Miguel our skipper was very helpful if not stern at the beginning which certainly kept the 3 kids inline. Good precise instructions when starting out and sure enough, no accidents, tangled lines or tears.
Everybody caught plenty of fish and education from skipper along the way
Highly recommend but skipper, get the beers out a bit more for the dads!!

This was a great day that saw the kids (7 and 11) catch a variety of fish with relative ease!  Lead to a dinner full of fresh fish thatvthe kids had a hand in catching! Overall a great day and we will be back next year!

The sea was too rough to go out far, so we were asked if we would prefer ‘river fishing’. As it was our last day we agreed. It was more ‘fishing at the mouth of the harbour’ with people fishing off the rocks 20 meters from us.
I would hope the actual sea fishing would be better. If you are told it’s too rough, then I wouldn’t bother going at all, and wait until the sea calms down. Everything else was adequate.
