Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Jerry Todd Alabama, USA Jun 8 2019 01:20am

    Too many people on the boat. Tangled a lot after carefully following the directions of the crew. Was not thrilled with my total catch. I like the snapper rules of the boat, ie, boat limit and not per person limit unless all fishing persons catch their two snappers.

    Thanks for booking with us and for sharing your experience! Red snapper season definitely is a favorite for anglers, so we do see the party boats at full capacity. I assure you, however, that the number of people on board is actually below the boat's limit. While the crew definitely works hard to make sure lines are untangled, sometimes the conditions just make them work a bit harder to ensure everyone has a good time. Next time you might want to consider a private charter OR the same company offers a semi-private trip which limits the number of people to 15 so there is a lot more elbow room. I hope that you enjoyed your visit and that we see you next time! TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Fun for Kids, Great Afternoon of Fishing

    Most important, everyone on the boat was excellent. Very informative and helpful. When you check in you must sign a waiver. Upon loading on the boat, the crew introduces themselves and off you go. It's a bit of a ride before you begin fishing. Everything is provided. There were approximately 16 people on my boat and plenty of room for everyone. I took my 12 year old grandson and we had a great time. You will see all kinds of fish (dolphins, flying fish etc) and someone even caught a shark on our trip (about 4' long). All fishing is bottom fishing and mostly white snapper and the like. We caught 15-20 fish and they bite quickly. The fish range 8"-18" mainly. Then head back to shore, where they will quickly prepare / filet your fish for you (for a small tip). Great for an... read more
