“Great Time But Fish Weren't Biting”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

3 family members went on the 4 hour Party Boat fishing trip during the first week of July. We had a great time, the crew took good care of us. Unfortunately, the fish were not biting like we wanted. We still caught enough to have a fish taco dinner for 10 back at the condo that night.
Would recommend them again....actually I already have.

“Outstanding service”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went for the 6:00-10:00 group fishing excursion. The three of us were the only ones to show up so we had the boat to ourselves. My friend and I had only been on this type of fishing trip maybe once before, so we were not experienced fishing guys. His 15 year old son had never been before. Well let me tell you. It was July 6th and the water was pretty rough getting out to our first stop (took about 30 minutes). Once there, it seemed like every time we put our line in the water we either caught a fish or lost our bait (due to inexperience). The deck hands, Derek and Juan were extremely patient with us. They were very attentive but in no way intrusive. We went to a couple of other spots and continued to catch fish like it was a stocked pond. My friend and his son had an amazing time. When we got back, Derek and Juan cleaned and bagged our fish. I have never put anything on Trip Advisor before, but felt the need to highly recommend this.

“Nice Cruise. Smiles all around!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

They have glass bottom boats, to a certain existent. The cruise was nice and the captain went out of his way to make sure we saw dolphins. It started with a tour of the port and then capped with the dolphin sightings. While we did not see much in the way of dolphin, the cruise was still worth the trip to just go up and down the coast to see the sights. Charter a private boat and expect to pay over $500.00 dollars to see the same things. So take the family or your date and don’t look back or second guess your decision.

“Great family fun!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Great family trip aboard the Hannah Marie. Kid friendly, interesting and fun. Kids got to captain the boat and the crew was very helpful with taking pictures and giving area information. The two hour tour was informative and we had a good time.
