Went fishing on Wednesday, July 6, 2016

We went out for a five hours hoping to catch tuna and/or Dorado mainly. We had zero bites, which felt a bit disappointing of course. However it’s totally understandable. Getting big fish requires luck as well. No matter how experienced the skipper, he can’t make tuna appear out of thin air. Sometimes the fish don’t bite.

But there are things that owners, skipper and crew can control.
Here are some pros and cons of our experience.

On the negative side:
- One of the two engines had trouble starting so we got out of port an hour late. We were compensated with an extra hour of fishing in fairness, but the engines stopped on a several of occasions and were tricky starting up again, once even coming back to port with meeting traffic. That wasn’t great.
- Snacks and soft drinks were supposed to be included but we were offered none though out the whole day, which turned out to be longer than expected due to engine problems.  A bag of crisps, a soft drink or a tuna sandwich - it doesn’t do much damage to the profit margin but it lifts the customer experience considerably. Worth noting perhaps when you’re charging premium price.

On the plus side:
- The boat was very sturdy and well equipped with fishing gear.
- The skipper was portuguese, but spoke english very well. He was a pretty nice guy who seemed to know what he was doing.
- We got to see some blue sharks in the surface and lots of albatrosses around the boat made for some entertainment.

As we arrived in port we were told that a full day (8hours in stead of 5) was necessary to have any real chance for big game.
Perhaps could be pointed out in the listing or mentioned before departure? Especially if the charge is €600.
