Everything was perfect, and the memories will last a life time.  The girls learned things and did things that they never thought they would.

The communications and set up was great and easy.  Everything happened on time. 

We even took the fish back to the villa and cooked it - which made the experience last a lot longer than just an afternoons fishing.

We were a group of 7 and there were 2 crew members to help us with everything. The boat is great, and the trip out to sea was great fun.  We could have gone swimming in the sea after fishing but the girls all wanted to get home and cook their fish.

Thank you for a fantastic day.

I highly recommend Alvor Fishing Donzela

Only negative is the crew smoked which wasn’t great for sea sickness feeling or the kids.
