The powers that be, allowed us a couple of weekends of Red Snapper fishing in September of this year. What a great time!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for the fun day of fishing my wife and I had on your boat several days ago. Despite the fact that the weather did not exactly work in our favor (as there had been stormy seas shortly before our arrival), the deck hands, Brian and JOhnny, worked hard to make our firt experience on a party boat a fun and memorable one. We caught a few fish we could not keep including a porgy and triggerfish. We really enjoyed taking the freshly cleaned fish next door to Grills Seafood for a nice dinner. Our cook also did a great job as well as the captain. Brenda and Sandy were great to work with in arranging the trip. Thanks to all for a great time working with professionals!

I took my son (10) on a party boat excursion and I would like to thank you and your crew for a professional job. I too own a company and I appreciate the professionalism!

On behalf of DRS and all of our employees and clients, we would like to thank all of you for a wonderful experience! You all made it a fun and enjoyable time.
Sandy, you made it a smooth and easy process and thank you for the following up with us everyday to keep us updated on the weather.
Lefty (Capt Billy) did a wonderful job once again putting us on the fish, and spending time with all of us. All the deck hands were also great, they can cook a great breakfast and lunch and all of them were so friendly and helpful at all times. They baited the fish, chatted with the employees and clients, which goes a long way. Their attention to detail was just amazing! As business owners, we respect employees that respect their employer. The deck hands not only were on the ball when it came to us, but their clean up on the boat was amazing. They never left site of us, they talked and cleaned the entire trip into shore. All of them talked highly about your company and the owner, even the new guy (Cook John) in the cabin, he cooked for all of us, joined us out on the deck to help with the finishing and at the end of the day, he was scrubbing the hand rails in the cabin! Turtle (Deckhand John) and Kyle(Deckhand) were sweet hearts as well; they really took the opportunity to talk with everyone and truly get to know them. You can tell they truly love thier job. This was such a great experience and as business owners, I am sure you hear the bad stuff, but we wanted to make sure you hear the praise also!
Thank you all for a wonderful experience!!!! We will certainly be utilizing your services again as well as referring your company to any contacts that are interested in fishing!

Gus and I have taken many “party” boats, and charter boats. In addition, we’ve owned our own boats up in Delaware, where we’re from. We’ve had some pretty bad experiences down here in Florida with regard to party boats with totally inadequate and not-very-knowledgeable captains and mates.
We’ve been sort of looking for a party boat that we could use on a fairly regular basis, and I think we’ve found one – yours. We were more than satisfied with the mates, and even though it was one of the mates 1st day, he did an excellent job, as did the other mate.
I’m sure that you get your share of complaints in email form…I just wanted you to know that we will be back…and we come over from Sebring, Florida, which is over a 2 hour ride.
Thanks again, and our compliments to the Captain and the Mates.
Jim Helwig and Gus Sapna, Sebring, Florida ps: we’re looking into chartering the small “Obsession” that takes 5 or 6 guys. If we can get the people (we need 2 more), we’ll be calling you.
