  • A tropical storm ruined our offshore fishing plans in Galveston. We called this place and they were our saving grace, promising a sure fire fishing trip within our budget. As we were paying for our bay fishing trip the day before the off shore fishing trip they nonchalantly said our trip was cancelled and no one else would go out on a private charter. We drove all the way there from Oklahoma and they didn't even have the courtesy to warn us in time to book a trip. They offered an overnight trip the day after and said it was really great because YOU CAN SLEEP ON THE BOAT!! Sleep? Sleep through a 1k fishing trip? Impractical! We were really robbed of precious time to book another trip. Everywhere we called for an 8 hr was already booked! We finally found a smaller private charter for less time that was available from Woody's. Captain Aimen was awesome! We caught the limit of Red Snapper. They worked tirelessly to get the fish we were hoping for. I suggest calling them or Dolphin Dock instead. You can't trust Fisherman's Wharf! I understand that trips get cancelled especially in potential bad weather. I don't understand waiting all day to tell us. Give people time to make other arrangements. There were plenty still willing to go but all booked by the time they told us. Oh! And they messed up our bay trip. They gave us a half day quote for full day so it was about $200 more expensive than expected! When we came back it was a 2 hour wait to clean our 4 fish that were not big at all.
  • Absolutely loved our dolphin watching experience! I know we saw over a hundred dolphins and the crew was really knowledgeable about the area and give us tons of local trivia. I truly enjoyed our time and appreciate Chad and Chris as our and guide. Thank you! We will be back!
  • $12 Dolphin watch rides. Super Fun! The captain's ship has absolutely no shade, BRING SUNSCREEN!
  • I've been fishing in "cattle boats" for 55 years and today's trip on the Wharf Cat was the most enjoyable of them all. Unbelievable deck hands and Captain.
  • Loved going to San Jose Island.Nice place to fish.The boat ride was great and even saw dolphins.Only regrets---we forgot to bring our poles to fish and no shells.Overall,great experience.
