    Taken advantage of.

    The crew tried to make the best of it but the trip should have been cancelled. The seas were so rough it was difficult to stand much less fish. We then ended up sitting inside due to the storms. Probably only got about one hour of difficult fishing done and a few people caught fish. . In the end I feel like I donated $350 to Olin Marlers and got very little in return. I realize the weather is unpredictable but the storms were already coming in before we left dock. This leaves me to believe they wanted to make sure they got paid.

    Hi Jefferey, Thank you for choosing Olin Marler and your feedback is much appreciated. One of the most challenging parts of our business is the weather. Florida is a tough place to predict weather because it is likely to storm every day. If we didn't go out because of a few passing rain storms, we would likely never run. The seas can change quickly and we could leave out with 1-2 ft. seas and come back with 3-5 ft. We do apologize that the trip was not as you expected. Thank you again for choosing Olin Marler.

    Crew Professional - Trip, not so good...

    First and foremost, the crew were very professional. However, we had no idea that 4 of the 6 hours of the scheduled trip would be spent boating out to the first fishing spot, and returning back to shore. Likewise, the weather was pretty choppy and it rained. One final comment: We thought the inside cabin areas and bathrooms were dirty. We do not think we would want to go out on this boat again. Again, nothing negative about the crew.. Regards, Michael, Debra, and Connor Huntsville, AL p.s. coming back from the trip, the weather cleared, and most of the trip back was nice...

    Thank you Micheal for the review and feedback. I'm glad the crew was professional as this is one of the reasons customers choose our company. One a 6 hour trip, we are traveling 15-20 miles offshore. It takes approximately 2 hours. In the Summer, we must travel to deeper waters because fish bite better when it's cold. Just the slightest difference in water temp makes all the difference. I'll bring up the comment regarding the cabin cleanliness. If in case it was not up to par, we will improve.

    Had a blast and can't wait to go again!

    It was super easy to book through tripshock. Had a great time and the captain put us on a lot of fish! The deckhands were awesome and were very polite! Loved it and will definitely be coming back to olin marler!

    The night before I was scheduled to go out we received a call from the company that they overbooked. We rescheduled but it threw the date towards the end of the week which was also the end of vacation. On the rescheduled date we arrived at 5:30AM only to be told it would need to be reset because of weather. I felt like we should have been called about the weather delay rather than waiting for us to arrive. There was no mention of sorry about the overbooking, or inconvience to our plans. The actual trip was okay, not awesome but good.

    Hi Russell, Sorry again for the scheduling issues. We had to move around our boats due to personal reasons with our captains. Of course, we can't do much about weather and the trip you were on was cancelled last minute. We rather be safe than sorry when it comes putting our customers out on the water. Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you back in the future.

    Hi Adam, We are sorry to hear about your experience. We did have some difficulty with the equipment and had to move everyone from that trip to other future trips which led to limited availability. It is typical on these trips to fish at more than one location, we move based on what is showing on our equipment to get you to the most successful trip possible. When we left the dock, conditions were fine for fishing, but we are in Florida and storms come up randomly and fast. We did have issues with a pump, which we fixed and we apologize for the smell. Please reference this review so that we may offer you a discounted trip in the future. Thank you for your honest feedback.

    This trip sucked.

    Worst trip of my life. I thought I was going to die (stayed out despite approaching electrical storm). Kids weren't able to fish because the equipment was too difficult for 11 and 8 year olds. Bathroom was a special kind of disgusting. Originally booked for Tuesday, but moved for "mechanical issues". Turns out others were moved off of Tuesday for all kinds of different reasons (just be honest next time). LOL... There will never be a next time. I feel completely taken advantage of!!!

    Hi todd, We are sorry to hear about your experience and deeply apologize about your experience. To be honest, you were moved because the passing of our owner that caused some scheduling issues. We also had some minor mechanical issues that needed to be addressed, but are now resolved. Thats not your problem, but you asked for the truth. When we left the dock, conditions were fine for fishing, but we are in Florida and storms come randomly fast. We did have issues with a pump, which we fixed. We apologize for the smell. It was just a lot of unfortunate events all at once. Please reference this review so that we may offer you a discounted trip in the future. Thank you again for your honest feedback.

    Best Fishing Trip Ever!

    This was the best deep sea fishing trip that I have ever been on. The only complaint we had was that the bait was not fresh and was hard to put on the hook. But when we did get it on the hook, the fish were very cooperative. I think in the end we caught about 35 fish. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable. Great Trip!

    awesome fishing trip

    My family ranging in ages from 15 to 65 had a great day of off shore bottom fishing. The crew was awesome and were very knowledgeable and informative about life in the ocean. The captain took us to several sites about 20 miles offshore where the fishing was awesome. We caught several different species and the crew filleted the fish and bagged it and placed it on ice for us very quickly. This was our second time out with this crew and when we return we will definately book with them again. Their 40 years of experience is obvious and we would highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in catching lots of fish.
