Deep sea fishing, but not many fish

A great trip with the kids (9 & 11). They caught a decent number of small fish and had fun doing it. As far as actually getting some fish to take home and eat, it didn't happen.

Great Trip

I went on this trip with my 12 year old son and had a great time. The crew was excellent and even though the fishing was a little slow they tried to put us on the fish and were great with all the passengers. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to learn how to fish or have children learning to fish, the crew was very helpful and patient with anyone who needed help. Thanks to the Captain and crew of the Reel Fun; we will definitely be back

horrible first time experience for a family

We are a fishing family. We have been to many lakes, rivers, and piers. We love the activity. However we always wanted to go on a trip with professionals and experts. However our excitement soon turned into a nightmare as soon as the boat took off. We were surrounded by a group of guys in their late twenties early thirties who were drinking like crazy and using inappropriate language front of our children. Later they even started smoking cigarettes and cigars like next to us. The crew members did nothing to control them and many of us on the boat were very uncomfortable and not able to concentrate to fish. I don't recommend this company especially if you are coming as a family. We regretted through out the whole trip and we were stuck for five hours. We were very disappointed and my kids asked not to ever go on these trips ever!!!!

Very Good For Families

Took my 12 and 11 year old sons. We had never fished before. Crew was very helpful. Front office staff was as well. We knew NOTHING so when we started out I slipped one of the crew $20 and he helped us run the line, tie the hooks use the reels etc etc. The extra tipo was appreciated but not requireed---he gave us the stra help before he knew I was tipping. Not a ton of fish caught----44 people caught maybe 30 fish of which maybe 5 were keepers but it was still fun. I would recommend highly.

SUPER FUN!

My nine year old son and I had a really fun time. We were first timers so we didn't know what to expect. The crew was super friendly and helped us set up our poles and equipment. We even saw a whale on our way out to fish. I highly recommend this activity.

Worth the trip

My eleven year old son and I went out on the Sum Fun. The captain and crew were great. My son caught his first legal Ling Cod. The fishing overall was fair, about two fish per rod.

Fishing time cut short.

Apparently, being a Sunday afternoon, the captain decided to pack it up early (one hour) and head out to sea to view some mythical blue whale that was reported being spotted but never seen by us, and some dolphins. During this time, the crew was washing the deck to save time so they wouldn't have to do it back at the dock. Hmm. Sounds fishy to me. That was a good hour of fishing time.
