We did not catch many fish but we had a great time. Juan was super nice and very helpful. We actually caught a shark but had to release it. It was amazing!
We would definitely go again but I would recommend the eight hour trip.

Excellent trip, excellent crew.  The deckhand was awesome as well.  Very friendly and knowledgeable.  Will most definitely go with them again in the future.
