Capt boots was a very nice guy he picked us up at the port just like he said he would not a problem there but when you call it a half day fishing trip and you fish for a hour and you troll with 2 lines out pretty sure at no time was the captain thinking we were gonna catch

We went for a half day charter. I’ve been on many charters over the years but this was the worst I have ever been on. The boat was a houseboat, not a fishing boat. The captain and his mate were more interested in playing on their cell phones than they were in locating fish. We

So sorry we didn't catch fish! We always use the right bait (ballyhoo) and the right equipment. Our boats are trawlers (this time we used the Grand Banks 36ft, not a houseboat, but you're right, not a Hatteras of Bertram type of boat) which we indicate on our website and on Viator, as well as the fact that there's no functional washroom. I don't recall having pulled my cell phone, maybe our mate did and we're sorry if he did. We had 3 lines out, maybe nobody noticed as no one of the guests showed much interest for the rods & reels which were brand new Penn Senators & International, something fishermen do when purchasing a deep sea fish trip. Anyway, we are so sorry that we did not live up to your expectations. And again, we do apologize deeply for not having been able to catch fish on this day!

My family and I had a very nice time with Lars. He seems to be a great guy and very knowledgeable about the island. Communicating with him prior to our visit was easy and he was quick to answer my questions. I bet his sunset cruises are terrific. That said, fishing was

Thanks for your review! With regard to the hard cover; we get many requests to provide for sunshade, reason for the addition. It has not kept us from getting fish in adequately, unfortunately we couldn't show proof of that on this trip ;( After your review, we will see if we can make it adjustable although even with adjustment, the trawler will remain a trawler ;) The Caribbean Seas are definitely not 'lake like' so we do not recommend fishing here to customers that have weak stomachs. This group (family of 4, 2 of them kids) was great and held on like experienced captains! Thanks again, also for the great tip!!

Besides a nice private adventure, supported by informative crew and great stuff to see and do, it's usually the chemistry with customers which adds to the success of a trip. Thanks Ronald, Maggy and Rebecca, for being great guests, like we usually have from the Big Apple!

Lars was a great guide! I reached out to Lars a few weeks before our arrival in Curacao and he was very responsive. He set up two chartered fishing trips for us. We wanted both deep sea fishing and fly fishing. Lars is the only guide we could find on the island that offered fly
