We spent more time driving than fishing. We specifically asked to go fishing and shelling when we booked the trip. Then when we arrived we were told the boat could not stop for shelling. We were all disappointed and had to book another boat trip for the shelling. The woman who called us to confirm the trip gave us information on shelling at other beaches, but we felt we were mislead.

Dear Mrs Pulliam
I’m so sorry you were disappointed with your Fishing Charter. When the booking was requested I noted that it was for a fishing Charter and we aren’t equipped for shelling per your inquiry “if it was possible”. There are Coast Guard regulations regarding boarding and unboarding that have to be followed for safety reasons. I mentioned the only place to safely board for shelling would have used up the entire day to get to. There are boats that don’t follow these rules but safety is our number one goal. When I discussed this with you prior it was agreed upon and the trip deposit would have been refunded so you could book another Charter if necessary. If there was a way we could have made it happen we would have as customer satisfaction is our #1 goal. After your trip you and your family seemed very pleased and happy with your day on the water as well with our Crew. Knowing you wanted a special day with your Grand kids I also provided beverages, snacks and fruit in which otherwise isn’t provided and was a welcomed surprise by you and your family. I printed out many places in which you could do some shelling as well as other family fun facts that were easily accessible for you. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and or misunderstanding. When your back in Florida we would Love to make it up to you in any way we can. Our crew works very hard to make a special day with all of our guests and work very hard to do so. We like to think of everyone as Family. With regards to fishing there are many places on the beach to fish some take more time than others and we always strive to find great places to catch fish. Please always remember to advice of any issues upon returning to port as Customer Satisfaction is very important and we truly apologize that we for any reason didn’t meet your expectations. If you have any questions or would like to discuss what we could have done differently please feel free to contact me anytime. Sincerely, Michele McQuinn

We had some family in town and they decided they wanted to go out fishing and out on a boat for the first time. I couldn’t have picked a better charter. These guys are as professional as they come and will put you right on the fish ASAP. We we’re pulling up Snapper within the first 15 minutes. My youngest cousin got to catch his first fish and it’ll be a memory he won’t soon forget! We had such an awesome time that we’re planning another trip soon. You can’t go wrong here, book with Capt Mike and enjoy some of the best backwater fishing SWFL has to offer.

Kimberly we are so happy you enjoyed fishing with us on the Sheila Marie. We are dedicated to all our customers and having the children and even sometimes adults catch their first fish is very memorable and we are glad it was with us! Thanks for the great memories and looking forward to seeing you again soon! Thanks from all of us at Pontoon Boat Tours
