My son and I went on the 8 hour deep sea trip today. The trip overall was alot of fun. My son got to reel in a shark about 5'-6' long...too bad it got away at the last minute. We caught alot of red snapper but it wasn't snapper season so we had to let them go. It was good... More

My husband and I were really excited to go on the 8 hr. deep sea fishing trip.We had been on several deep sea fishing trips before so we were aware that it would take some time to get to the spot. Everything started out great. About an hour in, everybody was only catching undersized Red Snapper which was not in... More

We took the 4 hr bay fishing trip on 7/8 and it was amazing! We took the Bay King with Captain Evan and his crew and we had a great day! The crew was very knowledgeable and took us to two spots where we all caught plenty fish. They also caught a King Fish and a shark and let the... More

We went on the 5 hour deep sea fishing trip and the bay fishing trip. We enjoyed both trips. However, on the deep sea trip, we only caught red snapper which were out of season - since this is federally regulated and is totally out of control of Osprey and the captains, it had no effect on our trip. We... More

Me and my family took the 5 hour deep sea fishing trip on July 4th. The boat was not over crowded and the crew was great. Mario helped out a lot and answered any questions that we had. Harley was great too. He tried really hard to catch the boat some fish. Unfortunately the boat as a whole only caught... More

We did the afternoon/evening 4 hour deep sea fishing cruise. We were disappointed that of the 20 passengers only one person caught a fish that could be kept. All the rest of us kept pulling in red snappers, which were out of season and therefore had to be thrown back. All in, I bet we caught 50 or 60 of... More

My hubby and I went on the cruise. We had never been before. We sat at the front of the boat on the ride out to the fishing grounds. We got wet the entire trip out to the fishing grounds. Then once we were out there the and the boat stopped we started getting sick. The staff was great and... More

Me and my family went out on a bay trip and it was awesome... so the next day my step son and I went out again with Andy and we had a very good time so if anyone comes to take a fishing trip I strongly recommend that you come see Andy he is a good captain....

This is an AMAZING tour. Did the EcoLife and Dolphin Watch tour. This two hour long ride takes you completely around the bay. The guys onboard are very knowledgeable about the area and the bay itself. During the trip, they set up a net to drag the bottom of the bay and brought up all kinds of interesting sea life.... More

Went out fishing with a group of 6 plus all the people we didn't know on the boat and took the off shore fishing trip. The water was kinda rough so it was a long and rough boat ride out . When we made it out there the captain got us on a good fishing spot and we caught a... More
