To trust Gavito's crew and you are in for a great experience. Do take lots of sunblock and maybe a book to read whilst resting a bit in the cabin during the intense midday sunny periods. Stay close to the fishing chair so you will be prepared when you get a bite. Train your hand for some tough reeling in when the fish is on the hook!!

It depends on their experience. It also depends on whether you are solo or in a group. Even inexperienced anglers can try for 1000 lb Marlin.!! We all have to start somewhere. In the end it is down to personal choice. Go with Gavito and Graham Venters and you can try both big game and bottom fishing all in one day.!!

There are no guarantees of catching . That's fishing though. As far as charters are concerned,the Gavito and crew were the best.

Get your trip booked early to guarantee a spot also stay in Calheta to avoid driving long distances and driving through millions of tunnels.

Let the crew know you're first timers and listen when they tell you what to do. Be prepared for a good fight if you want big fish :)

You are fishing for a "fish of a lifetime" so be prepared to wait and perhaps not catch all day. However if you do then wow!!!
