Great boats, fished both locations. My girlfriends and I go out all the time and catch lots of fish. The best part is they do everything bait your hook, take off your fish, and fillet. Lots of fun for everybody and you don't have to be a professional!!!

I took my 2 children on the boat and it is NOT a family atmosphere. The other fishermen & crew dropped the F bomb constantly. Spend a few more bucks and go with a professional crew on a smal charter. Plus, no one caught a thing!!

I strongly disagree. I fish on the boat regularly and have always witnessed the captain and crew putting an immediate stop to any and all use of the F bomb. I will continue to go on the boat and fish with an extremely experienced crew!!!

ok Randy, which of the "professional" boats are you trying to steer business to? I have fished this boat numerous times and the crew jumps on the few that do use language. seems you may have an agenda.

Too many people and not enough mates. The mates work hard but when your packed in like sardines the only thing they have time for is untangling lines. About half the time that's what your doing. The trip out took 50 minutes, not 20. The only thing bitting on this trip was bonita. To their credit the only person hurling f bombs was a mom with her brude. Oh well, live and learn, on to better things.

Very disappointed. I normally fish on the Sea Mist out of Boynton, but I thought I'd drive all the way to Jupiter and try Blue Heron. Especially since NWS reported the western wall of the Gulfstream only 3 miles off Jupiter Inlet. However, when I got there, they told me there would be no afternoon trip due to ground swell and encouraged me to go down to their Riviera location. When I got there, they refused to go out because there were 10 of us and they needed a minimum of 12. While I understand the reasoning, after your sister ship tells its customers to drive 20 miles south because of technical difficulties, you better be accomodating to those customers. Very disappointed...I'll be going back to the Sea Mist, thank you.

Very disappointed crew was very rude .. they kicked my wife's fish over the boat and did not even bother to apologize. And then told her to stop whining about her fish which would have been the pool winner . On top of their horrible services they were disappointed when we "only" gave the a 15$ tip according to the crew the fish filets go in order from high tip to low tip which is extremely rude and unprofessional. I live in Jupiter and next time i will drive to boynton to fish.

Blue heron is a garbage cattle boat. And by the way ppl, the Rivera boats fish the same ledge that the Jupiter boat does. It's a sham. And if you were out on the water on a regular basis then you would know the blue heron is the most hated boat out there because the captains are assholes and drop right on everyone else.

Im on the boat right now and there are way to many people. Everyone is tangled up all the time. All anyone is catching is inedible Bonita. So far the crew seems ok but they have no time for you because they are untangling lines all the time. I will never use blue heron again. Not worth your time.

Ive fished many boats on the east coast and this business is top notch! If u don't believe it try other boats! They have three big party boats for a reason and it's not from screwing people! If u thought it was too crowded maybe your shouldn't go durring the weekend or holiday! Just like the mall! They know are extremely experienced and above others ! As far as bonitos, if u go in the spring and fall bonitos are slim but the snappers cobia banded rudder fish kingfish and many other good eating fish will be biting! Every boat south of port st lucy will catch bonitos in the summer months! With my experience with fishing charter and party boats, if your rude to the crew they will put u in your place! Try blue heron riviera or Jupiter they are pros

u sound like a local that follows them around! Why go out on a busy boat then complain like u didn't know what would happen! How's the black dog when he has 15 on that little boat?

Very disappointing. Rude Crew, 1 hour ride out, moved 3 times, 45 minutes back- 4 hour "fishing tour," an hour and 45 fishing. 40 lines off 1 side of the boat! Never heard of such of a thing- crossed lines and a crew that wont let you touch your line. Have been fishing for many years and never had such a miserable trip. Crew talking about customers on board, then proceeded to ask for a tip at end of cruise. Forget it!!! Never again with this charter or any affiliates.

spent good money-$135.00 with high expectations for a pleasurable fishing experience with my son and young nephew while visiting family here in FL. I am an avid fisherman, not a novice, but the crew and captain of the Heron 2 left me with an experience I will never forget. They insisted to do EVERYTHING with rods,including my own personal gear! They actually REMOVED my bait which I purchased ahead of time (mullet)and brought to use and put on their sardines!(can't make this crap up!)I put my own back on and got remarks about "people from up north".The system of one-side fishing with 45 people and no bow or stern (front or back) fishing was absolutely ridiculous!Elbow bumping the entire time and honestly so many multiple line-crossings that I eventually just quit fishing and sat down in disgust.Only three fish were actually caught with most of the "FOUR HOUR FISHING" spent driving around smelling diesel. It was the worst experience I have ever had in my 56 years of numerous excursions. Very little actual fishing time with snide remarks made from crew who actually requested a TIP at the end of the trip. To the crew and captain of the Heron...Here is your tip, don't play in the street.

. Thank you Christina and John the ledge starts in palm beach where they go out of and depending in whether it is a north or a south current they will stop half way down towards jupiter and drift north or back down south the ledge runs for 18 miles I don't think they try to drop in on anybody I think other people follow them around everybody is just trying to make a living

Can't wait to go tomorrow so excited they always catch fish and sure it is comical they ring a bell and say don't everybody drop at once and everyone who drops gets tangeled. There are always fish to be caught and the crew makes it fun by saying funny things. You have to be lucky to catch a dolphin or Cobia but that's why you fish you never know what you will pull up. The visitors from up north are assholes ordering mates and other fishermen around they should charge them more for being such fucksticks. One guy told me to get out of his way point blank and when I was walking a fish down I asked him if he could hold his rod up and he said why should I. What a cock. The guy also yelled at the captain on the bridge to come down and unhook his fish and the captain said why don't you come up here an blow me. Good for the captain.
