We had a really great time on this boat! The captain and deckhands were all fantastic and knew their stuff about finding and catching the fish. We had caught plenty to bring home and cook for a few days!
Although our boat was full, unfortunately, we had a good handful of newbies who ended up getting quite sick on the way out. After the fishing excursion, on our way back in, the deckhands started to wash down the boat, forcing everyone to move from one side to the other, then inside the boat, until they were done. Once finished, everything was soaked and there was no where to sit any more, except for inside, which held all of the poor sick people and not enough room for everyone. I had asked one of the deckhands why they couldn't wait to clean the boat until everyone had gotten off at the dock, and he said that they rinse it down with salt water first, and then at the dock, clean it with fresh water. But again I asked why not wait till at the dock, when everyone could exit the boat, and he responded by saying it would take longer and they'd be there an extra hour at the dock cleaning... this way, they already knocked off an hour of cleaning.
I was kind of surprised at this, and the overall experience on the boat was really great, but to end the trip on the way back, moving all around the boat, and then not having anywhere to sit until getting back to the dock was a little disappointing, and strange. I've been on other fishing boats off the shore before, and this was the first I'd ever been on that they started washing down the boat WHILE we were still on it, and while they were still trying to filet the fish off the back.
