This is our third year of fishing with Osprey cruises and again, we weren't disappointed. Eve and his crew were fun, helpful, and made sure we caught as many fish as we could on our trip. When the fish quit biting, we quickly moved to another spot. The crew were quick to remove our fish and help us with fresh... More

The captain and tour director were wonderful and knowledgeable answering many questions from everyone on board. The sunset was kind of a bust because of clouds blocking the sun but it was still...

I will have to admit that I was skeptical about going on a "dolphin watch" cruise...not quite believing that we would really see dolphins. Much to my surprise and glee, we saw quite a few. We took the afternoon trip and saw as many as three at once. One of the dolphins swam right at the front of our boat... More

Two people out of 15 caught one fish each. Obviously not Osprey's problem since they tried, but a very disappointing "Boat Ride". Some days are better than others.

We booked a sunset dolphin watch. It was awesome! Cap'n Larry was very friendly and the other young man, whose name slips my mind), were both very knowledgeable aout the area and the island. We saw many dolphins and this was so exciting! The sunset was awesome from the boat. It is a great time for singles, couples, and families.... More

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
