What a great time! The captain and clerk were very friendly. We really enjoyed our ride thru the Fisherman's Wharf boat.

There are other choices. Woody's Sport Center was a way better experience. Another choice I'd Dolphin Dock. You can't trust these guys to keep your trip booked or book your trip correctly. They screwed up both times.

We had a great time. the deckhands were great. They hung out with our smaller kids and helped the older ones reel in some big fish. The captain came down and helped the deckhands and even went fishing with us.
