The capitan made this trip.  He ensured everyone on the boat had a great day.  He knew exactly where to go and under what conditions to catch our target fish. On the way back, he went out of his way to bring us in range to observe a pod of whales.  He exceeded expectations.  I will definitely book again with HaTuna.

I could not have had a more enjoyable experience From start to finish it was a perfect day.  Boat is totally safe and having a U S Coast Guard service member as your Captain even better We had great conversations, he shared with me all his navigation and electronic equipment and we certainly found fish as well.  Caught a couple of Flounder but the were not biting much de he moved to catch Sea Bass which we caught lots of and it was also fun to catch a few shark for a fun fight, I can say that if you want to have fun, catch fish and are safe on the water book here.

Chris is a very personable young man, seems to be very ambitious. His boat was fun, clean and in good shape. I am sure that has to do with him being a boatswains mate in the Coast Guard. Despite his best efforts the fish were just not biting yesterday, we couldn’t even get them to hit on an umbrella rig with grass eels as lures. My niece & I still have a very good time.

Thanks for the kind words Barbara! It was so great to meet you and your niece. Despite the fish not wanting to eat, it was a beautiful day on the water. I look forward to having the opportunity to fish with you again.
