      Hold that fish forward to the camera! Fun times!
      Our half day fishing trip out of Jupiter was fun, and very well organized, on time, and returned at planned time of noon. My husband and I caught 6 fish between us, and the guides were very quick to help with bait and removing the fish! We did not catch large fish, but they did filet the four fish that were “keepers” as we call them back home, one of which was a nice sized snapper, which would have been delicious. We were disappointed in that we were unable to find a restaurant willing to prepare them for us, and unfortunately had to discard them. It may be helpful to provide a list of current restaurants to call to check on whether they “fix your catch” as my Google search was outdated, and two restaurants that formerly did this have stopped this service. There was also a little too much smoking going on in the front of the boat that drifted back when we would travel to new fishing spots. The captain and crew seemed to work very hard to help us all in catching fish. We really enjoyed a lovely time fishing, and the weather was perfect! Thank you to Captain John, and helpers John and Christian!

      Great Afternoon out of Jupiter
      We had a great afternoon out on the ocean, learning how to cast and reel. It takes a little strength and balance. The guides were there every step of the way, instructing us, baiting hooks, managing lines, pulling in the catch, and providing encouragement. They made our day! My son and his friend (23) caught some mackarel and the crew cleaned and cut it for us. You can bring coolers with food and drinks.

      Good customer service
      I've been frequently this operation for over 20 yrs. I usually go once or twice a year..throughout these years the service by the mates on the deck is among.the best I've ever seen. This is very important to the customers experience. The fishing can be fast or sometimes slow but I feel the captain and crew are fast, friendly, and entertaining

      Great day out on the water
      It was a few years since my last trip. Different mates than before, but both provided a very high level of service making the day very enjoyable. They keep the hooks baited, untangled lines and coached the fisherman on how to reel in the catch. Expert fish cleaning available for your catch.

      Great time on the Blue Heron
      Three of us went out on a 4 hour morning trip on the Blue Heron on Sunday 8/20/2023 and had a great time despite the weather. It started out raining pretty bad but once we started heading out cleared up although windy and a bit rough. The Captain and crew were amazing and wasted no time keeping bait on your rig and back in the water to get in maximum fishing time. When we got back they offered to clean/filet the fish for everyone, and ice if needed for the trip home to keep everything fresh. Thank you Captain Johnny and crew for a memorable trip.

      Not worth the $90 I paid online when I could have paid $55 in person. False advertising as they don't catch Mahi Mahi.
      All in all I found the crew to be very experienced and helpful. Like most drift boats expect a lot of line tangles which can be somewhat frustrating. When 20 people are fishing on one side of the boat it can seem overcrowded. I was surprised that online I booked the charter for $90 plus tax total being$103.00 yet others in person paid $55 for the same 6 hour trip. Blue Heron's advertising shows pictures of dolphin ( Mahi Mahi) caught. Which is what attracted me to this charter. The crew told me they never catch Mahi Mahi so I was pretty disappointed in that. Mostly small yellow tail snapper, 1 big red snapper and some out of season grouper along with other varieties that were thrown back. The crew seems to favor some of the locals that come often and assist them more in catching fish. They have a fish score system that they collect $10 per person and the biggest fish gets the pot. In my opinion this is a scam, it seems "a friend" won the pot but I think she is an employee. Then they ask for a tip but I figured they got that through the big fish scam.

      Awesome experience!!
      So happy to write a review for something I was very worried about. Hearing there could be 30 people fishing at the same time had me thinking lines tangled everywhere. But I was wrong.check in was fast and organized. Poles were loaded and ready to go. Trip to fish was short and we had our lines in the water quickly.I was fortunate to hook one quickly and that made me happy. People did catch fish. If the catching stopped for too long we moved on.Lines did get tangled but Issac and Sonic were fast to help out. Very fast to get more bait on your hook after you fed the fish. This charter was very inexpensive and they do depend on your tips. When you think what it costs to run this boat. Pay for bait and help. Never mind the up keep and dealing with difficult people day in and day out, if you have a happy experience, give them a decent tip. Also I found out after the fact, you really could help them if you bring extra food to share. They don't get a minute to eat. They deal with us and then have to clean up the boat on the way in and clean your fish. Then turn around and go right back out. Share a meatloaf sandwich or extra granola bars with the crew. I hear that's sonics favorite!! I said if i saw that in a review i would've brought something. So in putting it in my review. Well worth the money and time. I will definitely be a return customer!!

      Excellent days on the warer
      I have been fishing the Blue Heron the last 5 weeks on fridays. I cannot say enough about the crew and Captain Johnny. They are the best! Very attentive from the time you walk on until you leave. Puts you on fish all the time. Remember it’s called fishing, and not catching. They will do their best to help you if you are not an experienced fisher person. I look forward to my next trip and there’s no reason to look anywhere else. They make sure your experience is first class!

      Offshore fishing
      The boat was in great shape everything was new and clean . The crew was polite and professional, the kept us constantly baited and maximized our fishing time. They went out of there west to make the trip a great memory for my grandson. Thank you to all the crew, we will return.

    We were supposed to go on the 6 hour am trip 12/8/23. It was uncertain if we would get to go because the minimum booking is 10 people and as of 8:10am we had 6 people. Then enters the Captain who said, “Well we have 4-6 ft seas, it’s going to be really rough and in my opinion it’s a really bad idea to go out.”He then went on to say that he was very close to calling off the trip himself. In my opinion, I think he wanted us the customers to be concerned and willingly opt out of the trip. Well, that’s what happened but not because we were concerned about rough seas. We’re fishermen and surfers and no stranger to rocking around a boat for 6 hours. It was his terrible attitude and tone that did it. No worries, because at least the Captain went on to suggest that we go to the casino and gamble and get hookers. I’m not making this up by the way. The absolute rudest and most unprofessional boat Captain I’ve ever encountered. To make matters worse this trip was supposed to be in honor of our best friend who recently passed away. I would literally crawl over broken glass before going out with this crew and will most definitely recommend against their charter to all my out of town clients who seek my advice on who gets the fish in PBC.

    Crew was extremely attentive and made sure my son had an unforgettable experience. We caught a ton of fish and experienced bull sharks while fishing. Lots of energy by Captain and crew. Would definitely book again and recommend to anyone looking to do some deep sea fishing.

    I have used their services several times in the past. I would consider myself by capable fisherman. I wanted to do a quick half-day trip before I jumped on a plane. They have a first come first serve rule ( meaning the first person get the best spot) the rear of the boat because there are less likely to get tangled up on. I was the first person to arrive at the dock. But I was the last to get on to buy additional ticket. They place me directly in the center of all the other lines and poles. I pulled in several fish That trip. I kept being harassed by the crew members when I was winding up a fish. I do admit it was difficult to weave up and down through all the lines that was out when I had a fish on. Other fishermen had difficulties as well, but I was singled out. I attempted to go to the rear of the boat only to get harassed to go back where I came from by crew members. I did catch fish and it got tangled with another Fishmans line that has a fish on and
    they gave it no thought and gave him the better fish. The rear of the boat was where all the fish get caught anywhere else your line at is just getting cut half the time.

    The mates were some of the hardest working fast baiting reel-fixing courteous bunch you can have. The weather was sloppy and the winds were high. They kept everyone baited and happy. Capt- good bunch of fellows.

    thank you

    We had a great time. The guides were excellent at helping, teaching and encouraging our family who had no experience fishing before. Every group left catching something that they could take home. It was a memorable morning at sea!

    First of all, great, high energy, hard working professional crew. This was the first time in my adult life that I’ve had an opportunity to do this and am so glad I came here! The high point of the day was catching a huge black fin tuna (35 - 40 lbs.) I had a crew member working with me as I reeled him in. Had a real thrill at the end as shark took about a third of my catch (my “tax” for catching a trophy fish.)
    This was the experience of a lifetime and am now planning my next fishing trip with this crew on a future visit.

    Can’t recommend enough!!

    The crew was great! They were a lot of fun & knowledgable. Everyone in our group caught at least one fish that we were able to take home even though we were not experienced fishers! When I caught a large king mackerel the team used a gaff to get the fish onboard and filleted it when we docked. Highly recommend!
    Side tip- if you take the fish to a local restaurant they will cook it for you!

    We had a family trip, 5 adults and 2 kids, and the reviews were very accurate. We had a great experience! The crew was amazing and allowed us to learn how to fish and how to detangle lines.

    We were fortunate that the boat was only about 50% capacity, so the crew actually had time to help our kids.

    The captain kept everything in check, he only had a few salty remarks about our lack of fishing skills.

    We really appreciated the accommodations and the personality of the crew. Definitely will come back again.

    I have taken fishing charters before but these guys are the best. They are friendly, helpful and lots of fun. They work hard to make sure that everyone on the boat has a wonderful experience. This trip puts you right in the gulf stream and the fishing is really good. A crew member hooked a King Mackerel and handed the rod to my wife who had never caught anything very big and she was able to reel it in. I wanted to catch something bigger than I had ever caught before and one of the crew hooked a 7ft bull shark and handed the rod to me so I could get it in. It was an experience that we will never forget.

    My son and I went on the Thursday excursion (6 hours) and it was phenomenal. The crew on this boat is always great and extremely attentive. We caught tons of fish. I’ve been out with these crew members for many years now and it’s always a great time. I highly recommend the trip.
