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.

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!

December fishing trip

about 23 days ago
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 :)

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!

Perfect day with sons

about 18 days ago
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!

Great Day aboard the Great Escape!!

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.

Great experience that my family and I enjoyed and will definitely do again! Jason was great and got us on fish on his first try. Jacob was a great deckhand. This Ohio bass fisherman had an amazing time!

Great experience! Can't wait to do it again!

Booking was very quick and easy. This was followed up with a text from the Captain about our expectations of the trip. Our group of 6 adults have all been fishing before so we will not newbies. We just wanted to go out and have a good time, maybe catch some dinner. The day of our trip, the weather didn't look amazing. It was cloudy and thunderstorms were promised for the afternoon. Capt Jason communicated with us before the trip and we discussed weather options. We braved the weather and went out anyway and are very glad we did! Capt Jason asked us if we wanted to catch live bait or buy some, we opted for saving time and bought some from a local live bait boat. Live bait fishing is apart of every fishing experience and since we've all done it before, we fig let's just get to fishing as quick as we can. We trolled on our way out to the fishing grounds and once we reached our destination, caught dozens of fish as well. Not everything was a keeper (that's a big part of fishing) but it was truly a blast! We even caught a huge cobia and saw a whale shark! Even though our trip was cut short, Capt Jason was great and had our safety in mind since we were no longer able to outrun the weather and it was getting rough. His deckhand, Cayman was also super fun and totally took care of our group, we never went without bait or help. My advice to people looking for a great State permitted boat is to definitely take this one! The boat is big, has an airconditioned cabin and prob the cleanest bathroom I've ever used on a boat. Take dramamine the night BEFORE your trip and bring cash to tip your deckhand. We caught some huge fish and can't wait to come back and do it again!

Great boat for fishing trips

Took my son out for his first deep sea fishing and he caught his first offshore fish. Water was choppy but captain tried to keep the ride as smooth as possible. Captain Jason and deckhand Jacob were great guys. Would recommend this charter to anyone.

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

about 4 months ago
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

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.

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.

Rough Day

about 2 years ago
The weather was not good but this is not the captains fault. However as we all battled the sea the inside of the boat smelled like diesel fuel. The air conditioning must have been pulling the air from the engine compartment. This made it unbearable to stay inside. Also both the captain and the first mate were smoking on the flying bridge. The air conditioning issue could have made the trip easier but it was really bad.

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.

We started dropping lines at 7am and were catching fish at 7:05am. This was an awesome trip with a great crew!!!

Great experience

about 7 months ago
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
