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.

Headed out for a half day of fishing, expecting to catch some red snapper, croakers, maybe some shark and other types of fish. Captain settled us into an area where all we were catching were small hardhead catfish. People were complaining, the captain didn't move the boat because he was too busy fishing himself. He threw his line WAY out... More

Booked this evening cruise at the last minute when we were notified by our original booking (while on the way no less) that the boat's motor had conked out. Nice boat. Sound system was a bit lacking on the upper deck so sometimes hard to follow what was going on or where to look. Saw plenty of dolphins. Kids enjoyed... More

We went out on the Island Queen II bay fishing. The boat was very clean, tackle and bait were supplied, in good shape. Went out to the Jetties and anchored, most everyone caught hard heads, a few small sharks and dog fish. Nothing substantial was caught. The young guy who was a hand on the boat gave a speech on...

I was looking for an offshore fishing trip for my 86 year old father and stepmother. I was not really sure what I wanted, but Sharon helped me find a boat that was perfect for our adventure. We caught Kingfish and were very glad we had chosen a 35' boat over the 24' bay boats.

We were very pleasantly surprised that it wasn't just a boat that goes around the bay and points at dolphins. The desk hand TJ was geat and told... More

We went on an early evening fishing trip and it was terrible. Captain didn't seem to care if we were catching fish or not. He took us to one spot for over an hour and say and fished himself while no one on the boat even had a bite. Offered a biggest fish contest and his wife using different baud... More
