The word on the street from our customers
"The ride out was great, the water was clear and beautiful good visibility 5 to 6ft depth my estimate. The Crew was very helpful and Capt. Victor and Deck hand Josiah worked hard to provide a excellent experience for the anglers on board. They we're very helpful when bringing in your catch. They both did an Awesome job, multiple people we're hooking up at the same time and they did well helping anglers bring up their Red Snapper. Its nessasary to be patient and n remember to call out fish on when you hook up so they can help you with your catch n call out color when you see it. If it's your 1st time going offshore it may be a good idea to pickup some motion sickness pills. I took them the night before and I felt 👍great. I enjoyed the experience and adventure being out on the water.Good Times🙂. I would definitely recommend Capt. Murphy's to a coworker, friend or family member.Thanks again Capt. Victor and Josiah looking forward to fishing with you guys soon"CowboyRick369
"Arrived a few minutes early, warmly greeted and given tons of info. The deck hands loaded us and gave more info and advice. The boat was seaworthy and the captain was great! As a novice fisherman I was given extra attention! We all caught plenty of fish which was then fileted upon return to the dock fir a small fee. The crew suggested a lunch spot (great place....see review) as well as a supper spot that would cook and serve your catch! Great time!"seanmcc
"Captain Mike and his crew Easten and Jennifer were awesome. This was our first time to take the Port of Brownsville tour and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The Texas Gold Shrimp snack that was served to us by Jennifer and Easten was yummy!! Captain Michael was knowledgeable and funny. Recommend this boat tour to everyone."Bob and Nivia Knox
"We had a blast out out on the water with Patrick and Jennifer. We saw so dolphins, a shark, and even some crazy big fish. We tore up the waters that afternoon and got off the boat feeling satisfied. I highly recommend and is a must if you are in SPI."Chris C.
