Customer Testimonials

Hear what our happy customers are saying...

"Excellent Choice"

“Excellent choice for catching sharks, especially for kids. Staff is friendly, and the two locations we boated to produced 3 types of sharks. I think everyone on board caught a shark, though most of us pulled in more than one. Smaller sharks around 6" and the larger toward 3'. Destinations are only 15-20 minutes away for the marina, which worked well with the young passengers. Price point is a steal for the memory!”

"Awesome Trip"

“Awesome trip. The captain and mates...Eric and Jack were great. I've done other big boat fishing like this on Hilton Head, but this boat got us fishing quickly and we spent a good 3.5 hours or more of fishing. Caught 4 small sharks and a sea bass, but others caught bigger sharks. Awesome trip. Would highly recommend for a family. They have snacks and drinks on board if you want to buy from them. Restrooms are actually very clean and usable. Note...don't bring bananas, you'll either have to eat them or throw them away, but you can't take them on the boat.”

"Our family had a wonderful cruise today!"

“Our family had a wonderful cruise today! The two captains were very knowledgeable yet down-to-earth and easy to talk to! They knew right where to take us, and we had an amazing encounter with the dolphins...up close, jumping out of the water, and swimming with their babies! Incredible! Priceless memories for a very reasonable price!”
