Terrible Captain

Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • Jim Graham USA May 25 2018 11:55am

    We were talking to one of the crew about what we were going to catch the captain Overheard and came out to tell us “we aren’t going to catch shit on this touristy 4 hour tour, it’s for kids and asked what we were doing on it”. We laughed it off and said it was the only one we could fit in that day. He then basically told us not to expect to catch fish if we were going to be cheap. He then cut off a boat and the crew said it was the captains fault and then ridiculed the guys boat over the intercom. Which then caused a cussing match between the two and had to dodge another boat while he was distracted cussing at the original boat. There were a few really nice crew members who were very helpful. But overall the captain ruined the trip for everyone that had interaction with him.

    Thanks for coming out with us, but sorry to hear you didn't have a good time. The 4 hour afternoon trips do attract families with children as it's a shorter period of time out on the water. This afternoon option is also a good fit for first-timers or simply those who want to sleep in during vacation. Next time, try out our morning charter! We have longer 6-8 hour trips which offer more time out and typically do better. The captain/crew work well together but it sounds like their communication came across as harsh and blunt. We do apologize if this created an unpleasant experience, so we've talked with both the captain and crew as our jobs are to make these trips memorable for all the right reasons. Hope we see you again next time! Olin Marler Management

    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 string...it 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
