We had 2 offshore trips planned that were canceled twice due to weather. Capt. Gregg, Capt. Taylor, John and Javier took us out to the Jetties and definitely made up for the cancelation. Nice people, we felt like we were fishing with family. Would highly recommend them. We will be back soon!!

Nice boats but wouldn't choose them over other charters because they cost more than others and we didn't catch anything I know striking out happens but other charters offer discounted return trip in the event of a bad day fishing wave dancer charters did not

Had an epic time aboard the Wave Dancer today! 3 of us fishing with John working the deck like a mad-man, and Captain Greg putting us the fish. Currents were hurting the bottom fish but whacked em' on top! Very proud of my 55" King. Broke off on a monster Cobia. Excellent time and great guys. Will definitely be recommending. Thanks.

I have been out with Captain Greg and Captain Taylor. Awesome people and they know where the fish are. There is a reason these two Captains are voted The Best Charter in Galveston.

Capt. Travis and Travis were some stand up guys. They made it an experience and it was obvious they were the superiors around here. They were down to earth and made it feel like they were on vacation with us. Made it like we were fishing with friends. We reached limit on two different fish, caught fish all day long, and they were above average size fish. Capt. Greg gave us incredible prices on the last day of snapper season. We will never step on another charter and plan on making this a family tradition. Don't sell yourself short by going with others, wave dancers is exactly what you're looking for.
