Had an amazing time and caught 11 fish! Captain and crew were extremely friendly. knowledgeable and helpful with the exception of 1 crew member that spoke to me like I was stupid and incapable on more then 1 occasion. I am a 57 yr old women that grew up on the water and have been fishing since I could hold a rod. Don't get me wrong I would absolutely go again and highly recommend you go too! more »

First time fishing the gulf on a party boat and it was a blast. My buddies (4 of us) all had a great time and the crew were helpful, funny and polite. I was sick as a dog for the first 2 hours but was called into action when the spinning reel they had with live bait started spooling out. They put me on the rod and for about 5 minutes I had the most fun fish fight of my entire life. I was forced to run behind 10 people to the back of the boat as the fish ran out but eventually pulled in a near 3 ft king mackerel. I was too sick to notice until after I got off the boat how big it was because I immediately tried to sit down after the fish was landed, but it took a lot of effort and was lots of fun.

The rest of the trip I resolved not to waste the trip even though I was about to chum the waters with my breakfast and continued fishing and caught 3 vermillion snapper the rest of the day. Fishing therapy also improved my stomach for the Tropical Storm Harvey churned waters. All of my friends also caught snapper of reasonable size. I don't know how, but luck was with me and I caught one of the biggest snapper in my group right as we were about to leave. I think I may have caught the big fish of the season according to the mates. If it isn't true I still had a blast and would do it again with copious amounts of Dramamine.

Swoop's guys are the best and I can't thank them enough for making my trip fun when I thought I was going to be sick all trip.

The photo has me on the far right with a brownie eating grin holding a mack someone else caught and my buddy on the far left holding my mackerel because I was feeling ill and weak still.

What a great boat and crew. The 3 mates were all very knowable about the the fish and how to catch them. The captain did a great job of moving the boat when the action slowed up. It was a great experience all around. more »

Shout out to Captain Nick, Joe and Ethan for an awesome trip out for my first time on a charter. The enthusiasm they had for everyone on board to catch a fish was pretty amazing. They encouraged everyone when reeling in was difficult or when folks were constantly feeding the fish and reeling up without a catch. Their knowledge of the fish that some caught was pretty impressive as well.
Prior to loading, Ethan let us know that there were 2-3ft swells and gave an option for a refund if anyone thought that they might get sick. All around good time and will go again when back in Destin.
PS... my group being from Texas, our captain had us when he started playing country while we were fishing.

We went for a 5 hour fishing trip on 8/7/17 and we had a blast.. my husband and I have been on several deep sea fishing trips and this was by far the best.. the guys knew everything they needed to know about the trip and they even filleted our fish at the end. Well worth the money!!! Will definitely be back !!!! :) more »

Being a first time open water guest, booking a private charter didn't seem to make sense, due to the cost - what if I didn't like it? The Swoop party cruise was much more cost effective because of the group size, and even though a larger group would seem like a detriment to catching fish, it was not - our group caught many fish. It's a fantastic value for the amount of fishing time you do get: one hour ride away from shore, 3 - 4 hours of fishing time, hour ride back.
I went solo on my trip, and going with a larger group was much more enjoyable. Many were casual fishermen just like me, but the staff was extremely helpful and they were the difference in making the trip so memorable. These guys know their stuff and will help make your deep sea excursion an unforgettable one.

We have been fishing with these guys since my son was a young boy. On a number of trips we have invited friends and family to come along because of all the positive experiences. Made a quick trip down again this summer before he starts his senior year of high school and went out once again. Another great experience and a good day of fishing. Each time we go we learn something new because the crew is so accommodating and eager to help you. Nick, Ed and Sean got us ready and worked the deck as hard and fast as they could when the action started. The boat captain knows where to find fish. This has to be the best offshore fishing value on the gulf. My son and I have developed a love of deep sea fishing because of Swoop & Swoop II. We will be back again. more »

This was my families 4th time going on Swoop. Always look forward to it and have a great time catching fish. This year we went had a great time except the language used and the deck hands smoking was a little disappointing. When you take kids on a trip like that you assume that this wouldn't happen in a family atmosphere. Unfortunately, this will be the last time we book with them. more »
