This is yet another way to tour the beauty of Barbados and this is the boat to take.  Captain Kevin and mate Daniel made this a truly Bajan experience.  We didn’t catch a lot of fish, but didn’t get skunked either.  Picked up a nice dolphin (Mahi / Dorado) just added to the experience.

Liesa (boat owner) was very friendly, stayed in contact from the moment I inquired about the trip two-weeks prior to my trip.

No luck trolling (being from FL and liking off shore fishing…that’s the way it goes sometimes), but Kevin did a great job of making sure we caught something and make the overall experience fun. First mate Ashley was more than accommodating! Will def recommend to anyone visiting Barbados.

I asked, very clearly, for an experience where we did not want to catch trophy fish, but where I wanted my children (7 and 10) to catch fish.  The mate spent all time fishing, not looking after any of us.  Fortunately, I know how to cut bait and take fish off the hook, but I am not paying money for me to be occupied with this when the captain and mate are sitting around.  They were very nice, just not helpful.  If you want to troll, think may be great.  But bottom fiahing (gave us two handlines and only one decent spinning rod - one half rod)) was just bad.  Also did not have proper tackle.  I have fished Florida Keys and captains understood requests for fish for kids.  We did catch some fish, but more grief than worth.

Sorry to hear you had such a bad and grieful experience with us depiste all the extra that you got with us. We spent more time untangling the lines your kids knotted up truly where the grief came. We also were very accomadating with To and from transportation FREE of charge.We truly got the impression that after the previous two days fishing on another charter where you spent a much larger amount to go fishing (Trolling( and caught no fish That you would have been happy that we took you out and got fish and cleaned them for you.

We should have charged for the additional persons that you brought on board that we did not charge or fishing booker you for.

We aim to please our guest in every respect even when they are very special persons to deal with like yourself. Truly wish you all the best.

These lovely people had faith and waited for us as we got held up in the Bridgetown traffic.  Do yourself a favour and leave about and hour to get there.  We had a great experience and also managed to see the turtles and go snorkelling at the Wreck.  One of our party has never been to Barbados before and saw an undersea world she had never experienced.  A must to go again.

Thannk you Lisa Kevin and Mike

Linda, no problem on the delay and your late arrival, the two most important things to us is that you had fish to take for dinner and that you had a blast with your friends and family after fishing at the turtle swim.

Hope to see you again very soon.

The Captian was a nice guy.

We had an ok day.

However,
There was no safety brief, I had no idea where any of the life vests were.  No idea what to do in an emergency.  There was no float plan registered with the company, in other words no one knew where we were.

Next:

The port side out rigor was broken.  There was no fish finder.  We tangled lines every 20min if not sooner. There was no ice for the catch.  The live well did not work.  The fish box had no refrigeration.  The advertisement about cleaning the fish is false.  I had to do it my self. There is no way more than 4 passengers can comfortably or not take this trip.  There was no First Mate so one of my party had to do that job which included driving the boat in 5 to 6 foot seas.  If this occurred in the US I guarantee that the USCG would have shut down this business on safety an minimal crew manning issues.  Save your money and find another.

Dear Chris,

We are very sorry you had such a terrible time dispute the lovely Tuna that you caught and took home. We are also sorry that we could not provide at the last minute after asking for about 3 days prior to your trip for a meal plan a bucket of KFC for you fresh at 6:30 in the morning huge unreasonable request.

You reviewed our vessel way in advance and choose us after reading our many excellent reviews and looking for a great deal.

We also hope that you enjoyed the special request beverages supplied. Our vessel is fully equipped with all mandatory safety vest. We are registered with the local fishers and have never had any complaints from our many serveral pass guest. Our vessel has to be inspected and must pass all sea worth and coast guard regulations.

We offer to all our guest a very interactive fishing experience and not just a get on the boat sit and be given a line.

You also got off the vessel in such a rush grabbing up the fish as if we were going to ask you to leave it for us and never give the captain time to prepare the catch. Speaking truth is of great importance rather then try to create a misleading, untruthful image.

Thanks you for your review non the less. See Chris holding his hand happy catch.

Family owned charter made sure our trip successful. One barracuda worth the wait! Captain Mario (substitute) very entertaining and first mate Steve hard working. Owner Leisa picked us up from hotel and returned us after we took an ocean dip and stopped for lunch. She really makes it easy for anyone to have a great day on the water! Highly recommend….

The therapy crew are a great and friendly team. They have a modern boat and new evinrude outboard.
Had to reschedule my booking on several occasions due to technical problems with the engine. Even on the day of the booking we were delayed an hour and had to return.
Nevertheless, the crew did their best to prepare the rods, lines and bait. The Capt steered us through some very heavy swells when the wind got up and waves rolled in. We caught 2 tuna; one reasonable size and a small one. They kept us supplied with beer, rum punch, water and snacks when required.
All in all, an enjoyable time.

The thrill of a lifetime for my husband and I.  He was hoping to catch A fish, boy oh boy how thrilled he was to catch 3 Wahoo fish, and wopper of a size I might add.  Ramon the captain and Stevie were both professional and knowledgeable about the waters.  They took the time to answer all our questions, and made sure we had an experience to remember.  There were plenty of drinks and snacks available to us.
We would highly recommend this fishing adventure to anyone.

I took my 22 year old son and we had a great morning on the boat and we caught a 25lb King Fish, we saw 2 or 3 other bigger charters and they caught nothing. We got to take the fish back to our villa and it cooked and tasted wonderful.

Ramon took us out on rather a choppy day, he made sure we were comfortable, well fed and watered throughout the trip, there had been very few fish caught in the days before we went as the wind had changed and it was a bit rough, 40 minutes into the trip we were into a lovely 16lb Wahoo, Ramon was all about the experience, he is a really fun guy to spend tim on the boat with, the boat is very well equipped, the rods and reels are very nice and all very modern and well looked after, it was a fantastic day, this is my first experience of deep sea fishing in the carribean and will be a fantastic memory for life.
Thank you guys for a brilliant day.

Collect as arranged and taken to boat, all sorted and ready to leave ten mins later, bit rough on the sea and fish caught but a bit sparse, but at least we made a few catches, just missed a Barracuda, buts that’s fishing. Good first time out sea fishing and skipper did his utmost to find the best spots and get lines in and remove lines when caught on rocks, good day for both of us and well worth a trip out on Dads Therapy. Thanks again

Had a fantastic experience on a personal 3 hour fishing charter with therapy charters. Mario is a fantastic young captain who worked really hard to ensure we got some hits! He was also more than willing to pass on his knowledge to a beginner like me. Andrew was extremely accommodating with my last minute booking and Leisa organized pick up and drop off from my resort. Had a blast, will definitely be back!

Got picked up bang on time, introduced to the captain and mate,extremely friendly crew, we set off encountered some copy waters, then changed course, we had a bite after 5 mins, the fish got away, we fished for 4 1/2 hours the crew worked there butts off to try and find us fish, never got another bite though. We should have only been out there for 4 hours, the crew were disappointed than we were, as we fished we chatted to the crew we learned so much about the island, anything we asked for we had, if I get a chance to go again while I’m here I will, overhaul it was a great experience, I would recommend it to anyone, got back to shore our ride was waiting to take us back to the hotel, the owners met us as we got off the boat, again they were more upset than us that we hadn’t caught something, again great day out.
