Description

Chris Magro owns and operates a 30 foot fast cruiser “JAKE”.

Chris together with his Father Frankie and another skipper, Jamie, operates these fishing trips with great love for the open sea. They have been in this trade since 1970 and still love their hobby which they’ve turned into their job.

Jamie is also an ex commercial fisherman who joined them a few years ago and his experience has been added to the team.

Jake is a very fast cruiser and can reach offshore fishing grounds in no time, thus allowing more fishing hours.

That was my first time at the sea for all four of us. I had only freshwater fishing experience.

I have gotten seasick at the open water, so we had to go to the crystal lagoon to get me well.

The captain was polite and friendly, everything was provided as advertised.

Dear Daniel,

Many thanks for your review.  Sure the open sea is not always calm and especially when you stop to fish on the bottom the boat will rock and roll even in calm waters.

Jamie told me that you still got some nice fish which you released again.  I am sorry to hear that you felt seasick but glad that the skipper did his best to help you out.

Many thanks again for coming on our boat and just an advise, if you are not so good at sea, try trolling, that is fishing with a long line behind the boat which does not stop but keeps going.  This way it is more probable that you do not get sea sick.

Wish you all the very best and thanks again.

Frankie

Most of us has not been fishing before. The captain showed us what to do, we caught several small fish. We then had a trip to the caves, the crystal lagoon and the blue lagoon and swam in the sea. It was a wonderful experience and the captain was great.
