First thing's first, if you easily get sea sick then you may need to reconsider. I personally can take the rocking but not everyone can. We went in a group of 7, and 3 of us chummed the water that day. I suggest bringing plenty of dramamine and ginger ale with you before you take off as the waves can make you nauseous. Of course, if you've ever been fishing on a boat than this is old news. If you do have a sensitive stomach, you may get sick initially but will usually be fine after you throw up. Sorry to be gross, but these are good things to know before you cast off.
If you can get past the seasick aspect than you'll really have a great time. Deep sea fishing isn't as complicated as fresh water fishing cause all that you need to do is drop your line straight down and wait for a bite. Our boat did very well in catching all sorts of exotic fish but most of them had to be thrown back due to them being "off season" catch. A few folks did get to take home some great fish and one person even caught a 5 foot lemon shark that got divy'd up amongst the entire boat. I personally didn't catch anything but got plenty of bites.
We went out for 5 hours and the time went pretty fast. There is food on the boat that's included in the admission fee (burger, hot dog, etc.) and there was unlimited draft beer which was a plus. There's an indoor cabin with plenty of tables where you can eat, relax or play cards while waiting for the boat to arrive at it's location. I brought a light windbreaker to help keep the wind off as the boat was in motion but didn't need it after we anchored. They're pretty good about you bringing coolers/bags aboard if necessary.
One thing I will recommend that I felt like an idiot for forgetting is sunscreen. You will be standing in the open sun holding a pole and you WILL get burned, so be prepared!
All in all, we had a great time on our trip, despite the 3 of us that got seasick and we'd happily do it again. If you've never gone deep sea fishing, you should definitely give it a shot, there's nothing like it and the Princess is a great boat to start on.
