It started out good while heading out to sea, the waves were really choppy. I experienced sea sickness for the first time. I did not catch any fish. Both which are none of their fault. I definitely intend to do this again, now I know it has to be during a calm sea day. Lol

Great care from the friendly staff on board...the captain also knew where the fish were swimming. My wife caught 8 fish and I was successful too. What is negative, however, is how we humans generally deal with the sea... endless garbage from what I could see... But the trip is recommended....
