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.
I will be back. I was treated very well .
The crew were very respectful and helpful. I would recommend them and will return again.
Very friendly and helpful mate. Clean spacious boat. Didn't expect much as we never got out of site of land, but it was an enjoyable trip as the Capt. put us on fish and moved to multiple places when the bite started to die down.
Couldn't of had a better time. Captain Jay and Larry were the best.
Great crew, helpful, patient
We had a group of 15 guys, and we all caught a lot of fish. It was one of the best half day trips we have been to. We had guys who never fished before, and they wanna do it again. In total we caught about 100 keepers. Larry the mate was great and took care of us immediately the captain new the spots, where the fish were at. Thank you guys for a great fishing trip. Will do it again and again.
awesome event......had to throw back fish....we caught more than we could eat .
Perfect for what we were looking for.
Those running the boat really knew what they were doing, and there were some generous passengers that helped with my catch.
Larry was a very helpful hand on our trip. Good clean jokes too. Thanks for making our trip the best.
Great experience! The boat staff was excellent! They fillet our fish on the way back to shore. the boat is very smooth, and they took us out over a reef. we tried catching sharks, but they weren't out that day.
Had a great time will do this again.
Larry, Captain Jay, and Carson were great!!
Larry was a great guide and the whole experience was great.
We had a great time on the half day trip. The crew was extremely helpful. It was the first time my sons had ever been fishing and they had a wonderful time.
My Husband and I went out for a half-day excursion and had a great time. The crew was so accommodating & super sweet. They made every one comfortable and made sure no one returned empty handed from the trip. They were extremely knowledgeable regarding the great fishing spots and did not hesitate to move forward if we hit a slow spot. I'd definitely recommend this trip for all ages. The Captain was even kind enough to stay out a little longer than usual to enhance our experience. Hands down well worth the price and excellent treatment from all of the staff!!! They even took pictures of our catch & us to download to Facebook for memories. I've been on several fishing trips and this was a first. We will hands down go back again for the excellent service we were provided.
Captain Jay and Larry were awesome. We had a blast! Well worth the cost of admission! Will be scheduling again as family comes to visit!
Besides the sweltering heat, my fishing experience was the absolute best. Carter and I thought Larry ("deckhand") knowledgeable, helpful, and personable; and the other anglers were equally great. My grandson and I had an enjoyable day and would absolutely book with Gulfstar Fishing for our next Florida fishing excursion. Thank you!!!
Captain and mate were great, informative, and helpful. For a half day trip can't complain at all. 12 people aboard, 175 fish kept. Fun day is all there is beautiful views, great to watch the dolphins chase and race the ship also.
This was my 1st time out in open water to fish, which I am not good at! The guys that took us out that day were very attentive and there to help me and the others. I definitely will be back. This was a good promise fishing day that made my moms trip to Florida a special trip! Thank you!
Captain and Larry are great! Looking forward to booking a bigger trip next time.
Frendly help,great service,caught fish
All the crew members were amazingly helpful! The only downfall was three out of our group of seven were miserable with sea sickness and we're not able to fish so we didn't catch as many as we could. You were recommended by a coworker and we recommend you as well Thank you!
You all were wonderful with my austic grandson. I appreciate all the care you gave him. Thank You.
The (1) hour we fished was great! Staff was also great! The (2) hour boat ride each way was a bit much with the extremely hot weather. Overall, I really like the boat staff, they did a great job of making you comfortable with them and taking care of the guests. - Kelly Burns
Great day of fishing, excellent Captain and crew. They made sure that everyone that wanted to, caught fish. The Captain even kept us out for an extra hour to fish and no one complained. We will fish with them again in the fall. Highly recommended.
Fishing spots weren't crew was great! The fishing spots were not the best. Have had better fishing on other charters.
