Reviews of Deep Sea Private Fishing Charter Aboard The Great Escape

Great time
The crew was professional, pleasant to hang out with, and worked hard to put us on fish. Great time all around for my family. Definitely recommend this crew to everyone.

Great fishing trip
Captain Jason had us on fish all morning! Blaine worked very hard to make sure everyone was catching fish, keeping bait on the hooks and taking the fish off. After we returned to the dock Blaine cleaned and bagged our fish for us. We all had a great time and will definitely come back and fish with The Great Escape. Thank you Captain Jason and Blaine for making our trip so enjoyable. Brett H.

December fishing trip
Our family’s first deep sea fishing trip. Captain Jack did a great job finding us fish and his deck hand Blane worked very hard to keep our hooks baited. Very friendly crew. We did a four hour trip which was a good amount of time for beginners. We had so much fun we are going to go red snapper fishing in June. Thanks Captain Jack!!! You definitely earned a return customer and we will tell our friends about you :)

Great Escape Charter Boat
Totally awesome time!! Would recommend Captain Jason & first mate Blane ~both went beyond what we expected. Caught Trigger, Bonitia, Squirrel fish, Black Snapper. Even hooked a shark that was 250 lbs or more it made our trip a memorable beyond belief!!!

Caught our Limit
Want to thank Captain Jason and Deckhand Blane for an excellent fishing trip. We caught our limit of Red Snapper (2 per fisherman). Was a little shocked to find out that Red Snapper was our primary and only true target. this was mentioned up front. But if that is what the captain believes he can deliver on, we went for it and succeeded. Nice boat with a very comfortable interior. Would charter again. Thanks!

Perfect day with sons
This was an awesome day! We really enjoyed the way we were taken to so many great fishing spots by the captain. Even better was the way deck hand Vinny constantly helped us with our poles and bait, and shared his knowledge of the area with us. Especially enjoyed the way he helped each of my sons catch a shark!

Knowledgeable and Friendly
The guys were awesome. Even though we experienced some sea sickness, our family of 6 all caught a ton of fish. We had a blast. The guys were super friendly,patient and were awesome with the kids.

Deep sea fishing
Excellent time! They were great with kids ages 9, 14, 16. Friendly and fun crew. We caught red snappers, Bonita's, and even a king mackerel. Highly recommend these guys!

Couldn’t have gone better. Limited out on vermillion snapper. The mate was very informative and was always helping and the Captain knew where to go to always put us on the fish. Had a great time.

It was ok but not the best. We book a trip for 6 people and only used 5 fishing reels,so someone had to stop fishing to let other person fish.

Deep sea fishing charter
The gentlemen on the boat were very knowledgeable about the excursion. The boat was very nice, as it had an air conditioned interior along with a restroom. Our husband's were able to have a very nice one on one fishing experience and caught a large number of fish. We were very pleased with this trip!

Great experience
We took an afternoon 6 hr trip for red snapper. Weather was not friendly but we still managed to catch 22 fish. The only negative is that the boat only has sitting inside (very comfortable and with air conditioning) but we rather stay out and had to stand most of the trip. Really small nuisance and an overall great trip

The Great Escape fishing charter
We had a great experience with Captain Jason and First Mate Jacob. We caught our limit of Red Snapper several Bonita and topped that off with a 7 foot Hammer Head Shark. The equipment was good the boat comfortable.

2 sharks!
The water and wind were rougher than expected, but Captain Jason made the most of it We caught 4 small fish trolling, then switched to shark fishing, where we hooked not 1 but 2 good sized sharks. Incredible experience for my son and family!

Red Snapper
Jason did a great job making the trip safe & enjoyable for a group with mixed ages/experience levels. He is very serious about finding your group fish to catch. His first mate Jacob worked really hard the whole trip keeping the poles in the water. If you’re looking for a fun day on the water catching fish, these guys will give you 110%.

Awesome Time
We had a fantastic time!! We told the captain that we were looking for quantity over quality and he produced. It was my sons first time, so we weren’t concerned about keeping anything that we caught. I just wanted my son to catch some fish and he did just that. Bw 4 people fishing, we probably caught 100+ fish. Jason was a fantastic captain and Vinnie was probably the hardest working assistant in Florida. I will use these guys again when we return to Destin.. Thanks again for a great experience!! Drew

Fishing charter
The crew was friendly and helpful and prompt. It's family owned and that gives it a lot of charm. We were disappointed that we had to catch and release red snapper as they are a state boat not a federal boat. They gave us the option to cancel our reservation when we arrived but you can't disappoint 3 young boys for young boys like that. The crew did a very nice job of keeping our rod are rods and wheels in good order order. They also change gears when we snagged a shark to allow us to fish for the shark, that was very cool. Overall it was a very nice morning. We then took our catch to a local restaurant who cooked it up to perfection in multiple different dishes.
