We had a great 1/2 day fishing trip with Captain Drew and Mate Cody. They were helpful and friendly. The boat was great. It fit 24 comfortably. The captain took us to several places looking for fish that were biting. We caught multiple ones although none big enough to keep. The fee included pole and bait. Definitely a great value.

First time on a jet ski, so I was a little nervous about what to expect. Once out on the water, any nerves quickly disappeared. There was only myself and one other person in this time frame, so the riding area was pretty much empty and clear of people. I went slow at first, but as time went on and I was a little more comfortable, I confidently sped up. Had a great time and I will definitely do this again!

The captain only made announcements when the boat was underway and we couldn't understand him. Other than that it was an okay "screw the tourists" event.

Hey Basil, sorry you did not enjoy your fishing experience. Unfortunately we can't control if the fish are biting and the boat can hold 32 people and we only take 25 to make it more accommodating for our customers. If you want even more space you can book a private charter. Your tourist comment is very inaccurate. We are a small family owned and operated business who appreciate and want our customers to have the best time.

First impressions matter and it was pretty clear people did not have enthusiasm for their work, from office staff to crew. We booked private charter for family specifically to get help as none were experienced at fishing . We were told to bait our own hooks and fast instructions on how to operate fishing rods. Capitan had no interactions , basically yelled at us if we didn’t reel our lines in fast enough when he wanted to move . We could barely hear him and any instructions he gave. We all caught a fish or two and the first mate tried to help but overall would not recommend unless you knew what you were doing.

Sorry you did not enjoy your fishing trip. We have varying level of experience on our boat and if you ask Cody is always happy to help. Also, with covid some people do not want as much interaction. As you can see from our other reviews our crew is great!

Know what you are getting and what you are not and it is a good option for fishing. This is not a private charter boat where they will give you one on one attention. They have a lot of bodies on the boat and the one first mate has to scramble to help everyone who catches. We were out for 2.5 hours and caught two fish. Would have been nice to get more and learn the technique of flounder fishing better, but you pay for what you get. If you want to spend 10 times as much and get all that, charter your own boat for a half day. I would recommend them for party boat fishing.
