Hi…. I waited 2 weeks so as to ‘calm down’ and be objective.  The all day fishing excursion for $1500 +  turned out to be a very expensive 7 hour boat trip.  Instead of the 41 foot sportfishing boat we ended up on a 29 foot center console boat!    They were not rigged for any serious fishing…..2 casting rods,  old lures….a spinning outfit.  We caught NO fish….the two Colombian crew cauight 2 4 inch fish using hand lines!!  So, although everyone was nice…..especially Ashley in her role of translator…the trip was very, very disappointing.  A partial refund or deeply discounted future trip is certainly reasonable.  I will be awaiting your res[ponse.  Thanks   Ron

Im sorry for your experience but I stated that there was an issue with me being there due to the hurricane that hit our home in Florida. I will honer a free fishing trip to ease your concerns. The island hopping experience with lunch at Gente de Mar wasnt mentioned. Please understand that im the only real captain that can provide a fishing experience like that you would expect from south florida. See you soon Ron.
Best,
    Capt. John
