Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Jeanne USA Jun 11 2018 12:22pm

    A nice boat-ride but, we did NOT book for a boat-ride. Yes, we caught several fish - unfortunately, the mate decided we were with another party and gave them our fish! When I asked how he was keeping track of our fish-he stated he had it covered.Turns out he had indeed given mine to some folks from N. AL which he assumed we were with!! We didn't look, nor sound anything like them!!The worst part was the lying that ensued by both the mate & the boats agent onshore. The mate said I told him we were with the other folks - a lie. Then he said he had given my husband a # for our fish - another lie! The agent onshore, after discussing the situation with the mate, did return the $25.00 tip we had given. She stated we could NOT get a refund because we had already taken the trip (???). She FINALLY agreed to refund half of what we paid for the FISHING trip when I refused to accept her responses and her offer that we could come back the following day and go out again OR we could wait around another 4 hrs until the boat going out returned and perhaps they would have some extra fish, depending on how the fishing went for them....WOW - what terrible PR!!

    Hard working mates

    Tons of fish that were caught in a short 10hr tour. Keep in mind that fishing is a gamble and your trip may be better or worse. The crew was hard working and one of the one guy was very diligent to help us. A few other of the crew members expected you to get it on the first time and not so much patient. Nonetheless, great time.

    Brandi, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! Just to clarify some points about travel time for future customers: Party boats have federal permits which means they have to travel 9 miles out to sea in order to fish. This does take between 1.5-2 hrs for traveling to reach the fishing grounds. Each captain has different "hot spots" they like to fish so if one spot isn't biting, the captain will move the boat. The 4 hr trip isn't any closer to land than the 6 hr trip is. The 6hr trip just gives you much more fishing time because the captain can travel to more spots. Thank you so much for your kind words and we hope your vacation was amazing! TripShock! Director of Sales

    Deep Sea Fishing

    The crew were very nice and helpful. It was very very hot out and a lot of people were over heating. Suggestion: Take lots of water and take lots of breaks if you are in the sun. Towels too so that you can put a wet cold towel on your neck to stay cool. They didn't charge to clean your fish like most boats do, so please make sure to tip your crew!!!

    Rude crew

    I would not use this charter if this is your first time deep sea fishing. They do not have the patience to work with first timers. My daughter got her line crossed with someone at the end of the boat. As she was trying to tighten her line the crew member gets a hook in his finger and starts cursing at her. Which led to an argument between me and him. As we are arguing no one on the crew ever intervened as an employee is yelling at a customer nor did they say anything about him cursing at a 16 year old girl. The one positive thing I will say is that we caught fish.
