We had a great time fishing with Captain Shane. He was super patient with us and helped us with what we needed. We loved seeing all the dolphins and all had a chance to reel in a good sized fish! The highlight of the trip!

Must do fishing trip! Great captain and mate… very experienced and made our grandsons feel important and taught them as they fished! We caught a wide variety of fish… and they filleted the fish for us. We made it back in our VRBO, so good! Must do while in Galveston!

Nicely remodeled place! This is a great place to stay. The suites are new and updated and beautiful! It is about a 10 minute walk to Cruz bay or a short taxi ride. The shower was lovely and the bed was so comfy! The kitchen is a nice touch as well!

We did the sunset cruise and had a wonderful time. Captain Theron treated us so well and was a consummate professional. Highly recommended if you're looking for a nice evening on the water!

The guys absolutely loved the fishing trip. They got along well with Captain Shane and deckhand. Both were very professional and knowledgeable about areas to go to in the Bay. I have to mention I booked with Captain Shane very last minute because another charter was not able to accommodate my already planned and partially paid trip due to motor issues(which is a common reason given). Thank Captain Shane for taking my guys and dad out last minute. FYI mornings are preferable and recommended during the summer months.

Captain Shane and his deck hand, Ryan provided our party of 6 great half day of bay and jetty fishing. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and put us on fish! No one had to wait long to keep their pole in the water and take fish off. Everyone caught fish and 4 sharks 🦈. Thank you for a great experience!

Our Experience was a family trip with a 5 & 7 year old boys and my parents, there was 6 of us. We first went to the bay and caught our bait. All of us were catching left and right! Then went out to the end of the jetties to try to catch some big fish. Our 7 year old only talked about wanting to catch a shark, however we did not catch any big fish (I’m sure due to the weather, there was several storms in the gulf) we did manage to hook a 4 1/2- 5 foot shark! We also Saw tons of dolphins. We will definitely book with Galveston Sea Adventures going forward every time we go to Galveston!

We just finished up a 4 hour fishing charter with Captain Shane and Douglas and we had an amazing time!! We are a family of four (2 adults and two boys 7 & 10). Our boys had such a great time. Each of us caught 3 sharks a piece and redfish. We would highly recommend this charter service and plan to come again in October.

Really great trip for a family with a 6 year old boy. Our captain was very helpful and we were able to catch small fish, shark, and see dolphins all within 2.5 hours. Would go again in the future!

Me and a group of friends go deep sea fishing every year, this was the first time doing a private charter and let me just say we will definitely be coming back. They were helpful friendly and couldn’t ask for more also drove through a huge storm and made sure we were comfortable before heading out.

What a wonderful time on the water!! Worth every penny! Our family had a great time! Our boys are 7, 5, and 3 and were never bored. We all loved seeing the dolphins, catching fish, and finally the sunset was BEAUTIFUL!! Captain Shane answered all our questions, even the silly ones for our boys, and was aware of little things, like making sure the boys had something to wipe their hands after handling their fish. His new assistant, Billy, was so kind with our children as well, carefully helping with casting and explaining things, he was also quick to rebait our lines as well, and getting the net to quickly take care of caught fish. Captain Shane, let us know when we would be moving a few minutes in advance, which was appreciated with small children! We had one moment where we had a couple of us reeling in fish at the same time and Captain Shane handled it effortlessly! Captain Shane will clean and bag your fish if you’re wanting to take them home. We got a day fishing license at the marina before we met him for our trip out, it only took about 5-10min. Another exciting moment was when pulling into dock at the end of the night, the slip has the coolest green underwater light!! my boys enjoyed seeing the fish swimming through the water at night!
