The guide never even asked us our names. Never introduced himself or tried to make conversation. We didn’t really catch any fish which is not his fault at all. But at least try and make it fun for the kids even if they are not catching fish. He had no people skills at all. If your going to take kids out to fish at least know how to make it fun for them. Catching fish or not catching fish.

Not bad

It was ok but could’ve been a little more enthusiastic being a “kid” geared trip. My son had fun but being we’re from West Texas we don’t get to do a lot of fishing in the ocean and we didn’t feel like the guide cared too much that we were there or didn’t care too much to help us out or giving us any guidance. He barely spoke to us and the boat was extremely small, even for 5 people. If the water was any more rough it would’ve been a lot worse getting around I feel like. Like I said, it was an ok trip but not one id recommend to anyone and not one id book again.

Was an awesome time. Our guide was perfect. He was invasive of our conversation but was willing to hold a conversation with me while my girls fished. We only caught 1 fish but that was because my girls were impatient. we will be booking again next year

We booked both parasailing and fishing thru tripshock. The services were great. This is the second time we booked our excursions thru tripshock and we were very happy with the type of services they provided.

Joe is a pro! He was wonderful with our 2 boys ages 7 & 9, a mom with motion sickness vulnerability & a dad clueless about fishing. This was easily the favorite adventure from our trip! We all learned about fishing, boating & Destin. We all caught several fish and mom did not get sick! The smiles on the kids faces were priceless & he even entertained all their shark week questions. Thank you so much for a wonderful time - we'll definitely book you again the next time we are here. Highly recommend!!!
