The Crystal Dawn was a fun trip! Went with several friends and we enjoyed every bit of it! The crew was great and the trip was amazing! I recomend to all.

Took my family of 5 out sailfishing in Isla Mujeres, Mx. Capt. Charles put us on sailfish quick and we had an excellent day out. Nice boat, good crew and they provided everything including food and beverages you need on the trip. Just walk on and go fishing. Mates Tim and Rata showed us a good time. Highly recommend these...

We did a half day fishing trip on the Crystal Dawn, and it was the highlight of my trip! The boat's spotless (even the ladies' room!) The captain and mate were pleasant and professional. We saw lots of dolphins, great birds, and we even caught a few fish -- little ones, but fun nonetheless. It was a gorgeous day to... More

What more could you ask for? The captain was great, the crew was attentive and helpful. Almost everyone who had half a clue caught fish, and those who were on their game caught a LOT of fish. I caught 8 tilefish weighing in at 30 pounds. One warning, the Country Girl people get 5 stars; The fish cleaners get 1.... More

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

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
