We jumped on the afternoon boat on a whim and had a great time. The crew was great! Very funny and knowledgable! They did their best to give us a great fishing experience. The fish werent biting very well, but it was still fun The best part for me was seeing the dolphins hanging out and playing nearby! Our catches... More

We had so much fun and saw so many dolphins! The tour guide was a riot and he was very knowledgable. We were entertained! Great for young and old kids.

Everything was great. Went on a five hour deep sea fishing trip. Only one person caught something. The boat practically followed a shrimp boat . Guiders were nice . When we checked in we saw a small roach . No big deal . After a while a lady on the boat checked her bag and said " a roach in... More

Took the dolphin/fireworks tour with this company. My kids were so excited until we realized that the boat basically just followed a shrimp boat. We saw a couple of dolphins jump out. It was lame. The fireworks were great but we were there to really see dolphins and were thoroughly disappointed. The kids could not wait to get off. They... More

A very fun ride for my whole family. I'll say dress comfortably and in something you don't mind getting wet, as they have a water gun fight on the boat, which was actually very fun. The crew is great and very accommodating with awesome sense of humors. We truly enjoyed every bit of it, except seating, we were the last... More

We went Dolphin watching. The crew was wonderful. The ride was a little rough due to the water being choppy. All and all I would most definatley do this again.

My Mother and I decided to go deep sea fishing and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The gentlemen we booked with was very open and honest with us when we were deciding which trip to take and which was the better of the two...the 8 hour or 5 hour. Once aboard, the crew was very knowledgeable and accommodating.... More

Until we found this place! Totally affordable and we had an amazing time!!! We both caught 13 fish in the two hours we fished..it was a... More

This was by far an experience to remember. Our captain was super funny and very knowledgeable on all sea life in the area. He definitely knew what he was talking about. I really enjoyed listening to his humoristic information. As we began our hour and a half evening cruise...I was okay but once we got into the GULF and the... More

My husband, my 15-year old daughter and I took an 8-hour deep sea fishing trip yesterday and had a great time. Each of us caught a king mackerel, with my husband's being about 30 pounds. We also caught a bunch of red snapper but had to throw those back in (not in season). Someone else on board caught a tuna.... More
