This was a great trip.  We went on 4 hour trip. It was short trip but they got us on the fish quickly.  The 7 of us caught over 40 keepers and had to release almost that many that were out of season or to small.  Fish caught were Red Snapper, Mackerel, and Vermilion.  Would highly recommend.  We will definitely use when come back and take longer trip.

Half-day trip with Captain Dean Cox.  Captain Dean and Billy were excellent. They were very friendly knowledgeable and accommodating.  We finished three different spots and caught over 60 fish with over 30 of them being fish we were able to keep.  I would recommend using Seahorse for fishing and plan on doing another trip next time in Destin.

This was a family reunion trip that included adults and older teenagers.  Everyone loved the trip and talked about doing it again in the future.  Captain Cox continued to move to better grounds anytime the biting became slow.  Ed, the mate, worked constantly keeping everyone with bait in the water.  We loved Destin and will return.

We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this boat.  Captain Dean had us on the fish from the start.  My daughter caught two fish at one time in about 30 seconds.  We were on the fish all day.  Wonderful boat and Ed is a great first mate.  Ed worked his tail off keeping our kids fishing.  We caught over 80 fish.

Great day.  Captain Dean put us on the fish all day.  After bottom fishing and landing many amberjack, white snapper, red snapper, and a grouper he suggested trolling.  Landed 9 big king mackerel in about 1.5 hours.  Eddie and Alyssa were great.  Highly, highly recommend this boat and crew.

Captain Dean was fantastic. He knew right where the fish where and made excellent use of our time. First mate Ed made our experience great. He really knows what he is doing and is very easy to get along with. Will definitely book this boat again.

First, let me say that the communication prior to the trip with Captain Dean was very good.  Clear and concise.  We were out of the docks at 6 AM just like planned - within 20 minutes, everyone was marveling at the dolphins and catching bait up to six at a time - which thrilled the little ones.  Each and every “fishing” attempt led to someone landing a fish of some type, from trigger, to various snapper, cobia, amberjack and king mackerels.  The fish was cut, cleaned and packed in our coolers.  We ate all of it that night and it was delicious.

Rough water that day but still had a good time.  Our deck hand Ed was very patient and helpful, he always spoke with respect to everyone as did the captain. We were not really fond of catching bait, but that seems to be the norm for all the boats. We did not get to keep a lot as most of what we caught was out of season, not edible or the wrong size?? The big dusky shark was of course cut loose as soon as possible as we were told it is protected. The crew was very efficient in identifying the species and what to do with it. We did get some white snapper and a couple of vermilion to keep. They were delicious! An 8 hour trip would have been better than the 6 hour. Six was not enough.
