Rated 4 out of 5 by Stcam1975 Fun Trip
The trip was well organised with all the facilities and equipment needed. The skipper was on hand to give guidance and advice when required checking in to see everyone was doing ok. The boat was a good size and handled well in the difficult conditions. Would be interesting to go again during calmer conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Naquita The day was a complete bust
This experience was rescheduled 3 times and I had to wait over 5 months to be able to finally take this trip. When the day finally came the staff member was nearly 30 minutes late with no offer of an explanation and the weather was extremely poor fishing weather but the company insisted that it was fine enough to fish. The boat was cramped with 8 people aboard plus the staff member. The seas were very rough and we were barely able to fish. Out of the 8 people on my trip only 1 caught anything legal size to keep. Everyone else went home empty handed. We were offered a light snack on the boat but because we had to bait our own lines no one wanted to be handling food with bait covered hands. Overall the day was a bust and I certainly won't be going again. I catch bigger fish at my local on land fishing spot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MIller Could not wait for it to finish!!
This is the second 'deep sea' fishing experience that I have been on. I wont be doing another. This 'experience' was nothing short of a disaster. I am so glad I did not opt for the full day of fishing or I would have been tempted to jump overboard!
The captain was just an arrogant man who thought it would be best to insult people if they did not pick up on fishing techniques straight away. I heard him insult one guy asking him 'if he brought his brain along with him?'. The food and drink were discraceful, being a few bottles of water, plus some crackers and dip. By the time the trip was over #thank god# we were all starving. I dont think anyone caught a thing as we were constantly moving spot to spot to 'get the big catch'. As if!
Dont use this experience at all! Save your money and get a few mates and hire your own boat. Thanks to this guy I will never do another charter fishing trip again. You were warned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brazilnutz Could have been enjoyable, but wasn't...
The weather was great, the other passengers were as keen as we were, but the skipper was just not interested and I think he would rather have stayed in bed. He gave the safety briefing and we set out through the Seaway and on to the fishing area. He told us all how to use his gear, but insisted on belittling us all and asked questions as to whether we had fished before. From his tone, none of us were willing to answer his questions so we all shut up and let him carry on.
While fishing he told us he had set a floating bait and if the reel went off, any of us could pick it up. This happened and the fish was brought in and as it was too small, it was released. I started to re-bait the hook when the skipper yelled at me to "leave that rod alone, it is mine!" He came over and took the rod and pushed me away from it.
This was the last straw and I told him not to touch me again as it would constitute an assault. He said, "I can see you are a dangerous man!" I replied that I wasn't but I would not be treated this way. He then told everyone that he was going to head into port and put us ashore. He backed down from this threat when we pointed out that he had been treating us terribly all morning.
Also, the "morning tea" was not good at all. Some crackers, cream cheese and very bad kabana.
I expected better for the price. I knew we might not catch fish as that is the chance you take, but this skipper made the trip totally worthless.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brettie Something to look forward to
due to difficult weather conditions Bob contacted me early the day prior to departure and told me of the probability of not catching any thing.He has told me to contact him in the new year to arrange an alternate time. As we have spent a reasonable amount of money it is much appreciated so as we can enjoy a fruitful adventure.
