The boat and equipment was in excellent condition. Once on the boat the captain, Manuel explained what was biting and the area we would be fishing. They showed us all the equipment and bait we would be using for the trip. The first mate even let us assist with setting in the first lines. We caught several mahi-mahi and one wahoo. We had many other bites and fish lost so there was plenty of action throughout the day. Jose, the first mate went above and beyond what I would have expected to make sure we were having fun and he kept the lines baited with fresh bait throughout the trip. Overall I would have to say this was probably the best charter I have ever been on. I would recommend anyone wanting to go fishing while visiting the Dominican Republic book their trip on the Barbie.

We were picked up in a naive van right on time. We went straight to the boat. The Barbie looks so nice and grand. Manuel and José got us loads and off we went. Had a great day. Had 13 strikes.  Caught a 49 foot waahoo and a 39 foot barracuda. We had snacks and plenty to drink.  I️ would highly recommend the Barbie and especially her crew. We troll fish and it was excellent. All your lines were set and cast and new bait all day long. Great day on the water.
