5 star ratingThis is my third trip on this full day party boat fishing trip. Had a great time and the entire boat caught lots of yellowtail, snapper and other bottom fish. I love the fact that the mates are there to help you in every aspect of the fishing trip. I highly recommend this boat. Also, please note you must bring your own cooler with water, sodas, beer ( no hard liquor allowed), food & snacks as they are not sold or provided on the boat.

5 star ratingParking is tough. Great place to see the birds waiting for fish leftovers! Took cloud nine out for 1/2 day fishing charter. Had gear time with capt Eric and first mate Jordon. Went out to alligator reef and caught a bunch if nice yellow tail snapper. Then the crew cleaned up the fish for us and got us a reservation at his friends restaurant - chef Micheal's north of marina. Dinner with our fresh catch was awesome!! Thanks capt Eric and Jordan!
