“Great Experience for kids and adults alike !”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

One of the best fishing charter trips we have booked. Great value for families at 40 per adult and 20 for kids. Great fishing depends on the day, and conditions. After calling some private charters, and waiting out weather conditions, rolled the dice here, and will now make it a must stop everytime in Keys ! Mates were excellent in keeping everyone with lines in water, and showing kids special attention. Great choice for deep sea fishing !

“Family Vacation”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

wife and i took our 3 children on the morning trip and had a great time! Kids caught a ton of fish and he crew were extremly helpful and cooperative. the crew even had some of their lines out with bigger bait for bigger fish and caught a nurse shark. it took 20 minutes to reel in and they let each kid on the boat have a turn. once all the pictures were taken it was released. A true treat for any kid! They filleted our fish and sent us to a local restaurant where they cooked it up for us. Overall a great day fishing for the price!

“Nice Boat...Great Mates...Small Fish”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were a party of 4 looking to go fishing in the Keys for under the standard $600 price tag. Sailors Choice was located at the marina near our hotel and offered the half day trip for $40pp. I guess you get what you pay for because although the boat was pristine clean, and the crew were fun and attentive, the few fish that were caught by any of the 10 people aboard were small and for the most part thrown back.

It was so nice to get out on the water, although it was rather cool and windy. We were allowed to bring our ice chest of adult beverages and smoking was allowed. We went to 2 different locations to fish spending about an hour or so at each. The trip out and back took 45 minutes each way eating up our 4 hours. The head was clean and we enjoyed the trip making it worth the $40 each that we paid just to get on a boat and out on the water.

Would recommend the trip for the on water experience and novice fishing.

“fine for the price”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

we had hoped to do a split charter, but when it didnt come together rather than springing for a $600 half day we went with this $40 per person half day option. It was nice to be out on the water, and the deck mates are kind and helpful. its good for families but a bit of a disappointment next to what we were hoping for. But we both caught a few fish, and took them home cleaned and filleted

“Decent Fishing Trip, Clean Boat, Great Mates!!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My 2 boys (7 and 10) and I went fishing on the Sailor's Choice. Josh was fantastic and made sure that both of my boys caught a fish, he was great. The setup of a party fishing boat makes it difficult to catch more than just 1 or 2 fish (if even) unless you are in the back of the boat. That said, the Sailor's Choice boat is clean and easy to find. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I took my family down for my son's 10th birthday (all he wanted was to go ocean fishing). He was disappointed with the fishing and frustrated because of the amount of people fishing on the boat (limited fishing space, lines getting tangled) and the fact that the regulars at the back caught most of the fish. It was a fun to take the boat ride out and back, but the fishing was honestly just OK. My son did a backcountry charter trip for his big birthday gift and, although a bit more expensive, much better if you (or your kids) actually want to catch fish.
