Our group had a great time, the deckhand Hunter was the best. The Capt. Don put us on to fish and knew where the fish were, which resulted in landing some nice fish including a 25lb haibut The boat was clean and the equipment was in excellent shape. We would go with the Sole man again.Thanks again Don and Hunter we had a great time.

Don is very friendly and we chanced upon him one day before the actual day of fishing at the Pier. He makes sure that we know how to get to the Pier and guided us on the mode of transport to take so early in the morning to reach the Pier on time. There are 3 boys and 3 adults on this trip. The kids enjoyed themselves so much and they have learnt so much about the marine life living at the bay. The adults caught a different range of fishes as compared to the tropical waters we have back home in Singapore. Don whipped up a quick and fresh grilled fish on board with their catch. All of then raved about his cooking and want to replicate the same taste when we reached home. Five stars for this trip!

Overall it was a great trip with my team from work. The crew went the extra mile to try and get us all good catches for the day. Would certainly consider doing this again in the future.
