is not too good. It is famous place, but we probably need more time to dig into it next time.

We took the 12 hour trip. Don't be fooled. The 12 hour trip does not mean more fishing. They took us 3 hours out to sea, let us limit on red snapper (2), and then waited until everyone limited. Then took us another 45 mins to another spot where the fish weren't biting. Instead of changing out our lines to... More

We do this every year at Port Aransas. We love this tour! This year was the best by far! We saw several dolphins and up close! It was very nice and will continue to do this every time we visit Port Aransas!

Fun jetty boat over to St. Joe's Island. Price is good and I was SO thankful they had sunblock for sale before we took the boat over since I had forgotten mine.

If you want to catch fish, this is the place to book your trip. Captain of the boat put us on the red snapper. Think we had over 40 anglers on board and after 3 passes, each had their 2 fish limit. We then proceeded to fish for Kingfish. Little less activity, but anglers did manage to haul in some.... More
