TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!! My family booked a 6 hour fishing trip during our vacation. We showed up at 5:30am, but the boat, Tropical Winds, was late and down 2 deckhands. After waiting on the dock for an hour and a half, we were told that we would not be going out and could either reschedule or get a refund. We chose... More

Very horrible experience!!! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY , I REPEAT, DO NOT USE. We were first suppose to go out on the Tropical Winds for a 6 hour fishing trip, but 2 of their deck hands didn't show up, so they cancelled, so we rescheduled. We come back 2 days later, get on a different boat, Gulf Breeze, and... More

This was a complete waste of time. Don't bother booking anything with this company. They hire unreliable people that don't show up for work and they don't maintain their equipment. Booked twice with them and it was a huge mistake. The only reason I'm giving them one star is because I at least got my money back. We attempted to... More

Booked a 6 hr trip for 2 adults. There were about 35-40 people total on board. fishing started off a little slow but picked up and we ended up just shy of our limit on red fish for two people. Directions recommend taking a rag and we forgot. You definitely need it as you are handling slimy squid bait. Deck... More

Deep sea fishing was on my list for quite a some time. I scheduled 6 hours trip for three of us on tripshock.com. I was little bit worried about weather condition as some of the reviewers mentioned, and thought our fishing trip maybe canceled due to weather so I called the number on the ticket and they confirmed the trip...

Booked an 8 hour fishing charter boat. Approx. 18 people plus crew. As soon as we showed up at 6:00 am you could smell the boat. UGH. The boat was so old and gross. The guys working were very nice and helpful. But come on guys. No running water. Bathroom not working and the stench. They had electrical extension cords... More

Booked a 6 hr fishing charter this afternoon, told by the gal at the kiosk to arrive 15 to thirty minutes early. Got there 30 minutes prior, paid by cc and then told loading would take place 15 minutes prior to departure. Captain and crew were very slow in getting ready, finally started to board 10 minutes after departure time.... More

Our family (5 Adults and a 2 1/2 year old) took the dolphin cruise on the Hannah Marie.We were prebooked and it had been a rainy day. The water was extremely choppy. The crew was friendly and did their best, but we saw only one dolphin. The cruise was well narrated. However, the water was so choppy that quite a... More
