Wahoo were not running, but Captain made sure everyone caught a Baracuda as he trolled the reef / rock structures. Grandsons were thrilled!

Went fishing on July 26, 2015
We booked our trip on only a 1 day notice and the booking process was simple and with quick communication. The captain and 1st mate were excellent. My family of 6 had a wonderful time reef fishing and snorkeling. It was my husband, myself and our children 18, 12, 9 and 7. We would definitely go again!
