Weather was lovely, even managed to see some dolphins. Sadly no fish caught, crew tried very hard to get a bite. Maybe next time.

Out of marlin season, crew and boat excellent, we only caught skipjack but that wasnt the crews fault, they tried everything to give us a good day, and we all had a good day. Highly recommended
