We went bottom fishing and caught about 40 fish including Red Snapper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish. Of these 40 fish, 20 were Vermilion Snapper which we... More

First things first, Getaway Charters demonstrates a lot of PRIDE in what they do. Captain Ruben and Deckhand Josh were a blast to be on board with, they're professionalism definitely shows. We took a 6 hour morning trip, started with trolling and then moved out to deep water fishing where we caught multiple species of fish, including a very nice... More

Captain Ruben and Josh gave us a great time. We caught Spanish and King mackerel as well as Bonitas. I caught three on one line. The boat was clean and in excellent shape. Josh was knowledgeable and made sure everyone got a chance to reel in some fish. A very enjoyable part of our trip

Ruben and Thad did wonderful. Ruben pointed out dolphins and string rays. Thad had great patience with us all. Explained any questions and cleaned our fish. We did the 4 hours tour and caught Spanish and King Mackerel. I would recommend the trip to anyone.

Great day on the water, 5 hr trip with my son. Getaway Charters lived up to their reviews. Ruben and Thad made the trip very enjoyable, cleaned our fish and made reservations for us at a local restaurant where we feasted on our catch of the day. I would highly recommend Getaway.

Took the 6 hr trip with myself, my 2 sons and along with 2 of their friends. Ruben and Josh were excellent! Started the day catching some Spanish Mackrel and followed that up with some King Mackrel. We followed that up with landing another 4 to 5 species of fish. That is when the real fun started. Ruben got us... More

We had a great day out on the gulf. Took my wife and two girls (12&10) out on a four hour fishing excursion. Caught 20 fish, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. Captain Rubin and first mate Josh were great. Very knowledgeable and great with the kids. Kids are still talking about it, we will return!

This was a terrific trip! Getaway was very accommodating as our planned trip was going to be cancelled due to weather. They advanced our trip one day and upgraded us to the larger ship at no additional cost. Captain Reuben was great and mate Josh was wonderful. Together, they really made the trip for us. We caught Spanish mackerel for... More
