The guides were amazing. My husband caught 3 fish! Glad we did the 4 hour and not 8 hour. We went in March and it’s super windy so a lot of waves. Loved the trip itself and scenery even without the fishing!

Our pilot was awesome! Everyone was very friendly and the views on our flight were beautiful. Complimentary champagne was a nice touch.

Very good family type fishing trip if you are a beginner. Crew was great and always available to assist.

The crew was fantastic ! I think everyone really enjoyed themselves. And we caught numerous fish.

Great experience ! The people working were Very helpful and we had a wonderful time
