Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

    This was our first time on a fishing charter boat. It was a little crowded, so you barely had room to do much without being right on top of someone but it all worked out. The crew was friendly and helpful.

    Should have never stayed out fishing

    Day started out rough and got worse. Capt should have never tried to keep us out. Couldn’t keep the boat still to fish over the reefs. Twice was the bot almost on its side. A guy that was in my group had a rod and reel fall on his head while in the cabin and took a decent size gash. To be clear we were on Tropical Wind and NOT Gulf Breeze

    Miserable and very little time fishing

    Thank you for booking with us and for taking the time to share your feedback. It definitely sounds like weather had a lot to do with your overall experience, so I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy. Olin Marler is actually our most popular party boat offered on our site and take pride in their crew and equipment. They are also the most experienced party boat offered from the Destin harbor, so I assure you that the captain was doing his best to position the boat where the fish were biting. Although....it's still fishing, so there is never a guarantee of a great catch. We have shared your feedback with them and will re-visit how we have the travel time there/back listed on our site as we don't want anyone to feel that they have been mislead. Again, thank you for booking with us an hope...

    Awful

    The Captain and crew were rude and treated people as if they were an inconvenience VS making it a fun adventure. I would spend the extra money and take a smaller charter where the crew cares about their guests.

    Don’t book this trip

    We went out in 5-7ft waves, crew wasn’t supportive and they were understaffed. The deckhands smelled like beer. They waiting 30 minutes until a fish we caught died before throwing it back in the water. The fishing lines also kept snapping and we kept running out of bait. I wouldn’t choose to book with them again.

    Got sick, not the boats fault!

    But it was not the fishing company's fault! I got extremely sea sick and puked for 4 hours or was asleep. The boat and people were great, just not the trip for me!

    Poor decision to take boat out in rough water

    Went out on a 6 hr fishing trip on Sat. There were strong south winds which meant very rough seas. Spent the first 2 hours fighting the super rough waves getting out to the reef. By the time the first line dropped I'd say at least 8 of the 30 ppl on board had become sick. The ocean did not calm down and fish bites were very limited. The dolphins were also out in full force stealing the fish off the lines. All said and done there were only 6-8 keeper fish on the boat and at least half if not more of the paying customers had become ill and didn't even get lines out in the ocean. I feel going out in such rough seas was a bad decision by the captain. The crew was very nice but overall trip was a huge waste of money!

    Olin Marler Pensacola party fishing 4 hour- don’t waste your money

    Captain did not go far enough out. stopped only 2 times to Fish. Terrible old greasy bait. All other 4 hour boats were loaded w red snapper. We caught only small rock fish and ruby lips. NO ONE ON OUR BOAT OF 30+ caught any fish worth bragging about. Worst trip ever after doing many of these.

    Not pleased

    My grandson is 7 years old and couldn’t hold the rod. They shouldn’t have let him get on board. I’d like a refund for his purchase. They saw how small he was when we went to sign in.
