“Not worth it”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

I booked a deep sea fishing trip with my grandson with Helgrens. They suggested we go on their two-for-one trip. It was a disaster. There was seating for less than half of the passengers so your only option on the way out and back was to sit on the deck or stand for 5 hours. The boat had about 40 people on it and we spent most of the trip untangling each others lines. The crew was helpful but unless you were at the back of the boat it was hopeless to try to fish. They also ran out of fresh bait. The offered to filet your fish at a cost of $3 per fish which I thought was rather expensive for one small fish. If you go on a trip with them DO NOT go on their two-for-one trip. Pay the regular price if you truly want to fish and enjoy yourself
