We were not sure if we went with the company that we had booked. The captain was not named Mike. The people who took us out were very good at what they did but I got the feeling that when they saw us waiting they got us out of there very quickly . I showed them the paper I had that said we were to pay the balance and could use visa or cash. They said only cash and then called his boss and the boss said visa was ok. When we got back the boss was waiting and said hw e would take us to bank so he could get money from visa. We told him he could take us to our hotel and we would get cash.  It just didnt feel right.  We paid them but then wondered if they were really your employees or if they had been taken by other people.  We cant remember their names….  We got the fishing trip and paid the price we expected… I was just afraid that maybe your boat came later and we were going find another charge on our visa.  Please respond . Thank you
