Great boat, skipper knows what he is doing, most enjoyable day. The only complaint I have is sore arms from reeling in all the fish. Thanks once again Steve and Wendy. We will be back again for more. Regards Sandra & Paul

I simply cannot recommend this business enough. Booking (from overseas) was handled efficiently, professionally with a lovely friendly touch. Great skipper that is super experienced, knows where to go and he's a good bloke. Will definitely book again!
