My son and I took the 6 hour charter on the Destiny this morning and it was as good as advertised. The ship holds 56 passengers, but we had only roughly 30 on board, mostly families, so there was plenty of room to fish. We sailed for about an hour and a half each way and fished on and off... More

My brother chartered the 100 Proof fishing vessel for our 6-hour early morning fishing trip. We went on 6/9/16. Ben, our captain, Wayne, the first mate, Caleb, the second mate, and Billy, the captain's brother, were an excellent crew. We felt very involved and enjoyed catching some great red snapper. Also caught mackerel. The weather was overcast, which was excellent.... More

Good fishing if the waters aren't to 'choppy'. We bought and paid ahead of time..probably should have waited until the morning of to buy(that way you know what the water is going to be like) 8hrs would be great on a calm day... BUT on a 'choppy' day the Boat is small enough,that even for seaworthy guys...you will probably get... More

There were only 6 people on this particular group charter, which is usually below the minimum, but the captain let it slide. We did a lot of trolling and had quite a few bites, unfortunately, most got away(make sure to keep those rod tips up!).we did pull in a nice king mackerel and a few Spanish mackerel, but that was...

My family had a great fishing trip on the Mary Lou. Our private charter lasted five hours - the right amount of time - and we had a ton of fun. We caught about 35 fish that we could keep. Captain Craig found the fish and Jake worked hard to ensure we had a great time. Upon our return to... More

One of the best ways to spend six hours. Deep sea fishing in a close group of just six of us under the expert guidance of a fishing god. I hadn't done this for 35 years and then I only caught a star fish on a rock. Everything was ver well explained and he was always on hand to bait... More

This service uses multiple charter boats in the marina. We ended up with 8 people on a party boat that was so slow it could only go a couple of miles out. Some of us paid to fish and never touched a pole. Company has no response to customer complaints/issues. It's all about the money and not customer service or... More
