The trip was really great and glad we chose it - well worth the cost of the trip. Going to 5 different locations was really great and the view from the lookout gave us awesome views.More

We had perfect conditions for our fishing trip and great guides. The only downside that only one edible fish was caught amongst 10 people. On our way back we did notice the Renegade fishing charter had more success than us on the day.

Thanks for your review Rick K! We're glad that you enjoyed nice conditions for your fishing trip. Sorry, we can never guarantee fish, and there's always a bit of friendly competition between us and Renegade, keeps us wanting to strive higher! Thanks for coming!
