1. The night before the trip, Capt Tony called to see if we might want to cancel because the weather might not be good, but he would “leave it up to us to decide, but if we leave the marina you will be charged the full amount.”- All weather forecasts that we found reported good weather for that day-so we chose to go on the trip.
2. We were scheduled for 7-11, but Capt Tony suggested that we actually leave at 8 instead, not sure why , but OK, assuming he meant 8-12 instead.
3. Once we got to the marina, the Capt notified us that his Mate did not show up, so a friend of his would help instead-The friend stood and smoked cigarettes the ENTIRE trip.
4. Capt Tony would only allow us to put out 2 fishing poles, even though we were scheduled for six fishermen.
5. The boat engine was smoking most of the trip and obviously having mechanical problems
6. At approx. 1025, Cap Tony decided that we were going back to the marina. Over 1 and a half hours early!
7. When we got back, his friend informed us that he was “late for his real job” and had to leave
8. Then, Capt Tony informed us that he would not charge us the 20% gratuity for his friend, as if he was doing us a favor, but proceeded to charge us the entire amount for the trip!
My husband and I are both very familiar with deep water fishing and charters.We were both very appalled and feel as though we were taken advantage of.  We never should have paid him, due to his lack of service.  I wish someone would contact me from your company about this.  I don’t want other people to get the same treatment that my family received.  Thank you, Wendy Jones 989-640-5366

Hi Wendy Just wanted to reach out because of your bad trip. 1. You guys booked a near shore beach trip, they run from 8 to 12 for morning trips. The call the night before was due to a forecast of 4x4 at 20 knots. Even though it might be sunny and pretty on land it is usually very different on the ocean. We had cancelled the afternoon for that reason. When I explained this to your husband you said that you still wanted to go. 3. The mate did not show because all of the charter boats had cancelled their trips and the mate did not think anyone would go out with the forecast. We did only because it was a near beach trip Not a Deep Water Trip. The friend was a Captain from another charter boat that had cancelled their trip and agreed to come so that you guys could go out. I not sure how you kept up with whether he smoked cigs or not because he never left the Bridge of the boat well away from everyone. We never run 6 lines bottom fishing and less if the water if rough so that we don’t spend all the time untangling all the lines. 5. Yes we did blow a 20,000 dollar engine (sorry for that) but we kept you guys fishing with one engine, that was not in the plans. 6 If you are familiar with Charters you know that your 4 hour trip was Dock to Dock, all Charters are Dock to Dock, which put you leaving a little before 8 and returning around 12 noon. We are sorry that you feel taken because we took 100 dollars of the trip price. We were just trying to be fair with your challenging rough brown dirty water trip.

I book with these guys about every 6 months. We do this charter because we found the boat to be the most comfortable around. The captain and mate are very customer oriented and attentive to our needs. Anyone can take you to bottom fish for 3-5 pounds, but no one works harder to put you on a truly memorable fishing experience. That said credibility is stellar and that is another reason we keep coming back. Captain Tony is my choice for Captain of the year

We have booked with these guys a lot over the past 10 years. We take our customers on these trips and would not do that if this wasn’t a first class Charter Boat. We know that fishing by nature has good days and not so good days but these guys are always giving it a 100%. Most trips are spectacular but we always have a great time on all the trips. Do yourself a favor and give it a go with Deep Water Charter, you will be glad you did, we are.
