The friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff made our family excursion easy and carefree. We rented a pontoon boat for a half-day of fishing and crabbing in the bay. Nine were on board on a boat that was rated for 14. I'd say for fishing, 10 - 11 people woud have been fine.

Went out with the friendly crew of the Top Knot deep sea on 08 07 19. If you looking for a boat ride than this is the fishing boat for you ! If you want to actually catch a fish go elsewhere. 62 people on this trip, 60 dollars a pop. Captain rakes in over 3000 and found 4 fish.
