We booked a bigger, nicer boat that had a mechanical issue at the last minute so jumped on this boat. I wish we would have stayed home. The captain and his brother (first mate) have no personality and didn’t even introduce themselves when we met...More

We got on the fishing boat and they wanted 6 people to sit on benches made for 4. We then head out to the water and the boat is not big enough to counter the waves we hit. Every passenger on the boat got sick...More

He had a little rough sea but Jeff still got us on yellow fin tuna and one other kind. My son and me booked this trip since we can take some fish back to the apartments and we already ate some of the good fish...More

I was a little skeptical after I saw all the negative reviews left by people on Trip Advisor. But then I bounced to Yelp and everything was positive. The Captain and the deckhand were awesome. We had lines in the water the minute we left...More

My two sons, a good friend, his son, and I chartered with Captain Jeff for about 1/2 day. We read reviews, and although I was somewhat skeptical, my good friend had gone out with Capt Jeff about 2 years ago and had a great experience...More

This was by far the worst tour we've ever been on anywhere in the world (and we've been on a lot). Basically, I think the guy is a commercial fisherman topping up his income by taking tourists out on his boat. We wanted to go...More

Most people leaving negative reviews of this charter seem to do so because of lack of fish. Our group reeled in a once in a lifetime fish, a 250+ lb blue marlin, and we would still give zero stars if possible. At end of 3/4...More

This guy is a total fraud. If I could give it zero stars I would. He took us out when we shouldn’t have been out if I’m going off the huge waves and I can almost guarantee he knew we wouldn’t catch anything. But he...More
