Freddie and Keith would both amazing to our party of 6. We all ended up catching something with some having multiple catches. They explained everything to us and helped us when we needed it especially the children. I would recommend to all. Great first time experience and we will definitely book them again.

Best fishing trip ever.  In two hours we pulled in around 80 fish, 27 were keepers.  Mostly sea bass, trigger fish and tuna.  Captain Freddie and his crew Keith are very knowledgeable making the trip very enjoyable. Once back at the dock they cleaned and packed the fish for us.  They recommended we bring the fish to “Outriggers Restaurant” which we did.  It was amazing how they prepared the fish, best ever..
