We booked at the same day and the crew was able to arrange our trip. Despite being a shared trip we were lucky it was only us, my wife; our 3 years old son and me.

We were staying away from the location of the boat but we called and arranged transportation from and to our hotel island.

We started around 4:30 and did some trolling for 2 hours but the fish didn’t bite on trolling. After that we did bait line fishing. We caught a lot of fish ( gt, kingfish, snapper, grouper and more ) and lost more and it was a nice experience.

The crew served us with refreshments, fruits and some snacks. We had our 3 years old son with us and the crew was helpful and even helped watch him.

If you want to go a day with family or even a group of friends to fish i recommend going with this amazing crew.
