While Capt Jim, Mike and the crew were very nice guys and enjoyed their company, I just feel the charter was over sold. First the day before our charter was to take place, we got a call from Mike that said the conditions were too bad and we would have to reschedule for the following day. I found out on our trip that they actually went out with a seperate charter on the day we were scheduled and just pushed us off. We payed a premium to be on a LUXURY Yacht. The boat was in good charter condition, but three of the bedrooms were not usable as they were crew quarters and the one bedroom that was had equipment in it so my family could not use. None of the the refrigerators were operational on the boat and so we have to store our food in the igloo ice chest. Again not a big deal if you knew that was what you were getting and I would have not paid that much for the charter. Now to the fishing, while I had requested we go Mahi trolling and when booking the trip they said the Mahi fishing was excellent, when we got on the boat they went to their customary anchor spot that they take all their charters to on the reef to fish for yellow tail. When I inquired about mahi trolling, they said it was not that good and not worth going. It just felt like a $80 to $90 a head charter that I paid almost $1,600 for 4 people. I would have expected a much nicer boat and while we got a lot of yellow tail, I was not expecting a go out 10 miles and anchor trip for that price.
