We were fishing within 5 minutes from marina. Captain and mate were great with my kids. We caught 5 mahi and they cleaned and packaged them for us. Just got home and had some great fish tacos.

Fishing was fantastic! Had two fish on the boat within the first 10 minutes. The highlight of the trip was 3 fish on the line at one time. Boat and crew were fantastic. The only reason I rated an overall of 4 was the ocean was very rough but, that is out of the hands of the crew. If not for hat issue this would have been a very easy 5 star day. Great job!!

We had a group of 4 fishing on the Barbie, perfect amount of people on the boat so not overcrowded. Crew was fantastic and Jose busted his tail taking care of getting us set, as well as going out of his way to keep us comfortable. Fishing was really good and we caught 4 small mahi’s and 2 large mahi’s and a sailfish. Much recommended for boat and crew.
