August 22, 2016 - Took the morning Dolphin trip it was great! My spouse came with me for the sunset trip. We saw many dolphins at several locations. The educational pert of the trip led by TJ was very well done. The bay bottom was sampled and then the catch was described to the attendees in a salt water viewing... More

Took my daughter and her friend on the dolphin cruise. Everything was going great until the "first mate" brought up his catch and decided to dump crabs out all over the deck, threw a newborn baby stingray over the side and proceeded to pull the stinger out of what may have been its mama (assuming he did it so the...

This is the first time we were doing fishing and we caught 8 fishes. We entered the Island Queen II boat for our 5 PM -9 PM trip. Saw the sunset and dolphins in our trip :) There were just around 20 people in the boat. It was my first trip fishing and so catching even one was thrilling to... More

The dolphin/Pirate tour was fantastic! We got to view dolphins and had a great pretend pirate water gun battle adventure out in water. The kids loved it! Then they pulled a net and caught some sea life and educated the kids on what was caught and let us touch them and take pics. This was a great day!

Booking staff is disorganized, rude, unprofessional, & dishonest. I booked a private fishing charter several weeks in advance, the following week on a date I didn't book I got a call from them saying I missed my charter. I promptly called them back that morning and said they were mistaken about the date and requested they move it to the... More

We got at Woody's very early to head out for some bay fishing. We had a private fishing boat for 3 people. After a short ride we arrived at the first spot and ended up catching 11 trout and another fish. It had only been an hour and a half at that point but the fish stopped biting so we... More

We took the 10 AM dolphin tour. We have been on several Dolphin tours in other places and this is the first one that actually had Dolphins to see. It was a nice tour they take you into the bay and tell you about the sights. They show everyone how shrimping is done and throw out a net and let... More

Our group went fishing on the 4 hour Island Queen excursion and combined we caught 25 saltwater catfish. We saw a HUGE manta-ray floating alongside the boat and a seaturtle as well. The captain of the boat hooked a stingray and let another passenger reel it in. Then, we brought it on the boat for a brief photo/ science lesson... More

Great value cruise. Friendly and knowledgeable crew, spotted many pods of dolfin, catch fish and crab with a net which the kids love. Top it off with a great view of the sunset.
