Good despite few fish

My husband took our son to this professionally run charter boat for the 4 hour, where very few fish were caught (but can't be controlled it is nature after all). The captain and... read more

Super excited to do this as it's been on our bucket list for years! Our party of 6 (grampa, dad, and 4 teen grandsons) went during a 2 for 1 special on Tuesday (day before yesterday) for a 8 hour trip - we booked early, but fishing the day before had been cancelled, and those customers rolled over to Tuesday...

We had a great fishing trip although the water was really rough we caught a lot of fish and had them filleted on the dock. Boat was the Captain Paul and was small for 30 people. The crew was great we baited our hooks but they took all of the fish off that we caught.

Once again, we had an awesome angling experience with Dolphin Docks! We have been out with them many times, but, this last trip was the best ever. It was my wife's birthday weekend, and as usual, she wanted to go fishing. We were scheduled for a 12 hour trip on Saturday, and the 8 hour on Sunday, and then we... More

not very professional, chain-smoking and not particularly helpful, boat is not in great shape, didn't catch much (others also) -- 1/3 of the people were seasick, we did go to 4 different fishing spots and saw dolphins -- which was cool

I had the best time! The staff really make the difference. They were courteous, attentive, and patient. Caught over 18ibls of sand trout, spanish mackerel. Highly recommend for a first fishing trip! They can also watch your furry friend while you are gone if needed.

First off, I just wanted to preface this review with the fact that I basically sat on the fishing boat the entire time we were out at sea as I felt queezy and sick from the waves. However, I still rate this place a 5 star for customer service and overall experience. This was my first time fishing and I... More

Great crew and Captain. We had a good time. We limited out on Snapper. Saw water spouts (a first). Rigs could have been a little better, but you can bring your own.

On the 8 hr trip Justin, Skyler and the captain were spot on with customer service. They were polite and willing to help at any time throughout the trip. We caught our limit of Snapper, some King Mackerel and Ling. This was my lady's first trip out on open water and due to the great first time experience, it's going... More
