Very poor experience. The business owner gave the wrong departure time, the boat left the harbour before a dad and his 8 year old boy arrived on time. Tears and disappointment the result. No customer service. Not worth the risk.

The skipper left early believing all the days fares had arrived. We sincerely regret that the last two persons were not missed. The "No customer service" comment is very unfair as Endo was offered compensation with our apologies for this oversight.

All gear and tackle is supplied free of charge. Just dress for the day's weather, and if it rains there is always the comfort of the heated cabin. For more details see the FAQs page on the website.
