Over 90% of the customers on the boat were sick and I think the captain should inform the passengers of the ocean conditions prior to leaving and/or offer a raincheck. Not a good experience for my family.

Nice crew capt is on the money with the fishing, the message is very friendly. Be prepared to enjoy your trip and remember it's fishing.

If you suffer from motion sickness (seasick), board at your own risk and be prepared to spend most of the trip disoriented in the cabin and occasionally vomiting your guts overboard. Other than that, it is a great, fun trip. Check weather and dress appropriately, bring sunscreen, snack, and drink. Being in the great expanse of the ocean is an attitude adjustment worth the trip - much better when fish are biting :)

To avoid being sea sick do not drink alcohol the day prior to your trip, stay near the middle of the boat, and take motion sickness medication the night before your trip

From Our Editors

Fishful Thinking's 55-foot headboat was custom-built for fishing excursions from Fort Lauderdale. Outside the boat's central cabin, fishers of all ages and skill levels cast their lines into the waters, using their own equipment or borrowing from the charter's stock of rods, bait, and tackle. Trips run all through the weekend; on Saturday evening outings, you can watch the sun setting over the ocean.
