Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Andrew Weaver USA Jun 28 2018 11:17am

    Captain was very negative, bordering on threatening, in his instructions. Made degrading remarks to anyone whose tipping he didn't think was sufficient. Boat was crowded with lots of smokers you couldn't get away from. Fishing was OK. Took two hours to reach fishing spot and two to get back which greatly reduced fishing time. Crew was very helpful and nice.

    Too many people on the boat. Tangled a lot after carefully following the directions of the crew. Was not thrilled with my total catch. I like the snapper rules of the boat, ie, boat limit and not per person limit unless all fishing persons catch their two snappers.

    Thanks for booking with us and for sharing your experience! Red snapper season definitely is a favorite for anglers, so we do see the party boats at full capacity. I assure you, however, that the number of people on board is actually below the boat's limit. While the crew definitely works hard to make sure lines are untangled, sometimes the conditions just make them work a bit harder to ensure everyone has a good time. Next time you might want to consider a private charter OR the same company offers a semi-private trip which limits the number of people to 15 so there is a lot more elbow room. I hope that you enjoyed your visit and that we see you next time! TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Ok experience

    This is the second time we go with this company. We have a great time the first time we go eventhough we have to go through stormy sea. This time the sea is calm but we encounter dolphins that took our fish at lease twice. So the fishing is not so great but do catch a few small one. But two things ruin our fishing trip, first we were assign fishing spot where it did not happen the first time and most of all, we are missing fishes. I believe our fish went to someone else. My wife recalled the last few we caught, they took it without asking our number. So it end up going to someone else. The biggest thing is I hope they can improve is to make sure the fish go to the right party, especially when fishing is slow. That is why I only give a 3 star.

    Had a blast

    The crew was helpful but a little inappropriate and rude at the end to the cook that was preparing our fish.

    keep eye on your fish

    boarding went fine, trip out was fine, fishing was great. it was after we got back to the dock that things went downhill fast. we had a party of 14 go and ended up with 4 stringers of fish. one of the stringers had the fish for my grandson who is shipping off in 2 months and a friend. that stringer of fish was cut up and given to other people. so to me basically I paid for them to fish and they received nothing, no fish and no apology.
