While you're never guaranteed a cooler full of keepers, the Crystal Dawn headboat is a great time. Friendly mates and a knowledgable captain made for a fun morning even though the fishing wasn't great. Everyone caught a couple. Easy way to spend a morning fishing.

We took our annual evening cruise on the Crystal Dawn and we had a great time. The crew were so informative and pleasant ! The cruise was on the day of Hurricane Arthur and we were so pleased to be able to get it in before the evacuation. The boat is always clean and the trip very relaxing and pleasant... More

This was my first time fishing and all I wanted to do was catch some fish; I did't care the size or kind. This was the day of hurricane Arthur so no one was able to catch a lot of quality fish; this wasn't anyone's fault, just one of those things. The boat was very clean. The passengers got a... More

Out of 45 people on the crystal dawn there were only 4 keepers all below 11". The hooks we used were rusty and too small. The bait they gave us was old frozen squid cut up in smaller than 1inch sections. The "mates" were next to useless especially if you weren't comfortable baiting and removing your own fish (thankfully I... More

Our family of four were fortunate to book this sunset tour at the last minute after another company cancelled 15 minutes prior to our departure because of rain on the mainland. The sunset tour was very relaxing, views were beautiful, and the boat was spacious and clean. The first mate went around and volunteered to take pictures for groups. There... More

First I want to tell you that I have been on many charter fishing trips in Florida and Lake Erie. This is the worst fishing trip ever, no one caught any fish to bring home. There was about 30 people on this trip and when I asked the captain about having fish finders, he said that there wasn't really a... More

Typical head boat experience. We went for the afternoon trip. The morning trip caught nothing. Neither did we. Captain followed standard head boat protocol. Take us the junk spot, move 4-5 times and try to get some luck at the "money spot" at the end. Not today. If you want a nice boat sightseeing trip where you get to hold... More

We had 9 ladies who took the sunset cruise this evening and it was wonderful. Although we arrived 30 minutes early as instructed when booking the trip, communications got mixed up with their staff and we ended up waiting at the dock for 25 minutes or more prior to their showing up to take us out, we enjoyed our cruise...

I booked a wreck/bottom fishing trip on the Country Girl for my Father in Law and myself on our recent trip to Nags Head. We were originally booked for a Friday trip but the wind was blowing pretty well so they had to postpone us, luckily only for 1 day. We left the dock and started on our way, after... More
