My fourth trip on this boat and never disappointed! The service is always excellent. You can't go wrong with this trip.
Great staff and great boat ride! Caught tons of fish and had lots of help. We were able to bring the fish that they cleaned for us to a local restaurant, Demitri’s, who cooked our fish for us! Will definitely be going back again:-) I highly recommend!!!
Great mates, very helpful and attentive to
Captain Jay and his crew were wonderful. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great day.
Your shipmate (Larry???) was absolutely excellent...a very hard worker!!!
The trip was great! Both fun and affordable for our whole family. Everyone had a good time and everyone caught fish. Will definitely take another trip in the future. Thanks to the captain and crew for making this an enjoyable experience!
The entire crew was extremely helpful even to the needy and somewhat rude guests. I will definitely come back and already told friends. I really wan to do a middle ground trip with you. Thanks!!
My son, nephew and brother in law had a great time on the fishing trip. They shared that the staff on the boat were very accommodating and they had a great experience.
Larry, the deck hand and Alicia were great. There were children on this trip and they handled them with care. Best deck hands I ever had on a boat fishing trip!
We enjoyed the whole trip. Everything was just as we wanted it to be.
Had a great time . The crew was very nice and helpful . THANK YOU .......

I feel that everyone involved with the fishing were focused on the fishermen. Very helpful, very polite and am looking forward to using your company again. I could see doing this once or twice a month.
great crew and a great day, very enjoyable trip !!!
The Crew was just Fantastic ! The boat was clean and well organized. Lots of action on the fishing spots and I like the cleaning of the fish on the way in rather than wait at the dock for it to be done .. Two Thumbs Up For Sure..
I will do this trip w this company many more times! They are amazing
Great crew nice well kept boat and we caught fish alot of fish will be back

The staff was welcoming and helpful. Had a great time and lots of laughs. And caught lots of fish. Thanks
knew nothing about sea fishing. they kindly gave us the basics and a few good pointers
I have never been on a fishing charter before, so I didn't know what to expect. Captain Jay, Larry and Alicia were our crew to hook some fish. The boat ride out was amazing. We had dolphins swimming along us, and eventually we had a pod playing in our wake and jumping out of the water. That was a super bonus. Larry and Alicia explained the do's and don't's before we got to our first spot. When we arrived, we dropped our line and not even a minute later we we're reeling up fish! Larry and Alicia did an awesome job unhooking, baiting our hook and putting our fish on a line. We went to a couple of fishing spots and each one you're reeling up fish. On our way back to land, they called our groups one by one and took pictures of our catch and cleaned them for us while we enjoyed the scenery back. My group caught a couple dozen fish. Gulfstar fishing has set the standard, and I would def book a trip with them again, as I recommend you do as well!
It was the best charter trip I have been on, and I have been on many. The Mates were excellent! Boat was very clean and well kept. I will definitely go on more trips with GulfStar!!
We had a great time, Larry was the best !
Larry was awesome, very helpful and made it a fun trip and captain knows the good fishing spots
The crew was very attentive with helping my father and I. Larry likes to talk and entertain the customers, that's a good thing. Even though it was Brady's first day, he didn't show it. I don't know how many times my rod jammed, he was speedy on the spot. Usually, I go to Clearwater for deep sea fishing. Gulfstar is closer, and the guys helped to make that decision. I hope to return soon. Towanda Cooper

We had a wonderful time. Larry was so helpful, nicest guy!!! I have never fished before let a lone deep sea fishing & im 72. He untangled my line so money times, baited my hook. Going to bring a brother from Texas on Dec. when he visits.
The crew were fantastic. The Captain was awesome. Larry was very, very helpful. Can't wait to come back again.
We had a blast. The crew was outstanding and very helpful. We caught a lot of fish and didn’t really have to remove them ourselves or bait our lines. The crew did all of that for us. Will truly recommended gulf star fishing to all my friends.
Excellent crew & captain! Couldn’t have been better!
Had a great time, even tho I barely caught any fish! I left a yelp review for you too. Thanks for the fun experience!
It was a great trip. I took members of my travel club (Happy Travelers -Tampa Bay Golf & Country Club) and everyone loved it. We will be back this fall...
It was a great experience and Larry was the best we will never go back to Clearwater we will stay with Gulfstar
We had a gret time Larry the mate was very experienced and funny and Captain Jack did a very good job of findind us fish overall it was a very fon day
I had a great time fishing capt and first mate did a great job thankyou.
Third time on the boat! Captain J and Larry are awesome! We will definitely be back
Larry was awesome! The weather was beautiful and it felt like a private charter.
Both mates were super attentive, making sure every person on the boat had what they needed. Captain made sure we didnt sit too long in one spot when the fishing died down. Clean boat. Fish filleted on the ride back. All in all, a great time.
The Captain, Larry and Zach made it a very memorable and enjoyable time! For our group of 8, we all agreed this was the best charter experience any of us had ever had off of the waters off of Florida! Great Job! We will be back!
Had a great time.
All the employees were very friendly and very helpful. They made the trip and exciting trip to take and I have finals.
