Good shrimp

Great way to spend a few hours to learn how shrimp trawling works. Small company feel. Enjoyed 2 pounds of the freshest local shrimp ever. They helped peel and devein the shrimp for easy cooking. Wish I could get fresh shrimp like that weekly

Cool idea - not a big catch :(

What a fun experience. Spike (the Captain) wasn't very friendly but thankful the first Mate Kayla (????) was.....She did all the talking and explained many things about the entire process of shrimping and the eco system. Very Knowledgeable. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of shrimp on this tour but it was still interesting. Lots of work on their part. Glad I experienced but will not do it again. If you have never been try it just for the experience.

This trip exceeded my expectations! Very fun and educational. Also, everyone wore masks and we felt like it was a safe outing despite the pandemic. I was a little worried about getting seasick but I didn't even come close! The trip was relaxing. We didn't catch a lot of shrimp, maybe 15 pounds but that was fine. Caught tiny flounder, crabs and jellyfish too! Fun to see.

We took this tour yesterday morning and it was great. The boat and crew were excellent and it was very interesting to see how they fish for shrimp. Just like Bubba Gump!!

With the various options in HHI, we could NOT have been happier that we chose this one to go on!! The crew was engaging, personable & esp. knowledgeable, which helped make the experience! During the excursion, we learned about the process of shrimping and also learned several fun facts about various sea creatures, etc. To be able to be on a boat for a couple of hours, learn new things, and walk away with fresh shrimp...the entire trip was what you would want when booking an excursion.

We ended up taking the trip 2 days later due to a problem with the boat, but it was worth the wait. First mate Lauren made it a really fun and interesting trip, and Captain Spike was friendly as well. We had a good haul as well - left with a few pounds of fresh shrimp.

We had a great time. We learned about shrimping, saw dolphins frolicking, ate shrimp sushi and took shrimp back to condo for lunch the following day. Well worth the price. Great memories.
