The fishing was great. The deckhands were rude. When they were calling out the numbers to give people their fish one elderly gentleman didn't get through the crowd fast enough so the deckhand, Prospect, tossed them to him from 3 feet away. We wanted to...More

There are other choices. Woody's Sport Center was a way better experience. Another choice I'd Dolphin Dock. You can't trust these guys to keep your trip booked or book your trip correctly. They screwed up both times.

We had a great time. the deckhands were great. They hung out with our smaller kids and helped the older ones reel in some big fish. The captain came down and helped the deckhands and even went fishing with us.

I doubt they will respond to this post. Give them a call and I'm sure they will let you know. It is a large boat. I think the electric rod and reel is the limiting factor on the max capacity. (They only have so many... More
