Great fun cruise with a very enthusiastic leader & knowledgeable captain. House-watching (captain pointed out items if interest), dolphin-spotting (one played in our surf!), sunset-enjoying (amazing!). Do it! White wine could be better quality & I recommended that they keep some red wine too. (Perhaps chill it.)

Pontoon ride leaves Johns Pass for a 90 minute cruise of the bay with a guarantee of dolphin sitings. The driver was very informative on the surroundings.

We booked a sunset cruise and the crew did a great job explaining what we were seeing. We saw lots of Dolphin swimming near are boat. Had a great sunset and free beer and wine. Great jobs

We did the half day of fishing and it was great. It was a holiday, so the boat was full, but that didn't take away from our fun. We never tangled lines with anyone. Caught a number of fish, maybe not as much as some of the others, but we don't eat a lot of fish, so we were happy... More

We travelled out to Treasure Island for my husband's surprise birthday getaway. He had the choice of doing anything the next day (Saturday) and he chose the 5 Hour Deep Sea Fishing. At St. John's, we discovered Hubbard's Marina and booked our excursion. The process was easy from start to finish. They took care of our fishing licenses, provided rods... More

The Captain was great and very knowledgeable about the area. We got to see several Dolphins during the cruise. My wife and I had a great time and it was a good value for the cruise.

I've taken this trip twice now, hoping that my first experience was the exception. I boarded the boat at the Pier in Fort Desoto Park, hoping to have some success fishing on Egmont. The captain was arrogant both times. The crew, while friendly on the way out, spent a great deal of time on the way back telling us that... More

I had a once in a lifetime day yesterday. I took Hubbard's 10 hour trip. I want to thank Captain Bob, crew members Matt and Sebastian, and Galley cook and my new friend, Allison for a day to remember. I've been on a number of fishing boats. Have always had a really good time and have always found the crew... More

We visited Egmont Key and bought ferry tickets. But, crew was not included we were informed at the stand so they had to have tips. In cash. That was their payment. On the boat there was signs and bowls to remind us - no question about that! I think a serious company should pay their workers so that when I... More

Thought we were paying for excursion on big boat-was not told we were switching boats only that there was no galley cook (because there is no galley on the smaller boat!). 20 of us out on the smaller boat. Handle to bathroom door was broke so couldn't lock it. Smaller boat does not have liquor license-was not told this in... More
