In April 2012, myself and friends chartered Coastal Expeditions for the amount of $400 for a 4 hour fishing expedition based upon the owner, Vernon Reynolds telling us that we would be taken to some great spots to fish and also do some sightseeing while on the water. Based upon his sales pitch, we agreed to go do what we interpreted as offshore fishing and sightseeing at the same time. What really occurred was that his employee Eric took us out fishing in depths no more than 8-10 feet. We caught 4 very small sharks and 3 writing’s in a 4 hour time span (which included the trip time- not actual fishing time, which was about 3 hours), all of which were all thrown back. Offshore fishing is defined as going into areas deeper than what an NBA player can stand in without his head being under water. The only memorable part of the trip was seeing 2 dolphins. However, I am from the west coast and I have been on many chartered fishing expeditions, caught many various types of fish and sharks and observed many dolphins and I have to say beyond a reasonable doubt, this is by far, the biggest rip off I have seen in regards fishing charters. $400 for 3 people to be taken into depths of 8 feet? I could have rented poles, bought tackle, bought a license and stood at the docks and done the same thing for a lot less money. Next time I am town, I will go with a different charter.
