Very Nice Excursion

An enjoyable excursion. Lasted long enough to be pleasant, but not too long. It was quite sunny. A recommended activity if you're Port Aransas.

Save your money. We were going east when the sun was setting. Boat driver, he could never be called a captain, arrived 5 mins before scheduled departure. Never said a word or pointed out interesting sites. It was pitiful. Pathetic.

We rented Fat Bikes from Camp Coyoacan and rode them down to Fisherman's Warf to get on the jetty boat. The guy at the bike rental was the most AWSOME person i have met in a while. The Jetty boat ride was the complete opposite! We took the 10am jetty to San Jose Island. The ride was ok. It wasn't... More

My son and I went on this trip to Port A before he heads back to college in Alabama and we booked way in advance. more than 62 on board and constant tangled lines, crowded elbow to elbow. The ride out was very smooth, gorgeous turquoise/blue waters, enjoyed seeing all the shrimp boats, deck hands were very nice and helpful.... More

worst fishing trip ever. The plan was to take our grandson fishing in the Gulf for the first time. There was only 21 people for the outing, so we thought there would be plenty of room to fish without being tangled up or in the way of the other people fishing. But no, they put us al on one side...

We were very disappointed. No one on the boat caught anything! The boat was also packed with 76 passengers. Most of the hands were nice and helpful, one used foul language quit a bit, especially when someone barfed in the bathroom sink! They prefer for you to do that over the side of the boat! They say it makes good... More

We won't do this again. This is the 3rd time in as many years that we have gone out on this boat and caught basically nothing.

I've been on this fishing companies excursion before, I had a good time but the deck hands have been better in the past. I didn't need help but the couple next to me it was they're first time and they needed help. I told one deck had they needed help but they still got ignored . We did catch Red... More

This was definitely the highlight of our 6 year old grandson's trip. He caught two rather large fish. The crew could not have been more helpful. What a great "guy" trip. Not a relaxing "girly" trip as it is very loud. They have sandwiches and drinks. The boys had a blast!
