No fish, though that is not necessarily the crews fault. The Captain was unfriendly, no inter-action for the whole trip. Also, no music, nothing to do but sit in a hot, stuffy, noisy cabin. The Captain should invest in a good fish finder. Very disappointing...More

I didn't know what to expect, but was happily surprised with a nice boat ride, and towards the end the fun of watching a young man ( about 12 years old) land a 26 pound spearfish. The captain worked hard to find fish for us,...More

No fish, but captain and crew were great. Had lots of stories and kept us entertained. Still an amazing way to spend the morning.
