Had the worst trip out. On the freelance. Paid for extended day with a 78 dollars added to price and told extended day. And ended coming back to port 3 hours early. And caught 8 fish and was charged 30 for cleaning those. The trip was for 6 people and all came back not wanting to return. Hope this boat gets better at making customers happy with what they pay for.

As always, the Freelance Captain got us on fish. The deck hands handled all 50+ anglers flawlessly, as always. Breakfast burritos and the burgers for lunch were as 5 star as you can get, for a fishing boat, as always. Boats were slow, as always, but I still can't wait till my next trip....AS ALWAYS!

Great value (via groupon) for fishing trip. Great for kids. Boat is packed (i think we had over 55 passengers). Light on crew, but helpful. For those that have issues with surcharges.....Please READ the fine print of the coupon deal. Deal is valid ONLY Tues or Wed. Original price MUST be $86 or less. Any other days or higher pricing, there will be a surcharge (again, in the FINE PRINT). Will consider going back again.
