We just had a mini family reunion abord Kingfisher. We chartered to boat to ourselves, not really sure if they offer shared trips. The captain & crew were among the best I've had. If fish weren't biting, captain had us reel in and moved to another spot. The boat was clean and stable. A/C in the cabin worked like a... More

Great Experience. Cant wait to go again. Capt. Kevin knows his fish spots boat maxed with great sized king fish. Great fishing trip with helpful deckhands and a captain that wants his customers to take fish home. He doesnt just sit in the wheel house he comes down and help customers with bait and bringing up fish on the deck.... More

our group of 16 took our large red snapper and many, many vermillion snapper, Atlantic shark and kings and ling. Our amazing captain Marvin was wonderful and his crew worked hard helping with our fish and keeping everything going. We have fished with Deep sea since 2008 and have always had a great experience, the boats are great and comfortable... More

First off, yes you will see quite a few dolphins. Left side, right side, in the front towards the back. The dolphins are everywhere. After the first few sightings most visitors were satisfied that they aren't gonna miss anything, and everyone just kinda stays put. After a while I really didn't care about the the dolphins, I kept seeing them,... More

The guys on the boat were nice enough, just don't go out thinking this is really "deep sea" fishing, it's not. I think the deepest we ever went was 20 feet, you will be fishing right off the bay if you take the 3.5 hour fishing tour. The website shows some really big catches, none of ours were over 4...

Management response:

The trip you were on was a 3 & 1/2 hour Bay Fishing Trip not an offshore fishing trip. To fish offshore or "Deep Sea" you need to book a 5, 8 or 12 hour offshore fishing trip. We apologize for any confusion if you thought it was offshore fishing. If you booked online or looked at the website you... More

We have been on all of the dolphin cruises. This one we highly recommend. The Scarlet Lady is a brand new boat, has a nice stable ride. There is plenty of shaded seating. You can buy drinks and snacks, and adult beverages, so we cruised the channel drinking margaritas! We saw lots of dolphins! The Captain was very knowledgeable and... More

Visited last summer and will be going back again!. The Boys got a little sea sick and fed the fish over the side but eventually overcame it. Caught quite a few Kingfish and Shark. Deckhands were AWESOME. We all had a great time....See you this Summer Deep Sea Headquarters!

the only reason this review is not a five, is that the day I went the boats starter went out. Even though the boat was late going out, they stayed out late to give the entire time on the water promised. The boat caught 15 kingfish and 22 good sized snapper, so the captain knew where to go to get... More
