My husband and I decided to give this a try and absolutely loved it! The guys on the boat were great! They were right there if you needed anything! We both caught a red along with several other types of fish on our 4 hr trip. There were guys at the dock area that would clean your fish for a... More

Ok, so I have to admit this was my first time fishing. This guided fishing tour is GREAT for beginners. They are hands on, helpful professionals. Make sure to arrive by 7:45am. . .the boat pulls out at 8am. I planned this trip for a group of seniors 50 and older, much of the group had been fishing before. I... More

Anybody who has ever done any guided fishing trips knows it can be very expensive. These party boats are the way to go. $75 for 12 hours of deep sea fishing is great. It's sometimes crowded and you don't fish for as long as a charter boat, but you're spending a fraction of the money. I've been fishing with them... More

Went on the 8 hour fish trip this Sunday. Part of the trip was a waste of time. First they took us to a spot where only Red Snappers were caught. I was so happy catching these beautiful fish only to be informed that by Federal Law I could not keep them and had to throw them back to sea.... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much. The Deck Hands are the nicest young men and we had decent fishermen down to Grandma in out group and there was something for everyone. Grandma went as a "rider" for $10!!! She totally enjoyed the ride out and back from the Bay and sat in the Galley in AC while we fished. WE DID... More

We did the 12-hour deep sea trip, which was touch and go at first. There were concerns, according to the desk manager, about high swells (6-feet +) because of an overnight storm. But as luck would have it, we were able to do the trip. Heading out was a bit rough. Very choppy, and the captain had to slow down... More

The only person on the 4 hour boat ride who walked away with a fish was a young boy who caught a small hammerhead shark. My 6 fisherman caught 10 fish that they released back because 1) too small and 2) the guy cutting them said they were fish that weren't good to eat anyway. Didn't realize we booked a... More

We brought 3 children, 2 teens, and 2 adults on our 8 AM bay tour on the Cavalier. We all had a great time. I like to read the reviews (clearly) and was a little worried that we'd be met by a surley desk manager and a rude boat crew. Let me assure you that they all couldn't have been... More

Second time around for us. First was an eight hour trip 25 years ago with our son. They got us on the fish. This one was the four hour jetty trip with one of our daughter and all four of the grandchildren. They got us on the fish again. This time near a jetty close to the shipping channel. Our... More

We took the 4 hour morning bay fishing trip with 11 YO grandson and 9 YO granddaughter. The boat was about half full and was quite comfortable. It would have been pretty crowded if it had been full. The cabin was air conditioned, there were his and hers bathrooms, and having reasonably priced food onboard was a plus. After having... More
