Deep sea fishing aboard the Great Escape-Good time for grandkids

about 20 days ago
Trip was good and the grandkids had a lot of fun. Captain and crew did a good job, even though we did not catch as many keepers as hoped. Would recommend them again.

Great trip.

Captain Jason and Barney were very friendly and outgoing. We had a wonderful trip until my son and his friends became sea sick. We headed in early. I will definitely go out with The Great Escape again. I highly recommend them. Even though we came in early we brought in the biggest haul of the morning. Barney and Jason worked well together. Barney was quick and very helpful with baiting and removing the fish from our lines. Thanks for helping my family make great memories.
