Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Sherri Willis USA Apr 3 2019 07:23pm

    They were all nice enough and the captain moved around to find fish. Of note, the captain and all deck hands smoke and curse. We had a child with asthma so that would have been good to know before we booked. I did explain to one deck hand who graciously put his cigarette out, but picked it up again a few minutes later. They smoked inside the cabin as well. The explanation of the trip said 25 people and we had 34 on our boat. It was very crowded when fishing. So much so one of us didn’t get to fish because it was too crowded. Every 2 feet there was a fishing pole, which meant a lot of tangled lines. You bait your own hooks but the deck hands take the fish off. They will clean them for you for a fee. The trip served its purpose and we all caught at least one fish. You go out for an hour, fish for 2 hours, come back for an hour if you take the 4 hour trip.

    Sherri, Thank you for taking the time to leave. We are sorry you felt your trip was less than satisfactory but I would like to address a few things from your review. This boat like most other boats, is not a nonsmoking vessel. This is a 35 passenger party boat which is named as such because a large party of people are allowed to come aboard and fish at a less expensive rate than a private charter would run. The listing and your voucher both state the maximum capacity. Anyone with special needs like asthma, shellfish allergies, etc are encouraged to book private trips because requests can be easily approved on those vessels since it's a private charter. The deckhands do work for tips but fishing cleaning is always free with Olin Marler. They never charge a fee for that. Party boats in Destin all have federal permits which means they do have to travel for about 90 minutes to get to federal fishing waters before customers are allowed to fish. We do hope that you'll come back again and possibly try a less busy time of year to fish! Spring break is triggerfish season and the fishing for them is very popular! If you do need help booking your fishing next fishing trip, please give our agents a call at 1800-450-7139. Thank you again for your feedback. TripShock! Director of Sales

    Fishing trip.

    Great crew and experience but as a tourist and first experience deep sea fishing I was excited when I would catch a fish and wanted a keepsake (picture). I caught a big fish and before I could even tell my boyfriend to get the phone which was in his pocket the crew member took the fish off the hook and let it go. Any time I would mention wanting a picture before the fish was out of the water the crew member said you better hurry. Other than that, great trip!
