We had 4 of us that went on this trip and for the price that we paid it was amazing! For $65 a person I honestly would have been happy to just catch a fish. They baited us up, took the fish off the hook then cleaned all of our fish at the end of the trip. You were pretty much limited on how much you caught by how fast you could get the line to the bottom. Highly recommend this trip!!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Excellent fishing trip. The boat was not overcrowded and the Captain did his best to make sure we caught fish. I observed the other boats that came in and the amount of fish they caught were a only a handful compared to the catch on the Gulf Express.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Perfect trip for those who wanna give it a try without breaking the bank. There were about 30 people on the boat, it was big enough for it tho. We caught several fish, and the crewmen were good enough. Keep in mind it takes 2 hours to get to the fishing hole, 2 to get back so that leaves only 2 for fishing. The captain moves the boat often to keep the fish coming in. If you're a serious fisherman you may wanna drop a little more $$ on your trip, but for a group who just wanna give it a try this is the perfect answer!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

The boat was clean as could be. Parking was better than expected but hard to find in the dark. There are quite a few boats going out every morning make note of the name of your boat. When you finally do get to your boat look around for the check in booth it's not on the boat. You will need a hand towel baiting your hooks is the second most thing you will do for your trip. There is usually a person selling them as well as sun screen if you forget it. Great captain stayed at the wheel, boat limited out on fish by the time we had to head back. Deck hands spent most of their time getting the fish off the hooks, you will spend most of your time dropping the line and reeling it back in. Great experienceVerified TripShock! Traveler Review

Good trip. Deckhands were helpful and courteous. My 10 year old is still talking about how nice they were to him (3 days later). Captain navigated 7-8 foot storm swells very well. Only negative about the whole trip is that it's a little cramped between the bench and rails when deckhands need through to help others. I would definitely go on this trip again.Verified TripShock!

We had a group of fourteen go out on Tropical Winds last week with Broccoli and the rest of the crew. We had a great time, and everyone on board was very helpful and accommodating to our large group. Couldn't thank you all enough for such a great experience!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

This was my 3rd time booking with them. They crew is always so helpful! I love that they aren't packed with people. I had used a previous boat last year that held 65 people and it was awful. I go by myself since my hubby gets sick, and I brought in 22 fish. If you are wanting to fish, these guys are great. I will be using them again and again!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
