A fantastic half day fishing with Ravi and his crew. Really impressed with how they work as a team, spotting the birds over the bait fish and communicating with the boat driver to get the boat into the best fishing waters. The boat is a big 45' Cruiser and very stable in big seas. We had an amazing day with 21 fish in all. 2 Dorado, 1 Wahoo, 11 Yellow Fin Tuna ( the first of the season) and 7 Bonito. All in all 98KG of Fish. Highly recommended .

A great trip with crew of 2 together with me and the wife. The boat could easily take 8 passanger but if you're 3 you will get the most value for your money. The crew were very skilled an found us some game. Not the biggest ones even if we probably had them on the hooks twice but they escaped. We did land 29 Bonitos and one half tuna, the other half was nicked by a Marlin according to the Skipper but we nerver saw the beast. A well performed half day of fishing and we cav recomend this operator. If any suggestion of improvment that could be information during the tour.

The trip was organized by Andy a fellow hotel guest and it was booked through McCloud who works on the beach and who organizes trips everywhere on the island. Andy had already caught a Marlin before so he let me go first, What a complete and utter gentlemen Andy is and for letting me have the opportunity to boast about this moment for the rest of my life. I honestly in my mind had given up ever being able to catch such an amazing fish and it just blew me away when it was hooked and the 30 minutes bringing the marlin in were just incredible and with the help of captain Jean and the deck hand they made this experience last forever in my mind and also in the pictures as well.
