In 2 weeks time, I've been on 7 bay fishing trips, and 1 deep sea trip with the Osprey team. Captain Evy and 1st mate JJ on the bay trips, are always thinking outside the box and make it very personal trying to get you on fish. Capitan Bob and son clay and the rest of the deep sea fishing... More

There were 5 of us in our group and we all loved the relaxing boat ride from Padre to Brownsville and back. It was a beautiful sunny day, lots of wind so we were glad we had brought along light weight jackets. The captain and crew were all very personable and fun. We saw several dolphins and hundreds of birds.... More

Couldn't be more pleased. We tried the others last year but the Osprey is clean and the service was excellent. Food was good.

I have taken deep sea fishing cruises with Osprey Cruises out of South Padre Island, TX for the past 8 years and have never been disappointed. I have gone fishing with several of my winter texan friends each year and each time we have had fanatastic fishing. This year, I went out twice with 15 guys. Each time we all... More

Went deep sea fishing on Feb. 7th 2016. The day was picture perfect and the crew was excellent. They took us about 15 miles out to the area you catch Red Snappers and all 35 of us on the boat caught our limit in less that 2 hours. The boat was spotless, restrooms were very clean, The crew was right... More

The Captain and crew, Fabian and Logan were very helpful to us older folks. They gave us great bait and we slamed the... More

We stay in the KOA adjacent to Osprey Cruises. This my husband took a morning fishing trip. All supplies are provided. He says that the crew are always friendly and helpful. Everyone on the boat caught at least 30 whiting. My husband gave most of his away, but saved enough for dinner. You can have your fish cleaned right at... More
