My son and I visited Thailand to celebrate his graduation. We joined my brother who lives there and spent 3 days in Phuket as part of the trip.

My son wanted to fish while there and so we were lucky to find Captain Zow and Queen Marlin. The Captain was personable, laid back, and friendly. We fished all morning, stopped to snorkel and have (an excellent Thai) lunch at a completely deserted cove, and continued fishing in the afternoon, all while getting a tour of the stunning scenery around Phuket.

We caught about 6 Spanish Mackerel, one of which we had sashimi-style on board, and another prepared Thai style by Captain Zow’s wife at their restaurant, The Ship Inn.

All in all, I highly recommend this boat and this captain… this day was a highlight of our trip to Thailand.
