Hi Susan,
Thank you for your review! I understand your trip was not what you expected. I am happy to hear more what the worst things were, if you want to share that with us.
Thank you for your time and feedback.

Kind regards,

A perfect day spent out at sea! Skipper Jeff made the whole experience fun for everyone and ensured we all had at least one catch. I will definitely be recommending this to everyone!

Hello James - thankyou for your feedback, it was unfortunate the fishing was slow that morning, better luck next time you visit the Bay.

Great guys with a lot of experience - very helpful and patient (we are beginners). We had a very good time fishing and plenty of fish for dinner :-) We would do it again!
