Captain Moe's Lucky Fleet reviews
The Key West Luck Charm Captain passes a woman caught in a riptide. He called her a name and kept going. The coastguard was furious when they rescued her. He is an unsafe captain and not recommended..... more »
My husband, 3 adult sons and a close friend went out on an 4 hour afternoon deep sea fishing excursion. The water was choppy so everyone was a bit apprehensive. They caught a barracuda and pulled... more »
We talked to Moe’s about booking a deep sea fishing trip when we were in Key West. It was windy that day, 20-25 mph winds, so they recommended we wait for two days. We made a reservation for the morning of the 3rd day for a 4-hour trip, 6 adults, $600. We got up to go and my husband said that it was windier than the day we booked, weather channel said 26 mph. I told him I wouldn’t worry, they would let us know if it was too bad. When we got there my husband asked about the wind, they laughed and said “it will be a little sporty”. We didn’t get any instructions, safety or otherwise, and no life jackets. It was rough in the bay, when we got to the open ocean it was ridiculous. We couldn’t move, only hold on to our seats. The guy that was supposed to put lines in the water was getting thrown all over. The first time he fell down, he looked at us and said, “I’ve never done that before”. He barely got two lines in, they crossed and snapped off. He never got two lines in at once again, I’m not sure he had one line in. He fell again, the poor guy was getting beat to death! By this time, 3 of our group were throwing up and one was sobbing. 2 of these had been deep sea fishing many times. Even if we got a bite, no one could’ve made it to the chair to take it. We told them to take us back in. We were out a total of 2 hours. Only 1/2 hour was trying to get lines out, the other 1 1/2 hours were taking us in and out. We got back and started getting out. The captain came down and said “that’ll be $700”. (Not the $600 we were quoted) We paid the $700. (most of our group were looking for bathrooms) As we turned to leave the Captain yelled, “aren’t you going to tip my man?”. If he was honest, he wouldn’t have taken us out to begin with. They couldn’t even get fishing lines in the water! Plus, we paid $100 more than we were quoted! NEVER trust these people! .......in reply: The review was written after getting home from an extended winter trip that started with Key West and ended in St Maarten, when all my reviews were submitted. FYI, this was the only negative one. YOU are supposed to be the experts, we count on you to keep us safe. The Captain and crew were laughing when they said it would be “sporty”, so we felt like they knew what they were doing. Your employees quoted $600 when we asked about deep sea fishing. Seasickness is NOT your problem. Taking us out in dangerous conditions is.
We had a blast out with our boys! They absolutely loved everything we got to see and fishing in the ocean for their first time was perfect with the help and patients of the crew! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM and we will be going back!
