Our group of nature lovers took this shrimper cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was shortly after Hurricane Matthew and they had to make some adjustments in location but they did so. Sara, the marine biology student, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about saltwater ecology and this vital marine livelihood.

We love the Tammy Jane not only as a fishing charter but for cruising around the Island! The captain maintains a safe and clean boat, plus he is a wonderful person

Don't waste your money. I took my daughter and granddaughter on August 1, 2016 and what a disappointment! The narrator was a student and not well informed about the area or catch. The nets were lowered and when time to haul in, the catch was three (3) white shrimp and 5 jelly fish. That's it! I had been on the... More

What a great experience!! We took an The 1:00 trip with adults and kids ages 4-8. The crew was great and very informative, we caught lots of sea life and a few pounds of shrimp. Not to mention multiple dolphin swimming a couple feet off the boat as they followed the nets, and a few sea gulls who just happened... More

Two families (10 people, 4 adults & 6 kids aged 7-13) booked the shrimping excursion based on our friends recommendation from last year. He told us to bring a cooler for the 20 lbs of shirmp we would bring in. Needless to say we were disappointed. It doesn't start out great when you have to oay $6/car to drive through... More

Watch as the shrimp trawler lowers the net. Listen to a an educational talk about the area. And what a surprise when they raise the net full of all manner of interesting sea life. Be hands on as you separate the skates and conches from the shrimp. Learn the fastest way to behead shrimp and if you are lucky go... More

Three weeks of leaving messages and no return phone call. One email sent and no return email. We had 7 adults looking forward to this experience. If you want to experience Tammy Jane Charter, you might want to have a back up plan.

We had a blast! The combination of educational information, together with the shrimping experience was superb. We got to see Dolphins, Porpoises, and sharks as we returned fish into the sea. Plus they gave us all some of the shrimp to take away. Thoroughly recommended!

Our family had a wonderful time fishing for shrimp on the Tammy Jane. Both adults and children were enthralled with learning about the treasures hauled up with the catch. Our group walked away with about 20 lbs of shrimp and magical memories. We got to see and touch baby sharks as well as butterfly rays. The best part was seeing... More

Went shrimpin' with Marley, Amanda, Captain John, and Michael.... They were all very helpful, informative, and fun! Marley is a nature lover and knows a plethora of information about nature, the ocean, the animals, and marine life in HHI. My family hung onto every word she said as she taught us so much about the sea life that surrounded us.... More
