“Excellent! Highly recommend!
We booked a fishing tour, caught fish saw dolphins, 7 whales. The guides were so knowledgeable, friendly and caring. They served us fresh pineapple, watermelon, ice tea, water & beer.”
“We are beginners with fishing and went out for inshore fishing. We had an amazing time! We caught a Black Fin Tuna and a Mahi Mahi. My husband had a great fight with the Mahi Mahi – sadly it went away. But what an experience! Our guide filleted the tuna for us and we’ll grill tonight. We also had great view of dolphins and a sea turtle. Would definitely book this trip again!”
