I started fishing as a child, when I used to live with my grandmother. There was a small lake close to her house, and I would go down with a yoyo and catch small freshwater fish. Years later, I moved to the coast in Punta Cana and learned tactics for offshore and bottom fishing, got a job as a first mate, and started fishing on a boat.

Requested & Confirmation showed Shekinah 42 ft with picture, this is not the boat we got. Requested to go Bottom fishing on confirmation & crew took us Charter fishing, crew understood very little English, poor communication amongst staff and of course we didn’t catch one fish which didn’t need to be added to the already disappointment.

Replied to this review on January 19, 2018

thank you for writing your review . Sorry for the misunderstanding, our boat is not listed for bottom fishing in fishing booker it is a 42 footer boat so with this boat is not posible to fish inshore so concerning the Shekinah boat it was a mistake on giving you the Interepido which is the same size by error but one boat make not difference fishing is fishing sometimes you get some times not., most of the fisherman when go out and got fish arrive happy and when not write negatives reviews. Concerning language we speak Spanish in D republic and our crew speak just a little to communicate on board.

Thank you for your kind visit.

Captain and crew were very helpful and nice. They were able to catch fish with bad equipment. They were always cleaning the boat or tending to our needs and both were 10 HR trips.
