You should make sure to ask all your questions before booking a trip. We got charged a 6percent credit card fee before we left the dock. I later called the owner and he said it was a tax fee that would have been avoided had we brought cash. It was a very slow morning for fishing as we did not get anything to the boat other than bait fish. Captain Manny was great,tried his best, but there were no fish hitting that morning. Would look at a different charter service in the future. $1200 for six hours including gratuity with no fish. Good Luck Guys.

I am sorry this customer had a poor time fishing with us. Some days the fishing is great and sometimes not so great. The Spellbound is a really great boat with a crew that always works as hard as they can for their customers. Most of our customers leave our fishing charters having a great time whether they have a great catch or not. It's the adventure, the great boat & an amazing day at sea that most of our customers a really looking for. If the cost for the trip was to high they should have used a company with a smaller, older or a boat that is not as nice... The cost would have been lower.

We went on a charter with Captain Manny and his mate Chris aboard Spellbound. We had a great day and ended up landing an 8', 275lb silky shark. This was exactly what we wanted to catch as a group, and still 4 days later I think we are all still on cloud 9. We were reeling up a grey tilefish, and the shark actually ate the tilefish in half as we were reeling it up to the boat. Captain Manny and Chris were very quick to get new bait on the line and hook the shark, and then we got to take turns reeling him in. It was an unbelievable experience. Not only great fishing guides, but great tour guides. I will be back again, and anyone that asks what charter they should use it would be this one!

went on a private chartered experience on the spellbound and could not say enough about the trip! the staff were extremely accommodating for our time constraints and got us onto the water very quickly. we pulled in nearly a dozen tuna in a few hours on a clean, comfortable, spacious boat and were easily able to maneuver all 10 of us around the back deck. Captain Manny and Mike were awesome, and kept us dry after cruising through a downpour on our way home. they cleaned a number of fish for us to eat later that evening. would highly recommend to anyone in the area looking for a great fishing experience.
