Fantastic day of fishing. Highly recommended for couples of all ages and families with slightly older children. The boat can be a little bumpy for babies. My teenage son loved did!

Alan and his team made this into a lovely day. A fantastic fishing experience to catch tuna. Everything was nicely arranged - the boat trip, the fish hunting and we caught two 50 kg (!) tunas and some smaller one.
