The day we went out the water was dirty and we didn’t catch a thing, would have been good if we had the chance to reschedule to a clearer day, a lot of money to pay to not catch anything and have that game fishing experience, luck of the sea I guess.

Thanks for your comments Vanessa but unfortunately sometimes we do get dirty water, as you said it is the luck of the sea and it changes daily.

I had a trip booked by P&O Cruise when I passed through Port Villa, which P&C cancelled.
Top marks to Fishing Booker.com for arranging through the internet within 18 hrs a replacement boat and crew. Hence 3 of us went fishing straight off the cruise Ship to the “Crusoe Fishing team on Reel Capture No fish but they worked hard within the time constraints to make it happen.
2 strikes plenty of fish life. I will be back

My husband and I had a fantastic day, we both caught Wahoo and we can’t thank captain Richard and the crew enough for making our day so enjoyable.
We would highly recommend Crusoe to any one wanting to fish in Vanuatu, with a special thanks to Michelle and Charles for being great hosts and very professional.
