Sorry to say but this boat should be in dry dock for a complete overhaul. Nothing worked, no air conditioning, no electricity, none of the instruments worked. It was so bad we turned our 6 hour trip into a 4 hour trip. Only good thing was the crew. We did catch some Mahi Mahi. 4 keepers 4 shorts. Look at description of amenities for this boat. Does not have them. Look there Capt. Rick, Air conditioning right there in black and white.

You did catch 8 mahi-mahis so you had a good fishing day.  And we do not advertise air conditioning on that boat.
Air conditioning is on the bigger more expensive boat,
What intruments were you looking for?  Did the captain seem to be getting lost or not know how deep the water was?

We had an excellent morning with of fishing.  2 tuna and 5 Mahi Mahi.  I have included the video of catching the largest Mahi Mahi.  I was really impressed with the way the Captain and Crew worked continuously to catch the fish.  I highly recommend this boat!

Superb, reliable service from the time we made a deposit until we departed the dock with our filleted catch in hand.  The team from Captain Rick’s has my endorsement for safety and fun.
  We originally booked the Finatik for a half day trip.  Two days prior to our date the boat was down for service so they upgraded us to the 48’ Big Fish at no cost.  Great boat, great crew and it comfortably handled 7 of us.  It was my wife and I with her parents (in their 70’s) and our 3 adult kids (ages 17 - 23). 
  Just as they advertise, we were fishing within 10 minutes from leaving the dock.  The big fish were not biting that day but we came home with more than enough.  We caught one Mahi-Mahi and eight Bonita.
  It was a beautiful day on the water.  The crew was friendly, helpful and professional.  I was very satisfied with the whole experience.  I would definitely fish with this team again.
