It was a slow start with no fish caught in the first 30 minutes. After this lots of fish mainly grassy and coral trout... More

Excellent fishing charter for those who are either experienced or inexperienced. Adam our skipper was friendly, funny and helpful. The boat is well set up and the tour was well priced. Came home with a large King Fish, a coral trout and a stripy. You keep what you catch.

Great experience from the time we booked. Professional communication calling me a few days before to confirm. Was so great to find a company that was flexible with our times as our cruise was a bit late arriving. All of us had a great time caught lots of reef fish and hooked onto something we fought for half an hour... More

If you are looking for a "full day" fishing trip forget this one as it comprises two part days with a return trip to the marina for a lunch which, to be fair, is substantial. If the weather/wind is unfavourable your "days fishing" could amount to a mere 4 to 4 and a half hours fishing in total out of... More
