I needed a fishing guide with patience to provide one special young man with his first fishing trip. Joe and his deckhand John delivered in spades. Tommy caught a truck load of fish, Mum was delighted and we all had a tremendous day. I highly recommend Joe for his family fishing trips. Anthony

Had a great day out on the water with Joe & crew. The boat was clean and comfortable, all the equipment well maintained. Joe took us to several spots around the bay and in the ocean where we caught lots of flat head, King George whiting and coral fish. All off which gutted and packed up for us to take home. Even seen some dolphins on the way back in to Sorrento which topped off a brilliant afternoon. We will be back, thanks!

Hi Amy, Joe and I are really pleased you enjoyed your trip. The dolphins are pretty special aren't they! They visit us from time to time, it's always a nice bonus to top off a charter! See you again soon. Em and Joe

It was easy to see that Joe knows his stuff and is also a very personable character. Looking forward to heading out with him once again in the near future! Good times guaranteed as well as a good feed.

Thanks for taking the time to write up your review, really appreciated! There's nothing better than fresh fish is there (especially when you're the one who caught it). All the very best, thanks again. Em and Joe

Great skipper and crew. Had very good shimano reels for the jigging setups and nicely balanced outfits for the small stuff. We couldn't get out to the kingfish due to the weather although we did try jigging for them in the bay. Lost count of species we had inshore. Baby snapper, trevally, parrot fish, triggers, red mullet, whiting, banjo shark and loads of squid! Plenty of sizeables for the bbq. I highly recommend Joe. No problem when we asked him to motor all the way back to a spot we tried previously. Happy to chase the bite. And great banter! UK skippers take note!
