Participated in the Beginner Angler’s Course. My instructor for the day, Franky, was incredibly friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable! Patsy from customer service was very helpful and answered all my queries promptly.

This course is ideal for someone who has never fish before and wants to learn things right from the start, in a systematic way. Raymond and Francis are great instructors. Patient to explain the complicated knots and provide guidance. It was also a very memorable experience to get out of the mainland and breathe in some fresh air on an offshore island. Best part is you are able to use your sg rediscover voucher for this fabulous experience. Highly recommended for family, friends and couples! Oh did I forget to mention, I caught a puffer fish! Was a total surprise to wrap up this fantastic experience in this way.

Fishing seems daunting at first but the instructor Aloysius made everything simple for everyone and easy to understand and I was able to catch around 20 fishes even though I knew absolutely nothing at the start. He didn't just taught us how to fish, he helped us understand fishing at a deeper level as well.

It was an extremely informative course despite having some experience previously fishing. I had a lot of fun and learnt about all the various knots for fishing. Aloysius was my instructor and he was very helpful throughout.

There is only 1 toilet on the island which is a problem that cant be helped unfortunately. Please do bring more plastic bags for your trash and other items. If you catch a fish that you'd like to keep or cook, your instructor will be able to pack it for you which was a really pleasant surprise. I assumed it was all catch and release.

It was an amazing day out at lazarus island to do fishing. For future guests, remember to bring adequate food and water as there is no food stalls on ths island. You should also bring extra plastic bags for trash as you need to bring back your trash to ths mainland for disposal.

I had aloysius as my instructor and he was wonderful. He helped everybody with their knots and was very knowledgeable; identifying fishes without even referring to anything. He was very friendly and approachable which made the course that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended to go for this course and learn about fishing from the academy.

Highly recommended for people who does not have any experience in fishing. From this course, we get to know the equipment and also the fishes itself. Starting with tying knots (so fun .... and challenging for a person with no experience) to setting up the fishing hooks, weights, rod etc and sometimes we will fumble but the instructor -Aloysius is always there to personally guide and help.

After the theory, the practical session was even better, from cutting and putting the bait on the hook and finally waiting eagerly for the first bite. "It was easier said then done", again Aloysius is ever patient to guide us and show us the feeling when the fish is biting so that we can then "swoop" up the fish .... and finally .. the fish starts getting hooked and there was excitement amongst us.

Though it was fun, one important lesson that I got from this course was to always respect and do not abuse the fish environment and the fish themselves. If we dun intent to eat the fish .. release it. The rich attitude and behaviour of fishing is utmost important is echoed and motto by the people running the course.

GREAT JOB !!
