Captain put us on some fish. I never thought I would get tired of catching fish, but it was non-stop action. We had a great time. Captain and Mate are great guys. Mate worked hard to make the trip enjoyable. I definitely cannot wait to go back and fish with these guys again.

Great Day aboard the Great Escape!!

about 1 month ago
It was our first time deep sea fishing, and this was a great experience. Captain Jason took us right to the fish, and First Mate Cayman did a great job rigging the reels and helping with the fishing. We caught about 18 fish, which was dinner for a couple of nights. Cayman filleted all of the fish for us. Overall great experience! Lessons learned — 1. For us, Dramamine before the trip was a good idea; water was choppy. 2. I suggest talking with the captain before making the reservation to discuss the type of fish that you’ll be catching; this will likely change depending on the time of year.
