This is a super fun way to spend a day in sunny Florida! We spent the whole day on the water with the family and have so many great memories from this experience. We will be back!

Thank you!!

“Great Value”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

What a fantastic deal. Best value anywhere. Fish, sight-see, eat, sunbathe. BYO or stop along the way. Six friends dawn to dusk. It doesn't get any better than this. We had a blast.

“An awesome day for everyone!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

I booked a trip with Mike after seeing other TA reviews. Take the advice from all of the reviews and book a trip on Yacht of Fun! My parents and I all enjoyed our day out on the Intercoastal Waterway. My dad and I fished and my mom pretended to fish! I don't think I had ever been fishing before. Captain Mike showed me what to do,kept my hook filled with bait, and took the fish off the line. No yucky stuff equals a happy me! My dad and I had a blast fishing and catching lots of cool fish! My mom enjoyed watching the birds and reading while we fished. We saw dolphins and manatee. We had a full day of fishing and cruising. We met Mike at 9:00 and returned just before the sun went down. I know we will do this again. If you are considering booking a trip, go on and do it. You will not be disappointed. Mike will make sure you will have a day that won't soon be forgotten!

Thank you very much for reviewing Yacht Of Fun and letting everyone know you had a great time out on the boat with your parents and me! I think you and your Dad love fishing as much as I do! I had a lot of fun seeing you guys catch so many different kinds of fish all day long, and I am definitely looking forward to your next family fishing tournament aboard Yacht Of Fun! Mike

“The Best Day Ever! On The ICW St. Augustine Fl.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

No clocks on this boat, only FUN. I just experenced eleven hours on a boat with my wife and two friends, amazing!! Capt. Mike is awsome and he loves making people happy. Our trip started at the Vilano Bridge with a siteseeing trip South toward the Fort and the Bridge of Lions. Wow, what a view from the water. You have not seen St. Augustine until you see the view from Capt. Mike's Boat. Our first stop was just short of the 312 bridge to fish. The four of us had rods, tackle, and bait provided by Capt. Mike. The fish were biting for the next two hours where we caught and released morethan 40 fish. The largest fish was a 25.5 inch Red, and yes we released it for the next guests on Capt. Mike's boat. After fishing we crusied through Oyster Creek and docked at Hurricane Patty's for lunch. Lunch was great and the price was perfect. From there, we headed South to Matanza Inlet where swimming was a must. The water was cool and clear and we had our own private sand bar. After Matanza, we headed back north about two miles and stopped to fish. Again, Capt. Mike knows where the fish are because for the next three hours we caught and released a bunch of fish. Just so you know, this boat has a live well so you can take your fish home. After fishing we headed back North toward our starting point and enjoyed more siteseeing. This trip is amazing, great value, peaceful, and adventurous so my firends and I would recommend this trip for all ages and let Capt Mike show you a part of St. Augustine that will change your life. In closing, a few points for this trip. Bring a camera, snacks, drinks, and a rain jacket and everthing else the Capt. will provide, including a great time. The best thing about this trip, is you never feel rushed and Capt. Mike makes you feel like you've known him your entire life. (FYI! we live in St. Augustine and this trip made it the Best Day Ever.)

Thank you! Reviews like yours make me love what I do! What could be better then spending the day fishing and enjoying fun people like you! It WAS a great fishing day too! Next time I think we should have ESPN along to film your "two hour and forty five minute" fight with the next big one! Looking forward to that hook up! Capt. Mike
