    Not Kid Friendly

    Pretty disappointed in our trip yesterday (Sept 2019). When we boarded the boat the captain never introduced himself or asked our names, throughout our 2 hour trip he barely made any conversation at all. We booked this trip for our 3 year old son, who loves fishing at home. Not sure what about this trip was supposed to be kid friendly. The captain was kind, but not overly friendly or entertaining for our son. There was nothing that was geared towards a kid. He got bored and fell asleep towards the end. My husband was pretty disappointed we didn't catch our first fish until the last 30 minutes of our trip. In total we ended up catching 8 small fish (catfish, lady fish) in that last 30 minutes. On the bright side, we did see 2 dolphins and a sea turtle which was cool.

    Kids inshore fishing

    The guide never even asked us our names. Never introduced himself or tried to make conversation. We didn’t really catch any fish which is not his fault at all. But at least try and make it fun for the kids even if they are not catching fish. He had no people skills at all. If your going to take kids out to fish at least know how to make it fun for them. Catching fish or not catching fish.
