The captains and crew were awesome.  The boat was nice and the weather was beautiful.  Unfortunately we were only able to catch one small barracuda.  Seas were a little too calm for the big fish.  I was very pleased with the trip as a whole.  The crew did all they could to put us on a fish.  I would go back to them for another try.

This is a private charter.  Only your party will be aboard.

Pick up on time at our hotel (Sirenis Punta Cana) by the owner.  Shuttled to the beach, then a boat shuttle to the our 42’ vessel, and off.

4 hours, 3ft waves, I was fine but friend was nauseas.  Caught one small barracuda.  Unlucky fishing day. but a nice cruise with a great crew.  This is not for the faint of stomach. 

Kudos to this vessel.  Great for first timers and up.
