The experience was amazing, the catching of fish, not so much. Caught a few small fish. Luckily the staff is fun and they try hard to provide you with an excellent experience. I would go again.

I booked this one by mistake, I should have booked the Buccaneer again. Spent more Time driving around than fishing and caught nothing. Check the currents, fishing for 30 can't be done when everyone's line is under the boat at a 90• angle.

We picked this one as it had been recommended. Nice trip out in the intracoastal area of Laguna Madre. Saw parents and a young one, and two "teenage" dolphins. The crew knew their fish after dragging a net, and were attentive with the children. Overall a very good trip.

We went out on the fireworks cruise on a Thursday evening. The crew was nice and aimed to please. The drinks were tasty and the fireworks show was amazing. We had a perfect spot to see them up close. Our kids enjoyed the music and dancing while we waited for the fireworks to begin.

Went out on 8 hr deep sea trip. 22 people brought back 22 king mackerel. Crew provided invaluable tips on catching fish, and even went as far as to make sure everyone caught one. Will definitely come back to Osprey Cruises!
