Miserable and very little time fishing

Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Paula Crumpton USA Jun 8 2019 12:13pm

    This was one of the most miserable things I’ve ever got up early for and paid for. We were soaked from head to toe especially coming back! I’ll start by saying the crew was great and the captain couldn’t help the cloudy rainy weather but should have had enough room for all the passengers to get out of the rain and sea spray. The cabin was small and for the ones who could fit in there, most were standing. Now the part that really earned a 1 said 1-2 hours traveling depending on length of trip. We booked 6 hours but rode hour and a half getting there and another hour and half getting back. Then when he did let us drop our hooks, we stayed only a few minutes even though we were catching fish. Pulled up, rode a long time and kept repeating this. We fished maybe a total of 45 minutes to an hour. Had no idea they weren’t taking us to a spot and anchoring so we could just fish! Do not waste your time and money on the Gulf Breeze with Olin Marler Charters!

    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.'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 you enjoyed your overall visit to Destin. Respectfully, TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Deep sea fishing

    We couldn’t keep anything we caught and moved way more than fished.

    Was rescheduled from a 8 hr trip to a 6 hr trip due to not enough people signing up. Rough seas were unavoidable, however we spent almost 4 of the 6 hrs getting out and back, even though we never lost sight of the beach. Very few fish caught by anyone on the boat, and most of mine (red snapper) were out of season. Crew was very helpful and attentive while fishing; however, many of the crew and other guests were smoking on the boat which was very annoying to us non-smokers. Not likely to utilize this company again.

    Fishing Excursion

    My family 2019 fishing trip was great! We did have a good time. However, my family is a group of die-hard fishermen...they were disappointed with the way the captain selected a single fishing location (this is in comparison to cost and other excursions down south around Jupiter, Fl). Upon returning, the crew cleaned the fish, but the crew took/misplaced my nephew was heartbreaking for Nephew, he really wanted to show off. Lastly, the crew was extremely disrespectful when it came to the gratuity. They basically demanded a 30% tip. In my opinion, this was the absolute deal breaker, either the costs needs to go up so the ship captain can pay the crew or the crew needs to accept what was given and just be grateful. My niece had $2.00 cash and she gave all she had to give, one of... read more

    Not as we expected

    I had much better fishing trips before. Not just because we caught more fish but because this time we fished only 60 minutes out of 6 hours. Not very satisfied
