This is our second fishing trip with this company. We have thoroughly enjoyed both trips and they have become treasured memories among our family. The Captain and Deckhand are pleasurable company and exceptionally knowledgeable of the area and of fishing. If you are looking for a good group to go deep sea fishing with, these guys are a great bet.

By far the best fishing charter I've been on! Captain Don and Josh the deckhand are top notch. We brought our 11 year old son and Josh was fantastic with him. We went out in December on a 10 hour trip not expecting to catch too much, we were wrong. We caught 13 different varieties of fish and when it... More

Great trip. Would have loved to have caught something bigger, but that's not the crews fault. They worked extra hard to find the fish and in the end, everyone managed to catch 2-3 triggerfish or red snappers. Would most definitely recommend Getaway Charters and will use them again, if in the area.

Good family time and family experience! To top it off they cleaned the fish for us and we took it to Shipps' Harbor Grill right in... More

Two buddies and I went out on a 6 hr trip. We asked if we could extend to 8 hours if wanted, After 6 hours with Captain Ruben and deck hand Josh we had caught all the fish we could could want and more. I suggest to go with more than three people too help reel in fish. Josh has... More

Josh and Reuben are wonderful! They brought the big boat since the swells were 4 to 6 feet today and it made for a comfortable trip. We caught a TON of spanish Mackeral and a couple nice kings. Also Bonita and my wife caught a big suckerfish. Highly recommend Getaway Charters if you want to have fun and catch a... More

On August 1st our family went deep sea fishing with Getaway Charters. We took a similar trip with them last summer as well. Capt. Don and Josh do everything within their power to make sure that their guests have a good time. The boat is roomy and well maintained and they have all the equipment you could want. We caught...
