Afternoon Fishing on the Bay

This was the third year I have taken my son fishing on the Calico Jack. They do a great job especially with kids.

I took my two boys out for their first time jet ski ride. Cody was very patient with instruction and very attentive while we were out in the waterways for safety lookout. Two days later, we took our boys out for their first time fishing. Cody was our crew mate. Like our previous experience, he was very friendly and helpful.... More

We are frequent visitors, going there for both the fishing charter and jet skis each year. Staff is friendly, and their coupons make the prices reasonable. Bait prices are high, but they are so close to our building that we'll pay for the convenience. We plan on being back !

My wife put together a private charter to celebrate my 50th birthday. We had about 20 people on the trip. The day was perfect! Almost everyone caught some fish. My daughter put together an excellent mix tape for some music. Got to see OC from a different perspective. The crew was very helpful.

This was a cheap trip for a 2 1/2 hour trip. We didn't catch anything but the highlight of our trip was that we seen multiple dauphins swiming in the bay.

You couldn't ask for a better, small, family run business! The boat was cleaner than any fishing boat I have ever been on and the crew was amazing. Don't bother looking anywhere else for a charter, book your trip with Back Bay Adventures, you won't regret it !!

Very friendly, easy to reserve and awesome staff. The price is just right when you can't afford that big charter boat. Would recommend to everyone
