Went fishing on Friday, September 9, 2016

Didn’t get to go out with DNA!! Booked the trip and paid deposit on 14/06/2016 to fish on 09/09/2016 with DNA.  Received a ph call from a different charter late in the afternoon the day before our fishing trip, being advised that DNA could not take us out and this other charter would take us in stead!! DNA did not contact us at all with an explanation or apology.

Hi Diana,
Please accept our apologies that you were not called and advised of the change - we had unexpected issues with our boat and we were flat out trying to get things sorted in time for your charter. Unfortunately we were unable to get things fixed in time so organsied another reputable charter operator to take you so you wouldn’t miss out. I’m sorry we didn’t call and will take your advice on board if this ever happens again.
We really hope you had a great day out!
Kind regards,
Erin & Duane
