Happy customers

Thanks again for a fantastic day out fishing on Wednesday.

It was really an expected bonus to catch the marlin.

I am sure that its an experience that Kevin will remember for the rest of his life.

Alan Gower

I had a wonderful time with your Skipper and his son as deck-hand!

They were more than professional and made me as novice, feel comfortable and relaxed at all times.

They put me onto fish – and I am a happy camper!
