Okay, I read reviews before I left and read one that stated that they cater to locals. Thought "Oh, they had a bad day of fishing" happens to us all. Should have listened. In my opinion: it is a waste of your money to book...More

Great boat and crew! A must do if you are visiting or are a local. Priced right and not so long that the inexperienced fisherman gets board. I have been many times and always have a blast!

Great experience. Very helpful crew. Caught a lot of fish and crew very helpful with children. Captain moved a few times a few blocks to see if fishing better in another area and depth but caught fish in all locations and depths. Would use again.

Great price to get four hours out on the water with a hook and some bait. If you're expecting glitz and glamor, this isn't the excursion for you. The guys working on the boat were very helpful, very laid back, and were there anytime we...More
