Came to Destin for a work trip, and decided to have a little fun as well and booked the deep sea fishing trip. The crew were not only incredibly helpful, but they were hilarious! We didn't catch as many fish as we would have liked, but we walked away with enough for dinner for 4! This was a great experience, and I would absolutely book again if I return to Destin!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Easy booking process, easy to find and ample parking. Fishing was a fun activity on a rainy day in Destin. Kids had a great time, but take Seasickness meds before heading out- it's a long trip if you don't feel well.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Whole family had a great time. Was a wonderful experience. The six hour trip included riding time, so I did wish that we would have spent less time moving to different spots, because that meant less actually fishing time. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience, and I would recommend it to others.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Amee, thanks for the great review! With any party boat fishing trip you can expect half the time to be travel time (because our federal permits require us to fish 9 miles or more out) and the other half to be fishing time. If the captain thinks there are issues with lines being tangled,dolphins stealing your fish or the fishing to be slow then he'll move the boat. The goal is to send every guest home with a smile and some fresh fish! Thank you so much for coming and please come back again soon!

We had a great time (and luckily great weather) during our 6 hour fishing trip on 12/18/16. It was a full boat (35 people), but we had enough room to fish and caught at least 25-30 fish (able to keep 12-13 that were in season). The crew was awesome, particularly Pete, for helping take off our fish and answer all of our questions. It was a 6 hour trip, but we stayed out an extra hour to keep fishing. They filleted all the fish, and we took some to Dewey Destin's Restaurant, where they cooked them for us that night. I don't usually get sea sick, but did on this trip. I would recommend Dramamine for sure. We thought the value for this trip was great and would definitely do it again if we return to Destin.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Thanks Jamie for coming out! We are so sorry you got sick. That does happen for some people from time to time. We definitely recommend taking dramamine or some form of motion sickness pill the night before your trip so that way it's already in your system when you board the boat. Our crew had a great time helping you guys too and were glad you got to take advantage of cooking your catch! Please come back and see us soon!
