The captain was very professional in setting up the bait and fishing rods. They were very good in spotting the birds and try to get us close to the fishing areas. We only had to do is to bring the fish in. In general we were looked after by the crew. I would recommend that one should ask if you can play a bit more when you have the fish on the line (letting it run and bringing it in) just to get a better feeling of the fight. And lastly for the novices - it is important to take your sea sickness pills before you go.

We were picked up from our hotel at 6:30am by our captain, Jean, and on the water by 7:00am. We caught 8 tuna of a good size (yellow fin and skipjack). The boat and crew were very good. Good value
