Brought my 9 year old along for a fishing trip and the mates and Captain at Swoop went out of their way to ensure he had a great time. The boat was fast so we had more fishing time and the mates are super helpful and funny. We plan on going out with these guys again and highly recommend them! more »

Went on an 8hr trip with Swoop. Had a great time. We caught a bunch of fish at every stop. If you take a trip with Swoop, you need to understand that they are trying to keep 30-50 people happy, and fishing nonstop....and when you are all catching fish, you need to be patient. First things: Sunblock! 2: take a spare rag with you to wipe your hands. 3: Do not wear good shoes or clothes. Starting the trip, the boat left promptly and we headed out. The rigs were all set up, and waiting. When we got close to the first spot, they explained to us how to use the reels, and how to fish. Within seconds of our lines hitting the water, we were pulling in triggerfish(out of season). Since that was the only thing we were catching, we moved on. The next spot, we immediately started nailing Vermillion Snapper(mingo's). After getting invaded by dolphins, we had to move on. Apparently, dolphins are lazy and want you to catch their breakfast. On to the next stop, more of the same. We did run into a spot where a few of us caught some nice Mahi Mahi and king mackerel. The ride back in was looooong. Music would help here. When they get back, you need to tip. They will be cleaning your fish for you, although, you may need to clean some bones out when you get home. I suggest going to Deweys Destin to have your fish cooked for you. more »

First time with a fishing charter in Destin. We had a party of four, my husband and I, plus our two teenage boys. Great day!! Nick was very attentive and made sure we all had a great experience. We were so impressed with how hard all the guys worked to make sure everyone was happy. Well worth the money. Emerald Grande guests get a nice discount if you provide them with a room number. And you can walk next door to AJ's and have them cook up your catch. We will definitely book with Swoop again. more »

We just got off the docks, and had the greatest experience. Captain Mark Tilden was awesome. Ed Doubleday, and his son Dylan were awesome! Marcus, thanks so much for letting our kids ride with us to the slip. Dylan baited and snagged a tiger shark and gave my husband Benjamin the pole to reel. He, along with help from the crew and two other passengers got the shark! 170 after gutting, so about 210 when caught! We caught enough vermilion snapper to have dinner ourselves and share with others! I highly recommend this boat and crew! We will definitely return! Thanks crew for your awesomeness! Pictures coming as soon as I charge my battery.� more »

My family has been going on the Swoop for 5 years now and I can say we could not be happier. My son is 9 and this is the highlight of his year. They take such good care of everyone but always make the kids feel special. When the boat gets backed in the the fishing rodeo it makes everybody's day. A big thank you to the captains and crew of the Swoop and the Swoop II but a special thank you to Nick Price! This guy goes above and beyond to make sure everyone has a safe and memorable trip! See you in June for some red snapper Captain Nick! Get em' son! more »

The best!
WE WILL BE MAKONG THE SWOOP A TRADITION EVERY YEAR! The experience could not have been any better. The captain was friendly and helpful, going to 5-6 different spots so everyone on the
boat could catch fish! The deck hands were incredibly helpful and friendly-- they made the whole trip!! They let us help reel in King mackorol and then keep it to eat!! It was an incredible experience and we caught a ton of fish. Then they filet your fish for free once you're done! They even took the kids on the boat to weigh in the big catches of the day and win prizes. Please tip the deck hands well, they more than deserve it!! Bring your kids, some cold crispy ones, and cash! 10/10 would go again, but only on the swoop!! more »

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.
