  • Miserable is the word that comes to mind when asked how my experience was. We went on an 8 hour trip and spent no more than 1 hour with lines in the actual ocean. Nothing was caught on our trip and then the staff had the nerve to come around asking for tips. When asked about the biggest catch jackpot both my father and boyfriend contributed to we were not given a straight answer therefore left to assume the crew kept the money. To summarize, hundreds of dollars later we paid to basically take a 7 hour boat ride and cast a total of 5 times max. Do not waste your money, go elsewhere.
  • Understaffed. Poor customer service. I take employees every year on a trip. Spend thousands every year doing it. I've taken whole scout troops before out of Corpus and other charters in South Padre. I know what a good trip should be. They had 2 deck hands for 50+ people fishing. In order for my employees to enjoy the trip, I was running around helping my folks untangle lines, unhook fish, tie broken lines, keep bait stocked, etc. so much that other people on the boat thought I worked there and were asking me to help. We headed back early without everyone having a limit. Arrived at port with 20minutes left on our "5 hour" trip. I brought it up to management back at the dock how much I worked and how little I fished and their reply to me was, "You should've chartered the whole boat". Very poor response to a repeat customer who will be taking business elsewhere. 2 stars because they put us on the fish.
  • We were very disappointed by this charter. We were out for 5 hours, approximately 1.5 hours were spent on fishing, the remainder were failed attempts to drive to locations to catch a fish. There must have been 30+ people on the boat, and not a single person caught a fish. At the beginning of the day they collected $10 from those willing to bet for who would catch the biggest fish. At the end of the day, when NO ONE caught a fish, THEY kept the money, not making any attempts to give the money back. Even though it was not a lot of money, the action itself said a lot for the crew. There was also a man working, that was not wearing a marked t-shirt, obnoxiously yelling all of the time, that was chain smoking around everyone, including pregnant women and children. Needless to say we would never again come back.
  • Had a FANTASTIC time on the Wharf Cat, and I didn't even catch any fish! The crew and the Captain were both awesome. They showed us how to do anything, kept the atmosphere fun and informative. They were very quick when anyone had an issue or a fish on the line. The boat was clean and all the equipment worked perfectly. Several fish were caught just not by me lol but not for lack of effort of the crew!
  • My husband enjoys fishing out of here, and had good luck. The only problem is they sometimes cancel fishing trips without contacting customers, which is very inconvenient if you're driving in from a distance.
