We were on the Luxury Offshore - 55' Hatteras out of Port Aransas, TX. Sent multiple emails about fishing for tuna. We were supposed to go out at 6am....the night before, we got a text that we would leave at 6:30am. At 6:30am, the mate was getting the boat ready...captain came out from cabin at 6:45 and invited us to board. Pulled out around 7am. Captain tells us that we're going to fish mainly for wahoo, but might get some blackfin tuna. Both great eating fish. Takes us out about 40 miles, and puts us on a school of Jack Crevalle...we land 3. Fun to catch, but they are junk fish. Rather than move to other fish, he stayed for 2.5 hours in the same area. We caught nothing but Jack Crevalle's and one Barracuda. They tried to tell us that Barracuda are excellent to eat (thats why you see them on every restaurant menu). After 2.5 hours of fishing, they ran out of bait, so then drove to another area to bottom fish for an hour...never got a bite. 8 hour trip over in 7. The mate was an excellent dude, the captain was a dud. Won't be back...don't waste your money on this charter

We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain to turn around.

Great trip with James (AKA Grandpa) seas were a little rough but that's too be expected. Had a Member of our group get very ill and not only was James's first thought his safety but we cut our trip short and he even discounted the fees. Very thankful and will use them again. I can't put the review in and not mention Daryl, his mate, as well. To notch crew!!

On our way out Captain Danny asked my youngest, “What are you looking to catch today?” He thought for a second and replied, “A good fight.” With 13 king mackerel on the boat you can tell that’s exactly what we got. Excellent captain, crew, and boat. We will be out again with Captain Danny in a few months for snapper season.

We had an amazing day of fishing . Capt. Danny and his mate were very friendly and helpful. They made sure that each of us had the chance to catch the kind of fish that we wanted. They interacted with each of our kids and also told us about themselves. Very laid back and enjoyable day!

This 8 hour trip with Captain Danny was, without a doubt, the most fun my family has had in a very long time. From start to finish Captain Danny and his right-hand-man Jake were the best of professionals while making us feel like we were on the boat with long-time friends. Everything was perfect…and HOLY COW does this man know how to find the fish! He put us right on top of them every time. Double and triple hook-ups were normal. The boat was awesome too. Even though it was rough out, it was a very smooth ride. We will be going back with Captain Danny as soon as we possibly can. It was a fishing trip of a lifetime!
