We were only able to catch 2 Mahi Mahi, but we didn't get completely skunked. Our captain Lance and his ship mate worked tirelessly, but the fish didn't want to cooperate well. The crew was great and hopefully we will slay them next time.

Went for a 4 hour fishing trip on our honeymoon and were lucky enough to bring in a 200 lb Marlin! Lance, Kalani, and Gabe were fantastic and gave us an unforgettable experience. Would definitely go back!
