Shaun and Chad gave us a great day of fishing! Fantastic experience that the 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed. Hadn't had much luck for most of the day until we were heading home and Shaun spotted a feeding frenzy - had the most exciting half an hour where we caught fish after fish after fish! Five yellow fin tunas and... More

Unbelievable fishing experience. From the moment the lines hit the water we were catching huge yellowfin tuna. We had 2 lines in the water and both of them had fish on the entire time. Ended up with 11 yellowfin in the boat after about 3 hours. Plus we saw a ton of whales, sharks, ocean sunfish, etc. Highly recommend a... More

Can't write high enough praise for these guys (Skipper Sean and crew (Chad and Steve))... they worked so hard to not only find me a Yellowfin but to ensure I caught what is probably the biggest fish I'll ever catch (at least 60kg + a 30, 3 smaller ones, a Longfin and an unexpected but hugely welcome Dorado). Not many... More
