We are not a fishing family, but I took my wife and 3 kids (11,13,15) without cell phones fishing with Captain Jeff. Jeff was prompt, professional, experienced, and worked hard to ensure that we had a great time. Our 6 hours fishing was the highlight of our week. Jeff has a lifetime of experience and knows the area quite well. I have been on many party boats and was impressed by Jeff's knowledge and skill. If we stayed in a place for 20 min and didn't catch anything, he moved on. We caught twenty fish which he cleaned for us. I didn't know this, but most restaurants in the area allow you to show up with your own fish and charge about 12-16 dollars for your meal (side dishes, cooking your fish, etc). Jeff worked his tail off. He would catch a fish then hand a rod to one of our kids, whenever anyone needed bait, he was there before you knew what was going on.
His boat was perfectly sized for our family. He usually charges extra for more than two people but didn't nickle and dime us and just said, "Don't worry about the kids." Although we paid for 6 hours, he didn't rush us at all. It was clear he just wanted us to have fun. He even spent 10 minutes boating around swimming dolphins which followed us home just to show us a unique experience.
Downfall: No bathroom and no canopy to block the sun.
Upside: Best outing with our family to date and was only about 50% more than a chartered fishing boat. My kids can't wait to go fishing again (they are in for a rude awakening when we head to the local lake.....and don't catch 20 fish).
