Booked 3 days in August 2017 with Abyss. Weather was a bit inclement due to the storms around the area, but I have been out in much much worse in other countries, but due to size of boat and safety issues the Captain decided the first trip would have to be cancelled. Next trip, 2 days later was also cancelled, these decisions are always late the night before, which meant we had no time to organise alternative things to do the next days. Also we booked 3 trips as there was an offer of buy 3 days for the price of 2. So at 1200 euros for 3 days, it worked out at 400 euros a day. Due to the cancellations, our single excursion cost full price, so 600 euros for the day. I think that Abyss could have more empathy and maybe extend the day from 8 hours to 10 ? or knock a bit off , say 500 euro for the day, as I had initially booked for 3 days. Apart from this, the day I did have, was worth the wait. The young crew were experienced and they both worked well throughout the trip. We didn't do the usual trolling, but instead used a drifting method, where you pick a spot and release lines with small dead bait fish and attach a balloon to the line and allow several lines to cover a small area. The boats equipment can pick up fish movement below and around boat and then it is fingers crossed and hope the Tuna take the bait. I caught 2 fish ( 55 kg and 105 kg ) the second putting up a good 40 minute battle. The sunrise was amazing ( Blood Red ) and hanging around a sardine boat with a zillion seagulls awaiting the odd errant fish, was a spectacular sight. Dolphins were constantly appearing and one in particular, we named "Dave" played below and around us frequently, with crew throwing fish over the opposite side of boat to the lines , to try and keep him away from the lines. All in all , the day was fantastic and maybe Abyss could have more empathy with customers, especially if they book multiple trips.

I bought the tuna fishing trip for a birthday present to my boyfriend and it was worth every cent. I could arrange everything via email and they respond very quickly and they were kind and give me all the informations I needed. My boyfriend had a great time, he said that the crew was very proffesionall, hepful and kind and he cant stop talking about the trip. He said it was the best trip ever. He had luck and with a helpful instruction from the crew caught 2 m long and 105 kilo tuna fish.

I went on a tuna fishing adventure with Abyss fishing charter. The boat was nice and had plenty of space. The crew explained and showed me everything I wanted to know. I caught a fairly big tuna and had a decent fight pulling it up. It was an awesome experience that the crew and I shared together. Overall, I had a pleasent trip whit an adrenaline rush in the end!

This trip must be on your to do list !! First off the crew was amazing, food was delicious, sunrise that you will never forget and never ending stilless of the sea!!  They learned us everything about tuna fishing from scratch! You don't have to know nothing about fishing to go on this trip. Just relax and enjoy the experience ! The boat is very well equipped and comfortable so you can also sunbathe.You are surrounded by the sea and it is soo peacefull..... untill the tuna bites and then adventure starts :D ... You get on your position and the crew will guide you, when that happens the adrenaline really kicks in and now it's only you and the beast !! It was a lifetime experience and i would definitely recommend it !! 

We booked the trip as a family of novices - we have never been sea fishing before. The crew made us feel comfortable and explained well what we should do. Inspite of all being complete beginners we managed to catch enough fish to have a nice team grill after the event. General consensus that we all enjoyed it and would do it again. The only negative comment is that we were expecting help gutting and cleaning t he fish but that did not happen. Apart form that we had a great time and would certainly book again.
