What Our Customers Are Saying
We had a great time on our trip! These guys know where to catch fish and how to have fun! We will definitely be back!
We booked a 1/2 trip with these guys and it was the best trip we have been on in Destin. We have had numerous trips in Destin over the years but this one was hands down the best. The first mate Zack was patient with our group of 7 and we have never had someone that organized us where we did not get our lines crossed up all day! He gave us the right directions at the right time and kept us baited and fishing while helping get our fish in. Top notch guy. Captain Phillip put us on the fish and knew when to pick up and move to a new spot every time. We caught our limit in snapper before the time was up then moved to grouper and even hooked a large shark. When we returned to the dock we had considerably more fish than any boat around us and several large ones as well. On the way in, Phillip let us sit up in the wheelhouse with him and get the view from there. He also let us climb up and get a view from the third level of the boat where we got some great pictures. There is no telling how many pounds of snapper filets we took home. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend the Backdown2 for a fishing trip and it will be the boat we book again.
Fished a 6 hour trip with Captain Philips on the Backdown2. There were 6 of us. The boat was plenty big for more. Everyone caught limit, plus a grouper. A+ experience.
On a side note, we had a billing issue that he took care of immediately. Everyone has issues from time to time, but how you handle them is what separates the good from the bad. I’d recommend Backdown2 every time.
