You have to take advantage of this. The price is right, the trip is fabulous. The captain and his "mate" were so nice and fun. I would suggest it for adults only, but I know kids are allowed.

Went out on a 39 hour trip last March. It was amazing. Nailed the fish from beginning to end. Mangrove snapper, porgies, big big amberjacks, and lots more. The food will surprise you. I was not expecting too much, but it was great. And they feed you a ton. You will not go hungry. Will and Rich are the best,... More

Our family boarded the 1:00 pm dolphin cruise. We enjoyed the ride. It was very relaxing and we did see lots of dolphin. We enjoyed the ride but we would have liked to have gone further put into the gulf. We pretty much stayed in the bay area. The captain was very knowledgeable and nice but seemed less than thrilled...

I have fished all over the world. I seen some excellent rating's and some bad rating's about Hubbard's. There are several factor's to consider when "Fishing" it is called "Fishing" cause every time is not a guarantee so that is why experienced Fisherman say they are going "catching" vs saying "Fishing". I have had one bad fishing day with Hubbard's.... More

We loved going on this sunset cruise! The captain and the co-captain (?) were so friendly and had such great personalities! They played fun beach music, poured wine and beer and made sure you actually saw the sunset! This was a very enjoyable experience and we thought about going back the next night; but didn't work with out other plans.... More

We recently went on a fishing trip on Hubbard's Marina boat. It was a half-day trip. We caught 10 or so fish (keepers) and had a good trip with lots of sun. The crew was average - nothing special but somewhat friendly and polite. Our biggest issue was with the tipping. We were told at the pre-board briefing that the... More

We took Hubbard's Sunset Cruise and we were not disappointed. Of course the main attraction is the beautiful gulf sunset but the cruise itself was very enjoyable. The price is $21.95 pp which includes free wine and beer. There were 2 choices of wine... Red and white and tap Budweiser beer. The office where you buy tickets is easy to... More

We have been to this Marina several times and taken chartered fishing trips. We highly recommend this Marina over any other. We recently moved to Bradenton FL from Indiana and even when we vacationed in FL, we still made sure we went to Hubbards Marina! The customer service is top notch and the crews on the Friendly Fisherman were outstanding!... More
