Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Ronald USA Jul 2 2018 07:53am

    Born and raised in NW FL and I've been going deep sea fishing on our own boat and charters since I was about 7 years old. I'm 39 now. (Just for some background - NOT A TOURIST) This was hands down the worst charter trip I've ever been on. The crew was great. Never needed for anything and they were quick to get fish off the hook for people. The captain was atrocious. I was also in the military so I'm used to getting yelled at.....just not by someone who I'm paying to put me on some fish. Against my better judgement, I scheduled a trip for my dad, father in law, brother in law, 2 nephews, and myself on a party boat. (ALL have been doing this kind of fishing for years - NOT TOURISTS). We had 37 people on the boat that day and 4 got sick and never fished. Out of those 33 people fishing, there were 7 legal RED SNAPPER caught....SEVEN!!! They did not put us on numbers worth a damn. Just about nothing but Mingos caught. 3 Bonita and a few trigger fish (Trigger fish are out of season right now). The captain was the biggest prick I've ever met in my life. EVER!!!!! The other boats in the Olin Marer fleet looked like they fared better than us. In North West Florida when you drop a line in the water on average wrecks, you should still be tearing up the RED SNAPPER. 7 keepers were caught. Maybe 7 or 8 not legal size reds were caught but other than that it was pitiful. We did a 6 hour trip. Didn't expect to fish all day. It doesn't matter though. You pay for a 6 hour trip this time of year, you should come back with at least half of the boat with their limit on RED SNAPPER. If you are wanting to go out and catch RED SNAPPER, DO NOT take the "GULF BREEZE" boat from the Olin Marer fleet. I understand fishing....its not called catching, its called fishing for a reason. There were too many people on the boat catching Mingos and it was too perfect a day for fishing to not be catching hardly any RED SNAPPER at all. Maybe other boats in the fleet are better, I don't know. I don't usually give reviews on things but this still has me hot 3 days later. Maybe if the captain hadn't been such a prick, I'd just say it was an off day but when he is allowed to stand up there and yell at people who are paying good money to fish, I say take your money elsewhere. I've been on NUMEROUS charters and we own a 25 foot boat. I know how to fish in the gulf. I don't even care about the captain yelling if he was yelling at me. He wasn't though. I felt bad for the tourists that came down here on vacation and paid for a trip this bad. The weather was pristine! Seas weren't bad at all. (Maybe 2 feet but less than 3). I'm giving this a "2" only because the crew was great!

    Best US Beach Excursion Ever!

    From checking in to board, to the crew welcome, the crew helpfulness, knowledge and just plain "let's have a great trip" attentiveness, my family of 6 adults and 2 children had the best time ever! We have done this in the Carribean and feel Paradise Adventures Catamaran did a truly great job! 8 thumbs up!

    Fish were biting

    Another charter cancelled due to waves. This boat was the right size to handle the waves. Only 4 hour Cruze, but after 1 hour ride, we were on the fish the whole time. Saved a lot of money to. Had a reel good time with my family.
