We booked for our entire family. Our two youngest ages 7 and 8 are bigger than average kids, but it was too chaotic for them to even get a line in the water. Some of our group was in the cabin and nobody told us there was "fishing instructions" going on outside so some of us missed it. Like others have said, there isn't an indication of the 60 minute trip to and from with some trolling in-between so maybe a total of 1.5 hours fishing. Too many people on board, lines getting caught constantly. Not with the money, that is for sure. The crew was nice enough.

We were quoted (twice) a price of $75/person for a 6hr fishing trip on American Spirit. Yet were charged just over $85 each and didnt notice it until it cleared my bank. Even with the 4% card charge it doesnt equal that price. Calls and messages to inquire go unanswered. Angry that they just cant be honest up front about charges. Additionally, trying to fish with 50 people onboard, literally a person on each side of you within 1 1/2 feet is less than ideal. They tell you the restaurant AJ's will fix the fish for you and even have a coupon they give out. Yet the restaurant will only fry 1 serving for the $9.95. If you want grilled the price goes up to $14.95. Ridiculous.

Had a very bad experience. There was a drunk woman on the back of the boat who was apparently friends with the deckhands shark fishing. She hooked into 2 sharks and couldn't control them. The wrapped every line on the boat, got into the prop and the boat drove in circles trying to get it out further tangling everyone worse. Our deckhand dissapeared after untangling my son. We had to take all our fish off and deal with the drunk shark lady. Then one of my sons caught a bonita and I told the deckhand we wanted to keep it. He immediately cut it up and gave it to the drunk hag. Then the same guy throws out chunks of our fish to catch sharks with her. One of the guys we were with confronted him about us getting the rest of the fish and he told him it was all gone. As we were coming back I talked with another deck hand and he brought me a bag with about 4oz of filets from the fish. So the deckhand had taken it and lied about it being gone. I don't know if he was a liar or an incompetent liar. In addition to that a girl down the boat from me a bit caught a cobia which is highly sought after. The deckhands measured it at 34" and told her it had to be 36" and they were going to let it go off the back of the boat because it was "Safer for the fish". I thought the length was supposed to be 33" and was telling another person on the trip about it after we got back. He told me the deck hand had taken the cobia to the back and was high fiveing the rest of the crew then took it back to the galley. I checked on line and I was right. Cobia only had to be 33". Any deckhand who knows anything would have know that. He did and stole that fish. They are liars, thieves and incompetent. I won't be coming back.

We went out fishing on American spirit. Crew was pretty nice. Disappointed we didn’t catch any fish. Everything we did hook the dolphins stole from us. Also had too many people so spent half our time getting unhooked from other lines. Good time on ocean. Relaxing but will take smaller cruise next time.

We went on a four hour trip with our grandsons. It was an awesome trip, deck hands where patient and wonderful with the boys 8 and 10. I’d recommend them hands down. Also caught a lot of fish. Went July of 2020
