Jeff and Damon were awesome deck hands! They were always on the spot to help and give advise. The captain moved till he got us on fish. He got me to my 10 lb. Mangrove Snapper. The cook was a grouchy old man and didn't care to be bothered, which was the only negative of the trip.
An awesome birthday present, spent with my girls!

Our family of 9 plus 2 friends made our group large . We had almost a whole side to ourselves . Crew was amazing and helpful like the majority of reviews I read . They ran to our assistance everytime we had a bite on the line .they went out of their way to help my 12yesr old who was sea sick .crew member Matt went above and beyond to help him catch a fish to get his mind off of the sickness.Charles ( the captain ) brought him water and paper towels to assist him after he got sick. We honestly felt like there was nothing they could hAve done to make it any better !!! We caught 4 nice size shark and a few other fish that had to be thrown back but the crew got our catch all ready to walk down to the resteraunt to get it cooked up with all of the fixings ! Jared was the youngest crew hand and we must have worked that poor kid to exhaustion ! We have been on many deep sea fishing excursions and this one was by far the best we have ever been on !!
The boat was well maintained and the restrooms were accomadating. We never had to wait to use it . The captain was very hands on and friendly. We are planning our next trip out ! We are telling all of our Orlando friends to book a trip out

My husband and I were with friends from up north. They are avid fly-fishing people. We went for fun and had fun. Our boat was totally packed, but the weather was perfect. The crew were really working hard - had a good sense of humor, and knew what they were doing. As I was reviewing other people's comments- I would suggest that you see what the seas (and weather) will be like before you decide to go out in the boat. Seems that most of the complaints were due to bad weather. The boat is clean, the food is fine- freshly made, but what one would expect on a party boat. I really liked the bacon and egg sandwich. A lot of fish were caught, some were great keepers and many had to be let free because they were out of season. We took home (the four of us) one nice mangrove snapper. Men next to us caught some really nice keepers, it was obvious they had better skill at hooking them. On our way out we watched dolphins playing near the boat and a large turtle. On the way back we enjoyed cold beer. Really a pleasant way to spend a day with friends.

The half day fishing trip with the Orlando Princess is a wonderful experience for all ages. It's exciting, but not too overwhelming for first timers. The crew were an absolute treat! They were always helpful, patient, and had easy going attitudes that put you at ease. They cracked jokes and had fun with you, while simultaneously staying on the ball with everyone who needed a helping hand. The trip also includes a lunch, as well as unlimited drinks. At the end, if you'd like to have you're fish filleted, they'll do that for free. These guys are only paid by tips, so be generous! Trust me, with their wonderful work and capabilities, you'll want to give them a little something something! I highly suggest going if you're looking for some sun and adventure!
