Me and my kids had been looking forward to thisvall week. Let's start with this should of been weather canceled. It was cold and raining the seas were very rough had to hold on with on hand and try to bait your hook with the other. Between three of us only caught three fish in two hours.. Very boring and waste of my money. I would suggest that you check the weather before going, cause they don't care what the weather is like... Miserable..Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Scotty, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear about your experience and are disappointed it didn't meet your expectation. Yes, your trip was not the ideal conditions we typically like, but there are only so many perfect days in the year so we must attempt to fish whenever we have the chance. If charter boats only went out on the perfect days, I can assure you there would be no charter boats in business. I do however understand that we might need a better warning system for our customers to let them know that conditions will be rougher than normal. We usually do this prior to the trip, but we could improve the process some more. Thank you again for your review and we hope to have you fish again in the future. Regards, Management

My family sat at the front of the boat for the ride out. We were told waters would be a little rough. But what we weren't told was ALL bags needed to go inside, not just coolers and such. So I left my drawstring pack on my back. (Been deep sea fishing before w no issues) Needless to say the water was so rough every wave we got SOAKED. The temps were only around 68-70 so the water & wind combined, our muscles locked up from shaking that we were unable to move when we finally stopped. When we did stop we noticed it was my family and one other left on the outside because somehow everyone else was able to slide down the side and back in. Being up front we had no idea because we were hanging on for our lives. We weren't warned of the crashing waves coming inside the boat, so my whole pack got... read moreVerified TripShock!

Thank you for the review Laura. I'm sorry to hear about your experience and your phone getting ruined. I will be sure to get with the crew and let them know of this situation so we inform our customers better of crashing waves. No matter what boat you cruise on in Destin (even the dolphin tours), items run the risk of getting soaked. I'm glad the staff was helpful and attentive. Thank you for choosing Olin Marler and hope to see you back on your next trip. Regards, Management

Although the fishing trip was good, I thought that it could have been a little more personable. I was expecting a little more personable help and explaining of the catch, especially to the kids. I mean it was ok, just wasn't great. Fun, caught a lot of fish just nothing big. Red snapper was out of season so we couldn't keep any of them. Overall a good trip just don't expect a lot and you won't be disappointed.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

They should not have taken us out. It was too windy. 4 elderly ladies and 2 men were knocked over by a wave that came over the boat. One person hurt her back and another lost her ring from the massive strength of the wave. The workers never asked if they were ok. About 7 of us were throwing up and the workers never acknowledged us or asked if they could do anything. The boat was not clean, very gross and this was the first trip of the season. There was a guy that was drunk before he ever got on the boat and got worse thru the TERRIBLE 5 hour fishing trip. This crew was about making money not about the people having fun or even being safe.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Julee, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We are sorry to hear about your experience - this is not how we want customers to remember us by. I can assure you that the captain does not take customers out if the conditions are dangerous. Yes, it can be rough at times, but there are not enough calm days in the year for a fishing company to make a living. It's not uncommon to have a few large waves hit the boat. This trip you were on was not the first trip of the season - there have been several trips ran on this vessel prior to your trip date. We'll be sure to inform the crew of your comments so we can deliver the fishing experience we advertise. We apologize once again and hope you will reconsider fishing with us in the near future on a calmer day.

We had the best time. The workers on the boat was so nice and friendly and so willing to help. We took that fishing trip for my husband who has lung cancer it was one of his wishes. We never said anything about it to any of the crew we just wanted to have a good time. But we made some fantastic memories. Thank you so very much. We are hoping we have enough time to come visit you again. Thank you and all the hard workers. You are the best.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We had an excellent time on our deep sea fishing trip. The crew was a blast! They worked very hard to ensure the experience was great. Our captain communicated with crew through the entire trip to be sure we were catching, if we weren't he wouldn't waste anymore time at that spot. Due to red snapper being 'out of season' unfortunately we had to throw a lot back. We only went home with about 1 lb of fish between the 2 of us, but that's part of 'fishing.' Many of the people on the boat got sick, I would highly recommend reading the instructions/suggestions provided for the trip and bringing motion sickness medication (even if you think you don't need it.) Overall, this was an excellent trip at a great price!!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

been out deep sea fishing over 10 times and it was definitely the worst of the 10. 9 out of 10 people was sick and captain should never have taken us out with water so rough. 6 to 8 foot waves. very little fish was caught. clearly they were out to make the money and not benefit of the fisherman..but great staffVerified TripShock!

Hi Joe, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear about your experience. Although it was rougher than normal, we did not encounter 6-8 foot seas on this trip, but more along the line of 3-5ft (6-8 foot seas sustained would be a hazard). Deep sea fishing isn't always smooth waters. There isn't enough calm days in a year to make a living for a charter business. We ask that our customers always be prepared for choppy conditions, but we will never put our customers in dangerous seas. It's best to check the sea conditions or call us in advance if you are concerned about this type of fishing experience. We will do our best to accommodate our customers. Thank you again for our review and thank you for the comment about our staff.

Air conditioned cabin when it gets a little too hot.
Reeling up a a few mingo snapper on the first spot.

Another big catch from Olin Marler.
We do some trolling going to and from the fishing spots.
Just about ready to drop our lines in the "honey hole".
