This trip was our second four hour fishing trip. The first time we went was last year and it was great - lots of fish and a great crew. This year, not so much. Fishing was okay, only caught about 25 grey snapper between four people. The deck hands were lacking....Dusty (I think that was his name) was pretty good,... More

This company provides umbrellas, chairs, kayaks, water bikes and paddle boards for rent on Treasure Island Beaches. We rented the umbrella and chairs for two days and were pleased to have this service. Thanks to Frank our chairs were waiting daily.

Big thanks to Dylan Hubbard and everyone at Hubbards Marina. I had a great time on the 44hour deep sea fishing trip this weekend. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The captains and crew were excellent and worked hard to put us on the fish. Also big thanks to John Martin who taught me a lot about how to do... More

If you are looking for a fishing trip with the kids and you are on a budget , look no further . While there might be 40+ persons on the boat, the staff ensured that the experience was enjoyable for everyone ( untangling lines, unhooking fish, storing fish) , including our 4 yo who keeps reminding us frequently of the...

Our family loves boat cruises but we were a bit disappointed with this one. YES, you do get to see a ton of dolphins swimming in the water while touring around the harbor and small island. The lady who sold us the tickets said there would be a narrative by the captain, but after the first 15 minutes we didn't... More

The trip was geared towards going for Red Grouper. Caught quite a few of them, however no keepers. Did have quite a few keepers of other types, Grey Snappers, Black Sea Bass, Vermilion Snappers and others. Don't be afraid to try it if you are a tourist. They will clean the fish and the Friendly Fisherman will cook the fish... More

Wasn't a fan. Free beer and wine was bud on tap and moscato in a plastic cup. I guess for some reason I thought there might be some cheap red. Saw a few dolphin and a few big houses but not too impressed.

My husband and 16 year old son went on this charter and had a trip of a lifetime. Great crew and worth the price. Smaller group on board for more individual attention. They caught a 9 ft bull shark on this trip. Too big to get in the boat, but still had a great time. More 4-5 ft sharks caught... More

There was snacks and beverages (sodas and beer and wine) available. The caption was very knowledgeable and friendly. The prices was reasonable and with the... More
