Had a great time onboard M/Y Dolphin 1 with the experienced Captain and helpful crew.
Though not in a great fishing ground in waters so close to Male but somehow Captain able to find those good fishing spots.
Managed to haul in great catches ( GTs, Yellowfin, Dogtooth, Wahu, and plenty of garoupas )
The deckhand and chef added to our joy with their pleasant service with smile always : )
The food spread is sumptuous and well served.
We’ll be back again.
