We had a great time on our trip with Papa Pip´s 36´´Bruel Express!
The Skipper and his mate Carl were great fun, very experienced and we found lots of fish from Snapper to Sharks!
I was out there with my 15y.o. son and he absolutely loved it!
He caught many Snappers, Bluerunners and in the end even a Barracuda on his own!
We will definitely come back and do it again!
Thank you for the wonderful trip!
