We have a fishing friend from England who has visited a number of times - each time putting off going deep sea fishing. However, this trip, was a gorgeous day, bright sunshine, and unseasonably warm - on 11/17. I recommended that if he was ever going to go - now would be the time. We checked with the receptionist who... More

Mrs. Elaine D, Disappointed you feel that we should not have gone out. We did call people the night before to warn them of the conditions expected the next day. Then the morning of the trip we had the weather report printed out on the counter where they pay for their trip and we asked people to read it before... More

There were quite a few dolphins swimming around just in the harbor area - which was cool. But the best part was out in the bay when we got a wake going and the dolphins jumped and played in the wake. Felt like we were up close and personal!! We had a great time and the dolphins definitely cooperated!!

Took the half day fishing trip. Caught a variety of fish and had a good time. Crew was friendly and very helpful. I would recommend the meal package. It includes a sandwich { big burger} 2 bags of chips , candy bar 2 pop and unlimited water .Not bad for 8.95. Check groupon for half off tickets.

As with most reviews and reviewers, personal preference tends to play a part in a review. We chose to take the 90-minute "Sunset Cruise" in order to get what we hoped would be a nice, quiet, and relaxing view of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. While I am not a wine-drinker, the add for the Sunset Cruise mentioned... More

We booked after another charter fell through, and boy are we glad they did! We had an excellent time fishing, and caught at every stop. I would recommend this company over any others in the area, the crew were excellent and very friendly. They shook every passengers hand at the end of the trip to thank them for coming. They... More
