    Great last minute fishing trip with my father-in-law. Staff was great and very helpful. Things started out rough with the weather but became a beautiful day later. Only issue I had was that I wish they offered food and/or beverages included.

    My first time out on a fishing charter. Nice boat but the crew was not to worried about being helpful. The man next to me asked for help putting his bait on and was told it didn’t matter how he did it. Just stick it on there. Clearly it does matter because if it’s not put on very well then the fish will just get your bait off without getting hooked. ... read more

    The trip itself was enjoyable. Though the bite was minimal and the fish were ALL small, we had a good time catching them. My rating is of no reflection to that aspect. Sometimes the fish just don’t cooperate. Our issue was with the attitude of the crew. “Big Alex” made a few “jokes” during the briefing but you could tell he was not happy to be there. The captain was pissy the whole time and the crew seemed bothered by our being there. There was no effort on their part to “earn” their tips. “Small Alex”removed our hooks as required but none of them seemed to enjoy being there. Big Alex scolded my son because his fish took of sideways and tangled two other lines and he had to fix it, pissed off the whole time. Then on the way back, “not alex” snarked at my son because... read more

    The trip was fun. The deck hands don’t really help; only help get the fish off the hook. Our boat had about 30 people and everyone caught a bunch of fish. The only thing about it was all the fish were really tiny compared to the other fish from other boats at the harbor. This trip was shorter and less expensive than others.

    Overall good

    Tough weather day - I know that can’t be controlled but definitely affects the experience.

    Not many fish...

    Although the seas were rough and many passengers got sick, we made good time and were able to fish about 4 hours of an 8 hour trip. Unfortunately the captain brought us to many dead fishing spots - 3 or 4 times we dropped our line and NOBODY of 30+ caught anything at these spots. Although it is red snapper season, only ONE snapper of considerable size was caught I don't feel the captain did a good enough job ensuring we did good on our investment. It's hard to understand why we fished spots where few to no fish were. Only the last 2 spots yielded a decent catch but most of them were small vermillion and white snapper. The crew did a great job keeping us untangled and fishing as best we could.

    Captain was a grump. A man was standing in front of restroom and he yelled excuse me and then called the guy an idiot as he walked away. My father, who is 72, slipped while exiting the boat and fell. Just not safe. No regard for customers.
