You don’t need a fishing permit, but you should definitely bring a camera. Book a date, and go get that big one!

Great boat & people. Michelle was in contact with me straight away & looked after us until trip was finished. Very professional.
We had hooked a blue marlin within 20min of lures being in the water.
Our falt we were asleep at the wheel to get the rod.

I took a chance to take my teenage boys on a fishing trip that they wouldn’t forget. Nevgivup was a perfect choice as this time of year is windy and being in a bigger boat proved itself. Charles took us out to the FAD and we found our fish. We were the only boat. Over an hour we shared in catching 6 Mahi Mahi. Such excellent fun. I would highly recommend fishing with this crew. A special thanks to Harry who crewed on this day.
