    First time fishing in Destin

    This was our first family vacation to Destin and our first time to fish on a Destin party boat. We booked a 5 hr trip on the Vera Marie Wed 7/11/18. Everybody was very helpful and friendly. The fishing wasn't particularly good compared to other trips we have had but with gulf fishing there are no guarantees. Felt like the captain tried his best to get us in the fish and we caught a lot of small throwback fish and a few decent size snappers just not many keepers. This was the same for the boat as a whole. Crew was great and they even kept us out longer in hopes we could improve the catch. My grandson and son inlaw had a lot of fun so the whole trip was a big success. Thanks again to the captain and crew, we will see them next year for sure. Jeff Barrett San Antonio Tx

    my trip was awesome!

    best deep sea fishing trip i’ve been on! crew was very knowledgeable and offered help constantly. the captain put us on fish at each of the three stops, in my party we seemed to yell “fish on” often. great experience and trip, would highly recommend.

    6 hr fishing trip

    I would give the trip 5 stars if it was not for a deck hand name Jordan. You could tell he was not happy to be there immediately. He was rude to the passengers and his fellow crew members the entire trip. At one point a fellow crew member had to yell at him to get back to work and clean the fish because he was throwing a temper tantrum that someone had dulled his knife. Took an hour and a half after we got back to dock to get the fish cleaned became he was pissed off. I would never go back if he was on the boat. The remainder of the crew was outstanding but it only takes one bad apple to ruin the trip.

    Poor deep sea fishing review

    Giving a 2 because out of 6 hours we only got to fish for 1 hour. We paid for deep sea fishing not just ride around for 5 hours. Pretty disappointed.
