    My WRONG for not checking the fish in season, all we were allowed to peek were little 8"ers (bait fish) and the nice fish went back but the crew was good; cost about $103.00/lb for the two lbs of fish meat.

    Thanks for coming out with us! We also wished we could've kept all of what you were catching, but we simply can't do much about was is in season. You can always check out the Florida Wildlife Commission's website for up to date information, or feel free to call us. Thanks for letting us know about the crew! We appreciate hearing how well of a job they did so we'll be sure to let them know. Hope you come out again with us when there's more in season! Olin Marler

    Not to good.

    Told us wrong boat after asking two different times. Almost missed the trip. If it wasn't for the actual company calling me asking if I was still coming, we would have missed it.

    Hi Brandon, Your trip was moved from the Gulf Breeze to the Tropical Winds the day before, however, the check in location is still the same at 102 Harbor Blvd so you wouldn't have needed to go to a different location. There are quite a few boats that depart from Destin's harbor so we understand that sometimes it's difficult finding the check-in booth. That's why we ask you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the trip to ensure you find parking and locate the booth. We always call customers just to make sure they're on their way, so I'm glad you answered the phone and made the trip! I hope you had a great time and that we see you again soon! Thank you, Olin Marler

    Deep sea fishing

    During fishing trip want enough time in the afternoon. More like rush fishing drop the line and the move a few times. I had tangled my pole a couple times doing the line in the water. The guy who worked on the boat had his girlfriend watch me each time towards the end of the trip so he doesn't have to fix it. He was getting frustrated and it showed. Then when it was time to get our fishes it took long and we couldn't make it in time to get it fried at the restaurant by the boat. The guy who cut up the fish had to grab a couple beers before he started on anyone's fish when we docked. He kept telling the crowd please be sure to tip.

    We caught fish

    Too many people on the boat, Lots of tangles. They tried very hard to keep us on fish. I would do it again with less people.

    rough day

    Unfortunately my family and I were scheduled to fish the week Tropical Storm Cindy hit. Needless to say it was very rough and no one really enjoyed themselves, but that is out of the company's hands. ... read more

    Fishing was good. Would not use this company again.

    We had a 7:00 am charter booked with Olin Marler for Friday. On Wednesday, they called citing a "scheduling conflict" (they booked a private charter in our place). We were given the option of noon Friday, 7:00 am Sunday (after our guests had left town), or a refund. Members of my party had to rearrange travel plans to accommodate this change, but we were never given any compensation (or offered a discount), beyond a cancellation and full refund. ... read more

    Hi Marc, Thank you for the review and feedback. We are glad you had a good time. We apologize for the scheduling issues as we had some logistical issues on your original scheduled boat - This is not a typical situation. We found a great charter company to fill in and we are glad to hear you had a good time. It's not always smooth sailing, but we manage to make it work. You might be able to get on a boat with 10-15 people, but you'll also pay 2x-3x more. The only way to make it cost effective to go out is to have 30-35 customers on the trip. Thank you again for booking and we hope you will book with us again soon.

    Rough seas

    Hard to rate because the seas were very didn't feel too well. Fished the whole time and only caught 3 keepers. The trip out took about an hour, this may be normal but wish I would have known ahead of time. Nice crew

    Thanks John! We don't always fish in calm conditions but that doesn't stop the fish from biting! Our crew works really hard to make each customer enjoy their experience and want to come back fishing with us. We are glad you had fun and hope to see you again soon!

    Good time on the Gulf Breeze

    Enjoyed the trip, we left the dock on the posted time, and the captain put us on fish. The boat was in good order, and the crew polite and served us well. Pricing for the 6 hour trip was fair. Now for the negatives, the rod and reels my wife and I used were in poor shape. They were difficult to crank, and with a fish on, skipped during the retrieve, and were in need of having the spools fill with line. (they were about half full, which means you retrieve less line on each turn). Word to the wise, if you can, bring your own rods.
