Crew was very friendly and fun to be around. They worked hard to put us on fish and we caught a few bonito. I would recommend this charter for families. Thanks for a good first charter!

The Diesel engine on the boat appears to be very old…it was so noisy that we had to stuff our ears to block the noise. Exhaust fumes swirled around the rear deck where we sat with the fishing rods…it was very unpleasant. It’s a pity because the Capt and crew were capable & willing…

I’ve been a Captain for 21 years and opertated hundred of boats with diesel motors. Unfortunately they all are loud and have exhaust. We strive to keep the fuel injectors clean so the exhaust fumes are minimal. Our charter boat is one of the better boats regarding the fumes that I’ve operated. I understand your not familar with sportfishing boats as you mention that it was your first time out. Thanks for your business and the review.

Although the weather did not cooperate I was told the sea was not bad and that was not accurate. The trip was not comfortable at all. The captain was polite but the person that was helping spent the day inside of the cabin with the kids. His choice of music and language around the kids was less than professional. I would not recommend

The captain was sick and didn’t really speak to us accept to go over boat rules.  The young man assisting was amazing and did a great job helping us and cleaning our fish after the trip.  He even recommended a place to eat when we were done.
