Would not recommend this trip ,
Was told this trip had been cancelled by the captain when we boarded the boat,as he,d booked a party of 20 ladies ,with no cancellation notice from fishing booker ,or Kilda charters ,the ladies we,re happy for us to join in fishing ,the captain was also happy to take our fee .
A BBQ lunch was included in the price which we did not partake in as busy fishing ,but tea/coffee was also included but at no time where we offered a cup of either .

Overall was good experience. The captain went through emergency procedures & took us to areas with more fishes once the catch slowed down. The only setback was there were too many people on the deck that could tangle your fishing rods & limit your catch. Sometimes you may experience loosing your hooks but the captain and his assistant will quickly get it fixed or give you the extra rods prepared earlier. The food provided was great but coffee & tea could have been served more than once.
The captain’s assistant looked quite agitated if he had to do a lot of things like fixing rods, untangling rods and getting people organised on deck.
