We've done it twice. Had a great time the first time. Second time was a little rough and two of us got a little seasick.

They do an awesome job - fish are small, but plentiful. First time we had to get the fish in quick before the sharks got them. That made for some good pics.

They will try to catch a shark at the end, but just one person gets to do that and we weren't chosen either time.

How many go on the boat? Was it long?

About 10 folks plus the captain & first mate. Lasted a couple of hours 2-3.

My son wants to do it again this summer - but we may take a break. We've been doing the double dip cruises - this year only one stop at Castaway Cay .

Husband and son went fishing in December. Had a great time and plan on doing it again. My son did catch a shark. He had a blast!

Husband enjoyed it much more than the private fishing excursion in Cozumel (even though they really liked that one too).

My husband and son (17) did this and they caught the smaller fish and said they fought hard and they each also caught about a 6' shark.

They LOVED it!
