Booked a Weds Shark trip hoping for the best. Unfortunately my girlfriend and I caught no Sharks. Actually we didn't catch much of anything along with many other attendees this night. A few sharks were caught towards the back of the boat but from what we understand were caught using bait different from what we were provided. Although you cant... More

I was looking for a head boat on which to fish while on vacation in Orlando. This is no easy feat as I am a paraplegic. While most turned me down cold, Sandy asked what I needed. While their boat is nowhere near "wheelchair accessible" they were willing to work with me so I could go. I had a wonderful... More

What an incredible group of fishing folks. I have fished on this boat at least twice a year over the past ten years and today I had the best customer service experience that I have had almost anywhere in recent memory. And we didn't even get to fish today. When I called Saturday to book the trip, Brenda explained that... More

My wife and I went to Port Canaveral to check out the fish markets to get some supper. We had lunch in a smokehouse whilst we were there and saw an advert for the fish charter. On a whim, we checked with them to see if they had any availability for a half-day trip the next day and they had,... More

I did the half day fishing trip two years ago when I was here before and had a blast. Unfortunately since the half day has many "newbie" a lot of people got motion sick. I did not. When I asked them if that was common they informed me that it was more common on the half day trips because the... More

I am one of those people who plans a trip months (sometimes years) in advanced down to every perfect detail. I booked a fishing charter with Ocean Obsession for my fishing obsessed 11 year old son THREE months in advanced for our May 2016 vacation to Florida. I paid $5 extra per person (4 of us) for the stern spots.... More

I've been fishing for more than 60 years and have lots of experience on "party" boats, such as the Ocean Obsession. Simply put, the Ocean Obsession is as good as they come. It's about a 65' vessel and carried 38 the day I fished a full day Saturday, March 26. There may be some misconception on the part of people... More

After being cancelled 3 weekends in a row, we were finally told the trip was on. The crew was nice. The burgers were great but the fishing was terrible. We were a party of 3 and we each caught 2 fish, but the were the size of the fish you would catch in a backyard pond. No one caught a... More

Thank you, the crew works hard to deliver a great experience. Bad weather and high seas can prevent the boat from going out. The fishing conditions change day to day, you never know what your going to get until you drop the lines. We do our best to put guest on the right spot at the time & tide. More
