The perfect fishing trip. We caught a 108kg tuna on day 1 then bagged out on the last day. Steve and Jason were great. Everything was organised for us including accommodation. We have already booked the next trip.

The crew got us onto the fish, with good gear and great bait. They do most of the work, which avoids tangled lines (and is fine for a 4 hour charter). All 5 of us caught a snapper (4 were over 2').

Thanks Chris. Sometimes difficult to guarantee the fish will be biting but we always try out best to land on the money. More than happy to help next time you need a charter
