She isn’t just about the fishing, though. The vessel also has plenty of comfortable deck space, as well well as a head for extra comfort on longer days out. On each trip, you will be provided with a selection of cold drinks, and you can have your catch served up as ceviche for the freshest meal imaginable.

So whether you are snorkeling around colorful reefs, chasing monster Marlin offshore, or just lying back with a beer on a secluded beach, you will know you have come to the right place when you book with Fishing Are Us.
