Highly recommend a Deep Drop trip with Captain Nic and his crew. We have been up and down the coast and never experienced a trip like we went on. limit of groupers, snappers, and wahoo on the way in. Thanks for the great time.

I would just like to say anybody looking to go out on a CHARTER you need to go with Capt. Nick and Capt. Will of DOUBLE NICKEL. My family and I went out on 9-22-13 and we had a fantastic time. I was a choppy day (which we have no control over). But I tell you what these guys are fantastic!! We caught 2 Mahi Mahi, 1/2 Rainbow Runner (got eaten by a barracuda on the way in, a Black Fin Tuna, 40 LB Amberjack, along with 2 other good size, a 3 Foot sail fish we released (boy was that exciting to see!), a couple of Bonita's and a 40 to 50 LB Cubera Snapper!! That was AWESOME!! You talk about an ALL DAY CHARTER---THE GUYS WILL DO EVERYTHING TO MAKE YOUR CHARTER ABOVE ANY EXPECTATIONS!!! They love what they do and the way they treat you is over and above what anybody could expect!!

I would highly recommend these guys any day!!! Our boys and myself had never been out deep sea fishing. I never would have imagined it being so nice. These guys treated us like royalty. They were awesome and more than anything, were great with our boys. They defiantly love what they do, and do it well. The saying you pay for what you get....really fits these guys!!!! It was worth every penny!!! Nice cabin, with AC and a nice flat screen tv so don't forget a couple movies if you have kids tagging alone. A trip our family will never forget #bestmemoriesever!!!!

This was one of the worst fishing experiences I’ve ever had. We get to the boat, and the captain says there’s a problem. The generator won’t start. He has a mechanic come and bypass the fuse, which easily can lead to a fire. I ask him where the shower is, bc we’re staying on the boat out at sea for 3 days, and he informed me that they removed the shower to put in a refrigerator. So we’ll have to shower out on the deck. Ok. We leave the dock and go all night out to the FADS and I can tell that the mates don’t have much experience. After the first night I noticed that the boat didn’t put out a sea anchor. I asked the captain and advised me that they don’t have one. The boat rocks and rolls all night, so much so that it was impossible to sleep. There was a 55 gallon drum of diesel on deck as this boat was not intended to do overnight trips and there was no fuel transfer pump, so the mates sucked the diesel to start the siphoning process. I watched them both take a mouthful of diesel. There was no where else to put the drum and it made the cockpit very difficult to fish. The second day I noticed that we were fishing the same two FADS, and I later found out that they only bought numbers to two of the many fads out there. We spent the second night just as uncomfortable as the first and without much sleep we decided to cut the trip short and come in early.

I read great reviews on this charter company! Made reservations 2 months in advance and my fiancé called to confirm reservation of trip 3 weeks prior. Our plane landed Saturday and we called Double Nickel Sunday and Monday (both Will and Nick). Our day to deep sea fish rolled around and everybody (family of 6) had their Dramamine, however when we pulled into the marina, the Double Nickel slip was empty and we were told by fellow fishermen that their boat was dry docked. Not one phone call. We are super disappointed in the customer service, or lack thereof.

Had a charter scheduled for wednesday, he told us he needed to reschedule for friday to get some boat maintenance done. We agreed to go back on friday at 8am. And who could have guessed, no boat waiting. After he stressed that there was a 100 dollar fee for us not showing, what does he owe us for not showing!! Ruined our opportunity to get a fishing trip in this vacation. Would not recommend to anyone!

Do not book with this outfit. He was arrested for holding fishing party hostage offshore and shooting off gun and threatening them. He was drunk and doing drugs. Steer clear

Captain Mark’s communication and business model is horrible. Our group of 6 guys had a date locked in with him for 5-6 weeks for today Tuesday July 3, 2018 and then for 3-weeks straight ignored our inquiries to confirm payment and when we are supposed to arrive at the dock. A few days before he finally replies back with information so we reluctantly agreed to keep the reservation. At 5:55 am the morning of our reservation this guy texts us to say he’s got engine problems and has to cancel our reservation and claims that he’s looking for another boat. We took the time to drive to the marina to speak with him but what a shock that he was nowhere to be found to talk to.

Do NOT BOOK with this guy as I am guessing the positive reviews he has on this site or from himself or his brother.

Paid a lot of money for a fast boat ride to nowhere. Guide switched boats, unprepared, equipped for nothing. Showed no interest or concern. My family knew right away what was up. I spoke to the company afterward, no excuses offered. Never ask for return of money..wouldn't have taken it, if it was offered. Such a poor representation for our state. No fish was caught-or seen. Guide even remarked the fishing line provided would not have "caught much anyway". They must have paid for the pictures they post. LOL Keep clear of this one.
