    This was a good day out. The crew were very experienced, the boat suited for fishing and sunbathing and the equipment good. The type of fishing meant that the rods were fixed to the boat and you watched the line. The crew could not do any more, we even got to see some dolphins

    Went out for a great day fishing with Paulo and team. A great day out. The wind and choppy seas did not sop us from having fun catching fish and some good fighting sharks. There may be cheaper options, but this team and their hospitality is worth every cent. Keep it up

    Good experience
    So to start off I hate heights with a passion, but I thought I might as well try to go outside my comfort zone.
