My husband and I with some family members took the 6-hour walk on trip on August 15, 2020. I and a few others had never been on a charter before. The deckhands were great and very helpful. We really liked the captain, he was very funny. We caught a lot of fish and had a good time. Thank you Action Charter Service for my first time on a charter boat. Linda Heflin

The trip overall was very OK. We were told to be there a half hour early only to leave a half hour late. The boat showed up right when we were supposed to leave because they didn’t want to tie up the dock space too long even though it was early in the morning and there were no other boats there. Captain George didn’t have a very good personality or attitude. He was talking down on one of his deck hands in front of everyone for being late when he wasn’t even supposed to work that day and got called in due to the other deck hand not being able to make it. We spent twice as much time riding in the boat than we did actually fishing. We only fished for about an hour and a half total including the time we spent moving around fishing spots. The redeeming part of the trip was when we got to reel in a shark to the surface of the ocean before cutting the line. The deck hands Nick and Tom were very cool and helpful. They made the trip more worthwhile.

We did the 4 hour walk on trip at 1:30. The boat didn't pick everyone up until close to 2. After an hour and 15 minute ride, we finally got to put the bait in the water. My husband caught one fish in the "four hour trip". We asked the deck hand who said total was probably about 10 fish for 50 people. Captain only had people in one spot for maybe 2 to 3 minutes, the rest of the time, we just rode around. I understand that it's labeled as a "beginner trip" but it's a boat ride not a fishing trip. The captain even said he had to be back at the dock by 5:30 so our trip was 30 minutes of waiting at the dock, 2 hours and 30 minutes of "travel time", maybe 30 minutes of actual fishing and the rest was riding around to find a new "spot". The best thing about this trip were the deck hands and they are the only reason that I am giving them an average rating.

The boat, captain, and entire crew were OVER AN HOUR AND HALF LATE. We waited for what seemed like an eternity on this guy. No one told us one single thing. We checked our emails and called the service, and we didn’t hear back from anyone until over TWO HOURS after the trip was supposed to start. We ended up leaving because other people left and we had no word about what was happening. We also couldn’t extend our fishing trip that day because part of our party was leaving later on. Then when we asked for a refund they told us they could not refund us. The lady operating the phone told us to contact the captain for a refund and it has now been two days of him avoiding our calls. THIS PLACE WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY! So unprofessional. I’ve never seen anything like it. You were the ones who were two hours late, you were the ones not communicating to anyone about it, this was your fault and as a company you should take responsibility for that and refund your customers. The photos show the time stamps of us (and many other people) sitting on the dock waiting for the boat. We were supposed to leave by 6:00 am. Absolutely horrible customer service. Do not trust them with your money.
