This was a great trip. Left at 7:00 am and came back at 11:10 am. The trip was very enjoyable. Already left a review for San Jose Island. Jetty Boat trip was very quick and efficient.

We had a great morning trip. Left at 10 back by 1230 for lunch. Captain had a cute little dog. Some people brought bikes over. Some had fishing stuff. Lots of crabs on beach. Dolphins jumping and turtles. Just right trip for us.

The Captain was fantastic and one of the deckhands, Justin (aka Prospect) really made the trip great. Food and drink on board were affordable and we went out in October so there were only about 25 people, which was terrific. However there was another deck hand, Eric. He singlehandedly made the trip not as good as it could have been.... More

My family went on a fishing trip and caught a bunch of fish and a shark. Took my kiddos up to see what daddy caught and they loved it. Really a great place to charter a boat to go fishing.

We rode the boat out 4 hours then stopped to fish. We were in approx 200' of water and neither of the automatic reels my sister and I had worked. The deckhand tried to fix them for about 15 minutes then went and got us manual reels which also did not work. Finally my sister gave up so I took... More

I booked 3 of us on the 7:00 to 3:00 boat 6 weeks in advance. We got there a little after 6:00 on August 19, 2016 and was told by Eddie there were not enough people to go out and we have to go on the 8:00 to 1:00 boat instead. When we told him we drove in from Houston... More

Save your money. We were going east when the sun was setting. Boat driver, he could never be called a captain, arrived 5 mins before scheduled departure. Never said a word or pointed out interesting sites. It was pitiful. Pathetic.

We rented Fat Bikes from Camp Coyoacan and rode them down to Fisherman's Warf to get on the jetty boat. The guy at the bike rental was the most AWSOME person i have met in a while. The Jetty boat ride was the complete opposite! We took the 10am jetty to San Jose Island. The ride was ok. It wasn't... More
