Our first time deep sea fishing ever so not much to compare with, but the whole family (except our 7 year old who had nausea) enjoyed it and had a nice half day (6 hours) trip. We caught fish and as a summary it was a nice experience.

They do not deservice to own a business or need to be under new management or something. They don't take responsibility for anything. They just blame the customer. It's a long story but in short, they told me I didn't ask the right questions and it was my responsibility and not their job to inform the customers. How was I... More

We went on a cold December morning on the 11:00 AM trip, so the 3rd trip of the day for them. We got there an hour early like they told us and rented the $5 binoculars (make sure you bring your own). They boarded us on time and set of shortly after 11:00 AM. As soon as we got outside... More

Horrible customer service. Was lied to several times and the staff is misinformed. They canceled the trip and I didn't get to fish at all even though the day before I was told the boat was 100% going out. They will never receive my business

The day was long and the bait was small but that was fine. It was great to fish with a knowledgable crew. I would plan on going back!

I have gone on a few trips out of newport landing. Sometimes I have had a great trip. Sometimes I felt like the crew was going thru the motions. They seemed disintrested at times. The crew of the Freelance really worked hard to find the fish. Overall not a bad expiriance.

I have been on four fishing trips with Newport Landing Sportfishing and the crews have always been fast and helpful. Fast in the sense that if you catch a fish, a crew member appears right behind you to gaff the fish if necessary or tell you if its too small. They are also there just as quick to help untangle...

I arranged for my son and husband to go out on the half day boat this morning for an early Father's day present. The boat trip was from 6-noon. When they got back, I was incredibly upset that there was only about an hour and a half of actual fishing. The boat traveled out for two hours and back for... More
