The perfect fishing trip. We caught a 108kg tuna on day 1 then bagged out on the last day. Steve and Jason were great. Everything was organised for us including accommodation. We have already booked the next trip.

Hi Phil, great review. keep them coming!

The crew got us onto the fish, with good gear and great bait. They do most of the work, which avoids tangled lines (and is fine for a 4 hour charter). All 5 of us caught a snapper (4 were over 2').

Paid for 5 hrs and lost 45 mins because the owner had to re fuel. No discount offered and we didn't get a fishing experience. Basically paid to sit and watch the owner fish.Very poor customer service.Never again.More
