Though the boat and the equipment was basic and some of it had seen better days. The expertise, helpfulness and friendliness of Colin and Phil made up for it. We hit some pretty big swells, but Colin navigated those well and took us some where a bit calmer! Overall a very enjoyable day!

Prompt confirmation and discussion of pick up options from Colin
Pick up as arranged
Good safety and fishing briefing
Great crew encouragement from Phillip
No fish which was disappointing for an 8 year old!
Would be good if there was an option for a parent to pay and a child is free or a reduced price given the parent is unable to fish and only one rod was used.

It was a shame that young Jeremy didn’t catch a fish.  The others aboard caught 20 fish between 8 anglers.
All our vessels carry 20 to 30 fully rigged rods at all times to ensure there are enough for everyone.
I was unaware that there was someone so young until after the booking had been completed but it was through Fishing Booker.  When clients book direct we do offer discounts to minors but when using agents we pay a percentage ie: the deposit to the agent and find it hard to reduce any further.
Thanks for your review
