Went fishing on Sunday, March 25, 2018

Family day for fishing - crew took great care of us and shifted the trip as the weather and our needs changed.  Saw whales, incredible views of Cape Town, Robben Island and other sea going vessels.  Caught a bunch of reef fish and the kids had a blast.

Crew were very nice, unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish but that happens. Not so good that the engine on the boat kept failing

Good evening Jordan,

Thanks for the feedback. I have spoken to Capt Kevin, and he explained to me about the dirty fuel that occurred on your way back home. We have discovered that there was dirty fuel supplied to us.

Please accept out most humble apologies for this issue. We have managed to resolve it. I will contact you in the morning, to discuss a way of compensating for the slightly delayed trip home. Thanks for your patience

Yours in fishing

Thanks Mark for the kind words. We love to encourage youngsters into the sport of angling, so it is wonderful to hear the family had fun.

We greatly look forward to having you onboard again, when you are next in cape town.

Yours in fishing,
Captain Byron
