Friendly and knowledgeable crew. Captain Freddie was awesome and Brad did a great job. Deep sea fishing made easy. You will love this crew and boat. Caught lots of fish. And we are still eating it. Highly recommended.

Hidden charges were charged without being told up front. Gave a cash tip but was told by a lady who I presume was the office manager that a $30 tip was to small and charged my debit card $800 dollars, I’m on vacation so I thought the $800 dollars was what I owed for my trip, but when I checked my reservation confirmation the amount charged was different than the $765 dollars listed on my confirmation. Didn’t have a problem with being charged for services rendered but don’t charge me for a tip after I’ve already given you one. Will never book with them again….

Clean boat and our equipment was ready. Freddy put us on the fish and Dave had us reeling them in immediately. Sometimes 3 fish were on at once. A great experience for my father and 3 boys we all caught fish. I highly recommend Southwinds Charters we will be returning customers.
