Went fishing on Tuesday, June 21, 2016

That was my first time at the sea for all four of us. I had only freshwater fishing experience.

I have gotten seasick at the open water, so we had to go to the crystal lagoon to get me well.

The captain was polite and friendly, everything was provided as advertised.

Dear Daniel,

Many thanks for your review.  Sure the open sea is not always calm and especially when you stop to fish on the bottom the boat will rock and roll even in calm waters.

Jamie told me that you still got some nice fish which you released again.  I am sorry to hear that you felt seasick but glad that the skipper did his best to help you out.

Many thanks again for coming on our boat and just an advise, if you are not so good at sea, try trolling, that is fishing with a long line behind the boat which does not stop but keeps going.  This way it is more probable that you do not get sea sick.

Wish you all the very best and thanks again.

Went fishing on Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Most of us has not been fishing before. The captain showed us what to do, we caught several small fish. We then had a trip to the caves, the crystal lagoon and the blue lagoon and swam in the sea. It was a wonderful experience and the captain was great.
