I read the comments in Trip advisor and was a little worried about the situation. We took a charter boat for my family of 6 (4 boys). We had the most wonderful time of our life. Everybody caught something and I got to pull a shark to our boat ! Captain Jim was amazing in his attitude and patience with the kids. If you can ask for him do so.
We got problem in the motor of the boat on our way back and needed to be pulled in. But while we wait we got to swim and snorkel in the ocean with the help of our captain. In this accident we actually got 1.5 additional hours of fun!
Yes, when you pay turns some things are not included in the fee like taxes, and other stuff. So if you have that in mind you wont be surprised. I read about this in the comments in this tool so I was expecting this. In short, you will pay less but not that much less than other options.
I would repeat any time if Jim was my captain.
