I took my 8 and 6 yr old son for a 4 hour fishing trip. Capt Joe was relaxed, knowledgeable and put us into saltwater fishing at every stop. We will be back.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

I sent my son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter (10) and grandson (8) on a three-hour bay fishing tour. They came back excited (all four had caught redfish)and bragging about the boat and its captain. Although expensive, it was money well spent for a first time adventure for the grandchildren.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We reserved a family fishing outing with Rodeo Joe. The excursion was awesome, and everyone had a great time. Rodeo Joe knows where some good spots are to drop anchor and fish, and he is very friendly and easy to talk to. A great experience!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We had a good time but were disappointed when we showed up and realized it was NOT an offshore charter. We were all excited to experience offshore fishing but didn't get it. I wish I had been made aware of the difference when booking.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Aside from the challenge of finding the boat etc, the event was well done. My grandsons,who were novice fishermen, enjoyed the experience and certainly enjoyed catching several fish even if they were mostly small catfish. Frankly, I was expecting something with more of a "deep sea fishing" flavor. But, I understand that given the size of the boat and the inexperience of the patrons, fishing essentially on the shore line was the best option. The next time I come to Destin, however, I will seek out a real "deep sea" fishing experience.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We were in Destin for a week and decided to book a 3 hour kid friendly charter with Capitan Joe and it was fantastic, if we are ever back in Destin we would book it again. The kids are still talking about the fishing trip and how much of a great time they had.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
